Launchy 2.5.0


As you have may suggested, the software comes with a minimalist interface. Basically, you have a single field to type the name of the specific application you want to reach. However Launchy supports multiple skins. Once you have installed it, you will find six different outfits for it. However that's not all. If you can't find an appropriate skin, you definitely will, when you visit the Skins section within the developer's production website. There you can find lots of good looking, crazy, fancy, classy, funny skins. Choose the one that will match your OS theme perfectly.

Basic Operations

Working with this tiny app is such pleasure. There are only two things that you need to remember about this handy utility. First you can open/close Launchy once it is within the system tray using the key combo Alt+Space. Please be aware that you can return Launchy back to the system tray using the Esc key. Second since you have entered the app name or part of it just press Enter. Basically, that's all you need to know about this software application.


Launchy 2.5.0 is one of those software alternative that can partly change your OS user experience. If you want to forget about all endless menus that you used to go through in order to reach some tiny applications like the built-in calculator, this app might be the one that can make you do it. It is completely free of charge and doesn't slow down your PC at all.
