Free Launch Bar - The Quick Launch replacement

The Quick Launch bar is one of the most helpful shortcut utility in Windows. It's rather strange that it is disabled by default. The quick launch menu is more easier to use and launch application than the standard start menu. I would pick the quick launch bar over dock bars and application launchers, anytime. If you are a quick launch lover like me, then you will love it's replacement even more.

Free Launch Bar is a free replacement for the standard Quick Launch bar. All functions presented in Quick Launch are also in Free Launch Bar. However, the Free Launch Bar is fully compatible with Quick Launch because it uses the same folder for shortcuts. But there is one huge difference. Free Launch Bar allows you to combine your shortcuts into groups. This feature looks like popup menus. This vastly improves the management of your shortcuts and save working space on your desktop.

Free Launch Bar help you to organize your shortcuts into nice menus. You do not need to open stupid dialog boxes to add, remove or rearrange shortcuts - all you need Drag&Drop or right-click shortcut.

Free Launch Bar is a lite version of True Launch Bar (price $19.90) which is far superior than Windows quick launch as well as the Free Launch Bar. Some advanced features like plugins, virtual folders, backup and skin support, are missing in Free Launch Bar and is available only in True Launch Bar. The main features of Free Launch Bar are
  • Creating menu on taskbar with unlimited levels
  • Compatibility with Windows XP
  • Integration into Windows Shell
  • Low resources
  • Compatibility with Quick Launch
  • Creating separators to group shortcuts inside menus
  • Different view modes
  • Hotkeys
  • Using PNG pictures as icons
  • Support of Windows Drag&Drop technology. To add shortcuts you can simply drag them into menus
  • Improved tips. You can include some of HTML tags into button description.
