SE-TrayMenu – System tray Application launcher

SE-TrayMenu is a dead simple application launcher for Windows. It resides on the system tray and gives access to a pop-up menu from where you can select the application you want to run.

You can add any elements to the pop-up menu by simple dragging and dropping. By all elements I mean – programs, folders, files, URLs, and more.

There are a number of things I like about SE-TrayMenu.

1. Customizability: It’s appearance is completely customizable. You can change the layout from Menu list with icons, to Menu list without icons, show a single column of icons or two columns of icons. You can also customize the size of the icons, whether to show the program name at the bottom of the icon or on the side, the amount of margin you want between the items etc.


There are also various skins and color schemes. And yes, the color schemes are entirely customizable too including fonts, borders and highlight color.

2. Fexibility: The program can be configured to launch the menu either with a single click or by simply hovering the mouse pointer over the program icon.

Applications can be launched both by normal left-click or right-click, although it would have been better if we could access a context menu for the application through the right-click. You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to the applications you have added and arrange their order of appearance.

3. Portability and Support: It’s portable and supports Windows 2000 through Windows 7. The program blends well with Vista and 7’s glossy, transparent look.

I would say, SE-TrayMenu is definitely one of the better applications launchers that I have tried till now. It’s simple to set up and easy on system resources.


  1. I'm sorry, but I don't need this app for various reasons:

    1. I can pin items to the Start Menu.

    2. Portability: I can create a folder of shortcuts and add it to the taskbar in menu form. No additional programs required.

    3. In Windows 7, I can pin items to the taskbar.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
