Launch your Launchy

I have included a Launchy called application in my previous blog post about my favorite Windows applications. And I think it's even worth to write a custom blog post about this fabulous application launcher.

Launchy is an interactive application launcher for Windows. It's like the Start->Run menu on very powerful steroids, and maybe even a bit more. After the first launch of Launchy, it created an index of applications in your Start menu and Desktop. When the indexing is complete, you can press the hot keys combination (by default ALT+SPACE) to bring Launchy's window into the front. It will bring up a nice looking window where it's enough to type just few starting letters of your application and it will start it. I really recommend to give to this application at least a try :-)
