Find and open any program, file or folder with ease using Launchy.

Why you need it


Very often, getting work done efficiently is reliant on being able to quickly find the programs and files you need to complete the task at hand. But with an ever-expanding contingent of installed programs and saved documents to sift through, that's often easier said than done.

What you need is Launchy. This simple little app opens up when you hit Alt + Space and allows you to quickly search for the program you need – or the file, folder or bookmark, in fact. Launchy displays a list of matches that is automatically populated as you type, so it's not actually necessary to type the full name of the program before it appears. Highlight it and hit enter and Launchy loads it up, ready for use.

It's very straightforward and easy to use, but should you want to do more then there are plenty of useful plugins to extend its functionality further. There's Killy, which kills processes instead of launching them, Mathy Resurrected, which adds an advanced calculator to Launchy, plus more.
