I'm going to try to do more screencast videos of some of my programs; this thread is for LaunchBar Commander.

Here's video #2 for LaunchBar Commander, showing how to create your first dock/launchbar.

Video #3 demonstrates how to trigger launch bars as pop-up menus using hotkeys, and also demonstrates how to use a launch bar that has been minimized to the system tray:

Video #4 shows how you can drop files onto dock buttons, and how you can access command/folder properties using the right-click context menu:

mouser,
Thanks for taking the time to do these screencasts.  I've only been able to watch #2 so far but it already explained a couple of things I've been wanting to do.  I'll be watching the rest tonight.

Thanks so much for these videos.  I've now watched #2 and #3.  I found #3 especially interesting, since I had never thought much about assigning hot keys, but after watching the video I assigned hot keys to the Everything search engine and to System Restore (i.e., the screen that lets me either use a restore point or set a new one).   I suspect that mostly I'll continue to access LBC from the system tray and launch programs from it with the mouse, but I love the idea that I can also launch programs via the hot keys.

Again, thanks for this terrific program and for the very helpful videos.  And for this wonderful site, and and and...  Thmbsup

Cool videos  smiley.
I saw them two days ago, then I created a bar adapted to my workflow and now is the launcher I use. I'll open a thread to detail my experience, many thanks !

Great idea and some really useful info on LBC. Particularly liked #7 on Behaviour and Appearance and #3 on Hotkeys.

A pointer on Appearance that answered an issue for me. In my setup I use small icons, caption style to right with caption alignment left. I had quite a few tabs in my toolbar and found that if you uncheck "All same width" then the tab only takes up as much space as it needs. ( i.e avoids "Nero" taking up as much room as "TuneUp Utilities 2010", for example )   This enabled me to squeeze in a few more tabs on the toolbar.

LBC is a great app - many thanks for all the good work, Mouser.  Thmbsup
