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

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  :).
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:
