It will list all files and folders in a menu so you can just click and it will open/run. Or you can put QuickJump2016.exe in a folder and create shortcuts to it passing a path to files or shortcuts. It will list all of the files in that path. See QJ Readme.txt for more info.

Example:
Put QuickJump2016.exe in a folder, create a shortcut to it and change the properties adding the path "C:\My Apps". When you double click the shortcut it will list all the files in "C:\My Apps" in a menu.

Screen Shots:

Looks pretty cool... a less visual version of 7stacks! :)

Yes I used 7stacks but it would just run so slow sometimes and take forever to open if I had a lot of apps/files in the folder. I wanted a faster way, so I made this. :-)

My problem with it also, so I'll give this a try!

Wraith, what about removing the ".lnk" from the display?  We don't really need to see the file extension, and it would be less clutter.

I'm confused?  :huh:  Or was this for the author?

Chris, FYI download link above says:

CloudApp
Sorry, no drops live here.

Perhaps the link you clicked was broken or the owner of this drop has deleted it.

the link via website works :up:

Having to figure out a way to download it in Chrome sucks.

Just an FYI- how you get around the malicious warning (even though we haven't checked, we're going to mark it malicious) in Chrome

Quote
I had exactly this problem with an exe file that is downloadable from my web site. Whenever I tried to download the file using Chrome it gave the warning.

The solution I found was to sign up to Google Webmaster Tools and add my site. It took several days for Google to crawl my site, and fill in any information, but I went back today and finally found loads of information there.

Now I can download my file, and there is no malicious warning any more.

It seems that once Google has checked out your site and determined that you are not a bad person, the problem goes away.

Is that link above correct?  I used curl to get around chrome, and got a 301?

UPDATE: For anyone trying the same, the link is a redirect, and the location is in the 301, i.e. http://f.cl.ly/items...1G/QuickJump2016.zip

Yes it is correct. I use https://www.getcloudapp.com/ to host my downloads... Really, not matter what I have used (Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive etc..) the same thing happens... I just stick with CloudApp now.

That's was what I was referring to above.  You can use curl, wget, or such utilities to directly download it.

Update: Added the feature requested in that article. Apps/folders/files can be opened by pressing the corresponding underlined letter for that menu item.

I use MenuApp. It has been there for a long time and is feature rich. But, I am looking for an alternative since it is buggy. Was excited to see QuickJump, but then it does not create sub menus for folders. :(

No QuickJump does not have sub-menus for sub-folders, that is by design. I wanted it to be fast and having to loop through sub-folders and create sub-menus adds a lot of time to creating the menu. I do not think I will ever create sub-menus for folders. What I may do in a future release is make pseudo sub-menus that only show when clicking on the folder menu item. That way they are generated on the fly and will not make it much, if any, slower.

I actually like that it doesn't create sub-menus, and if you do add it, can you make sure to put the option of not using it?

Yep, it's going to be an optional parameter called SubMenus. Was a quick add and I'll be uploading a new version soon.
