LaunchBar Commander / What's great about competition...
« on: December 11, 2007, 12:01 AM » the fact that sometimes they offer great ideas to transform one of the greatest piece of software into ______________ (I'm already out of word!) piece of software.

Take a look at this page and imagine being able to launch LBC the same way!

It would be simply fantastic. LBC stays hidden in the tray and by holding down both mouse button (or any other configuration?) you can access your whole setup within LBC. No keyboard shortcut just mouse(r) stuff. No 48 shortcuts limitation but my own LBC configuration under my fingers.

As you can see, I'm a great fan of the Launch Bar Commander. I've been playing with computer for the last 10 years or so and, with a dual monitor setup, LBC is the greatest thing that have happen to me. This pair gives you the opportunity to get the best of your machine, no matter what you're doing.


LaunchBar Commander / Out of system resources
« on: May 20, 2007, 10:10 PM »
Hi everybody,

Is there anyone of you who ever get this message on LBC startup, "Out of system resources" on a 4 Gb ram machine with 1.3 Tb of hard disk space?

I press OK and... that's all, no LBC, nothing.

How can I live without my launch bar commander? Where are all my programs now !     ;D

Thanks in advance.


Wow! That's a great tool that I'm starting to use right NOW!

I can figure how much time I spend working on my girlfriend Web Site and then deal these precious minutes (hours!) for some AirLoose !  :o)

Keep up this great application.

BTW, could we, in a future version, access the settings directly from the WorkCoach window, it's a bit annoying to go back to the tray for fixing some new tasks.

Thanks and congratulations!


I really like your LaunchBar Commander, it's powerful and I can configure it the way I want my setup to be.

Just being able to have two icons (or even more) in the tray, one for the games and one for the applications, drop down menus and menus inside menu inside menus, that's really great.

As a matter of fact, I'm questioning myself if I really need the feature I used to like so much about ExeGo, the keyboard shortcut.

I still hate docking bars (for me, the less stuff on the desktop is the best) but I really like the look and functionality of the tray icons.

Most of all, I must say that I'm very impressed by the way you're taking care of your user. I've been coached, supported and all of my questions answered in lesser time than I took to write them.

I realize that you're taking very seriously suggestions from your user and that's quite amazing.

I'm very impressed and my donation is probably one of the best investment I made in my computer history.

Thanks again and keep up this great work.

Hi Mouser,

I'm running version 1.60.06

The icon doesn't show in the left pane and I tried using different icons and there's no difference.

I don't think I can send you my file, it's over 20 Meg in size!

Finally I tried the tree consistency and it's validated succesfully (955 nodes)!

Thanks again

Hi Mouser,

No, I won't talk about «you know what» but I have a problem with LBC.

I've built plenty of command in  LBC but now, every time I had a new software, LBC refuse to recognize the icon. I can see it in the right pane of the preferences but it doesn't appear on the right side neither that in any menu of the application once the preferences window is closed.

Is there any limitation to the number of icons I can have in LBC?

Thanks for the help once again.


I'm a big fan of Movie Organizer from

There's plenty of features, thumbnail of the cover from their site, a huge database of data and a link with Imdb one of the best site related to movie.

Movie Organizer is free, allow you to print report of your movies the way YOU want them.

It's been my favorite for the last four or five year.

Hi Mouser,

Thanks again for the help.

I know that you kept in mind my wish for a keyboard shortcut for accessing LBC.

May I push my luck a little? I realize that LBC will remember the last place it was on the next Windows launch. Could we get an option command that allow the user to force LBC to load minimized in the tray, as a launch bar or as a window that would keep the settings we fixed.

I made myself a nice window with three rows and four columns of icons but if I attach this window as a side bar, when I undock it, I loose my layout.

Finally, did I talk to you about a keyboard shortcut that could pop-up or pop-out LBC?    :P

Have a nice day

That's a quick answer!

Were you next to your keyboard waiting for my reply?  ;D

I really do appreciate the kind of guy you are and that's what's still fascinating me about the computer world. A bunch of maniac having fun, sharing and helping each other.

Fortunately for me, you're one of those wiz who doesn't think or at least doesn't make the rest of us fell like dummies!

Thanks and keep up your great work

OK! You've got me!

That's effectively what I meant.   :-[

Maybe I should have spent a little more time reading and playing with LBC.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to answer my request and, most of all for your patience in repeating for the nth times the basics about your LBC.

I really appreciate it.

I just finished my setup and I'm very satisfied of the look and the use of it.

If you ever find a way, if it's not already done (!), to make LBC pop-up on screen at the call of a keyboard shortcut and then disappear (go back in the tray) when I've chosen my application, I would be very satisfied.

Have a great weekend

Thanks for taking the time to answer me.

Maybe if I could add a text description with the main menu Icon
could you explain what you mean?

Would it be possible to assign some text, as a label, to an icon to categorize my... categories  i.e. the logo of Firefox and the mention Internet (user defined) for all my software related to the... internet.

For the toggling visibility, it would be great if LBC was hiding itself (user parameter) as soon as it detect the launch of an application from within LBC.

Thanks again

Hi Mouser!

I really appreciate discovering your LBC. If you have a chance maybe you could take a look at ExeGo version 3.1.


I don't like tool bars docking every where on my screen (so why am I bothering with LBC?)

I'm using ExeGo and it hides as soon as I choose an application to launch. I even assign the shortcut to a button on my mouse.

What I really like about LBC, is the way I can interact with it, a small icon for categorizing my stuff and then the menu that fall down and let me choose the application I need instead of a bunch of icon that I have to remember or, after a certain time, don't mean anything to me. If it could minimize as soon as I start my application it would be good. Maybe if I could add a text description with the main menu Icon (I can dream!), it would be great.

I don't have to use it as a docking bar but as an application launcher using the shortcut or maybe a top/bottom left/right screen corner sensor.

Finally, if I could drag my application and have LBC take the path, the icon and the name, THAT would be amazing.

Keep up the great work and thanks for reading me.


BTW, your Process Tamer is a killer application that solved a lot of headaches to me!
