Find And Run Robot / Re: Including some scripts with next version

i almost included that in the last release.

f&r has an alias feature already that even lets you make groups of programs under an alias.
i will add the right click -> add to alias
exactly as you suggest.

thats a good idea, i will add it.
you can already have it search your ie favorites and launch them by clicking them,
just like launching any app.

but i think i will add the ability to type in a url directly.

i think i will also add ability to specify a custom file explorer and web browser for use in such operations and explore operations.

Find And Run Robot / Including some scripts with next version

I was thinking it would be nice to add some ability to add functions that you could run through F&R robot,
like to be able to things like shutdown computer, etc.

but i was thinking maybe the cleanest most flexible way to do this is not to reinvent new features in f&r but rather use windows scripting and the normal ability of F&R to search shortcuts, and just maybe make it a tiny bit easier to work with.

so i was thinking to include with the next version some basic scripts in a subdir called Scripts, and automatically add this directory by default at the top of the search list with a reasonably high score bias.

scripts might include things like shutting down the computer, or performing operations like reporting disk usage, etc.

so you would hit break and then type "shutdown" and it would find the shutdown script and show it at top, etc.

if anyone has any scripts to recommend or can help me find scripts that would be useful i'd be happy to add them to the next release.

i could also add some minimal functionality to aid in working with scripts (ie editing and adding new ones).


The forums at are open to the public.
You may make posts once you create a profile and login.

There are a couple of forum boards which are for Members Only.  These boards contain the current discount codes for software, as well as occasional beta releases of software, the debates about upcoming award nominees, etc.  These boards are only available to those who have officially joined the site by making a donation (of any amount).

Once you have made a donation your member profile status will be upgraded to Charter Member and you will be able to see the previously invisible boards which are in the same section/category as this one.

Note that when you make a donation, an account here at the forum is not automatically created, you still have to create it, and then I have to upgrade your profile, which usually occurs within a few minutes but could take up to 8 hours.

These members-only boards are our way of encouraging you to make a donation to the site, even if it is only for $1.

We know that it's a pain to donate, and that's why donation-based sites usually fail.  We are trying hard to strike a balance between providing a great site and making enough money to survive, and that's why we're trying these efforts to encourage donations without becoming jerks about it. I hope that makes sense.

And if you make your donation via don't forget to email us ([email protected]) with the info about it since amazon doesn't tell us who donated.
