General Software Discussion / Re: What's your favorite launch bar? Your favorite features? Missing Features?« on: January 09, 2006, 03:52 PM »
I currently use PS Hot Launch ( http://www.pssoftlab.com/pshl_info.phtml ), which is not strictly speaking a launch bar, but a fully customizable and freeware menu program that sits in the System Tray and effectively replaces the Start Menu and Quick Launch. In addition to listing and grouping applications as you like, you can do the same with documents, folders, web pages, and email addresses. Configuration is easy with drag and drop.I have used hot launch for years, and I echo that since I started using Find and Run I mainly use it for active locations, sort of a shortcut navigator.

As for what I would want in a launcher:
1. Drag and Drop configuration
2. cascading sub menus
3. One of my favorite features of true launch bar (which I still use on my home machine) is the ability to drag a file into a folder located on any of my submenus.
4 Access to windows featured locations (like network places, or the control panel) with a single click
I guess that, in general, I would want it to be easy and fast to set up, and just as easy to change, along with being easy to transfer from one computer to another.
