Previously we mentioned about the Hawkscope that allows fast access to files and folders, but if you would like to have additional capability to be able to launch any favorite program from system menu besides opening shortcuts or folders, here is an alternative free software utility that you can consider. Named as Appetizer, it is a tiny and neat application launcher that can be easily accessible to launch any application in simple clicks.
Once download and execute the software utility, a simple icon based menu will be displayed on your computer screen. Simply click on the ‘+’ sign will browse for any program, shortcut or folder and add them into the convenient dock. In any later stage when users would like to have quick access to the program or shortcut, just click on the respective icon and it will be launched immediately. The interface is fully customizable as users can configure the icon size, orientation and skin type as well as transparency at own preference. Besides, users can choose to auto hide it after launching certain program, perform multiple applications launching during startup, minimize it to system tray when closing the menu and many more. That is not all, they can do quick applications launching by simply hitting on pre-configured hot key combination.
Appetizer is compatible with Windows Operating system and is designed to work with PortableApps USB format suitable for mobile computing in daily work.
