«Fast Launcher» (музейный экспонат)


Программа «Fast Launcher» предназначена для быстрого запуска других программ. Изначально программа появилась как альтернатива меню Пуск, которое меня никогда не устраивало.

Все нужные ярлыки программ, сайтов и файлов можно сгруппировать по вкладкам-категориям: интернет, офис, игры и т.д. Вызвать Fast Launcher можно нажатием горячей клавиши, окно с ярлыками при этом появится в центре экрана или рядом с курсором мышки.
