    Default 8start - free portable application launcher


    A skinable, portable, innovative Application Launcher and Tree Notes. A whole new way of launching programs and files, making your desktop clean and access/share notes/shortcuts/favorites fast and easy. You never this kind of freeware seen before.

    Starting programs from shortcuts on desktop and start menu is an obsolete and cumbersome process. Now it is made precise with categorization and graphic options. All your favorite programs, folders, url or documents can be easily identified from the groups and the icons displayed. The skinable design and the graphical interface make your desktop much more viewable and useful than all your wallpapers and shortcuts put together.

    You can maintain a clean desktop and access any favorite program/folders/documents/url with a single click. Clear, useful groups replace the clutter of icons on your desktop. Even the menu is better than the standard start menu.

    With Tree Notes/Shortcuts/Favorites feature, you can access and share notes/shortcuts/favorites fast and easy. Notes/shortcuts/favorites can be store in local computer, portable drive and file server. You can notes/shortcuts/favorites in different locations by few mouse clicks

    8start makes use of so called categories which can contain a number of groups each. Categories can be flipped like pages which means it is possible to create a smaller interface that is making use of pages to contain the same amount of information than a larger interface.

    The status of each partition of the computer system can be displayed in the interface as well. It can be used to quickly access a drive. Each item displayed, be it application, web resource, folder or partition can be loaded with a single left-click of the computer mouse.

    In creating menus, the program lets you define different categories and subcategories within which you can add as many items as are necessary and define the size and style of each. Once created, you can run any of the elements included in the menu with a single click. For example, you can run a program, display a document, play a song, explore a folder or visit a page.

    OS: Win 2000/XP/2003/Vista - May 8start be with you

    A keyboard shortcut can be configured to bring the 8start interface up when needed so that it does not have to be visible on the desktop all the time.
