    launch bars

    What do you use as a launch bar?

    I use the Quick Launch bar built into windows and a freeware app called hidden menu.

    please post screenshots if possible

    I'd like to see screenshots of this "hidden menu" app.

    I use the normal QL bar, but I don't use it much. I mostly navigate by shortcuts. I've got my start menu set up so that with 4 jeys or less, I can open almost any commonly used application.

    It works a treat.

    hidden menu...

    basically this menu is COMPLETELY hidden, you don't even see it unless you want to.

    I have it set up to sit in the bottom right hand corner of my screen.



    I love that fact that you can change all the icons (I am using the Seer Icon Theme, I made the last 4-5 myself because the theme didn't have icons for my apps)

    You can change the color of just about everything

    and here's the kicker

    Everything can be assigned a shortcut key

    I use CTRL+WIN+ALT and some letter for everything on the menu

    A little tip for you guys...

    Add an address bar to your windows task bar, you can then type the file name of properly registered applications, or apps in the system path, in it to launch them...

    Such as:
    "winword" for word,
    "excel" for Excel,
    "notepad" for Notepad

    etc...

    Or Windows Key + R to open the run command, then put it it in. Also you can type in web addresses from the run command and it'll open your browser up.

    Another tip: Winkey
