Software Product Description

Free Launch Bar is a Free replacement for the standard Quick Launch bar. All functions presented in Quick Launch are also in Free Launch Bar. However, the Free Launch Bar is fully compatible with Quick Launch because it uses the same folder for shortcuts. But there is one huge difference. Free Launch Bar allows you to combine your shortcuts into groups. This feature looks like popup menus. This vastly improves the management of your shortcuts and save working space on your desktop. By using Free Launch Bar, you speed up the launching of your applications like never before.

Why you need Free Launch Bar?
First of all you already have almost all features of Free Launch Bar on Quick Launch. You can create menus with Quick Launch, but you must hold down CTRL key to open menu and you cannot rearrange items inside menu. Free Launch Bar is the excellent replacement for Quick Launch, it uses the same technology. Free Launch Bar is the only FREE software that can be integrated into taskbar. If your Quick Launch have some tens of shortcuts, Free Launch Bar help you to organize them into nice menus. You do not need to open stupid dialog boxes to add, remove or rearrange shortcuts - all you need Drag&Drop or right-click shortcut.

"Waiting for ver. 2.1"

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You have to fool around with it for a while until you learn how to use it because the help button on the settings menu doesn't seem to work and there is no support on their website. It also cuts off the last few letters of some programs on the shortcut menu. But those things could be fixed in ver. 2.1. if there is one. All in all I like it; it's a nice freeware program. It saves a lot of space on the taskbar. It behaved nicely on my XP SP3. (Yeah that's right I still love my XP) It would be nice for a portable application.
