"A great way to quickly launch apps, files and more with just a few keystrokes"

What do you like best?

It's very straightforward and it just works. It takes about 30 seconds to setup and then you can just start using it to launch apps, find files, do calculations and a lot more. It's cross platform and even offers a portable app option.

What do you dislike?

It can be a little unstable. The app will occasionally crash and need to be restarted. This is not super often, but it does happen.

I work on a computer all day long, and anything I can do to speed up my workflow I will do. Launchy is the perfect little app to take off precious seconds each time I need to do something that add up over the course of a day.
