Editors' Review

We're big fans of portable freeware. These tiny tools perform a huge range of tasks, and often they're the only option to do the job. But many times you'll find lots of tools available for the asking; keeping track of them all gets to be a problem. That's where LiberKey can help. This free application serves as a central access point for a whole bunch of free tools. It downloads them for you, arranges and groups them so you can find what you need when you need it, and launches them. It tracks your favorites and recently used apps, and it's searchable.

LiberKey's user interface has the look of a media player or similar app, and it opens on the desktop near the notification area. The program's wizard offered to download groups of freeware in Basic, Standard, and Ultimate suites. The Basic suite offers 13 apps, including such old favorites as 7-Zip, CCleaner, and KeePass; the total amounted to just under 55MB, though we reduced the download by deselecting those apps we already had or didn't want. Pausing the cursor over any app opened a brief but helpful explanation of what the tool does. A single click downloaded, installed, and listed each app in LiberKey's categories, including Audio, File Management, Office, and System Utilities. We simply had to click an app's entry in LiberKey's menu to launch it. LiberKey offers a variety of compact pop-ups and dialogs to manage its features and options, plus useful right-click menus for accessing it all. Clicking the LiberKey Tools button produced a main menu letting us set the program's configuration options, add and manage apps, add and remove portable shortcuts, enable file associations, and other useful selections. The interface even displayed our C drive's disk space. A prominent Help button opened Web-based support options.

LiberKey proved a pretty neat way to handle portable applications. And there are hundreds available; LiberKey's Ultimate suite lists 145 itself, and the Standard suite has 83 programs available. We saw many standouts, too, such as Audacity, fre:ac, HWiNFO32, and CrystalDiskInfo, and that's barely scratching the surface.

"Excellent piece of software"

June 09, 2012  |  By MicroTest

 |  Version: LiberKey 5.7.0530

Pros

Run applications as administrator
Adjustable in every which way possible
Can be used to replace Windows programs menu
Fulfilled all my expectations
I am just testing it - so far no trouble and I am loving it

Cons

Liberkey will be my replacement for PStart which already has a lot of entries.Unfortunately PStarts xml-config file can't be imported

Summary

I have a lot of programs on my hard drive installed and I wanted to have an application to organize/categorize them.Windows built-in program menu is something to forget about.DellDock,NexusDock and other similar product are not my taste and none of them was actually able to meet my needs.portableapps.com has nice interface but it is not able to import programs that are installed inside windows.Tried another one - similar problem.Then I used PStart which worked pretty well but it was cumbersome to run applications as administrator in Win7.Even though PStart was more or less outdated it was the best solution until I discovered Liberkey.It is similar to portableapps.com but much more powerful.I can easily drag and drop programs onto its interface and if necessary change the properties of a shortcut to make it ALWAYS run as admin.There are settings to have it autorun at windows startup ,hide the menu and many,many more.
Again- Like this software and it is a must for me.
