"Best free-ware launcher I have found."

June 06, 2006  |  By Inspector108

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

This launcher is very easy to configure. You can add programs simply by drag-and-drop; even if you drag a shortcut, it's smart enough to link to the actual .exe file. This makes it much more convenient than launchers that require you to navigate to the actual program file, and I was surprised to find how many other launcher creators haven't figured out that is a real pain in the butt! Also, using your own choice of Magicwords to launch programs, Web pages, etc. makes it very easy to use. Equally important, it's very unobtrusive and stable, and so far has never conflicted with anything on my computer.

"By far the best app I have EVER downloaded!"

May 25, 2006  |  By insomnianiac

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

Forget hotkeys & super-multi-function keyboards! When it comes to ease of use, speed & versatility, SlickRun leaves them all standing! This neat little application just sits quietly in your toolbar doing nothing much, hardly even touching your processor but when you use it - it is magic! You can configure it to open any application, any webpage - almost anything except maybe your beer, though you never know your luck!

"Great idea"

May 23, 2006  |  By Meteu

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

I love the idea of this. It makes it so much easier for me than hunting through menus all the time.

Cons

The interface and syntax can be hard to figure out, most experienced users will be fine, though.

"Simple, Useful, Unobtrusive"

May 18, 2006  |  By animelover120

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

You can set the opacity and change the colors so that it doesn't stand out or make it invisible completely! Plus, autocomplete makes it even better. It opens webpages, lauches programs, locks computer, etc.

Cons

Absolutely none.

"if you hate touch pads on laptops, try this!"

April 14, 2006  |  By p_womble5

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

it's easy to use and highly customizable. i'd definitely recommend it to anyone with a laptop that grows tired of using the little touch pad all the time. it's super quick and setup is a cinch!

Cons

i've never used the 'jot' function that it has.

"A utility that is actually useful and becomes virtually indispensible."

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

Simple. Adaptable. Does what it does well. Doesn't try to do too much.

"Simply Amazing. Every OS needs an app like this!"

March 21, 2006  |  By danlemire

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

If you've ever spent several minutes looking for a program on the start menu, this is your solution. Add a magic word you'll remember and that's all you need to launch a program. Simply Awesome!

Cons

Ok to be honest there's only one thing. It doesn't integrate with the start bar, but the developer is working on a new version that would fix this minor annoyance.

"Awesome!"

February 17, 2006  |  By Nighted

 |  Version: SlickRun 3.0.0.1

Pros

Fast, unobtrusive, unlimited, useful, & cool!

If you're the type who finds using a keyboard a much faster way for using your system, this is a must have program as you can set up shortcuts with magic words, enter and url and have it launch in your brower, or use regular run commands. Sweet!

Cons

Wish you could launch a search with it through your favourite search engine. You can do this with a program called Run! by entering G! and then your search text, such as "G! cool programs"...then your browser opens a google search with those search words.

But hey, I don't really care...it would just be even cooler! :D
