Do you find the "Pin to your start menu" feature of Windows too limiting? Do you wish the start menu could be organized according to the tasks you work on, or the modes you work in? Do you frequently have so many windows open that you have trouble getting back to the right button after task switching?
SmartMenu solves these problems and more by taking the notion of a start menu to a whole new level by allowing you create a portal to your most used information on your PC, company network or the cloud in most cases.
SmartMenu is a Windows application that helps individuals standardize and optimize access to frequently used information assets. SmartMenu gives you fast access to actionable information that you cannot get to via Google. Search SQL Databases, LOB Web apps, and cloud based repositories directly from SmartMenu. Press Ctrl-Windows, type a couple characters and select the search engine you want to use. A search box appears that launches the search directly from SmartMenu.
Any search engine that includes your search criteria in the URL can be added to SmartMenu allowing you to launch the search directly from SmartMenu.
Do you frequently run a series of SQL database searches? Add a SQL search including multiple sub SQL searches for quick access to data.
