Editors' Review

There are plenty of people out there who believe that the Start button is an inefficient way to access programs and files on your computer, and as a result, plenty of alternatives have cropped up. Sumka Quick Launcher seeks to give users another way to quickly locate and launch their most frequently used items. Although the program works, its dated interface made it a bit of an eyesore on our desktop.

When minimized, Sumka appears as both a system-tray icon and a tiny strip of a toolbar on the desktop. Hovering your mouse over the toolbar reveals a drop-down menu containing Common Files, Start Menu items, and a ReadMe file. The interface text is small and crowded, and the marbleized skin reminded us of the wallpaper that we used on our Angelfire site circa 2000. The program is skinnable, thank heavens, and users can customize the font, but the interface still felt clunky and old. Fortunately, Sumka Quick Launcher does actually work; we were able to customize the program's drop-down menu to include our most frequently accessed folders and programs, and they did indeed launch reliably from the little toolbar. There's no Help file, which is regrettable, as the program does have some features we never figured out; there was a menu that let us configure hot keys, but what are they for? Overall, we think there are probably better launchers out there - in fact, we know there are - but if you are nostalgic for the turn of the century, we suppose Suma Quick Launcher is a decent choice.

Sumka Quick Launcher installs politely but leaves a Start menu icon behind upon removal.
