Free Launch Bar

By Tordex Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
At first glance, this free utility seems exactly like the Windows Quick Launch bar. One major difference makes it far handier, though. With Free Launch Bar, you can add not only shortcuts, but entire pop-up menus of shortcuts. It's kind of like having as many Start menus as you can build. Interface options allow you to change icon size, fonts, and other minor display options. You even can password-protect your new menus to lock out changes. People who find the default Quick Launch bar too small for all their shortcuts will appreciate Free Launch Bar.

Developer's Description

Free Launch Bar is a replacement for the standard Quick Launch bar. All functions presented in Quick Launch also are in Free Launch Bar. However, the Free Launch Bar is fully compatible with Quick Launch because it uses the same folder for shortcuts. However, there is one huge difference. Free Launch Bar allows you to combine your shortcuts into groups. This feature looks similar to pop-up menus. This improves the management of your shortcuts and saves working space on your desktop. By using Free Launch Bar, you speed up the launching of your applications like never before. Version 2.0 adds Windows Vista support and 64-bit support.
