Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Though this small file locator isn't feature-rich, it performs its chief function well. KeyLaunch performs an extensive search of all directories by using shortcut keys and hot keys to quickly access files and folders from anywhere on your desktop. You can quickly access its simple interface by clicking the system tray icon or by hitting its hot key (its default hot key is the scroll lock). After that, every file or folder beginning with the letters you type are listed for immediate launching. You also can configure KeyLaunch to begin at Windows start-up, open particular applications or files with user-defined hot keys, and search through MP3s, though the program notes this feature can slow its performance down considerably. While this simple utility doesn't have many features, users will find it is quite handy since it carries out its primary function with accuracy and speed.

Developer's Description

With today's huge hard drives, which can store millions of files, accessing a particular document on your computer can be a tedious job. The Windows' START menu is meant to alleviate this, with features such as the Recent menu or the My Documents menu but we all know that's not enough. With KeyLaunch and just a couple of keystrokes you can access any document like you have never done before!
