Widget Launcher

By Zind Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Widget Launcher makes it easy to view a list of your system's available Yahoo widgets, and start any with a simple button click. This utility is a widget whose list-display interface is easily changed through themes and user-selected font and color settings. On installation, define the path of your widgets folder and this tool lists all those available. You can easily choose the number of widgets displayed, but you can only start a widget. This tool doesn't display widget information or allow you to edit another widgets' preferences. A refresh button and paging icons make it easy to navigate your widget list. No help file is required, as this tool is simple enough for the most novice widget user. Anyone who uses Yahoo Widgets will find this freeware's functionality a very helpful and necessary addition.

Developer's Description

Inspired by the "Widget Control Center" by Josh Gerdes, this Widget allows you to view the list of all available Widgets in the specified "My Widgets" directory. If a Widget name is clicked, the Widget will be open. This version offers the same features as Josh's, but with more options and a more Widget-like look.
