Editor: ActiveLaunch is a utility providing you with the opportunity to open a group of applications, documents, and folders with a single keystroke or mouse click. You can call up this launcher by clicking the middle mouse button on top of the screen or by pressing the HotKey. Alt + Backspace is the default hotkey combination, but you can change it. ActiveLaunch main window looks similar to a regular folder window in My Computer with icons reflected in it being analogues to Windows shortcuts. Any icon can be associated with any keyboard shortcuts. To launch a program you only need to press the Keyboard Shortcut associated with that program without any keyboard modifiers. Instead of pressing the keyboard shortcut you may click the corresponding icon as well. Keyboard shortcuts are listed next to each icon; therefore you don't need to memorize them. However, after several hours of work they will sit there automatically without any effort on your part whatsoever, and your hands will launch the desired program right at the moment you think of it. Different sections can be created as subfolders. You may use sections as regular folders to divide your icons into categories. Besides, sections may be used to run a group of programs, documents, and folders. To do this it is enough to Create a section and place there the icons you want. After this you call up ActiveLaunch, place the mouse cursor on the icon of desired section, and press the middle mouse button. In case a key is assigned to the icon, it will be enough to press this key, while holding CTRL key. While holding Ctrl you can also select desired icons and launch corresponding objects at once. You can also use the middle mouse button to select desired icons. After launching an application the ActiveLaunch window is automatically closed. You can also assign hotkeys to items in main section. These hotkeys allow you to launch an application or group of programs directly without main ActiveLaunch window in view.
