Using your computer as the main tool for your activities sooner or later gets the desktop filled with an abundance of shortcuts. This makes finding desired items not only difficult, but also time-consuming. Luckily, specialized applications like File/Folder Launcher give you the possibility to cleverly organize and launch any item with the press of a few buttons.
Running the application brings up the main window, equipped with all available features. You are able to create lists populated with files and directories of your choice, each being set to launch using various settings.
Furthermore, integrated hotkey support lets you have any file or folder at the tip of your fingers. However, you can only choose from a list of preset combinations of Ctrl, Shift, Alt along with F keys.
Additionally, the application can be toggled as a desktop side panel equipped with buttons to which you attribute an item. Unfortunately, you need to remember settings, because buttons can be pressed whether or not a file or folder are linked and there is nothing to display this info.
Depending on the activity requirements, you are able to create multiple lists to suit your needs. These are saved to a directory of your choice in order to easily load them when needed.
However, this only applies to the advanced launching method. From here, you can set priority, compatibility mode with other operating system versions, as well as choosing to run as an administrator.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that File/Folder Launcher is an advanced organizer, with various helpful tools. It tends to feel a little rough around the edges at first, but the amount of methods and options assure you that not only more desktop space becomes available, but launching important applications is done faster.
