Launchy is a handy dandy application launcher. To start Firefox, instead of clicking on an icon, I open Launchy with ALT-SPACE, and then type ‘fire’, and the ENTER. This starts Launchy.
It can start anything on your computer.
I am cleaning up my desktop today, and wondering what really needs to be there, vs. what can be archived. And it hits me: NOTHING really needs to be there, as I access almost everything by Launchy, not by clicking on the icon.
When you use [ ALT-SPACE ‘ac’ ENTER ] to launch your action list, it doesn’t matter that you can see it on your desktop. Same with Thunderbird, Firefox, Trillian…
So why have anything on your desktop at all?
I have Recycle Bin, which I haven’t figured out how to remove yet, my Calendar folder, Client folder, and Odds and Ends. That’s it.
And this picture to help me stay focused.
Goodbye cluttered desktop!
