A NEW and Really Cool Desktop Launchpad

From the very first time I learned computers, I have always been fascinated with menu launchers AND have always loved customizing my PC to make launching my programs different than what was typical of the operating system. There are numerous launchers out there, and about the time I get a handle on one, I am off trying another. Today, is no exception…  I came across another launcher, called XLaunchPad, which is very new and quite different than many of the launchers I have used.

What you see below is what may appear to you as a typical layout of icons on your Windows Desktop, when in fact what you are seeing is XLaunchPad.


What I am liking about this baby, and keep in mind it is still in the infancy stage, is that you can toggle XLaunchPad on and off, change pages, and create a folder to hold other icons by placing one icon on top of another. I do have to admit, took me awhile to figure out how to do that… Another tip, if you give XLaunchPad a try, is this: When you have the XLaunchPad visible, simply right click your mouse to get to the options and settings. There is a little bit of a learning curve required, but once you get the hang of it, I think you will fall for it.

    1. Cappydawg,

      This is a very cool launcher. I just customized my PC with it so that I can give it a good test run. I will tell you this, you have to play around with it to get the hang of it. I do expect the developer to continue working on this. They are onto a good thing here…



    1. Hoochy,

      I edited the link you had posted. WinLaunch looked OK; however, to get to the download link I found quite suspicious (potential malware) and misleading. Otherwise, if the developer is serious about this, the download path for the enduser would be much easier.
