Forget your start menu and the icons on your desktop - launch programs and documents from your keyboard, with just a few keystrokes, by typing abbreviations.
Just type a few letters of what you are looking for and Key Launch finds it - enter e.g. 'calc' to open the 'calculator'.
You can add aliases, e.g. you can define that "w" means "Microsoft Word", and from now on, you can simply hit Ctrl+Space, then "w" and enter to open MS Word, it's much faster than browsing through your start menu.
