Access files, websites and applications easily with Microsoft Speed Launch

Speed Launch is a light weight and easily customizable tool that helps people be more productive. 

Speed Launch enables faster access to files, websites and applications that we use most. You can drag and drop any file, document or url to bull’s eye of Speed Launch and tag it with any name you want. Next time, when you want to use it, you can simply go to bull’s eye and type or click on the name and it will be opened for you.

There are actually many other tools that serve a similar purpose – Wikipedia has a great comparison of many of the “application launchers” that you can find here.  If you want to try an application with more functionality and a different interaction model check out ActiveWords ( or SlickRun (
