Back when I was running XP I was a big fan of launchers, personally I really liked Colibri and Launchy. Could never decide winch one I liked best. When I upgraded to Vista a while back the built in launcher in the start menu does the trick for me. But good just got better with a nifty little addition released by Brandon Paddock called Start++.
What it does is to give you the ability to define custom commands to use in the start menu. For example ”w Vista” does a search for Vista on Wikipedia.
It’s easy to configure own commands and startlets.
So, you want to get more efficient in Vista, go download Start++.
Start++ now got it’s own home page.
