MadAppLauncher is a simple application launcher for Windows



Quote
MadAppLauncher is a simple application launcher. Launch files in two to three keystrokes; just activate the application launcher, press one number key to select a tab(group) and another key(letter/symbol) to launch the corresponding application. Group applications, folders, scripts, etc. with ease. It supports drag and drop and manual editing. There is no need to remember all those hot keys. For a complete list of features, please see the Features page. Oh, did I mention it's FREE!!! It's under GPLv3 license.
