Notice of update, comments from readers

Jan 2007, permalink

 

Just before Christmas, Andy Goh, the author of 8Start Launcher wrote to tell us that he's updated his program. He says ...

With a lot of my hardwork spent, now 8start Launcher 1.4 is portable and with beautiful transparancy skin supported, and a lot of new features have been add in.

 

I've gotten lots of comments about this program. Here's what RonR said about it.

This does exactly what it offers, keeps the desktop clean and shortens the desktop toolbar. Figuring it out is not that difficult and just needs a little patience to achieve a desired result.

 

 

Quote from the website:

8start Launcher is a free portable application launcher, I created 8start Launcher because I believe there should be a convenient way to access application than using windows start menu, quick launch and desktop. Windows desktop look messy if too many shortcuts in the desktop, windows start menu become hard to access if too many applications installed in the computer, windows quick launch not suitable to handle too many shortcuts.

review from CC and Clif

My friend CC wrote in with a recommendation for this slick little program launcher. If he uses it, you can be sure it's safe to use. He's very choosy when it comes to freeware and I think he tries many more than I do. He just doesn't like to write about it very much.

 

After I asked him if he'd tried this one, he said: Yes I have-- I try most of the programs that I think have practicality and merit...

Now you can make your desktop wallpaper never be blocked by the icons, you never have to search program shortcuts in start menu. You can divide different programs into categories and groups, and access it by a single click.
