Launcher A free Application Launcher to make your desktop clean, with Tree Notes feature to keep and share your notes fast and easy, with countdown feature to countdown to a specific time in taskbar. Portable, skinable, customizable, innovation...

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.

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.

I put a lot of effort on created 8start Launcher, included skinable design and shortcuts grouping interface. After using this application I am so used to it that I can't manage to work on computers where it isn't installed.

With continuous improvement, 8start Launcher is including fast and beautiful Tree Notes feature, and also the countdown feature which always visible in taskbar.

I am publishing this software, hope that it can be a help for you to also. You are free to download and distribute the software. This software is a freeware!

8start Launcher is a program worth buying and pleasantly it is a freeware.
This program is a whole new way of launching programs and applications on your system. Starting programs from shortcuts on desktop and start menu is an obsolete and cumbersome process. Now it is made precise with categorization and graphic options. All your programs can be easily identified from the groups and the icons displayed. The art panel design and the graphical interface make your desktop much more viewable and useful than all your wallpapers and shortcuts put together. You can maintain a less icons desktop and access any program with a single click. Clear, useful groups replace the clutter of icons on your desktop. Even the menu is better than the standard start menu.
Even the status of removable drive capacity and free space is displayed for your convenience.

"I don’t usually spend any time on cosmetic utilities like screen savers, launchers, and other desktop accessories. But I gave 8start a chance to organize my icons into categories and subcategories (called groups) when it got increasingly harder to find anything in the forest that was my desktop." full review
