yLaunch is a simple little program which runs in the system tray and gives you quick access to commonly used programs. Okay, the Start menu does that so why use this program? Because yLaunch can run several commands when you pick a task.
Apart from programs you can also add Explorer folders, web URLs and any documents recognised by your windows installation. When you launch that task, all will be opened simultaneously.
Setting up yLaunch is a bit tricky since you have to edit the launch files by hand, but once done it’s really worthwhile.
