G Launch is a program launcher that allows you to launch documents, web sites, images and anything that you can think of. This program gives you the ability to categorize items that you use and group them under related sections so that you can quickly get to and launch them without traversing the Start menu or Windows Explorer. Using this program will allow you to customize what you access to the way that you think and not just what you have done in the past. This program doesn't allow you to do anything that you can't already do, it just makes it faster and easier and can help to clear up some of the clutter on your desktop by allowing you to have just one program on your desktop that allows you to get to everything that you need in the way you are most comfortable categorizing them.

Setup

Setting up G Launch is easy.
Setting up Categories:
  1. Click on the Configure Button, shown above, to begin.
  2. When the Configuration/Setup form is displayed, select the Add New Section from the top combo box.
  3. Type in the name of the new Category
    Each category will create a button on the initial form under which you can group items that you want to launch.
  4. Click the Add button to save this section in the program.
  5. Repeat the previous three steps until you have all of the sections you desire, or return after filling each section with programs/documents to add another Category/Section.

When finished your G Launch Form should look something like this.
