About MaxLauncher
MaxLauncher is a simple tabbed launcher that was designed to reduce the amount of time to find and run a program. It is capable of creating multiple data files, each of which can have a maximum of 10 tabs. Each tab and button is assigned a key(eg. F1-F10, 0-9, A-Z, etc.) based on the current keyboard. Simply press the hotkey(eg. CTRL+`) to activate the program then press the key that corresponds to the program you want to run. MaxLauncher is a redesign of MadAppLauncher. A few key features such as the ability to delete a tab, support for themes, and portable use were added.
  • Ability to launch an item (i.e.. program, folder, or command) in two or three keystrokes
  • Favorites bar with 10 configurable buttons each corresponding to F1-F10 keys
  • Create up to ten tabs. Each tab consists of 30 configurable buttons for a total of 300 configurable buttons for each file (*.mld). Each tab corresponds to the number 1-0 and the buttons on each tab correspond to the letters/symbols below the number keys
  • Data is contained in one text file (*.mld) in XML format
  • Multiple files (*.mld) can be created to further group items (e.g.. work, home, project1, etc.). Simply assign a *.mld file to a button to load.
  • Drag and drop support
  • Support for international keyboard layouts
  • Configurable hotkey to launch the program
  • Option to change a program's initial window size and location
