New Launchy 2.5 (beta) now available for download

Launchy is a very good application for Windows and Linux that lets you launch documents, files, folders, or bookmarks just with a few keystrokes.

Launchy is similar to Windows 7’s Search box function, so I think it is more suitable for Windows XP users. However Launchy offers more than that of Windows 7 or Vista search feature.

A new version of Launchy is now available (2.5 beta) and offers following new features:

  • Faster performance
  • Icons displayed correctly
  • Environment variables updated correctly when system changes
  • Controly includes more items
  • New controls: Shift+tab or Shift+bkspc deletes previous tab
  • Shift+Ctrl+Enter launches in elevated mode (Vista and Win7)
  • Down arrow shows history (when there is no current search text)
  • Default skin built into executable in case no other skin is found
  • Launchy now has an icon in the system tray

Interested users can download beta version of Launchy 2.5 from here. More information.
