MAL ist ein Launcher für Programme, Scripte, Dateien usw. Dabei blendet MAL eine virtuelle Tastatur ein, wobei jede Taste mit einem Programm verknüpft wird. Dank Tabs können maximal 300 Anwendungen so gestartet werden - sollte den meisten reichen. Danach reicht der Hotkeyaufruf + verknüpfte Taste - schon startet das Gewünschte. Und wer will kann auch mit der Maus umher wedeln ...

hervorzuheben sind besonders seine nur geringen System-Ansprüche: läuft schon ab .NET 4.0 :)

Wenn man nicht gerade ein Uraltsystem sein eigen nennt, ist das ja kein Problem, wundert mich immer wieder, dass 2011 immer noch einige ein solches Problem mit .net haben.

Nun gut, inzwischen gibt es Version 1.0.8 - Änderungen bitte hier nachlesen: ... on-

macht jetzt unter dem Namen Maxlauncher weiter:
aktuelle Version 1.2.0
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.
