We like the idea of the Windows Quick Launch bar, and even -- on rare occasions -- find ourselves using it. But we're always struck with the vague, disconsolate feeling that it simply isn't reaching its full potential.

True Launch Bar is a vastly-superior replacement for the standard Quick Launch bar. Don't worry -- every Quick Launch function is also in True Launch Bar, and they share the same shortcut folder. However, True Launch Bar allows us to combine our shortcuts into groups and display them in convenient popup menus. Right off the bat it saves us space on our desktop and makes it a snap to launch our favorite applications.

True Launch Bar is extremely configurable. We love the "auto-popup menus on mouse hover" option, and the "large icon" option makes working at high screen resolutions much more comfortable. Creating a new menu is as simple as right-clicking on True Launch Bar, and you can designate hotkeys to launch applications.

Best of all, True Launch Bar supports plugins like Mail Monitor, Weather Forecast, Media Control, System Process Monitor, Color Picker, Voice Recorder, Calculator, and dozens more!

But don't take our word for it. Give True Launch Bar a try today and watch how quickly you ask yourself how you ever lived without it.

Craig Haywood I have been using TLB since windows 95 and it is still one of the first things I install after a fresh windows install

Hans-Peter Guttmann Only 'xplorer2' is as essential to making Windows truly efficient. The versatility and depth of 'True Launch Bar' is stunning. All of Windows settings & controls and all of your Apps and critical folders / templates can be made available off the Desktop but one or two clicks away, organized in a way make that makes sense to you! TLB on a vertically arrayed, hidden Taskbar is extraordinary — on 7, 8, or 8.1 Update.

And, at $10 — if you like 'messing' with Windows — it's an ultimate treat.

Jan-Christoph Ihrens Great! I'm just setting up a new computer for a friend, and as a long-term user of TLB I had this on my list. Now I can save him ten bucks. :)

Retired Engineer Your description of TLB refers to a "... side panel (which) can be snapped to any edge of the screen on any monitor. We have created a special standalone version of True Launch Bar that can work independently from Windows Explorer. You can use True Launch Bar as a side bar. In Standalone True Launch Bar, you'll discover an extended auto-hide feature control. Moreover, for Windows 7 the standalone version is the only way to create an external bar beyond the taskbar."

I think this is *great*. However, I can't find how to set it up. Can someone please point me to the menu "click path" which will implement it?

Yuri Kobets You can find the shortcut here:
Start-All Programs-True Launch Bar-Standalone True Launch Bar

Run it, select the toolbar folder and set some options.
