A free Application Launcher to make your desktop clean, with Tree Notes feature to keep and share your notes fast and easy. Portable, skinable, customizable, innovation...

8start Launcher is a free portable application launcher, I created 8start Launcher because I believe there should be a convenient way to access application than using windows start menu, quick launch and desktop. Windows desktop look messy if too many shortcuts in the desktop, windows start menu become hard to access if too many applications installed in the computer, windows quick launch not suitable to handle too many shortcuts.
Now you can make your desktop wallpaper never be blocked by the icons, you never have to search program shortcuts in start menu. You can divide different programs into categories and groups, and access it by a single click.
I put a lot of effort on created 8start Launcher, included skinable design and shortcuts grouping interface. After using this application I am so used to it that I can't manage to work on computers where it isn't installed.
With continuous improvement, 8start Launcher is including fast and beautiful Tree Notes feature.
I am publishing this software, hope that it can be a help for you to also. You are free to download and distribute the software. This software is freeware!
