I am so very much all about SlickRun, but lately I've been branching out.
I've been using the "Ctrl-Ctrl" hotkey on Google Desktop more and more. There's a configuration option in Google Desktop that lets you indicate that you're more interested in launching programs than finding stuff. This turns Google Desktop into a fantastic program launcher, particularly for those not-used-so-often-have-to-search-for-programs that one tends to ding into the Start Menu looking for. Since I've incorporated GDS into my productively cycle as an augmentation to SlickRun I've not needed the start menu.
我越来越多地在Google桌面上使用“ Ctrl-Ctrl”热键。 Google桌面中有一个配置选项，可让您表明您对启动程序比对查找内容更感兴趣。 这将Google桌面变成了一个出色的程序启动器，特别是对于那些往往不愿意在“开始”菜单中寻找的程序进行搜索的人。 由于我已将GDS作为SlickRun的增强功能纳入了我的生产周期，因此不需要开始菜单。
A while back, after I got my Mac, I (mentally) declared QuickSilver to be the greatest program launcher ever. Anyone who gets QuickSilver done right on Windows, they will have a license to print money.
The documentation is weak, but if you do a little digging you'll figure out that sometimes you need to press TAB and sometimes you need to press SPACE or ENTER to get what you're looking for.
It's about 20% of the way to being QuickSilver, but it's a great start. I hope the author keeps development up and moves it forward.
