Launchy is a free utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, your desktop icons, and your file manager. Launchy indexes and launches your applications, documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes!

Thruster is an all in one plugin for Launchy, you don't need any other launchy plugins anymore, I say this because it is true: Thruster is written in Python and Python is simple and flexible, when ideas come to your mind but not available in Launchy, just extend by yourself or send me an request.


Thruster is available on Windows only.

# Run installer.bat
~> installer.bat

Note: You may need to quit Launchy before installation if a Launchy instance is currently running on your system.


Search Bookmarks

Index your browser bookmarks and launch them in Launchy.

After installation, restart Launchy and rebuild catalog, now you will be able to find and launch your bookmarks in Launchy.

Note: Google Chrome is currently the only browser that is supported, but it's quite easy to extend to other browsers.
