Whenever we switch on your computer, most of us usually open same applications on the daily basis. Or for doing a particular task, we are required to open certain number of fixed applications. So it usually wastes lots of our time in finding shortcuts and then clicking on desired ones to start the work.
To get rid of all, you can simply use a tool named LacunaLauncher. It is a nifty tool which will allow you to set group of applications to be open with a single click. All you need to do is to add all the paths of those applications in a notepad file and then you can open all of them with just one click. You can not only include applications, but even can include folders shortcuts, internet shortcuts, images, videos, music and literally everything that is present in your system.
These are the four files which you will find under RAR file whose link I have given at the end. It is very simple to use. To use it, simply open the notepad file named ”list”. There is already a shortcut added for notepad in this file.
Now here, you can add any number of applications, folders, files etc. All you need to do is just give their complete path in this file one by one. Press enter after every path and write them in consecutive rows. Once you done adding all applications, close and save this file.
Now whenever you want to launch entire added group, simply click on ll.exe file and then instantly all the added stuff will get opened with one click only. They will even appear in the same order as they are added in the list.
The other two files with name Readme are just the introductory files which contains the information about this tool in English and Spanish. There is also a command line parameter given in this tool which will give you more control over timing of the launches with an initial delay and a pause between each one, and even will give you the ability to create multiple lists and specify which you would like to use.
So in this way you can create number of groups and place them on desktop or pin to taskbar so that you can open those groups anytime when you require them. Like for example I requires Live Writer, Web Browser and SnagIt software to write a blog. So I have grouped them in one notepad file and placed the shortcut on desktop. In similar way you can group any number of files and add their shortcuts anywhere.
The size of LacunaLauncher is 234 Kb and you will need to extract the zip file to use this tool. This tool is compatible with all the versions of Windows and has been tested successfully on Windows 7 Ultimate-32 bit edition.
