Pros

  • Lots of configuration options
Cons
  • Skins are too dark

This is launcher and a more powerful and customizable version of windows run. The program originated as I was sick of spending too much time searching for programs through my ever growing windows start-menu and also found myself using windows run more and more frequently. There was of course already programs like this available, but each had it's annoyance or missing features or too(!) geeky. So I decide to code my own app to rid me of using the windows start-menu and windows run.

Take a look at what this program has for you:

  • Keywords have properties like shortcuts, and you can for example drag-drop a shortcut/file/folder/favorite to add it as a keyword.
  • Auto-completion for keywords, file system and history (can also be configured).
  • Url detection, Enter URLs directly (like www.google.com, mail.google.com or http://www.google.com).
  • Keywords support parameters. Example "google latest executor" "wiki nirvana".
  • Besides keywords Executor can also optionally and dynamically add matching start-menu items, control panel items and other handy items to the drop-down/list.
  • Keyword "find [text]" for using Windows Instant Search (Vista) feature or Windows Desktop Search (WDS for XP etc.)
