At your command.


SlickRun. Free floating command line utility. Set up some aliases, type ‘em in and get instant action. Kind of like a hotkey utility but without the hotkeys.

 SlickRun is designed to be far more intuitive than “hotkey” programs– You shouldn’t have to keep an awkward mental list of hotkeys for launching your favorite programs. Instead, just type whatever’s most natural for you to remember; with auto-completion, you’ll rarely type more than 2 or 3 characters anyway. Studies have shown that user-defined imperative words are much easier to recall than arbitrary characters like keystrokes.

  • Yes, very “slick’ utility. I have used this and it is intuitive. If you label each program with the first thing that comes to mind (i.e., password keeper = pass), all you have to do is start typing in the unobtrusive command line to run your application. It beats having every app you use in the quick launch tool bar taking up room!.

    Sure am enjoying your Blog! Keep up the great work and super freeware ‘finds’.


  • Heh, thanks Sam. :-)
