It is the most full of features and customizble launcher. Read the instructions, don't be lazy. See More

Plugins are much more extensive than other launchers and are under active development by the user community. See More

You can do anything, from launching applications, to adding, grouping and removing them without using the keyboard. There are also keyboard shortcuts available for those that do not like using the mouse, either way the app will work with whatever workflow works best for the user. See More
After installed the first time you pull the launcher up there will be no apps contained within, this means every user will have to manually add the apps they would like in the launcher, which is time consuming. An auto population feature would be more convenient, sadly there is none. See More
It enables you to launch any application with very few clicks. If you organize your apps well, you get them in one single click. You may need two or three at most if you need to open a folder or move to another page. I think HotCorners is a great idea, allowing you to view WinLaunch without even clicking. Even setting up your apps in it is fast and intuitive, with simple clicks and drag-n-drops. See More
Love it. The best app launcher for Windows. Also portable! It also beats the Linux launchers I have tried. See More
It requires you at least install notepad++ or similar, learn what it means if '#" is displayed on a line in the config file. Other then that, the dev. explains everything about the setup you could possibly want to know on his site. See More
If you are not that patient of a person and want something to just work off the bat this won't be for you
Launchy can be easily themed by placing themes into the Launchy theme folder and then selecting that theme from within the apps settings. There are also many user created themes available which is great for those that want their launcher to match the rest of their OS's theme. See More
Fast, More than just a launcher. It also enriches your file management experience See More
GChristensen recently upgraded Enso to Python 3.7, a great improvement over the original v2.5. You can write custom Enso commands in Python through its new web interface (or your favorite editor once you know where to put the files.) There's even an install command to pip install any Python package you need from PyPI. The sky's the limit. See More
According to Raskin's philosophy which inspired Enso, a pop up "dialog" is a bad design. The OK button is a useless input that interrupts your flow. Enso's pop up messages, therefore, are transparent and quickly fade away on their own (like Android Toast messages). Unfortunately, this also means you can easily miss them if you're not paying attention. Raskin's solution was to keep a message log you can refer back to, but Humanized never got around to implementing that for Enso. See More
One of the most full featured and well designed cross platform application launchers. There are many good launchers on Windows, Linux, and Mac but there are few that are cross platform, AND actively being developed. Hain is from the start very full featured, has a great integration with NPM for installing plugins, and uses themes which are fully compatible with Albert. I highly highly recommend it. See More
