SE- TrayMenu is a free application launcher for Windows that lets you add and access frequently used applications, files, and folders directly from the system tray of your PC. You can add executable files such as *.exe, *.com, *.bat etc., internet links, as well as applications from Start Menu and can launch them with a single click or with assigned hotkeys. Main benefit of this application launcher is that you don’t need to search for the desired files or programs and go through multiple steps to launch them.
