PanelLauncher is a free application launcher that helps to add applications in a panel and launch any application with a single-click. This software is also helpful to create custom hotkey for any application which is simply great. Without opening the panel, you will be able to launch applications by just using the assigned hotkeys.
It is a needed software to add frequently used files, applications, and folders in a single place for quick access. You can drag n drop applications on panel to add them quickly. Each application can also be modified whenever needed.
Screenshot above shows panel window where I have added multiple applications, folders, and files. I tested this software on Windows 7 (also runs on Windows 8) and it worked perfectly.
PanelLauncher is pinned with Windows taskbar which makes it more easy to use. Instead of pinning multiple programs and applications to taskbar, use this software that can store multiple applications in a single window.
