How to use LaunchBar Commander:

You need to install this lightweight LaunchBar Commander before reaping its benefits. Once LaunchBar Commander is installed it launches a bar on the top of the screen by default. The bar can even be docked sideways if desired.

But if you don’t want the launch bar eating away your desktop space then the bar can be toggled to tray mode; basically, it will get minimized on the system tray. Now just drag and drop your favorite folders and applications on the bar.
