Windows Users: Use Launchy

Optimizing Developer Workflow is very paramount. The faster and easier it is for you to navigate your system and IDE, the more productive you become in shipping apps.

MacBook Users can just press Command + Spacebar and the Search Bar pops up. You can easily search for any app or files on the system via that textbox. A Windows OS doesn’t provide that functionality for you by default.

Thank Goodness, there is a tool for Windows that mimics such behavior.

The name of the tool is Launchy. Download it here

It maps your Alt + Spacebar  keys to the functionality that pops out a textbox for Users to search for apps/files system wide.

Once installed, Press Alt + Spacebar  whenever you need to search for any app to use.

It’s Fast and Awesome!
