    Quickly Access Your Quick Launch Apps in Vista

    Every like to work with Keyboard more than working with the mouse, bcz we can work fast and quickly access the windows or applications. So heres one more tip to access quick launch applications with the keyboard. This one specifically for Vista users: launch applications in your quick launch toolbar using the respective WINDOWS-# hot key.

    Suppose you have 4 apps at your quick launch thats A, B, C and D.

    You can quickly launch any of these applications by using the Windows key in combination with the number key that represents the position of the application. For example, if I wanted to launch C, I could press WINDOWS-3, because C is the 3rd application in my Quick Launch toolbar. If I wanted to launch A, I could press WINDOWS-1. WINDOWS-2 would launch B, and WINDOWS-4 would launch D.

    Isn't it nice tip to access quick launch faster ?

    You can add new entries to the Quick Launch toolbar by bringing up the context menu on any shortcut, and selecting the option titled, "Add to Quick Launch." Say, for example, I wanted to add a shortcut to a command prompt in my Quick Launch toolbar. I would use the Vista start search edit box to find cmd, bring up the context menu for the cmd entry in the search results list, and select Add to Quick Launch. Viola! The command prompt shortcut is now in my Quick Launch toolbar.

    Good sense... In this case you can use a software called "AutoHotKey."
