True Launch Bar 5.2

True Launch Bar is a superior replacement for the standard Windows Quick Launch bar and all functions plus more are presented in True Launch Bar. The difference resides in that True Launch Bar allows the user to combine its shortcuts into groups and in form of popup menus.

Make it portable, so I can easily use my favorite shortcuts and apps from a variety of PCs.

Make it integrate better with the Windows 7 taskbar. Right now the icons are a different shape and it's very obvious that I'm using a toolbar.

It should be a seamless transition between standard 'docked' shortcuts in Windows 7 and the custom apps and shortcuts in TLB. It's pretty mismatched right now, even using the Windows 7 skin.

Try to use the the Dark Glass skin. It is much closer to the Win7.

Add a shortcut that allows to show/hide the taskbar.

Response from the site administrator
Tordex, 11.02.2011
Not sure this is possible. But currently you can set the taskbar into the auto-hide mode and set the hotkey to activate the TLB toolbar (with the taskbar)

Add a cloud-based synchronization system, so your apps would be the same across multiple PCs.

Include the ability to have the taskbar on multiple monitors

Much like UltraMon, it would be nice if it supported the taskbar on multiple monitors
Response from the site administrator
Tordex, 11.02.2011
You can use the Standalone True Launch Bar on the second monitor. Also the UltraMon supports the True Launch Bar.

Include a few plugin packages to preinstall to give users an idea of what the program can do. It seemingly does nothing at first until you start to install plugins and tinker around with and realize how much is there. That, or at least a few quick

other than the previously mentioned spanning of multiple monitors I don't think this one can be improved. Please do not try to make it do everything, it works brilliantly. Well, I guess you could make it free - oh, that's right, there is a free versi

A concise Readme/Getting Started file that addresses how to obtain add ins and examples of customization possibilities

Need to improve learning curve for tis product to be a hit. It appears to have great possibilities but, as offered, requires too much effort for the average user to learn and appreciate the capabilities and usefullness of your product

Thank you very much for you suggestion. I plan to make the tutorial videos to show how to work with the True Launch Bar.

Allow multiple instances so that you could have a seperate True launch menu for unrelated categories and provide icon for identity purposes

This would be useful so that you could have multiple true launch menus on the task bar for example one for graphics apps, one social networking etc. Each of these could have sub menus if required. It saves all items /menus being put on one True...

Tordex, 11.02.2011
You can create as many menus as you want. Also you can open more then one TLB toolbars. In addition you can run the Standalone TLB to make the external toolbar.

Add Spanish as a supported language. That would make the application useful to several million more people!

You have lots of languages supported that don't have the potential number of users that Spanish would have. I mean, c'mon, most of Central and South America is disenfranchised here.

See a scan engine added to scan for User program/TLB plugin matches. That would help the novice user by only suggesting plugins for the programs they have like media player. As it is right now some users would start to balk when the plugins get updat

Use it as a standalone dock app (like Rocket Dock) not a toolbar.

Decline the size. >15 MB installer is too big.

The amount will be getting bigger after one adds plugins. Competitor software like Sidewinder has significant smaller setup size.

Twitter support could be nice in the form of widget. It would be possible to check tweets quickly or to post own ones too.

Add an option to save Tru Bar Launch Settings/Parameters/ShortCut Appliaction... so that can be exported/emailed to another user and with one click the receiver can manage a similar desktop like the sender.

A user manual with examples of what is possible with your application.

It looks like a neat and useful application, but the user interface is too confusing, and busy. Maybe a wizard to help setup some useful toolbars. Also the ability to make a toolbar icon, so my taskbar does not get filled up with toolbars....

Unless you were an advanced user, this program would, at first viewing, appear far too complex for a novice to even contemplate using. IMHO, you need to have your programmers write up a short but concise tutorial for your novice users. You could...

Add a notepad plugin with several pages and some rich text functions (bold, color).

It would be very useful to store a few pieces of text available after 2 clicks.
