Description by the Software Developer: "TurboLaunch is a fully configurable tool-bar style application that can be set up to run many programs and perform certain pre-programmed actions. Like a toolbar, pictures are used to distinguish what a button is configured to do. TurboLaunch automatically uses the default icon, but you have complete control and can change the icon to whatever you want!
The buttons on TurboLaunch are easy to configure! By dragging and dropping programs, files, shortcuts, or folders, you can instantly configure that button to run the dropped object. You can also configure buttons manually by specifying their command, parameters, working folder, and window style. You even have the ability to assign a shortcut key to any button, allowing you to quickly run that button with a simple keyboard command."
