What's this then ?

Menu example

menuApp - now 64 bit windows and Windows 8 friendly!

menuApp is an application which allows you to configure menus and use them to launch your favourite programs, music files, documents, websites, etc.

It's fast, doesn't hog a lot of resource and is easy to setup and use
(it now has it's own configuration editor).

What's more, it doesn't drop any extraneous files on your system and it stays well clear of the registry.

  • menuApp takes folders and turns them into menus

    For example, you can point menuApp at your documents folder and it will draw a menu listing all your documents.

    Or you can point it to a folder full of mp3s and the mp3s will appear on the menu.

    Click on any item on the menu and it will be launched as if you clicked on it in Explorer.

    If there are sub-folders they will appear as sub-menus.

  • menuApp is flexible

    Using menuApp you can display a menu from a shortcut

    ...or via hotkeys

    ...or by double-clicking on the desktop

  • menuApp understands special Windows folders

    So you can tell menuApp to draw a menu containing the items from your QuickLaunch bar or from your Desktop.

  • menuApp knows about tasks

    Which means that menuApp can display a menu containing a list of the programs currently running on your computer. Select one and you switch to it.

  • menuApp has some other smart features

    For instance a background server to minimize menu load times and intelligent keyboard access.
