Download Executor - A advanced, customizable alternative for the Windows "Run" and "Search Programs" features
Executor is an advanced, customizable alternative for the Windows "Run" and "Search Programs" features. It pops up a small search dialog when you press WIN+Z and provides instant, as-you-type search results for any keyword you enter. By default, Executor will index all Desktop and Start Menu items and you can easily extend the scope of the search by adding additional folder locations.
You can even add your own keyword commands to launch applications, access Windows features, open documents, run web searches and more. The program comes with a list of built-in commands that you can use to quickly access many system functions by simply typing a short keyword.
Executor is customizable in many aspects, you can change the appearance by using different skins and tweak the search and indexing features to your preference.
