MaxLauncher is an open source tabbed launcher. Its primary goal is to reduce the amount of time to run a program/file. It is capable of creating multiple configuration files, each of which can have a maximum of 10 tabs. Each tab and button are assigned keys corresponding to a standard keyboard. A user can click on the buttons/tabs or simply press the corresponding key to run the program or file.
MaxLauncher displays a forthright interface where you can create up to ten shortcuts, assigning a button to each. Editing a new shortcut is done by choosing the designated option in the right-click menu or by simply dragging and dropping a program or a folder to one of the available buttons.
Users can customize the name of the application and set additional execution arguments. Applications and folders can start minimized, maximized, hidden or in normal mode, with or without administrative privileges. One interesting feature is that you can configure the position of the opened window and its size. On the downside, MaxLauncher only offers predefined options, not giving you the freedom to customize the window location and its size exactly as you wish.
