I normally have like 15-20 open applications, including many visual studios, documents, etc.
It would be great using launchy to switch tasks, by starting to write the title of the task, and instead of searching the task in the taskbar or pressing many alt-tabs, with few keystrokes we're there!
Tasky or TasKey :-)
For Launchy 1.x you should search for a plugin called Go-Y.
For Launchy 2.1 I created a remake of this plugin in Python:
You need to install PyLaunchy in order to have it.
I would also recommend using TaskSwitchXP which is a turbo version of the classic Alt+Tab manager.
thanks for your reply.
1. For PyGo-Y do I have to install python?
2. TaskSwitchXP doesn't support 'search' by writing the task's name, right? and, is it fast?
1. Please read the "Installing" and the FAQ pages in http://pylaunchy.sourceforge.net . They should cover most questions.
2. TaskSwitchXP doesn't support search, it's just better Alt+Tab manager. I haven't seen any performance issues with it.
Ok, thanks, I read it before but I wasn't sure.
I was hoping to find a solution without any supplemental installations.
Hey guys, any solution for this without python?
I have just created a plugin inspired by Go-Y, which I call tasky, but instead of having to type Go TAB, window titles will just show up along with shortcuts etc. in the search result. Check it out at https://sourceforge.net/projects/tasky-launchy/
Hey, I just tested it - work pretty cool! thanks!!
