    Hi, I have the same problem. Really no answer to that question? I dont wanna use the clumsy UI to fill my scan locations again.

  • Andrew Platt Andrew Platt posted a comment on discussion Help

    I have been checking back in on the older comments about excluding folders. Anyone have any suggestions, work arounds, or comments? Is there a plug in for this type of feature? I briefly uninstalled launchy and tried keypirinha this morning to try to get this ability.

    I'm also interested in this project. Mainly I'd like support for Windows' 10 multi-desktop features to be added. In my case, search and focus found running app windows if already running or start if not. Because it gets messy once you have many desktops and wonder where is a given app.

    Hi. Launchyt is a great piece of software, so far loving it. It usually finds what I am looking for, but since around 15 days ago I noticed that Launchy decreased its performance. Here you have a comparation of the same keyword research at Windows 10 Pro search and Launchy https://diigo.com/0biloo . The same keyword rendeers three matches in Launchy and much more matches in the Windows search. I have rebuild the Launchy catalog several times, but seems like it is not improving its accuracy search....

    I created a whole new skin using the default skin as the basis. Here's what I did: Modified all icons to scale 200% Changed all fonts to scale 200% Moved all text over to fit in the new template I call it Scaled Default. It is attached.

  • Katie Dickerson Katie Dickerson posted a comment on discussion Plugins 2.0+

    After wishing I had the plugin myself and not being able to track down anything that worked, I was able to cobble together a light substitute with IFTTT. Within the Launchy Runner plugin, I have a todoist action. It triggers a curl web request to my IFTTT maker page. I've set up IFTTT with a recipe when my todoist maker event is triggered, it adds the passed value to my inbox as a task. It's far from ideal - you'd have to make a new IFTTT recipe for each project you wanted to use, it doesn't work...

    I have the same exact problem with Launchy 2.5.0 in Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit. I somewhat fixed it by putting a "0 ms" delay in the "Auto open delay" option.

  • Povilas Povilas posted a comment on ticket #353

    I have the same problem, and mulitiple other people have problems. This is very annoying because you cannot use a lot of chortcuts. For example I have "new mail person name", but the parameters don't get passed. If I open the chortcut from command line or double click in file explorer it works fine. https://superuser.com/questions/879844/launchy-cant-use-a-shorcut-to-create-a-new-email-for-a-specific-person-using-o https://superuser.com/questions/963031/how-do-i-set-up-a-shortcut-to-start-conemu...

  • J. Preiss J. Preiss posted a comment on discussion Open Discussion

    It seems to be solved now. I was missing the platform dll of qt in the installer. Nevertheless - Keypirinha looks cool, too.

  • fshic fshic posted a comment on discussion Beta

    Hi J. Preiss-- I had made that request. Thanks for being responsive. I looked at Keypirinha and even with the Everything extension it didn't work as fluidly as Launchy does for me (Launchy orders finds by last access, e.g.). I keep coming back to Launchy, so I'm glad there is a (small) community that still remembers it. J. Preiss, shortly after emailing you I was able to get the originally posted installer to work by downloading qt (https://www.qt.io/download/), installing 5.7/msvc_2013_64, and running...

    Sorry that I do not have the time to read here regularely. It would be better to redirect these pages to one page on github, there I would get meails about them, I guess. Nevertheless, today I got an email from a sourceforge user, but I can't send an email back. He requested an installer with the plugin dir included. So I created a release on GitHub for my current version: Installer Right now, there is only a windows installer package inside. I'll try to add the Mac and maybe the Linux version, ...

  • sdel85 sdel85 posted a comment on discussion Skins

    I love this skin, but I'm having a bit of trouble with it on Windows 10. On my primary Windows 10 computer I'm getting white text for the applications like I would expect, but when I copy this skin to my secondary computer the application text is black. I don't think it's the skin causing this, maybe I missed or forgot about a change I made to Launchy on the primary machine back when I first installed it?

  • NB Stephens NB Stephens posted a comment on discussion Help

    Hey. Not sure if you ever found a solution for this, but the problem intrigued me so I looked into it. The windowsapp launchers aren't standalone, so they require some native references to launch any of the excutables, which means you have to link everything so Windows 10 knows what to do with the apps. It is sort of a hackey solution, but it works: Open up your windows file explorer and drop this CLSID ("https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3123-clsid-key-guid-shortcuts-list-windows-10-a.html" into...

  • Artem Russakovskii Artem Russakovskii posted a comment on discussion Help

    Not having Launchy work right on a HiDPI display has been a long-time concern, but I just tried it one more time after the Windows 10 Creators Update, and it looks like there's a perfect solution that makes Launchy scale correctly 100% of the time. My setup involves a 4K laptop display @ 200% scaling and an external 1080p @ 100% scaling. Here's what works and makes Launchy look perfectly crisp and correcty sizes no matter which monitor I'm on, even without logging out of Windows and back in. Go to...

    I've just started reusing this app and have come across a problem with defining a particular command in Runner. My first command worked fine. It sent a search argument to a site URL. The second command I tried to create does a similar thing, but it passes the argument to a local server. The command is http://127.0.0.1:32400/web/index.html#!/server/1bacf50bda5ac80880e22d3e10ee63c96099b3d6/search/$1 This is actually referencing a plex server, in case it matters.
