Game Launcher is a simple application that lives in your notification area/system tray. It maintains a list of games you choose to have on it, and allows you to launch those games from anywhere by right-clicking the icon, or pressing Windows+G on your keyboard.

GL supports various methods of adding games, including: browsing for the shortcut, drag'n'drop, shell integration, and direct input of a Steam App ID. Support and bug requests for GL is handled by the GitHub project's issue tracker, so if you have any bugs, feature requests or other suggestions, please post them there!

    Very well designed and works quite well, although I prefer a more complete game launcher program such as photon game manager or steam. Keep up the good work
