    Though I do feel Handicap without Launchy since the very time I made a transition to Windows 8 Desktop PC. As we all know, it goes "deprived" of the Start Menu, & thus, requirement of an efficient Launcher becomes even must! However, it is disappointing to observe that No new version has been released yet since the Year 2010! Launchy desperately requires a quick overhaul to fine tune its functioning & efficiency in order to customize as per Win 8 OS requirements! There goes tons of listed items within Control Panel of Win 8, & Launchy is able to provide an access to a only a few at one go! Therefore, some Customizations need to be introduced in order to enable a complete index of the Control Panel items.For instance, I should be able to quickly launch "Windows Update" at one go without the requirement of making maneuvers to access the same. Similarly, the Task Manager of Win8 depicts Launchy's Start-up Impact to be "Very High" in comparison to the rest of the companions sitting innocuously in the System tray. This needs to worked upon as well in order to Optimize on the available resources! I would request the Author of this Application to quickly come up with more innovations to keep the pace with the changed OS dispensation.
