Quick Tips: Launch Web sites fastUse the free Launchy program to get to a Web site quickly.
>> Hey I'm Tom Merritt from CNET dot com with a quick tip for faster access of your websites using LaunchE. Now you don't know LaunchE, it's a free keystroke launcher. Once you install it, you press alt spacebar and then type in any program you're looking for, it comes up and you're on your way. But you can also launch websites from LaunchE. Many websites like You Tube are already indexed so you just start typing the name. If a site isn't indexed, type the whole new URL and you can launch it. To make it more useful you can also launch a search. Let's use You Tube as an example. Type You Tube, once you select it press the tab button. Now put in a search term. LaunchE launches the search page at You Tube for that term. It's pretty cool. You can also create your own launch commands. Let's make one for G mail. Click the gear icon, select the plug ins tab. Make sure you're in the web E plug in, press the plus button. Type G mail as the name, it'll immediately alphabetize when you click the next box for URL. Chase it; now type the URL, press okay. Now when you type G mail it takes you right to the G mail log in screen. Pretty cool. That's it for this quick tip, I'm Tom Merritt for CNET dot com. [ music ]
