Little "launchy" style app launcher for Rainmeter.

Very simple and self-explanatory. Just add ShortcutWord=Program in [Variables]

Just demonstrating how this might be done using Lua. Feel free to pretty it up and add whatever functionality you need.

Sweet, I just installed and loaded this launcher. It is a very simple design, matches as close as needed to the illustro theme, as I currently have not found a launcher for it yet. I have put in around 26 shortcuts already, for some reason my system seems to launch the .exe's somewhat faster this way, as I am able to cut out using start to access shortcuts and no need to access quicklaunch from task bar anymore, this creates a simple keyboard type and hit enter key that launches what one needs. As I hide my desktop icons anyway, this makes accessing things quickly from the desktop.
