Thanks for over 410.000 Downloads and Updates :)

WinLaunch - Launchpad for Windows (Beta - still got some work to do)
Read this!
WinLaunch requires .Net 4.0:…

for a demonstration of all the features (adding apps, making folders, options, etc...)
watch this

This is Launchpad(Quickstarter) taken from Mac OS X Lion and implemented for Windows.

I know many people have done similar projects,
but i wasn't able to find one that replicated it good enough.

So i started working on my own version.
I put some real effort into making the look and feel as close to
the original as possible.

As stated above this is still a BETA version,
if you have found a bug please report it to me (

WinLaunch works at any resolution, but has been optimized to run at FullHD.

Next major release
- Improved folder rendering performance
- Fix for folder rendering glitches

Planned for future relases
- Context menus
- Custom icon layouts
- Installer

Does this work with windows 8?
mediterrano Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014

doesn't work properly here (Win7 x64 with 2 monitors with different resolution)

why I press F and drag & drop items into the window, the items are not shown although they do get added. When I press F3, I see the crosses for deleting the items but the items themselves don't get shown.

I don't use Aero and I have a plain black desktop background. (ie no background)

this thing is awesome, works very smoothly!
im experiencing some bugs, tho...for instance, i have to set a wallpaper manually, plus once the launchpad is activated, it hides everything from the desktop...i mean, icons, opened windows that normal, as it's a beta?

thanks for this great app! keep the updates coming ;)

 I really appreciate what have you done, but can you add the option to move freely the icons?

Hi MrC0rrupted, I really like this useful program but Im experiencing some minor problem with it in my Windows 8.1 system. The program started normally, when I pressed F button a smaller window showed up but I cannot drag any items onto it. Can you show me how to fix it? Many thanks!!!
