Launchpad is a novelty of MacOS X Lion directly from iOS that allows you to see all its apps with one click, create folders to sort them etc. Well know that it is possible to have the same thing on Windows 7, 8 and Vista thanks to an application developed by C0rrupted, all for free.
WinLaunch is available for free for Windows 7, 8 and Vista (32/64 bits):
Operation of WinLaunch
Start by running WinLaunch Starter.exe by taking care to choose the suitable version for your PC (32 or 64 bits). Choose a theme and then press the key F.
Then drag drop from the application to the window WinLaunch (example: an icon on the desktop or an executable from an explorer folder).
To create a folder, this is the same principle as on iOS: drag an icon to another icon with which you want to create a folder and then give it a name.
To rename an icon, click on the + located in the lower left corner then on Edit. Then click on the icon you want to edit.
From this screen you can rename it, change the icon, the path...
Note that if you delete a shortcut from your desktop that was used via WinLaunch, it will no longer work.
WinLaunch comes with a large number of options accessible from the button Settings (after clicking on the + located in the lower left corner of the screen).
The most interesting ones are present under the tab Design where you can customise the whole Launchpad especially thanks to the many basic themes included.
Finally, to quickly access the Launchpad, do Maj+Tab.
A very successful application, beautiful, clean, customizable, consuming very few resources and free. In short, indispensable!
