Better way to find and start programs on computer"
A review by John

Windows presents the user with powerful tools for managing the operating system. Some of these include the start menu where all the programs and systems function of the program resides. The desktop that is more like the home pf the user that has shortcuts to programs used for storing documents for easy access.  File Explorer is another important utility for navigating the content of the system. This program presents the user with alternatives to using these windows utility. Rather than going through the long procedures of several mouse clicks, the program allows the user to perform several windows functions by pressing a couple of key combinations.

After installing the program, it stays in the background. You can trigger the application interface by pressing the ALT + Spacebar key combinations. After that, simply type in the first few characters of the program of the file you want to use and press the enter key after it appears. After using the program, you can hide the interface by pressing the ESC key or using the ALT + Spacebar combination again.  Although the features of this app are now available in modern Windows OS, it brings the power of usability to the previous OS such as Windows XP.
