An advanced and customizable freeware windows run replacement

Executor is a multi purpose launcher and a more advanced and customizable version of windows run. There was of course already programs like this available, but each had it’s annoyance or missing features or too(!) geeky

Some of the main features:

  • Keywords have properties like shortcuts, and you can for example drag-drop a shortcut/file/folder/favorite to add it as a keyword.
  • Auto-completion for keywords, file system and history (can also be configured).
  • Url detection, Enter URLs directly (like www.google.com, mail.google.com, google.com or http://www.google.com).
  • Keywords support parameters. Example “google latest executor” “wiki nirvana”.
  • Besides keywords Executor can also optionally and dynamically add matching start-menu items, control panel items and other handy items to the drop-down/list.
  • Ability to add your own paths to scan for user defined file extensions.
  • Keyword “find [text]” for using Windows Instant Search (Vista) feature or Windows Desktop Search (WDS for XP etc.).
  • Can add keyword integration with popular services like GMail, Twitter, GCal, RTM and many others (see forums for howto’s, tutorials and tips).
