Download XLaunchpad: A Beautiful Alternative to Windows Start Menu

If you find Windows start menu confusing and not your type of thing then try using XLaunchpad, this will help you for sure. XLaunchpad is a iOS or Mac Luncher like app launcher for Windows computers.

I own both Windows and Mac computers, and sometimes i fell like the windows start menu is quite confusing and not that appealing at all. At the same time, i love to use the Launcher app of my Mac. As you can see the image below, it’s quite lovely.

Mac OS Launchpad

Anyhow, so a few days back i found this cool little app for Windows computers called XLaunchpad. The app is created by XWidget Studio, and they own another app called X Widget, both of these can bring the OS X experience to the Windows OS.

This app is very similar to the Launchpad app for Mac. Also, you can do some useful changes and customizations to the app. for instance, you can create a folder and store all the similar app icons in the same folder. You can download XLaunchpad for your windows 7/8/8.1/10/XP (+Laptops) and install it on your computer.

After installing you can easily drag and drop the program shortcut icons in this app, you can set the options like how this launcher should appear and when it should appear. You can set a specific hotkey to launch the launcher or even the cool feature which i love – You can drag your mouse cursor to a specific corner of the screen, and the launcher will appear.
