Windows: If you hate icons on your desktop but you like having them neatly arranged and available, FLS Launcher provides a tabbed interface for icon organisation.
FLS Launcher can be launched by clicking on the system tray icon or moving the mouse to the upper-left corner of the screen. Once open, you are presented with a tab-based interface which you can customise with additional tabs and with icons for all your favourite applications. The tabs are navigable via the tab key or using the greater-than/less-than keys. You can drag, drop, cut and paste shortcuts between your computer and the launcher, within the launcher tabs, and back out of the launcher.
A donation version of the application exists but 90 per cent of the features are available in the free one — the donation version adds in keyboard shortcuts and the ability to customise the mouse-over corner that activates the launcher. FLS Launcher is freeware, Windows only. Have a favourite launcher? Let's hear about it in the comments.
