Launch Items is an easy-to-use contextual menu plug-in which allows to launch customized applications or open documents with customized applications. It has a graphic user interface called Launch Items Editor where users can add any applications to the menu of Launch Items. The editor supports drag & drop, drag to change position of menu items, and more. The concept of contextual menu is to show a set of commands on a floating menu. Normally, this menu is invisible. It will be loaded or shown only when users HOLD down the Control key, and then click on the desktop (with or without item selection). Users who have two-button mouse can use right-click to show the contextual menu. Why you need Launch Items? For example, You have a picture made from Photoshop.
