PStart is a simple tray tool to start user defined applications. Designed to run portable applications (like portable Firefox & Thunderbird), you can start anything runnable from USB key devices or removable disks.
- Install PStart locally to your hard disk to have an additional start menu with a quick program search feature
- Install PStart to your USB stick to launch portable applications easily and open important documents or folders
Unlike Windows shortcuts, PStart uses relative paths, when installed as a portable application. If your USB key drive gets another drive letter when you insert it into another computer, your portable applications still can be started properly. This means you can also use PStart to start applications you burn to a CD (and don't know the drive letter either).
Of course not all applications are portable, but more and more software vendors notice, that people like the idea of carrying their applications with them. All future Pegtop applications will be portable (be patient). And there are portable versions of Firefox, Thunderbird, or even software development suites like Eclipse.
