XLaunchpad is the Windows version of Launchpad, Mac OS X's application menu.

Much like iPadian and other desktop customization applications, XLaunchpad aims to make your PC's desktop more like a Mac interface, giving you the best of both worlds. With XLaunchpad, you get all the benefits of this type of menu system, but extended to any document, file and folder on your computer.

XLaunchpad allows you to add shortcuts and organize by folders. You can adjust the size of your desktop icons, activate them from the system tray or by pressing F12. You can even make XLaunchpad a permanent feature on your desktop so you don't have to activate it every time you want to access your PC programs.

To add new shortcuts to XLaunchpad simply drag and drop the file in question. The shortcut will be created automatically. By default, you will have access to Documents, Network, Recycle Bin and Control Panel folders. You can also organize apps into specific folders.

XLaunchpad gives you instant access to all your shortcuts in Mac OS X's visually appealing Launchpad interface.
