Run Manager is a program quick launcher which uses built-in Windows tools for creating keyboard shortcuts of required programs. It does not require any system resources for the programs to be launched. It doesn’t need to be running all the time. The GUI of Run Manager is used for configuration purpose. Rest of the work is done by built in Windows tools.
What does Run Manager do?
Run Manager does a very simple job. It creates shortcuts of the programs so that anyone doesn’t have to go to the start menu or deep in folders and find and run the programs from there. Run Manager provides a way to run the programs directly from the Run dialog box in Start Menu. For example, I use Firefox very frequently. I don’t want to go to the start menu every time to open Firefox. So I use Run Manager to create a shortcut for Firefox.
