Great update! I especially like the autorun feature. Now, I just have to remember to STOP automatically typing Win+Z,A to launch my AutoHotKey scripts 🙂

What is the Wins system? Menus?



    Pavel · September 16, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    Thanks, Mitch!
    Wins is a set of features which let you hide active window or change it’s properties, it has a default hotkey WIN+C

      Mitchell Allen · September 16, 2015 at 10:25 pm

      Hi Pavel,

      Well, I’ll be… another potentially useful feature. I’m fooling around with Dexpot, which is a virtual desktop manager. I’ll have to see if there is any benefit to just hiding windows…

      Thanks! (Any links for learning more?



        Pavel · September 17, 2015 at 8:19 am

        Surely it can’t replace desktop manager, but should be easy enough to use 🙂

          Mitchell Allen · September 17, 2015 at 9:56 am

          It might be handy, but the default Ctrl+Space to hide windows made my Excel VBA window disappear! LOL

          I changed the hotkey.



Pavel · September 17, 2015 at 2:41 pm

Well, Ctrl+Space actually hides active window 🙂 You can restore it by opening Wins menu (WIN+c default) and selecting corresponded item there

    Mitchell Allen · September 18, 2015 at 12:55 pm

    Once I figured that out, I was okay. However, In VBA IDE, I always use Ctl+Space as auto-complete. So I changed QC hotkey to Win+h

Thank you for the update, I’m using your software since long time now and I’m happy to see the new features

John-Paul LaBorde · September 23, 2015 at 10:31 pm

Glad to see you are still going strong with QC man!
Love the new update!

Michel Fessard · October 1, 2015 at 12:33 pm

Great new release! (I was very impatient for a new one)
Thank you very much and congratulations!

Jason Black · November 20, 2015 at 1:40 am

One of the first pieces of software I install once I restore my machine. I don’t know what I would do without it! 🙂

Keep up the great work!!

Michel Fessard · November 20, 2015 at 3:07 pm

Same for me.
First softs installed after a reset of my PC:
1) AV + other security tools
2) Total Commander
3) Quick Cliq

Thank you very much!
Simple, light, free, still compatible (win 10). It’s my favorite launcher!

levski · March 29, 2017 at 4:32 pm

Excellent! Thank you for the constant development of the program. The best-most convenient launcher for Windows.

Alain · October 7, 2018 at 3:16 pm

Thank you a ton for your apps. I’m using more than 3 years now. It’s the most used app in my pc. I hope if you can make it High DPI compatible.
