Quick Cliq: Portable launcher and productivity tool for Windows

We try out a lot of things to keep our work organized. For instance, we try organizing icons on our desktop, create shortcuts for launching various files and folders and what not. But, over a period of time all our attempts turn futile as all this becomes unmanageable somehow. Programs or tools that can speed up your daily computer activities by giving links to folders, files and commands quickly can come to the rescue. And this is where Quick Cliq finds its potent use.

Quick Cliq is light, Simple and efficient productivity tool. It is the fastest and most convenient utility to launch programs or to open folders and files. All it takes is a simple mouse gesture–a right-click and slight downward pull to launch the program. Once launched, it can be used to open any of its following menus namely,

  • Clipboard manager – Holds binary data (files/folders) as well as application specific data. It also saves the clipboard’s content to a file. The manager does not automatically connect to the Windows Clipboard, but is invoked via its own unique keyboard shortcuts (CTRL+1-9 to store clips, Alt+1-9 to paste, and CTRL+Win+1-9 to append to existing text).
  • Memos menu – Keeps your notes, text, and other frequently used data. It provides quick access to notes or bits of text.
  • Recent menu – Shows recently opened file and folders.
  • Windows manager – Lets a user hide currently active windows and reveal them back with a single click.
