Modern Desktop Application Manager - Krento

How do you execute applications on your PC? Do you consider this aspect of computer operation important? Do you want to enhance it and put new advanced opportunities to speed the process? Take a look on the freeware utility Krento, and you might be able to disregard the old way, you used, forever.

With Krento you can launch your programs or open web pages from a visually attractive and comfortable to use circular 3D dock. You can save and load your docks, having more than one application set available.

Krento runs in the background from the system tray, and can be launched by either right-clicking the icon, clicking your mouse's scroll wheel, hitting Windows + C, or double-clicking a toggled "pulsar"—basically a small, semi-transparent animated icon—in the corner of your screen. To launch a program, just click on its box (or "stone", as Krento calls it). Or, if you don't want to move from the keyboard, you can also hit ctrl + the function key that corresponds to the program.

To add programs to the launcher, just drag and drop them onto a stone. You can even create multiple "circles" for different categories of programs, so you're not just limited to 12. Krento is also skinnable (it comes with a bunch of its own skins, but is also compatible with RocketDock skins), and takes up very little RAM and CPU, which is always nice—especially for something that looks this good.

Note that the stone can be a shortcut or even a mini-application (widget).

Krento requires .Net Framework 2.0 installed and compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7
