Applications on demand with Apwal program launcher
READY FOR ACCESS
Launching a program by clicking
with your mouse can have a few
disadvantages. Users lose their
way in nested menu structures,
and desktop icons can become
hidden behind windows. The
Apwal program launcher makes it

to develop Apwal , an icon-based
program launcher that pops up a userdefined
selection of icons under the
mouse cursor when called on.
The program name is an acronym for advanced
