Here is a very handy little free program I use occasionally.

You know what a pain it is to click "START" > "PROGRAMS" > Right Click then > "SORT BY NAME" to alphabetize the list so you can find a program you want to run.

With Launchy you simply push two keys,"usually Alt plus Space". A simple little box (that has many skins if you like to customize) comes up. You start typing the name of the program; like "Word" or "Excel". Either the program will come up, or maybe a list you can choose from, hit enter and up it comes.
