This same version was offered here in January 2017. I installed 2.0.1 with high hopes of using it, but upon the next boot, the program displayed its Control Panel window, and left the entry on the Task bar, instead of minimizing to the System Tray area (and clearing the Task bar). Since there was no free tech support, the only recourse was to close the Control Panel dialog. Closing its Control Panel dialog exited the program (did not show up in System Tray). Therefore, I could not ever test the program.Sep 8, 2017 at 10:53 am #8879708
An interesting little utility. It takes some getting used to, it is difficult – or is it cumbersome – to add applications to the list which are not running.
This install used the ‘extra mouse button’ but the program closes unless the button is pressed all the time. when the “allow click activation’ is on the cursor is stuck in the GiMeSpace window, making it hard to add new programs. Perhaps I am doing it wrong or the settings are not correct.
I will keep it for a week and see how useful it is. Note that having multiple browser windows (not tabs) only shows the URL in the text above the icon. That could be done betterSep 8, 2017 at 11:03 am #8879737
Installed, added about 10 shortcuts, everything was working fine. Wish there are more user definable shortcuts, like combination key and mouse. Text under icons would be great too.
Restarted computer and all I have left was only 1 shortcut. Others gone from menu. I hope there is a solution to make permanent settings.
Tried running as admin but it wont let me add new shortcuts. Since it installs into Program Files x86 and writing data by an app is usually protected by the OS thinking of installing it into another place on HDD, might help. Anyone experience similar or have some tips?

Doesn’t look promising, going to pass. I don’t want to be a beta tester, I want a
programs that works. Thanks anyways!Sep 8, 2017 at 4:54 pm #8880443
Regarding the issue above:
To easily add new shortcuts to the window: click on the tray icon so that both the options and shortcuts window appear, now you can drag new shortcuts there. Close the options window when you are done.
Sometimes windows shuts down this program to quick so there is no time to save your shortcut configuration. To prevent this, exit the program manually by right-clicking on the tray icon.
This program is developed for using with the good old windows desktop applications. Windows store apps are running in a sandbox that is almost inaccessible from normal windows applications, so that is why they don’t show an icon.
thanks for the feedback!
