Shortcuts can be quite useful. If the road from here to there takes a bunch of twists and turns before you arrive at your destination, it's going to take you longer to get there from here. But if you know the secret shortcut, you can potentially cut out a lot of hours and miles from your trip. Those smart people who work with software know all about this.

Whether you're looking at aliases, accelerator keys, or symbolic links, what you really have is a bunch of shortcuts. Rather than having to dig through the My Programs directory to find your app, you can click on a shortcut to start the program. Organize your shortcuts cleverly, maybe on your desktop, or in a menu, and you're going to get there even quicker. That's kind of the idea behind Windows' Start Menu and Quick Launch. That's also the idea behind Radian.

Radian is an application launcher that aims to help you get things done quicker. Now instead of having to dig through folders, or even click on menus, all you need to do is to right click on your screen. No matter where your mouse is on your screen, you've now got access to your Radian menu. Set it up with your most important or most used applications, and see whether your efficiency improves. It's designed in such a way that it shouldn't interfere with your other right-click commands, so you're not really sacrificing functionality that you're familiar with for this new tool.

A free download, Radian is a Windows application.
