Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
SystemTrayMenu is an open source 'Desktop Toolbar' or 'Start Menu' alternative.
It offers a clear, personalized menu which can be controlled via keyboard, mouse or touchscreen. Files, links and folders are organized in several levels as dropdown menus. Various options like appearance, hotkey, autostart and behavior can be adjusted.
It is written in C# and using .NET 6.
SystemTrayMenu is portable, so it does not need to be installed. After downloading the zip file, unzip the folder, then start SystemTrayMenu.exe. After starting the application the first time you have to choose the root directory. In this directory you should put shortcuts, files and folders (App, Game, Script, URL, Network), which you are often using and especially when you can not find them over the windows start menu search. You can also consider to put there all files from your desktop.
If you have ideas, questions or a problem you can contact the developer Markus Hofknecht via GitHub or email.
- Shortcuts to folders or to network paths are resolved. Their content is displayed like a folder.
- The search function allows you to define hotkey sequences to find and open items.
- The menu stays open, if starting several applications and mouse still on the menu or if a script steals the focus for a short time.
- Menu appears transparent in case it has no focus and closes automatically when you leave the menu.
- A scrollbar appears when there are too many items, which can also be controlled via mouse wheel.
- Supports drag and drop to open an item with an application or to copy it to the desktop.
- There is a possiblity to create URL shortcuts including the browser icon via drag and drop the URL from the browser into the menu.
