Step 2. Filling Groups with Commands [Prev] [Main] [Next]


   At this step we will fill the groups that we have just created with commands.

   Let us consider the simplest and the quickest Drag&Drop way of creating commands. To facilitate the process, we can make the main window of the program stay always 'on top' by clicking the mode toggle in the toolbar (see Fig. 1).

   We will start with the shortcuts that you put on your desktop. First minimize all open windows to get access to the desktop and drag the shortcuts that you need to the window of PS Hot Launch with the mouse. In the same way you can drag the right shortcuts from the Quick Launch panel, from the Start Menu, as well as from any folder opened in Windows Explorer.

   You do not have to place the commands directly into groups, you can do it later by simple drag&drop.

   We recommend that you not group the commands that you are going to use most often. It will let you find and run them in the menu more quickly.

   After placing our commands into groups we can improve the visual perception of the commands using separators.

   Separators are added in the following manner:
- call the drop-down menu for adding elements by clicking the arrow in the right part of the button,
- choose the Add Separator menu item (you can also do the same by pressing the hot key <Ctrl+S>.

   Now we can consider the results of our work:

   Our menu has been formed and is (hopefully) handy to get around. Now we can test it by right-clicking the icon of PS Hot Launch in the system tray.

   The menu is a very good thing. But we also wish to run our commands even quicker. To do it, we will assign hot keys to groups and commands at the next step.
