UrbanWood Skin for Launchy by danldurall UrbanWood Skin for Launchy by danldurall
Urbanwood v1 Skin for Launchy.

-Designed for a keystroke-activated suggestion list
-Tweaked fonts for easy file path viewing
-Narrow but noticeable scroll bar frees space while staying functional

Zoom for full detail. Urbanwood sports a subtle blur gradient just below the search bar and a paper textured base.

This is my second attempt at building a simple skin for Launchy. It's designed to be relatively minimal, with a manual keystroke needed to drop down the suggestion list.

To do this, simply set the "Auto open delay" field to "20000 ms" under the "Suggestion List" section in General Options. Hitting the "down arrow" key will pop open the suggestion list instead of it auto-opening after a short time.

I would also recommend setting the number of "simultaneous visible suggestions" to "7" and "max number of suggestions" to "20" on a 20+ inch monitor. Enabling the "Name and path" suggestion visibility is useful too, as the font parameters were designed to be functional for file paths, with a narrow but visible scroll bar for extra content space.

Any critiques/suggestions still welcome! :)

Just a quick, cheap version of a poll:

Of those that have downloaded this, how many are actually using or will use the skin?
