(Windows) SlickRun: Looks cool with a large font

One cool thing about SlickRun (Windows launcher) is that you can set the font and its size. Here I'm using Palatino Linotype, italic, 48pt.

SnagIt Capture

I got the idea from the Enso launcher, which also uses a large font, but isn't free. Also it requires you to hold down Caps Lock - quasimodes are great for a lot of things, but probably not for a launcher app.

In the screenshot above, I'm using YubNub to do a Google search for the word "amanuensis".


  • Your right, Slick Run rocks even more when you blow the font up. I've had it this way for a while now.
