This user-configurable software interface provides users with the means to simply ‘pin’ specific programs and work files to particular keyboard keys and software tiles. One key press or click of a mouse launches Program Picker, a second directly accesses the particular program or file that’s needed.
Compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10 PCs, Program Picker presents users with a simple page of four rows of software tiles – 40 tiles in total - mapped to the top four rows of a standard QWERTY keyboard. As well as its rapid access and task switching function, the interface grid also clearly highlights all active programs and files.
For more demanding PC workstation configurations, Program Picker actually supports 200 pages of 40 tiles, equating to 8,000 different programs and files, all accessible via successive page-turn clicks or page number selections. For smaller touch screen devices, Program Picker presents a 4x3 selection grid with larger tiles, accessed via the 12 standard function keys.
And to help users keep a tidier desktop when using multiple programs and files, Program Picker also includes a handy ‘Quick Snap’ function enabling instant resizing of active program windows. Using seven pre-defined keys or tiles, users are able to quickly select half and third page (landscape or portrait), quarter, sixth and eighth screen window sizes.
Also included in Program Picker is a ‘Switcher Mode’ designed to make copying and pasting of data between up to four different programs as easy as possible. Accessed by holding down the CTRL key for a period defined in the Settings window, Switcher Mode is used in conjunction with CTRL-X, CTRL-C, CTRL-V and CTRL-R.
In addition, Program Picker also provides users with much easier access to the standard Windows Shut Down menu. Hitting the backspace key brings up the six standard shutdown options, selectable by function key or software tile. In a similar way, the F11 key gives professional PC users faster access to the complete menu of Power User (Win-X) commands.
Adam Bond, Program Picker inventor and Director of Bond Interface Design, commented, “Program Picker is all about creating an easy-to-use universal interface for PCs and tablets that literally everybody can use, to save themselves a lot of time and improve their user experience and enjoyment – whatever programs they’re using and whether they’re using a keyboard, a mouse or a touch screen.”
He continued, “Program Picker has been designed to provide all kinds of PC users – from the complete novice to the professional software developer – with a simple and intuitive means of accessing their favourite or most-used programs and data files, and switching between them fast, with the absolute minimum of fuss and using the fewest number of key strokes possible.”
