Quick-Launch Documentation



The FunMouse QuickLaunch toolbar is a quick and convenient way of accessing and launching your favorite programs without first having to open the start menu / screen. The toolbar can be customized with 22 of your own shortcuts from the settings tab in the FunMouse settings program.


The toolbar can be shown when touching the very bottom part of your task-bar (Default), from an extra button assignment, mouse gesture or hotspot shortcut. As with everything else in FunMouse, the feature can also be turned off completely.


On first install the toolbar will display the icons you see in the screen shot above. As you add more shortcuts, the width of the toolbar will grow until you reach the maximum of 22 custom shortcuts.

Whenever you receive new mail, the number shown here will indicate the amount of new or unread emails you have received if you have set up FunMouse to check your mail accounts. Hovering your mouse over this number will show your individual accounts with the amount of new / unread mail in each account. (see mail toolbar in image above)


When this number is 0 FunMouse will check for new mail immediately when you click the number without waiting for the mail check interval you specified on the settings tab of the FunMouse settings window. When this number is above 0, clicking it will pin the mail tool bar.


When the mail toolbar is pinned, the actions you specified when you set up your accounts will be performed when you click an account icon.  Clicking the total sum icon FunMouse will check for new mail immediately when you click the number without waiting for the mail check interval you specified on the settings tab of the FunMouse settings window.
