Task Launcher For Windows Mobile Phones

by mohit on January 24, 2010

If you had recently bought a Windows Mobile device 6.5.x, you must have been quite annoyed with the new taskbar at the top that significantly seems to waste the screen space of the mobile phone. If you notice, it just drop downs a set of notification icons which is probably less functional for you. But you can do a smart work here.You could change this to make something meaningful like having quick launcher.

Here is this application known as the Task launcher(developed by RAMMAN of XDA Developer forum). It’s a little tool that shows a customizable launch pad when you hit the taskbar. And you can also launch something else just in case you are not satisfied with this launch pad . So give your WM home screen a all new look as desired by you.

It will also let you disable HTC Notification, Samsung notification if you’re on OMNIA, or the annoying taskbar from newer 6.5.x builds.


Run the CAB file on your phone. All files are copied into program files directory. There’s also a shortcut installed in \Windows\Startup to automatically launch it after reboot. After installation the Taskbar Launcher is not yet running. Sorry this is only first beta. So go into the program directory and launch tbl.exe or if you’re too lazy just soft reset.


Hit the taskbar and then the icon of the program you want to launch. The close button below hides the window again. You can also tap and hold anywhere in the window and a little popup menu appears. Here you can stop Taskbar launcher.
