Quick Launch

Available for: Windows and Mac clients.

Quick Launch provides users with an easy way to access commonly used programs and websites. Quick Launch items can be launched from the Open Mobile right-click menu, or from the toolbar in the Open Mobile interface.

To add a Quick Launch item:

  1. Click Add Application/URL.
  2. In Name, enter the name of the application as it will appear in Quick Launch menu.
  3. In Description, type a short description of the application.
  4. In Type, select whether the item is an application or URL.
  5. In URL/Application Path, enter either a complete URL (which will open in the user’s default browser) or a local application path. By default, if no path is specified, Open Mobile searches for Quick Launch applications in the default Windows directory (C:\Windows).
  6. In Arguments, enter any arguments the application needs to run. If there is more than one argument, separate them by space characters. Note: Windows Environmental variables are not supported in the Quick Launch application path. However, they are supported in the Arguments field.
  7. In Start application/program in, enter the directory in which the application will start.
  8. In Icon, click Browse, and then browse to the application’s icon file. The icon will be displayed in the Open Mobile Quick Launch toolbar. Note: if no icon is selected, the Quick Launch item will not be displayed in the Quick Launch Toolbar. However, it will still be displayed (by name) in the Open Mobile system tray right-click menu.
  9. Always Visible in Application Bar: If checked, the application icon will not scroll in the toolbar.
  10. If Open Mobile should automatically connect to the Internet when this application is Quick Launched from the system tray, select the corresponding checkbox.
  11. If Open Mobile should automatically connect to corporate resources by VPN when this application is Quick Launched, select the corresponding checkbox.
