Google Chrome App Launcher allows users to easily access all their Chrome apps from the Windows taskbar.

Easy Installation and Setup

Chrome App Launcher is easy to setup. You can find the software through searching it on Google. Once you find it, you log in with your Google username and password. It will automatically install it on your computer, and you will see the Chrome App Launcher icon on your Windows taskbar.

Convenience of Use

After installation, you can click on the icon to access all the Chrome Apps that you have installed. Applications like Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, and Google Search are available at your fingertips.

On the Chrome App Launcher, if you see an icon with a shortcut symbol on it, it means that it will open the application on a browser. For example, if you click on the Gmail icon, it will open your default web browser and take you to the Gmail page.

The App Launcher also has a search function. It allows you to search for an app from your taskbar directly and install it. If it is a standalone app, the app launcher will open it up in its own window.

Multiple Views and Accounts

To keep the clutter down, it uses multiple views. If you set up your launcher to display a certain number of apps, then it will create a second view if you have more than that number. This allows you to organize your apps according to priority.

If you have multiple Google accounts, you can change your account using the Setting icon in the upper right corner of the launcher.

Conclusion

Chrome App Launcher makes it easy to use apps from your desktop. It is a worthy software to check out, especially if you work with a lot of Google apps.
