LifeHacker points to some interesting tools for Windows XP:

  • Launchy lets you just type what you want to find rather than mess with the ever cascading "all programs" menu.
  • Taskbar Shuffle lets you re arrange the buttons on your taskbar.
  • Visual Task Tips gives you previews of your windows similarly to the taskbar in Windows Vista. It does not seem to work for all windows in my testing though.
