However, if I want to start only Commander (say, for testing purposes), Launcher in its "automatic start" configuration is cumbersome because it starts everything (i.e., everything it is configured to start). On my computer, Launcher takes 25+ seconds to get everything going and 20+ seconds to shut everything down. Inconvenient if testing only one member of the suite. This is the reason I was looking for Commander in the Windows Start menu dropdown. Is it practical for to get Commander to show up in the Windows Start menu dropdown?

+ Yes:


+ Alternatively, you could pin Commander on the Windows Task Bar, or add a Commander icon to the Windows desktop.

Another question: The help page
"file:///C:/DXLab/Launcher/Help/ControllingApplications.htm" has a section named "Group Control Buttons". That section indicates an Abort button is included in Launcher, along with Start, Minimize, Restore and Terminate. My Launcher (2.1.2) window does not have the Abort button. 
Should the Abort button be there?

+ The Abort button appears when you click the Start button, replacing the Start button until all enabled applications have reported themselves as "running". Then the Abort button is replaced by the Start button.
