FogBugz + Launchy

Here’s a cool tip for you Launchy users out where who also use FogBugz.

Setup FogBUGZ as a weby URL, and enjoy quick-fire access to your FogBugz cases. Here’s how:

  1. Download and install Launchy.
  2. Open Launchy (ALT+SPACE by default, but I changed mine to WIN+A).
  3. Click the settings button (cog icon at top-right).
  4. Select Weby in the “Available Plugins” section.
  5. Click the plus (+) button at the bottom right to add a new link.
  6. Enter the following (without all the quotes):

Now you can view a FogBugz case by doing the following:

  1. ALT+SPACE (or your shortcut to open Launchy).
  2. Enter “FogBugz”(or type “fog” and select fogbugz from the list, from then on, FogBugz will come up first when you enter “fog”).
  3. Press TAB.
  4. Enter a FogBugz case number and hit ENTER.

Your default browser opens up right at the FogBugz case page. How neat is that?
