Cameyo's application bar allows easily launching and switching between applications

Cameyo app bar is an optional feature that appears at the bottom of the screen in app sessions:

Newer servers will already have this installed by default, but older servers may need to download it. In that case, follow these two steps:

Apps launcher

To pre-define apps that users can launch during their sessions, create a text file named CyoDesktopApps.xml and configure it as in this example:

  <Category Name="Quick Launch" ShowInMenu="False" Type="3">

Note: Make sure you always save the file in UTF-8 encoding!

Put the file into the C:\UserTemplate\AnyUser\%Profile%\AppData\Roaming\ folder. If one or more of these folders do not exist, you will need to create them manually.

Command-line parameters

You cannot insert execution arguments directly to the xml file. Instead, create an .lnk shortcut with the parameters you need, and point the Path to it (see GeoGebra.lnk in the above example).

Auto-hiding task bar

To auto-hide the task bar, create the following system-wide environment variable: CAMEYO_TASKBARMODE= 2
