We have reviewed too many application launchers in the past, some of which are similar while others provide distinct functionalities. And then there are some programs that enhance user accessibility by providing ergonomically friendly interface. One of those tools that really caught our attention is an application for Windows named Click.to that we covered some time back in July 2011. This nifty little application would let you save mouse clicking for performing lengthy tasks by providing you with links of all popular websites and frequently used applications. If you’re wondering how it works, well it actually integrates with the Windows clipboard copy action, and provides you with quick access links to user specified applications. Even thought the application was already quite enticing, Click.to has now updated its arsenal of websites & applications, one of which is the addition of Skype to the list. As Skype is one of the most popular phenomenon of internet today, its integration into this widely popular app seemed imminent. Users of both VoIP giant Skype and Click.to will be delighted to learn that they are now capable of calling any phone number from anywhere on the desktop, using Skype. Details are provided after a short break.
The application still comprises off the same interface design we all allured. All the interface fondness aside, lets focus on how Click.to integrates Skype. To enable Skype in the Click.to application list, you are provided with two choices, you may either choose it during installation or select it from Options menu.
The next thing you should do is select phone number from your desktop and copy it to your clipboard. You will notice that the the specified application list will appear on your screen. Click the Skype icon to initiate a Skype call directly without having to manually enter numbers into Skype.
Note that you will have to allow access to Click.to in Skype when using the application for the first time, and to do that, click Allow Access which in turn will enable Click.to access to Skype.
So there you have it, its good to see that the developers have now added Skype, which would make calling a lot easier than it was before. What’s more, there are other few changes here and there. Click.to itself works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Both 32-bit and 64-bit OS editions are supported. We tested it out on Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit.
