Getting Started

You can now help us by translating Shuttle !

On Windows, Shuttle can be launched by clicking on its shortcut which can be found directly on the desktop or from the Start menu. The program should then start in the notification center. Its icon can be found in the system tray, at the bottom right of the screen. Clicking on its icon will show Shuttle's main window.

In order to add a new website (we refer to them as "bookmarks") just click on the "plus" (+) button. A dialog will open to ask you for the URL of the website you want to add. Enter it and validate to see a new icon being added to the bookmarks bar. You can now click on this icon at any time to display the website.

A bookmark can be deleted by right-clicking on its icon.

The settings can be edited by clicking on the gear. They make possible to manage your preferences by offering, for instance, to launch Shuttle on boot or to force Shuttle to stay opened.

All updates are automatic and new versions are checked at the launch of the application. You can also search for updates by clicking on the arrows below the settings. If you need help to setup or use Shuttle, or you want to report a bug, please contact us at
