Search across an increasing number of supported services from one place. In less time than it would take you to search one service, you can search them all! We never see your queries or have access to your data, because the searches are initiated securely by your browser.


Automatically populate your launcher with the apps you use based on your recent browsing history. This is done securely and with your privacy in mind via the browser extension. None of your browsing history is sent to our servers since the population is done entirely in the browser. All we store on our servers is your launcher configuration, which means you can access it from any browser or device.

Browser Extensions

Install a browser extension to seamlessly integrate StartHQ into your workflow and access your launcher every time you open a new tab. We support all current browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and include a separate search provider and pinned site for IE and Windows 8 respectively.

Quickly access frequently used pages and features directly from the launcher, without the need to navigate the app's own UI. We give you some default links for the popular apps, but you can easily customize them to suit your needs.


Group your apps together into screens by type, project or any other categories you prefer, just like on your mobile device. Quickly switch between them using the Page Up & Down keys. We keep track of the current screen on a per device basis.

Mobile Support

Access your launcher from any device with a browser, including tablets and mobiles. We've even added support for iPhones and iPads, so you can add StartHQ directly to your home screen.

App Directory

Discover new apps that help you get your job done faster and more efficiently or get a quick overview of the apps already in use within your organization from our extensive app directory.


Extend StartHQ yourself, for example by implementing new search providers for your favorite apps using our developer API.
