As described under basics, you can easily launch up to 17 different applications (plus one idle application) with just the basic fnl.prc program mapped to one of your hard keys. If you want to launch even more than this you should use shortcuts.

A shortcut is one of the small fnl_X.prc files included with the installation. Once installed on the handheld they appear in the applications list as "5NL X" (where X represents a letter from A to L).

Each shortcut will behave like a completely separate copy of the 5 Nav Launcher program, with its own application slots and its own preferences. In order to avoid confusion when using multiple shortcuts you may want to use a different background colour or title for each (see Appearance Options).
