 2   jEdit bundles the <span class="emphasis"><em>jEditLauncher</em></span> package and automatically installs it on Windows. jEditLauncher is a set of components that make it easy to start jEdit, manage its command
 3   line settings, and launch files and macro scripts.
 4  </p><p>
 5   The jEditLauncher package installs three shortcuts for running jEdit:  one at the top-level of the <span><b class="guilabel">Start</b></span> menu, another in the <span><b class="guilabel">Programs</b></span> submenu, and a third on your desktop.  Any of these may be deleted or moved without
 6   affecting jEdit's operation.  To launch jEdit, simply double-click one of these shortcuts
 7   as you would for any Windows application.
 8  </p><p>
 9   The jEditLauncher package includes a utility for changing the command line
10   parameters that are stored with jEditLauncher and used every time it runs jEdit.
11   You can change the Java interpreter used to launch jEdit, the amount of heap memory,
12   the working directory and other command line parameters.  To make these changes,
13   select <span><b class="guilabel">Set jEdit Parameters</b></span> from the jEdit group in
14   the Programs menu, or run <b class="userinput"><tt>jedit /p</tt></b> from a command
15   line that has jEdit's installation directory in its search path.  A dialog
16   will appear that allows you to change and save a new set of command line
17   parameters.
18  </p><p>
19   The package also adds menu items to the context or &#8220;<span class="quote">right-click</span>&#8221;
20   menu displayed by the Windows shell when you click on a file item in the
21   desktop window, a Windows Explorer window or a standard file selection dialog.
22   The menu entries allow  you to open selected files in jEdit, starting the
23   application if necessary. It will also allow you to open all files in a
24   directory with a given extension with a single menu selection. If a BeanShell
25   macro script with a <tt class="filename">.bsh</tt> extension is selected, the menu
26   includes the option of running that script within jEdit. If you have the
27   <span class="application">JDiff</span> plugin installed with jEdit, you can also
28   select two files and have jEdit compare them in a side-by-side graphical display.
