How to start your favorite application directly from the Delphi IDE

I'm sure you have several "small" but powerful programming tools you use every day (Screen Ruler or FolderSize, for example).

The bottom of the Delphi Tools menu is customizable. You can remove the tools listed there or add other installed or custom tools you want to access while using Delphi.

Here's how to add a tool to the IDE so that you can start it without "leaving" Delphi:
  1. Select Tools - Configure Tools from the main Delphi IDE menu. This will bring up the "Tool Options" dialog.


  1. Click the [Add] button. The Tool Properties dialog box appears.
  2. Specify a title for the program. The title you specify will be listed on the Tools menu.
  3. Specify the program file or choose Browse to select it from a list.
  4. Specify the working directory for the program and any startup parameters, if necessary.
  5. Click [OK] to close the Tool Properties dialog.
  6. Your selection appears on the Tools list in the Tool Options dialog box. Close it on the [Close] button.
  7. Your favorite tool is on the Tools menu.
