Program to trigger scripts

I am looking for a menu type program, or even HTML page, that will link to scripts I have in a folder and that will trigger them.
I need something that will organize my scripts, perhaps menu style, or button style so that I can quickly view them.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What sort of scripts?  Do they require args?  Are they interactive?

I don't know of anything like that off hand, other than organizing your scripts better in Windows.

But you could put your scripts into an HTA and create a web gui for them-- though they won't existing in a folder but in the code of your site.   Even if you don't know HTML, what you need to know to do this you can learn in an afternoon.

It might seem more complicated than it actually is, but they're pretty easy to work with.  You can't execute PS from HTAs directly, but there are ways around that. http://9to5it.com/using-html-applications-as-a-powershell-gui/

One of my favorite small freeware "launcher" type utilities has always been QSEL.  It's simple enough to be easy to use, but has enough features to be valuable.  Give it a look and see what you think.  Might not be exactly what you were imagining, but might be something tht could get you the functionality without much work.

Thanks Bill.  I tried QSEL however I don't like how easy it is flaky in my opinion.

Okay, it works good for some basic needs I have, but naturally it's not the answer for everybody/everything.
