What about WhatsApp!!!

webfork on 2016-09-05 15:13

@Realist: I haven't tested it because, unlike Isotoxin, WhatsApp is only out for Win8 and higher, closed source, and and is owned by Facebook. Their Wikipedia page lists some other concerns.

freakazoid on 2016-09-10 19:34

@Realist - Just go to web.whatsapp.com. Their "app" is just a wrapper for that.

Attention! Version 4.50 changes the ini-file to unicode (UTF16 LE) - as a side-effect the dropdown-zoombox in the menu (if activated) doesn't show up the percentage-steps any more, only %%. You can still type in the desired percentage and press enter, but the predefined steps don't work. This sure will be corrected, but if someone can't live with that: stay with V4.44 until next version.

zorro on 2018-02-28 06:26

As mentioned above the problems with unicode were solved. Zip now contains a text file with following advise:

>> Please start IrfanView and call (once) any of the dialogs:
- Properties (P), or
- File->Open (O), or
- File->Save As (S), or
- Batch (B)
to convert/set IrfanView INI file to UNICODE mode !

If the INI file is not converted to Unicode, some of the options (like filenames, paths or text options)
may NOT be saved properly and the feature may not be working as expected.

a) C:\Program Files*\* OR
b) Root of a drive
This is generally required by programs that need to dynamically update their resources within those paths.

JPEGView v1.0.37

billon on 24 Feb 2018
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Feb 2018
  • Suggested by infimum

JPEGView is a minimalistic viewer/editor designed to view images from digital cameras full screen and with highest quality possible. Basic image editing functionality is provided, allowing correction for typical problems as color cast, high/low contrast, orientation and under- or overexposure very quickly and interactively during review of the images. The program can view and save JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF, or WEBP. Includes batch rename and copy features.

While JPEGView is not intended as a replacement for a full-blown image editor, the included tool set of commonly-used modifications means such editors should be needed less often.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Alternatively, JPEGView Portable is also available from PortableApps.

Needless to say, this program is drastically better than the included image viewer for Win10.

alanc on 2018-02-25 05:00

I agree with the positive comments. I scanned all my ancient negatives and slides to huge tif files. This is the only viewer that opens these full screen instantly on my machine. Other progs have more functionality, and I have those, but as a graphics viewer on a Windows box, this is unrivalled.

To put it on the right click context menu for a folder, make and run a reg file as follows:
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\JPEGView]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\JPEGView\command]
@="C:\\Portables\\Graphics\\JPEGView64\\JPEGView.exe \"%1\""
_____________________________________________________________________________________________


where "C:\\Portables\\Graphics\\JPEGView64\\JPEGView.exe" is your path to the exe.

For simple, repetitive tasks that you don't need a big program to fully automate, this can be a surprising time saver. Two caveats: 1. Do not touch the keyboard or mouse while the macro is running. 2. If you want to stop a process in the middle, hit ctrl+shift+alt+P. Very, very happy with it.

There is a new version of mp3DirectCut- 2.21, but I do not like the new icon and will stick to mp3DirectCut 2.20. I do not get it why all developers embrace the ugly and unbearable M$ flat design.

Specular on 2016-02-20 12:47

In v2.22 there's a 'Configuration Storage' setting under Prefs>Folders. By default it's unchecked. Does it need to be enabled for portable use?

j7n on 2017-04-06 22:59

The new "flat" design with similar monochrome icons is a step back in usability. Normal appearance, apart from grouping of toolbar buttons, can be restored under Configuration -> Layout.

The program is a good tool for trimming old MP3 encodes without incurring further quality loss. Glitches are avoided if the MP3 is upconverted to 320 kbit beforehand with MP3Packer.

I wish it also supported common simple video soundtrack formats.

@ __philippe: Thanks ... and updated ;)

__philippe on 2016-07-29 13:17

Annoyingly, SysInternals' powers-that-be no longer deem worth their while to provide a changelog of their recent releases.

Current cases in point: ProcessMonitor v3.30, AutoRuns v13.62,

Sloppy version control management, if you ask me...:-(

On a positive point, they resumed adjusting correctly the internal PE tags version numbering of their updated utilities, which proved rather baffling for a while

(see smaragdus' related post:
http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=82073#p82073

Regrettably, some of SysInternals' recently updated tools now fail to run under WinXP......:-(
(e.g. Procmon v3.30 fails under winXP, despite the "Process Monitor runs on Windows XP SP2"
plain statement found in the Procmon.chm HTML help file)

Cases in point:
ProcessMonitor fails as of v3.30 (blue screen crash, last XP working version v3.20)
SigCheck fails as of v2.40 (last XP working version v2.30)

@ __philippe do you know is there gonna be any effort made to correct this? I'm kinda surprised cuz I have always thought of SysInternals as being a first rate top notch entity, but they are not showing that in this case.Even if the changelogs are only interesting or necessary to a few people in my opinion that reason enough to continue with accurate data.

Great little utility. I regularly have a lot of zip files I need to move to different locations. This is a real timesaver.

Everything v1.4.1.895

billon on 9 Feb 2018
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Feb 2018
  • Suggested by Drutt

Everything is a powerful search tool that locates files and folders by file name instantly, and includes an FTP and Web server interface. It also can search files by their contents. Unlike Windows search, Everything initially displays all files and folders on your computer. You simply type in part of the desired file name to limit what files and folders are displayed instantly. The more you type, the more specific the list becomes.

Note that the instant-search capability only works on NTFS/ReFS-formatted drives and only uses file and folder names in a file index. The program can separately catalog non-NTFS/ReFS and network servers for searching on a schedule.

  • An issue when using invalid characters to rename a file.
  • A crash when rendering tall or wide images.
  • An issue when shutting down Everything would cause it to miss changes.
  • A memory alignment issue.
  • Database corruption when renaming a folder when folder size indexing is enabled or when there is a folder exclude.
  • An issue with circular NTFS/ReFS folder parents.

sort=Type

Stick A Note v3.0.1

billon on 8 Feb 2018
  • 357KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 31 Dec 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Stick A Note is an unique note-taking program in that it connects to an individual application window. Notes move with the window and disappear when window is not in focused or when the program hotkey is toggled (Win+N by default). Includes available color and hotkey customization, and all notes are saved to the application folder as text files.

Useful for keeping notes on individual applications such as usability or beta testing, or for keeping notes on infrequent/difficult programs to serve as reminders for use.

Note: Some software changes the window title with program behavior, which will make Stick A Note think it's working with a separate program (for example, this happens whenever you type anything into the search box of "Everything"). Stick A Note's associated note will no longer be visible (though still saved to disk) until the window returns to it's previous state.

I prefer TreeSize Free - it's fast, presents all the information you need and you can even filter your search results.

It also scans network attached storage and network shares. Perfect solution for me.

@davidroper

A mere seven years late, ...and counting....;-)

The 161 files included in the "tclocklight-040702-3.zip" package are mostly source modules kindly provided by the developer for the benefit of DIY hackers.

For basic execution, only the following files are required:

• TCLOCK .EXE 44544 09/07/2004 17:16 A--- tclock.exe
• TCLOCK .INI 1024 10/20/2016 15:09 A--- tclock.ini
• TCDLL~1 .TCL 48128 09/07/2004 17:16 A--- tcdll.tclock
• TCLANG .TXT 8234 06/10/2004 11:58 A--- tclang.txt
• TCMENU .TXT 477 05/09/2004 21:53 A--- tcmenu.txt

All the same, a nifty, teensy configurable clock utility, sitting pretty in WinXP system tray...;-)
