Oh, I forgot to mention that it come with installer, but it work on portable usb. Just extract IpSwitch.exe and run it. Program settings will be saved in data.ini in same location as IpSwitch.exe

@tpig:
Don't recommend outdated crap please.
Eusing's free IP Switcher refuses to work on anything better than Windows XP. So it's virtually useless.

Please would someone edit the 'Synopsis' so it is less misleading. Apparently, this software is for ' ... mobile users ... at ... office ... ' yet is only 'free for personal use'!

LibreOffice Portable v5.4.0 Updated

billon on 14 Aug 2017
  • 493MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Aug 2017
  • Suggested by JohnTHaller

LibreOffice is a complete productivity suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, database, drawing tool and more. Includes strong compatibility for 100s of file formats including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio etc). The program is similar to OpenOffice, a program that it was derived from, but has added many new features and improvements.

LibreOffice Portable is a special build developed in conjunction with the publisher. A "Still" version that's more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities is available via the website link. On systems without Java installed, some functions such as document creation wizards and the Base database application etc. can be enabled by adding jPortable, though this is optional and can be skipped if those functions are not needed. Alternatively, X-LibreOffice is also available.

Cross platform with versions available for Mac, Linux/BSD (comes default with most distros) and supports a variety of extensions. A more stable "Still" version is available from the website link.

@ Mike.S.G.: Thanks ... and updated ;)

CornHolio the Gringo on 2015-06-20 17:14

As many knows, LibreOffice Portable from PortableApps.com takes a long time to startup. On my system it takes 13 seconds from a fresh boot.
X-LibreOffice takes 4 seconds, from a fresh boot, so to all of You who
wants the portable version to start faster, use X-LibreOffice from WinPenPack.com.
Calc, Writer and the other stuff also loads faster with X-LibreOffice.

JohnTHaller on 2015-06-20 23:36

LibreOffice Portable is compressed using UPX to make it a lot smaller (268MB vs X-LO's 523MB for an English install) which also speeds up startup times from the vast majority of external drives. The tradeoff is that it will take a few extra seconds to start off an internal drive vs an uncompressed copy... 3 vs 5 seconds for a cold start on my machine.

PDF-XChange Viewer v2.5.322.7 Updated

billon on 12 Aug 2017
  • 20MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Aug 2017
  • Suggested by Myles

PDF-XChange Viewer is a feature-rich program that displays multiple PDF documents within a tabbed interface. Edit features include the ability to rotate documents, add comments/annotations to any PDF file, apply custom stamps from any image/PDF file/Windows clipboard, mark-up pages with text and objects, and type directly on any PDF page in "Typewriter" mode. The program supports exporting to BMP/JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc., or extracting text from a PDF page/file. Additional features include capturing the document with the snapshot tool (copies an area to clipboard), measuring tools for distance, area and perimeter, and more. A recommended picture-to-text OCR plugin is available (thanks Bruce) as is a PDF help file.

Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.

Note:

  • The free PDF-XChange Viewer lacks some features present in the registered version (payware) and, while some "Pro" features can still be used, they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving
  • For 64-bit, see forum post

@zorro:
I updated my default PDF viewer (PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.320) today. Tracker Software still updates the Viewer.
Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

PAFuser on 2017-06-30 15:11

Mixture is correct. Only need as viewer with able to add text comment (download utility bills and mark date paid, less paper stored).

I fail to see what makes FocusWriter's user interface less user-friendly than that of Q10 of WriteMonkey, the two other similar programs I can find. By the way, FocusWriter isn't stuck to full-screen either: just press F11…

AndTheWolf on 2013-06-30 16:08

Link still points to FocusWriterPortable_1.3.2.1.paf.exe

JohnTHaller on 2013-06-30 17:03

AndTheWolf - It's fixed. Some editors keep pointing to static URLs instead of the download page for some reason. So, when it's updated, the download winds up wrong.

FileOptimizer v10.10 Updated

billon on 28 Jul 2017
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Jul 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.
