Re: Vivaldi - Opera Browser Alternative

Some other settings of the browser itself will also reset as you move (default search engine and homepage last I checked). Vivaldi doesn't lose them in my experience. Maybe because Vivaldi implements its own UI (including the search box) and therefore stores those preferences independently of Chrom...

Re: Vivaldi - Opera Browser Alternative

A general question regarding the portability of chrome-based browsers: The Vivialdi database-entry states that by moving the installation to another PC some settings are reset, including the list of installed extensions - due to chrome generating a hardware binding. That's right (for Vivaldi) - I t...

Re: VLC - media player

Whats the problem with the UI? I guess it would be faster to answer what's not a problem... First of all, getting video to show in true fullscreen (i.e. so that it really covers the entire screen, and there are no controls in the way) requires two keypresses. F11 to enter fullscreen mode, then Ctrl...

Re: VLC - media player

I tried out VLC 3.0.0.

Its UI is as terrible as ever. I don't like it at all.

I need to leave MPC-HC though, as it's no longer being maintained. Maybe I'll switch to mpv even on Windows... (I'm already using it on GNU/Linux)

Re: Default portable applications in Windows 10

Windows 10 does not allow a program to set itself as default (because that capability was often abused).

Most likely is that MPC-BE's option to set itself as default doesn't work.

Re: Portable 7-zip

Security vulnerabilities in 7-Zip have been publicly disclosed. Worst of all, these vulnerabilities are fixed only in 7-Zip 18.00 beta.

Re: Windows 9 is... Windows 10

The next major Windows 10 update (expected in March or April) will have an app that allows the user to see all the data that the OS sends to Microsoft.

There isn't really a point on waiting for release builds for this project. If you want the latest one, just get the nightly. At...

Re: Media Player Classic Home Cinema

Sadly, Media Player Classic has been my default media player forever. :( For further clarity, a detailed quote is in order here... If you're quoting the changelog, it's best to also quote the changes that MPC-HC developers made since the last stable release: + Added fallback exception handler for w...

Re: Windows 10 Snipping Tool (PStart)

Like Midas said, I think it's a bitness issue. You use 64-bit Windows 10, right? PStart is a 32-bit program, and therefore when it tries to access System32, Windows redirects it to SysWOW64. And apparently 32-bit Snipping Tool doesn't ship on 64-bit Windows. Therefore there is SnippingTool.exe in Sy...

Re: SeaMonkey Portable

Anyone can tell me what's the name of (or how to to disable) those toggle strips so characteristic of SeaMonkey ? I have been trying to recall that for days to no avail... They're called grippies . Here's an old tip about how to disable them. I don't know if it still works. http://seamonkey.ilias.c...

Re: Nominate the best new portablefreeware of 2017

I nominate Vivaldi. IMHO, it's by far the best web browser available.
