I would like to submit PowerPro for the database. it is a launch bar, menu and tray icon facility which is highly configurable and accepts relative paths.
I can not say if it writes to the registry but I installed it locally then copied the app folder over and un-installed it and it all seems to work OK.
I have its folder in the root of the drive and have manually removed the shortcut drive letters and it is working like a dream.
Thanks to all involved in this site.

Yeah, PowerPro is one of the most fantastic programs for Windows I've ever come across. The most amazing thing is that it uses so little resources with all the things it can do. Beats ANY programs who offer only a single one of the many functions it has and still often use several times as many resources.

But its main feature (all kinds of self-built launch bars) would hardly make sense on a foreign computer (as the shortcuts would be invalid). Though, sometimes, I think carrying the sticky notes feature of PowerPro around might be convenient. But then, there are alternatives for the sticky notes that are truly portable (like ShirusuPad).

Just would be a nice, cosy feeling to have one's main desktop application always around and feel at home in front of any computer. ;-)

PowerPro saves its settings in its own folder.
It doesn't modify the registry unless you tell it to.
I make these 2 statements from my personal experience; it doesn't mean they're the absolute truth! :)

Examples of some USB-friendly features:

1. Clipboard items and Notes are saved in the "clip" and "Notes" subfolders (they store the information un-encrypted, so be careful)

Image Image

Image

2. Snippets (predefined blocks of text that you use often and don't want to type over and over) are stored in "pproconf.pcf" file

Image

3. Various commands like window control, system control, screen-saver, desktop control, schedulers, empty recycle bin, open/close cd tray, calendar etc., etc., etc.

Image Image

Image Image

4. Now for the most important part: launching programs from menus or hotkeys.
There are a few different ways to deal with this. A more complex but efficient method is by using ".runit" script.
I use a simpler way with "do" command, but the applications launched need to be in a subfolder of PowerPro.

Example: do(pprofolder++"/utils/x64/Q-Dir.exe")
Image

Image

There are so many things to talk about PowerPro....an entire day would not be enough!

I didn't say anything about the custom context menu, tray menu, taskbar menu. I don't use these features on USB but I think it's doable. Many features need admin rights, though.

Image

There are much more features (like using .ARB script - Launchy like launcher); ask if you need something specific. I'll try to find an answer for you. :)

Thanks for that, joby_toss. A quick question, is PPro somewhat similar to Samurize?

Well...PowerPro seems less polished in this compartment. Haven't really played with Samurize; it looks cooler, but PowerPro is capable to handle some really nice system information itself (thanks for reminding me about that :) ). And PowerPro has a very powerful scripting mode which can help you accomplish much more, but I don't know how to work with that. :oops:

Example (dynamic info):

Note: CPU usage is a bit buggy in my case, so I need to use "getsystemperformancedata" plugin. Tell me if "*Info cpu" works OK for you, please.

Seeing how webfork is happy with DesktopOk's latest feature, I'd like to remind PowerPro users that something similar (global volume control using mouse wheel on screen edge - top, bottom, left, right or any combination of them) is also achievable with this tool (the advantage is this method works also with fullscreen apps):

Actually I'm using this trick with a combination of a top bar that shows the actual volume level.

Right-click on the bar lowers the volume and left-click raises, and it works with the mousewheel too. Middle mouse click toggles mute (indicated by red color).

Recently I started using a StrokesPlus hotkey too:
