FYI I logged in to post this

The "p" in the rufus executible name makes it portable; otherwise, it writes to reg.
For example:

rufus-2.12p.exe is portable
rufus-2.12.exe is not.

Was driving me insane finding reg keys.. :)

Great program. Small footprint and quick. Good tool for formatting USB drives and for making USB drives bootable with ISOs or DOS.
