Nice little player. The website has a page with plugins, but it's slightly misleading. The "Qmmp Plugin Pack" download directs to the player itself, and the others require building from source/installed dependencies.

Realist on 2016-10-06 16:25

Why do we another music player and that too which looks like WinAMP?

MIKLO on 2017-01-15 17:15

@Realist, I believe the more we have the better they will all get or they go away, after all competition makes the world go round. I would agree if all are the exact same then it is a waste, but coders usually try and add something more useful that the last version doesn't have. Just my thoughts. :)

Your instructions above say "Launch Start Tor Browser.exe and answer a few quick questions about your connection". Those instructions are misleading and confusing. I was stumped for a while until I realized the "Start Tor Browser" file is a shortcut, NOT an executable. Please correct the instructions by removing the text ".exe".

Version 4.5.2 available.

smaragdus on 2015-09-05 03:36

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

@Tom - well its FREEEEEEEE so you got more than you paid the evil author of the program. also will be nice if you spend thousands of hours developing a free program and then let others criticize you with BIG BOLD ANGRY CAPITALS!!!!

filobus on 2015-05-28 07:38

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)

This app was worth installing just for the ability to disable the minimum width restriction on vertical taskbars. Now it's nice and narrow.

Right-click the tray icon and select 'Advanced Options', then set the 'no_width_limit' value to '1'.

useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

dany on 2011-10-27 15:15

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

A good submission, thanks. CudaText is from the developer of SynWrite.

hamasaki on 2017-09-15 11:57

I`m not sure why the developer is pushing CudaText in favour of SynWrite, which I assume he intends to phase out? SynWrite is much better imo.

The link has been updated to the website itself. For apps where the download link changes with each version, you're not supposed to direct link to the download (part of the PFC guidelines on the page: "Do not enter the direct URL to the file if the filename is version dependent, or the author forbids external links. For such cases, enter the URL to the download page instead.") Otherwise, you get the old version when the app has been updated but the PFC listing has not.

I think that ConvertAll installer can easily be extracted and there is no need to use the PortableApps ConvertAll version.

LibreOffice Portable v5.4.2 Updated

  • 493MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 17 Oct 2017

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.

XP users: v.5.4.0 Rev 2 is the last supported version.

It does on My winXP, however.
Ive tryed the edition2 version from Portableapps, but its the same issue.
The issue is, theres no text in the interface (GUI).

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

Why do the dependencies include the administrator rights?
SyMenu can work with normal rights too. It can even work from read only supports or network paths.

Listary v5.00.2843 Updated

billon on 15 Oct 2017
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by Jacob125

Listary is an enhancement that allows you to quickly search almost any listing in Windows by simply typing your search terms. The program will pop up a small, semi-transparent window in Explorer windows (including open/save dialogs), Task Manager, Registry Editor and even directly on your desktop. The program works with almost any application with a system-generated list.

Although some programs will automatically jump to the first letter you type (a find-as-you-type feature of Windows Explorer), you must type quickly for more than one letter and cannot see your output. Listary brings a long-time feature of Linux to Windows, letting you enter whole words and type slower with automatic changes. Additionally, it allows wildcards and has the ability to edit your input with immediate results.

Advanced features include hotkeys, autocomplete, blacklists, favorites, a customizable window. Note that the program contains many "pro"-only features, but the program is very functional in its basic version.

TeraCopy lets you copy or move files at the maximum possible speed. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times, as well as asynchronous copy to speed up file transfers between two physical hard drives. When an error is encountered during copying/moving, TeraCopy will automatically retry and skip the files that cannot be transferred instead of aborting the entire operation. It also shows failed file transfers and lets you recopy only problem files.

Once the destination directory is selected, files can be dragged-and-dropped onto the window, even while a transfer is in progress. Once files are transferred, the Verify option uses a CRC check to see if files are identical.

It would be even better if DesktopOK didn't force an icon rearrangement with every resolution change -- in my laptop, a lot of those are temporary, resulting from user logon or the machine coming out of sleep state before, rerouting graphics to my higher resolution external screen. After some time it's galling to have to restore icon arrangement after every such hiccup. I've gone through all settings several times but up to now have been unable to disable this behavior.

From the dev :
"It's not possible to set the font size at the moment. You could try
using Windows text size scaling to scale everything up on your PC.

The exe doesn't have any dependencies - it should run on any version of
windows."

antibody on 2017-10-18 21:20

It's possible to tweak the display settings by editing the WizTree3.ini file (located in the same folder as the exe for the portable version)

fontsize = font size used in tree/file views
rowheight = row height used in tree/file views
showhorizontallines = set to 1 to draw horizontal grid lines in tree/file views
altrowcolors = set to 1 to use a gray background for each alternate row in tree/file views
decimalplaces = sets the number of decimal places used when displaying size values in GB/MB/KB. Default is 1

fontsize=8
rowheight=18
showhorizontallines=0
altrowcolors=0

@Mixture: confirmed. I just tested with the Twofish plugin. It just saves a DLL file rather than settings but other plugins likely have additional options that would not be saved locally. I'll add a note to the entry.

Mixture on 2017-01-09 18:36

Great! Now that a new and native encryption algorithm, ChaCha20, and a new password hash, Argon2, has been added in version 2.35, I changed my database settings to include the new high security features. Now, if only someone will add more native high security features to KeePass 2.xx.

webfork on 2017-01-24 01:13

@Mixture - Although ChaCha20 is listed in the release notes as an encryption algorythm, I think this is actually a random number generator. While that's part of good crypto and the program is probably more secure as a result, I wouldn't describe the 2.xx series as insecure.

I like this program. I recently used it to notice some suspicious looking port activities. I was able to close the ports down and then turn them to stealth using my firewall program. Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.

I've been using Don't Sleep for some time now and it works great for me. It updates frequently but I never had a problem with the many previous versions. I use it when doing routine unattended maintenance, when making large backups and downloads.

I think "Don't Sleep" should win an award for the most updated program on TPFW. :-) Works well though, thanks.

FileOptimizer v11.20 Updated

billon on 12 Oct 2017
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Oct 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.

Irfanview is one of the oldest, but still one of the best programs of its type. Does just about everything, its fast and very lightweight, and even works from the command-line.

zorro on 2017-10-14 20:18

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.

I've been a huge FileZilla fan since it came out back in 2001, but got a chance to test it today and WinSCP is amazing. I was able to resolve an issue with WebDAV via that program that no other program seemed capable of.

Still the best Notepad replacement for me. Opening a 30MB+ TXT file will bring down almost any text editor to its knees and doing it on a regular basis can be a frustrating and time-wasting exercise. But EditPad hardly even noticed the file size, opens them as fast, if not faster, than another text editor opening a 1KB file.

Its not the 'lightest', but its no memory hog either. The UI certainly needs some updating, but it gets the job done and does it well consistently and for me that's what counts.

__philippe on 2017-03-10 13:51

EditPadLite also includes a noteworthy (but rarely implemented) function
to search for and HIGHLIGHT simultaneously ALL occurrences of a search string.

This is a great tool.

Sure, Outlook can sort or search for e-mails by attachment, but I don't think it can do this across multiple mailboxes.

At work I have my own mailbox but need to access several shared inboxes. When contacts assure me they sent something, a default search in OutlookAttachView looks through every mailbox I have access to, and blindingly fast to boot.

masterjedi on 2014-02-25 04:04

If you have had an end user get mailbox is full notices and they have done EVERYTHING.. This is a great tool to show them that all items are can have attachments. Even their calendar items. Meeting invites are often sent with attachments such a agendas in word format, Power Point presentations and even the occasional picture file. This application scans them and finds them ALL. It has saved my first call resolutions stats.

What perplexes me about this program is its clandestine development. If one opens its history page:

one will see that "Fix minor bugs" & "Minor changes" prevail but there are no details whatsoever about them.

xor on 2016-09-26 20:13

Usage of Tablacus suits me better than Q-Dir, but it started to suffer that typical 98% CPU wacko thing that chased me away, Q-Dir also continues to be buggy since XP up to Win10 at refreshing the folders tree after deletion, renaming, etc (some times). I'm started to get suited with Double commander although still missing Drag-Select.

@xor I am not sure if I understand you. But, refreshing in general spikes the cpu. If I am at the desktop, without opening any software and start hitting refresh, the cpu will be at 99%.

One does not need the BAT file ("ClipAngelPortable.bat") to start ClipAngel in portable mode, just run the EXE with this parameter- "ClipAngel.exe /p".

The name of the program is not Clip Angel but ClipAngel as it can be seen in program's main window and in "About" window.

Program's icon does not imply an angel but an alien.

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

My experience with support was great, I sent in a question via e-mail and received an answer in under 15 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend it especially to anyone who likes working with Management Studio.

Just a clarification, this doesn't work "directly" with Oracle, MySQL or other DB, it requires an ODBC connection set up. If it worked "directly" with those it would connect to Oracle via TNSNames on (default) port tcp/1521 and for MySQL tcp/3306. It does neither.

Such garbage software. The author is about the biggest asshole I have ever met in the development world. Seriously, if you think this is an opinion go read the issues forum. as ransom for portable mode, he's demanding people give him money. You really can't make this shit up.

I gave qbittorrent an honest try. I can't get magnet links to associate with the portable version anymore. I even tried running it in Sandboxie and manually installing a reg entry.

This app should be reported and removed from PF as it constantly spreads its files all over my computer after magnet links are associated.
IT. IS. NOT. PORTABLE. and based on what the way the dev is screaming at its users, it's becoming donation-ware.

This is currently my go-to program. I tend to add it to the "send to" menu on machines I'm currently using and it works beautifully to check one or more files. Also, the ability to insert the hash directly into the file name makes so much sense. Just drag-and-drop it into the window and instantly know if there's a problem. Great solution to the multi-step check.

This program is critically important when you have a mass of vaguely connected topics. Seeing them all grouped nicely into a structure does a very useful magic trick, simplifying and clarifying how you think about almost any topic.

A small point...
The download is now 'pure' Windows.
Other OS files are not present.
Perhaps mod the initial blurb

Talk about BLOATED software indeed: 471MB ! fer chrissake (excuse my french)...:-(

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

IanFromBarrie on 2017-01-27 22:54

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works

@IanFromBarrie

Thanks for that info. I was wondering why it wasn't working with XP. Renaming todolist.exe.xp.manifest to todolist.exe.manifest worked.

NetworkTrafficView v2.06

Eyes open wide as can be, can't seem to spot the new "IPNetInfo - Source IP" option displayed anywhere...;-(

Anyone else with a better eyesight cares double-checking ?

__philippe on 2017-04-26 21:41

Eyes open wide, but looking the wrong direction...:-(

The new option is indeed present and working as it should, available NOT under the likely "Option" tab,
but rather from two alternate locations :

• under the "File" tab
• in the context menu

Apologies for this unwarranted agitation.
