WinMend File Copy at version 2.3.0.0 but I think that the extraction procedure is a bit different- in the "{app}" folder there are two DLLs which are the same- "drag,1.dll" and "drag,2.dll"- one of them should be renamed to "drag.dll" and the other should be deleted. Optionally- "checkupdate.exe" and "LiveUpdate.exe" also can be deleted.

File version (FileCopy.exe)- 2.3.0.0.
Title bar & About Us also show WinMend File Copy 2.3.0.0.
To make WinMend File Copy work after extraction rename "drag,1.dll" to "drag.dll" and delete "drag,2.dll", then run "FileCopy.exe".

I use SeaFox as well, but I just use the Default theme.

Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey doesn't really make much of a difference in my layout, except a few icon changes.

Speaking of icons, use the Classic Toolbar Buttons addon to change some of the default icons. It doesn't change the Bookmark, RSS or Tab Throbber icons though.

Lintalist is a context sensitive text-expander with abbreviations, shortcuts, plugins, scripts and search. It allows you to store and (incrementally) search and edit texts in bundles and paste a selected text in your active program. The text can be interactive, for example you can automatically insert the current time and date, ask for (basic) user input or make a selection from a list etc and finally it can also run a script. You can use keyboard shortcuts or abbreviations to paste the text (or run the script) without opening the search window. You can also use formatted text (html, markdown and rtf) and images. A 64-bit version is also available.

@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.

LibreOffice Portable v7.0.1 Updated

  • 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. 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.

Other available portable versions:

  • Still - more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities
  • Legacy - for WinXP/Vista users (unsupported)

The program is cross platform with versions available for Mac, Linux/BSD (comes default with most distros) and supports a variety of extensions.

You'll see four ZIPs inside;
In 2.zip - stickies.exe, in 4.zip - stickies.chm, in 6.zip - stickies8.ssk, which should be in "skins" folder, and in 8.zip - mdb2db.exe, which seems converts data DB to the new format and only need if you upgrade from the previous version.

CintaNotes is a tag-based, text-only personal notes manager for collecting bits and pieces of information such as thoughts and ideas, article excerpts, quotes, research etc. A global hot key (by default Ctrl-F12) clips pieces of text from other applications such as web browsers or any local program. The window title becomes title/subject of the note and the highlighted text selected becomes the body.

The program is useful to quickly take down and tag any piece of useful text that you come across and quickly organize by date, keywords, title, link and note size. A search tool searches the entire database with search keyword highlighting.

Note: Some features limited to a "pro" version include tabbed sections, pasting notes into other apps, hierarchical tags and multiple notebooks.

Found a solution !
Dowmoad 12noon Dispay Changer (free -> google): very nice prgram, helps me a lot with old programs on my new large screen !
Install. Go to folder where installed, make a shortcut from the cd.exe folder.
Rightclick on shortcut, open properties
Richtclick IcoFX.exe, open properties, highlight target command line, copy (Ctrl + c)
Go to THE END of the same line (target) in the IconFX properties, paste (Ctrl + v); leave a space between both (there are quotation marks at the beinning and at the end of both)
Go to the space and type (without quotation marks, but leaving again a space before, in between and at the end) "-width=1152 -height=864" (or any other screen size COMPATIBLE with your screen, e.g. 1600x 900 1027x768, etc; see help of dc to find out which screen sizes are compatible).
Close properties of both.
Change the name and icon of dc.exe to IcoFX.
That's it !
(When you close IcoFX, the screen will automatically return to its initial size, so the change onlw affcts this program !)

Specular on 2015-01-06 18:35

The busy XP screenshot doesn't do the app justice. Worthwhile app for icon creation and extraction. Main limitation of this version is the lack of 512px+ size support, which OSX and now Windows 10 support.

It has big issue. All the files to rename must be in the same folder. I could not even apply rename to only some files inside the folder.

Good thing is it supports regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind. But again does not support plus symbol (+) inside lookbehind.

Listary v5.00.2843

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.

Hi, I am a long time user of theWord (esword before that), and I also use MySword for Android apps. I would just like to say that there is a USB form of installation, and that can be done into a folder on any Windows computer. I have probably 25-30 different installations of theWord like this. I do development of modules for theWord, so I have different setups like this. This is TRULY "portable"!

Secondly I would like to say that some of the other portable software that I have used before has a lot of "down sides" to it. Most notably is that as Windows goes through generation of generation of operating systems, Windows itself has no loyalty to its own requirements and past operating systems. I once had all my IRS accounting in files in a portable program called Lucid. With time, I finally went back to look up something to find that the portable version of the software no longer works under recent Windows. AAAAAAH! All my records locked away forever!

theWord is being actively updated for each modern version of the Windows operating system.

On another note, some 10 years ago I got a cheap Toshiba laptop (I think I paid $20 for it), and it had a 286 processor on it. Okay, so it was a waste of time. No ports to speak of except a "modern" USB (at its birth I guess that may be true). It had like 640K of Ram, and something like 500MB of hard disk space. (I probably got ripped off really for $20).

But my point here is that I decided to put theWord portable to the test. I got a 4GB USB, yes it would read and write to it. Then I installed theWord portable version on it, and then copied bunches of modules (files in the format theWord uses) onto it. The I cranked it up. To my surpise, theWord worked flawlessly under those primitive conditions. The only real problem was doing searches (which the RAM restriction was the problem, not theWord). But with time, theWord worked perfectly on it.

If you want to know how robust this program is, try it on an old junker PC, and you will be surprised!

Please visit www.theWordbooks.com to download premium modules. ("30%OFF" code for 30% off until Dec 26, 2016).

Morten on 2007-03-22 02:11

It doesn't actually help how much better the other product is as this is a "freeware" listing. The name "The Portable Freeware Collection" does not indicate the use of payware does it?

somejerk on 2018-11-27 19:48

RtvReco doesn't even exist anymore. gbj and Shodan are probably spammers who were trying to push the software.

PTFB does exactly what I need; it pushes the freakin button. It's great for one off tasks that have an unexpected error interruption.

When I need something more complex (like automating installers), I use AutoIt, which is also freeware.

Thought I'd ask: does anyone know how URL Monit@r compares to Xenu Link Sleuth ATM? (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=112)

tactictoe on 2016-03-12 02:38

Hi Midas. To answer your question. The comparison is not really a good idea. These softwares have two different goals in mind with a common task to achieve their respective goal. Xenu Link Sleuth ATM crawl a site given a URL and perform a complete site URL check with complete report on demand. And it does it very well. URL Monit@r on the other hand does also a verification of URL but its goal is bookmark managing whatever come has URL captured by the clipboard and it does its task very well. Verification of URL here is on a case per case or thru a given list or complete URL list via the integrated browser (Xenu can also import a list of URL). Both program check URL but for two different goals as I said before. However you can check evolution of URL Monit@r here http://www.geocities.ws/tactictoe/URLMonitor_Progress.html. It will include functionality of Xenu Link Sleuth ATM without challenging this excellent software or trying to superseed this software neither copycat the work of this excellent software. The story of URL Monit@r is not finished. It stills evolves. Anyway thank you for asking, it needed to be asked as some people might be confused. So if you need a temporary bookmark manager for long internet session research URL Monit@r is your software, on the other hand if you need to verify a whole website with report Xenu Link Sleuth ATM is your software. Please also note Xenu Link Sleuth ATM is very light in size where URL Monit@ar is more hungry in mass storage size because its modern icon driven needs for functionality. I could have go all the way with menu and speedbutton with little size glyph to reduce the size to 1Mb but it would have reduce the appeals of the software dramatically.

Midas on 2016-03-12 11:36

Thanks for answering, tactictoe. My curiosity was purely academic, issuing from considering the opportunity of enhancing this entry with mention of alternatives, as is customary here at TPFC. As the author of URL Monit@r, you'll have to concede the possibility of bias in your appraisal. :)

As the last comment is nearly four years old, I think it's needless to mention that SyMenu actually supports Windows 10. In my case the application even reached the "autostart-status", which is really a coronation for an app. Furthermore, since eight months I am contributing to the large Program Suite as SPS-Publisher. During this time I made the experience of a respectful athmosphere under the people behind SyMenu, which I could talk to so far. Except the developer of course, keep away from this crazy guy...btw hello Gian my friend and greetings to Italy ;-) So, all-in-all in my personal opinion this application is really worth a try and I'm sure it even get's better from day to day!

The version I downloaded "AM-Notebook 5.0.1" dated "08-Apr-2008" allows for the installation of the lite version on a USB-Stick ...nice app but I'll stick with TreeDBNotes Pro (http://www.mytreedb.com/) since I already paid for it ...AM-Note need the spell-checker loaded on the local machine ..which isn't cool with me (-;

I've been using version 4.13 for awhile. Love the program. It got even better w/ v5.01. Added Contacts, Calendar, and ToDo list to the notes. Don't need to Extract as it have an option to install portably on a thumbdrive (although no options to choose a folder).

AM is good, but others you might want to try are Keynote and Totaltext. Both have more features, are portable, and freeware.

I reckon there should be a mention somewhere in the entry's description that Atom is based on (in fact, is like the ur-deployment of) the Electron framework [https:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron_(software_framework)! Broken URL, please copy excluding the exclamation, paste and amend].
