I used Ethervane ActiveHotkeys (http://www.tranglos.com/activehotkeys/)
but this application does not work correctly on 64-bit versions of Windows.

I'm really surprised - it works even for replacing txt notepad by another application! Well done, it seems to be really useful!

Although it is extra useful, be extra careful with it or you might screw your system -- check, check, check, & recheck whatever you do.

I stumbled upon this app. accidentally when trying to replace my system icon for .reg files. I used to use IconPhile, but it's process is hidden. Sometimes it's hard to undo.

With this.. im able to manually replace system icons. :)
And it's portable/stealth!

DevManView is an alternative to the standard Windows Device Manager. It displays all devices and their properties in a flat table, instead of a hierarchical treeview.

Defender does not like 4.5 either. Tried 32 and 64 bit, neither will run. Standing with 4.3 64-bit.

webfork on 2019-04-26 21:13

@PAFuser - I'd recommend running it past VirusTotal rather than relying on Defender. It's very likely a false positive.

MoisheP on 2020-02-05 19:40

Finally, v. 4.8 can be installed on Windows without being aborted by Defender and it is no longer flagged by VirusTotalcom engines. The last two versions had been unusable for those reasons.

Very useful program, providing the best results of any dir2html type of app I've ever used. fyi: also WINE compatible under Linux. Have had no issues reading/writing to externally attached FAT32/NTFS drives under Linux as well as reading/writing to the system's EXT4-formatted drives.

Pax on 2019-04-27 15:53

Update: I installed the latest version (2.0) a few days ago: had previously been working with v1.94 (on Linux and previously on Win7). Was able to test both versions on Windows 10 only (Oct/2018 update) - my Linux laptop is being replaced.

Turns out both versions need .NET Framework. When running v2.0, it didn't notify me that .NET was missing. When I tried to access a drive, it stalled - I 'forced closed' the app.

Running v1.94 will notify you of missing .NET Framework and correctly download and install it. After I did this, v2.0 ran without problems.

On the same directory, v2.0 created a 54mb html file and was noticeably slower generating it. My browsers (Firefox and Brave) took a long while to parse and display. Built-in search was also very slow.

v1.94 (on the same directory), created a 1mb file. Much smaller. Parsed instantly on FF and Brave. Search/Filter was snappy.

Maybe this is an isolated incident. I'm on Windows (temporarily) for the first time in a few years: went through updates, tried to secure for privacy, installed a few programs, etc...

Bottom line: If v2.0 isn't working well for you, v1.94 works great.

Peter202 on 2019-04-04 08:38

I don't think it is portable. I just reinstalled Windows 7 and after launching Process Explorer i found that all settings are lost.

Midas on 2019-04-05 07:21

@Peter202: as noted above, Process Explorer saves settings to the Windows registry so is in fact not conventionally portable. It has been allowed, though, due to its nature and the trivial settings kept. If you want complete portability, check the Portable Apps package, also linked in the entry.

WinContig v2.4.0.3

billon on 27 Apr 2020
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 27 Apr 2020
  • Suggested by MarcoNovaro

WinContig is an easy-to-use file defragmentation program that allows defrag of parts of the drive. This is useful for squeezing extra performance out of important or frequently used files or programs without wasting time and energy cleaning up the rest of the drive.

Note that this is recommended only on magnetic disks. Flash-based drives (SSDs and thumb drives) don't benefit from defragmentation and such maintenance tools can reduce the life of the drive.

The program engine is based on the standard Microsoft defragmentation API and allows you to group files into profiles, accepting a number of available command-line switches for additional control.

OK, I ran a newer version on my XP SP3 system and it worked just fine. Thanks for a nice easy defrag program with some nice display information and command line features. I actually like how the pre-version 1 versions looked better (less cluttered), but at least this works and doesn't crash and is portable and simple.

@thepiney: Same here. I've used magnet links no problem. The only time I've had errors is when the program loses access to the downloaded torrent files while it's still trying to share them (if you deleted or moved the downloaded files without deleting the torrent file). I moved from uTorrent because they started adding advertising, but there are settings tweaks to remove it.

Qbittorrent does not support Windows XP and Vista anymore from v.4.2.0, though 'portableapps' seems not aware of that.

@I am Baas
The link didn't work some hours ago, that's why I asked.

@1C3M4N: Link seems to work fine now ;)

BleachBit seems to leave traces in the last version (3.2) - after first run I found the folder ".dbus-keyrings" in the root of C:\USERS\user\
Would be interesting to put this folder to the user defined cleaners - Bleachbit then would clean up itsself...

RapidCRC Unicode v0.3.33 Updated

webfork on 31 May 2020
  • 867KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Apr 2020
  • Suggested by Userfriendly

RapidCRC Unicode is a hashing program capable of checking and verifying the integrity of files, folders, or whole drives. The program includes process priority, ability to pause/resume analysis, job queuing, easily copy hashes to the clipboard and multi-threaded checks. If using checksum files (e.g. .sfv or .md5) for future verification, options include the ability to generate for every analyzed file, directory, or a single checksum with all hash data.

Includes direct support for CRC hashing in the filename (common for anime releases) for example: "MyFile [45DEF3A0].avi") Other algorithms range from fast to secure, including SFV(CRC32), MD5, ED2K, SHA-1/256/512 and Blake2sp.

Based on the original RapidCRC but updated with extended Unicode support.

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.

shoover on 2016-02-21 09:17

I think there is something wrong with the "CRC into Filename" function. This occurs with files that lack a file extension.

Lintalist v1.9.13

lintalist on 13 Apr 2020
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 13 Apr 2020
  • Suggested by lintalist

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.

I agree with TP109 that this program just works. Currently I have close to a thousand snippets that average 25 lines and the program still runs smoothly.

hamasaki on 2020-04-11 21:41

Doesn't work unless I'm missing something. Change any setting, restart and it crashes.

hamasaki on 2020-04-12 11:12

As a follow up, I contacted the developer and this has been fixed.

Good simple program that can bulk shift time + or - for video files for example that has been taken in a different timezone without changing the camera time before the shots.

I have no idea why the "GUI version without installer" has the .man extension, but it's only a simple archive and can be extracted with 7zip or UniversalExtractor. So "How to extract" field is still displaying correct information.
