If you want small startup time, good one is CudaText, starts fast, less exe size.

RJ Text Editor isn`t portable:
AppData\Roaming\RJ TextEd\Scripts\*

Pendrive on 2022-02-12 05:12

This program seems to have a huge file-size for what it is. Is it an electron-based program and, if so, should that not be noted here?

...sorry, my previous comment only applies to the stable version 1.4.7 - changing "HKCU\Software\QtProject.." to "HKCU\Software\Trolltech.." in "ScribusPortable.ini" does it.
The test version (1.5.4) is stealth out of the box.

Scribus 1.5.8 released See
" The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.8. Like previous releases, work on version 1.5.8 focused mostly on bugfixes and code optimizations, the latter of which are expected to lead to reliability and speed improvements. We have also begun to prepare Scribus for using Qt6, which will make our work easier for future releases. "

I am not sure this release i portable,since itis not a "paf" file.

FileOptimizer v16.50 Updated

Special on 9 Jan 2024
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Jan 2024
  • 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 list of the 400+ 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. Many images here on TPFC including our logo have been compressed using FileOptimizer.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU AGPL
How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z.exe package and launch. When prompted, select a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

At startup, the program will optionally show ads to support program development. These can be disabled at any time.

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder
  • Delete unnecessary language files

That's not portable. I can only get a setup file installing in C: drive.

kilouiski on 2019-09-20 12:09

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

webfork on 2019-10-06 22:40

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

webfork: Because it's their preferred portable build. Not everyone will need the full package. The lite / portable build should be sufficient for people building a website for testing locally and on the go.

olliebean on 2018-10-19 14:51

Just for clarification, is the full version portable? Because the only version labelled "portable" at the download link appears to be the lite version, without FTP or Mail.

Pax on 2019-05-17 03:49

Note: The description should replace Oracle's MySQL with the community-based fork: MariaDB.

Just to note that the direct download links point to version 4.60. The home website ( has the link to version 4.62 Irfanview and the plugins. Note that there is no 32-bit Irfanview in zip format, but I verified that uniextract works.

Note: New features in this version, especially if you use the Irfanview PlugIn

Andrew Lee on 2022-12-11 05:23

@Cornflower: Seems like the 32-bit ZIP is also available now. I have updated both download links.

Cornflower on 2023-12-10 08:43

Also note that virtually every new release updates some plugins, and version 4.65 is no exception. Most users may want to go to and download the 32- or 64-bit package, and dump them into the Irfanview Plugins subdirectory.

On most cnet download pages, if you scroll to the bottom of the page, there will be a direct download link for the software, avoiding the bundled cnet installer: That being said, I still prefer other download sources instead of cnet.
