I'm happy to notice the freeware version of PDF-XChange Editor still exists, according to https://www.tracker-software.com/product/downloads

"More than 70% of the features in PDF-XChange Editor do not require a license to use."

tomcat on 2022-04-16 04:49

The download button doesn’t seem to work atm. It takes me back to this page.
But you can get the tool from the website. Click on the DOWNLOAD arrow and select the portable version.

As a simple test, I tried what I consider the most useful function of filling in a form. But on trying to add text, I got the warning that it’s a paid feature and subsequently the watermark on the saved document. Consequently, I consider the free version next to useless.

There are free online PDF editors that will do such tasks without watermarks.

Cornflower on 2022-04-17 16:26

To fill out forms, simply use the typewriter tool in the freeware portable version.

Ennovy on 28 Nov 2022
  • 674KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 23 Nov 2022
  • Suggested by JohnW

DesktopOK contains a host of beneficial Windows interface tweaks. The program can save the current icon view by resolution and make it easy to swap between views, showing all saved view formats in a list. Other tools include basic screenshots, the ability to force-close programs, color tool, volume and more:

  • Interface tools include reducing clutter with a minimize-to-tray by right clicking on a window close button, mouse hiding and ability to hide desktop icons after a period of inactivity (click on the desktop to make them re-appear). You can even modify default icon spacing.

  • Window management tools include scrolling any window that your mouse hovers over (not just what's in focus) and alt+drag (for moving windows without having to hold your cursor over the top bar).

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. In this folder, create an empty text file and name it DesktopOK.ini. Launch DesktopOK.exe or DesktopOK_x64.exe.

Possible issues:
  • The program is in German: If not automatically set to the English, click the by clicking the flag in the lower left corner of the window for any of 24 world languages.
  • It saves to AppData: If you don't create an empty text file, it writes to %APPDATA%/DesktopOK/DesktopOK.ini. If you accidentally skipped this step, you can simply move this file over to the application folder.

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.

tormozit on 2017-05-14 16:46

@smaragdus
Yes, "ClipAngel" is more correct than "Clip Angel". Over time, I will try to replace "Clip Angel" with "ClipAngel" everywhere I can.

kiwichick888 on 2022-10-20 04:41

The sourceforge page says portability can also be achieved by the "presence of file PortableMode.txt".
