Re: Recommended standard Windows/Office tweaks

Great post, webfork!

It should be noted that Windows Sandbox requires the Pro Edition. Those with Windows Home will not be able to use it.

Re: Telegram - cross platform, secure chat

Just a FYI to make sure you login every once in awhile to prevent Telegram from deleting your account and having to register a new account all over again. I didn't know that Telegram removes inactive accounts. I believe the default inactive period is six months, but you can change this to a maximum ...

Re: jPortable

Had to run Java Portable from a command prompt, so was trying to figure out the easiest way to do this.

Found out you can use PA's Command Prompt Portable and that will auto-detect jPortable, so you can use that if you need to pass any command-line arguments to a .jar file or what have you.

Re: PDF-XChange Viewer

I wanted to try the OCR addon for PDF-Xchange Viewer from portableapps.com since the one from the official website doesn't seem to work properly (or maybe something has changed that needs to be documented). However, the link for the OCR addon on portableapps.com is dead. @JohnTHaller - Can you fix t...

Re: qBittorrent

I've updated the listing to add a note about removing qbittorrent.pdb. This is a ~100MB file that is part of the installer and is only used for crash reporting, so it is safe to be deleted.

I've also updated the filesize to use the 64-bit version.

Re: PeaExtractor - simple file decompression

If you compare the PeaExtractor and PeaZip/res/ directories, they use almost the same, identical file structure. You can manually copy over the PeaZip files (except the /lang/ and /lang-wincontext/ directories), but that's just more work than I'd like to do. That's why I'm using symlinks, but you're...

Re: What hardware are you using?

I picked up an Intel Compute stick a couple of weeks ago - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Compute_Stick. Got a good deal on it.

Mostly going to use it for media consumption, but it's good to have a truly portable Windows 10 set up :lol:

Re: youtube-dl - multi-site media/video downloader

XDA doesn't mention the cipher decryption removal that led to youtube-dl being reinstated. Here's the portion of the code that was removed: https://github.com/animelover1984/youtube-dl/commit/0851123c1909558268e8e237214d9c466cf5198d If the video is copyrighted, then youtube-dl will now show an erro...

youtube-dl is back on Github, but they had to remove a block of code regarding cipher decryption:

Re: PeaExtractor - simple file decompression

There hasn't been an update for PeaExtractor in three years. It's possible to just replace all the extractor libraries with the base PeaZip ones though. What I'm doing is symlinking all the directories from /PeaZip/res/ (except /lang/ and /lang-wincontext/), as well as pea.exe, directly into the Pea...

Re: PeaZip - archive/compression

Just a note that I changed the filesize to reflect the 64-bit version. Most users are on 64-bit PCs, not 32-bit.

Re: Alternatives to CCleaner

Bleachbit is a pretty good alternative. Just missing a registry cleaner, but use registry cleaners with a bit of caution. HDD cleaners are good if you want to reclaim some HDD space. Also good to have is Tree Size Free to have an idea of which folders and files are consuming a lot of space on your PC.
