Right, faced that nuisance in the past, too. Luckily, a custom bios update dealt with it. 8)

Scancode Map (keyboard re-mapper)

Let me start with a stern WARNING about this program: be very, VERY careful with what you change with Scancode Map -- applying changes requires a reboot and I managed to lock myself out of Windows by changing a single key!

Zhornsoftware Caffeine (stayawake utility)

Caffeine (https://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=266) is one of the oldest yet still very popular TPFC database entries but has no official forum topic and is barely mentioned here in the forums (apart from indirectly at https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=25607#p25607) so this po...

Vagrant (virtualization manager)

This is a little out of my depth but, with all the recent talk of virtualization, I think Vagrant is an avenue of exploration we should at least point out here at TPFC. Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments. @ https://github.com/hashicorp/vagrant/ Vagrant is a tool...

Re: DOSBox [legacy OS emulator]

Very old topic update: DOSBox last release was v0.74-3, from 2019-06-26 (see announcement at https://www.dosbox.com/). Ideally, 0.75 should have been released by now, but some bugs took a lot longer than expected. @ https://www.dosbox.com/ Apparently development is still going, as a patch for Linux ...

Re: digiKam - cross-platform photo management

Topic update: Digikam v7.2.0 released 2021-03-22 {changelog at https://www.digikam.org/documentation/changelog/).

To the best of my knowledge and despite past pledges, still no straightforward info on portability.

Delta Chat desktop (IMAP based IM)

There is no topic about Delta Chat in TPFC forums, even though it claims (experimental) portability. Delta Chat is multi-platform (Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android and iOS) and FLOSS. Regarding portability, although the single executable desktop version did save files to a ' DeltaChatData ' sub-folder...
