Re: Pixopedia 2014 Paint & Edit App

Added to the database: https://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=3048 I am in the process of feeding my kid with various painting software for his pursuit of digital art. This one turns out to have a much steeper learning curve than he can handle. However, I get the sense that this is a really powerful t...

Re: 3D Youtube Downloader

I see. Thanks for the input. I knew forum search required a minimum of 3 characters in a word for the query to go through, but was not expecting that limitation to silently void a multi word search in the database. I know this is an old topic, but I modified the DB config to reduce the minimum sear...

Re: Combine batch of images into a PDF

Just tried WinScan2PDF. Quick and easy, works just as expected. What's not to like?

Thanks to Cornflower for the tip!

Re: Combine batch of images into a PDF

webfork , you already had the solution: FSViewer can not only convert every image to single PDF, but a whole bunch of images into one single PDF. Go to "create" > "multipage builder" Interesting: when saving a single image as PDF, the "options" button is greyed out, but if you use the multipage bui...

Re: Registry Finder

Updated the description with an edited version of the author's description.

I think this is a nice registry tool and our original short description didn't do it justice!

Re: Portable VirtualBox [VB launcher utility]

I'm on Windows 7 x54 SP1 and apart from the embedded Windows Defender -- which is very lenient with my frequent testing of software, by the way -- I haven't run a resident anti-virus in years (at least since 2013 ...). It's an open secret that antivirus software is hugely overrated but a great mone...

Re: Portable devices to fight planed obsolescence

I didn't know used Thinkpads are so expensive over there. Just checked. I can get a T460s for about ~S$470, half the price you quoted. Maybe the dynamics are different there. Here, business laptops are typically offloaded every 2 or 3 years when the warranty runs out. Which is fantastic if you know ...

Re: Recommended standard Windows/Office tweaks

Well, I don't want to appear competitive here, but I was introduced to the spreadsheet via VisiCalc on the Apple ][ :D I was still a teenage then, so I didn't really appreciate the significance of the concept. Only used it as a glorified calculator! Same with Lotus 1-2-3 when I moved to the PC. I mu...

Re: Recommended standard Windows/Office tweaks

I think the article should be re-titled "Spreadsheet never dies".

Replace "Excel" with "Spreadsheet", and the entire article pretty much still stands.

The spreadsheet has always been in my arsenal of tools, but I have long left Excel for Google Sheet and LibreOffice Calc for various reasons.

Re: Portable devices to fight planed obsolescence

Nice! For laptops though, there's usually quite a bit of life left in "old" business laptops that can be purchased on the cheap from eBay. I bought a Thinkpad T450 for $250 recently and replaced the battery with a brand new genuine extended battery for $120. Also did some tinkering with the storage,...

Re: Crow Translate (online language utility)

Added to the database: https://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=3046 I was pleasantly surprised by how well it worked, to be honest.

Re: Iconize - Minimize Apps To The System Tray

Just discovered Iconize is private, so I have upvoted and make it public again: https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1176 Also, I made a local copy of nolajovol's 2.0.0.5 version for download.

Re: Ultimate++ - application development framework

This looks really interesting. If I ever start another GUI project, I will test this out.

Cross-platform UI frameworks are a real drag for simple projects. I guess that's why people are turning to Electron/JS with all its pitfalls.

Re: Avidemux

Strange.. any idea why it's still 2.7.6 on the official website?

http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/download.html

Even the nightlies are only up to 2.7.7.
