Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Version 1.55 is rejected but the latest version of NFOPad has a setting to store the settings to an INI file.

Lightweight NFO viewer and text editor.


No install needed, just unpack the rar:

Info and screens:

By default NFOPad stores the program settings to the registry, change this in Options. You can also disable the shell features there.

Although it has previously been rejected (see ... f=2&t=3685), I just wanted to vouch for NFOPad too -- which is portable in the present version: IMHO, the best .nfo file viewer out there -- after the demise of DAMN NFO Viewer.

Cheers, 8)

P.S.: Shame on me, I did have a few posts here, but my account was suspended for lack of recent activity... :oops:

Could someone enlighten me, please?! What is a .nfo file useful for? What can it do that .txt and .doc can't? I've never seen a .nfo file outside a downloaded torrent folder (and used there to describe the properties of downloaded file, be it a movie, a linux distro or other).

I don't use a specialty NFO viewer because NotePad or any other text editor can view them fine.
is it stealth? ;)

Before I bug NFOPad developer about it, I'd like to check with anyone who reads this if they're getting any similar error while trying to auto-paste dates (CTRL+D) with the latest version (v1.73)?
