Is there any way on how to put folder shortcuts in the portable apps menu?
Check out my post
It explains how to use the portable apps directory structure and the appinfo.ini to do exactly that.
Also, my home page has this packaged to install like a paf.exe.(Folderz) You'll still need to edit the appinfo.ini to point to the folders you want.
I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.
Your post method was unsuccessful
Here is the INI file that i made:
The shortcuts appear but when i click them nothing happens
You need to manually create the subfolders in the Documents folder.
If the folder doesn't exist, the shortcuts won't work.
BTW, I just tried it with the ini file you created, and it worked fine.
yep the folders are all there
What version of PAM are you using?
Try editing the ini to just point to the Documents folder:
Does it take you to the PortableApps Documents?
Does the menu has to be the latest one?

It works in 1.6 and all the 2.0 betas.
I've also used this in Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 7.
It's just simply exploiting the Start path in appinfo.ini and its use of relative paths.
Follow the Homepage link next to my name, and you can download a preconfigured version called Folderz MiniApp. You install it using the Install a New App function of the menu. It will create shortcuts to subfolders of Documents, and give them colored folder icons to boot.
You will still need to create the target folders.
ALSO: These shortcuts are intended to link to the Portable Apps Platform Documents folder, not to the Windows Documents folder.
Your Method worked perfectly, i changed the INI back to my own and it worked!
Thanks for your help!
