Rename Menu Items

Is it possible to change the program names that appear in the PortableApps Menu? I have installed Audiograbber. The .exe file is named audiograbber.exe but the menu shortcut says "Copies digital audio from Cd's. Freeware."

Not yet

But you will be able to later.

Incidentally, it's audiograbber's own text that says that. For some reason, AudioGrabber chose not to place anything in the ProductName field of their executable (PortableApps Menu checks this first). And they chose to place the text "Copies digital audio from Cd's. Freeware." in the Description field (which also shows up when you hover over the file in Explorer) instead of just the name of the app (PortableApps Menu checks this if the ProductName is blank).

Try hovering over the files for Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice.org, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, etc to see what I mean. They'll all tell you what the file is (the application's name) in the description field rather than what it does.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks John. Yes I knew it was the description. Good to know there will be option to rename in the future.
