I really like what you guys are doing, but one thing really frustrates me about the menu. Because of that fact that it automatically detects and lists all program exe's in the program folders it lists a number of exe's that should not be listed. Could it be possible to include into the menu's options the ability to 'permanently' remove unwanted exe's from the list? I think this kind of update is essential in order to tidy the whole thing up.
Also, a suggestion, would it be possible to group certain programs into custom folders? Such of a folder containing office software, another containing media software, another containing file management software etc. Could a custom folder option be included?
Both of these features have been requested numerous times. Right now they're a beta of the 'PortableApps.com Platform', but it only filters uninstall.exe's. There's a Mod of the PortableApps Menu called the PAM Mod R3X, which features category support and hiding application which may hold you off until the official menu supports these features. But beware the PAM Mod is not at all supported by PortableApps.com.
Ok, automatic filtering sounds ok, but I was really talking about manual selection. With the WindowsXP start menu you can right click on a program and remove it from the list, that's sort of what I was talking about.
The other thing I forgot to mention is about being able to actually rename program files to suit yourself.
You can rename in the PAM Mod as well, search the forums and you'll find it.
