Thoughts on the beta (Closed by MOD Markomlm) Please use the main tread!

If I may be the first to comment..

I installed this and am impressed by the scan option, as well as uninstall.

Also, the hide/unhide options are great.

The text size, transparency etc is cool.

It seems to work faster as well, with switching to front among other things as well I appreciate the drive checker; the ability to hide desktop icons is very interesting as well and makes me wonder what else this thing can (or should) do.

Anyway, best of luck to the developer.

oh

..and a few other things if I may:

since there is an option to hide desktop icons, maybe something neat could be including shortcuts from other appliations "outside" of the Portable Applications Menu or whatever it's called now.

I ask because were something like that to be implemented it would mean, at least for me that I could

a) Use PAP to open ANY program on my hard-drive with or without Admin priviledges

b) if I packed up my usb stick and went to another machine the shortcuts could simply disappear or work similar to how windows asks if you want to delete.

In any case I am most impressed that these functionalities have been embraced to this degree and would be most enamoured were they to be extended.

Also

As with the previous installer I am finding lately that often there are extended delays before I can access any of the functions of the menu, so much so now that if I pin PA.c to the start menu of Windows Vista, if I click on it (pinned shortcut) again while I am waiting it can almost crash explorer.

Just letting you know ahead of time that what I believe should happen is a right-click menu needs to be implemented so that immediate interaction can be had, as well as show/hide etc.

Thanks again and I hope this finds you all well

um yeh

What thread, which forum?

I think your comment is a little beyond the pale, as I've been told by the head developer not to "clutter" comment threads.

As this is such a slow moving forum I think you best be appreciative and not authoritave of what users' do.

The same thread where you

The same thread where you downloaded it (in the Beta-Testing forum)

"as I've been told by the head developer not to "clutter" comment threads."

Maybe that has something to do with triple posting?
