Ideas for the Platform

I've been thinking about some improvements in's platform. Maybe there could be a tool to customize the menu, by adding a picture to the background, or by changing the color of the menu. And to organize the platform, there could be user-defined groups for apps! I don't know much about development, but if that could be possible, it would be a great improvement.

Welcome to PortableApps

Your first idea is called Themes. The menu has built-in support for themes, and comes with a selection of different colored themes.
There has been a ton of discussion about custom themes on these boards, but it's best for a new person to skip all the old stuff and jump straight to the theming on the latest menu:
Has links to MrElchbau's tutorials on this.

Your second idea, categories, is supposed to be included in the next release of the menu, coming soon, we hope.

Hope this helps!

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

drive security

Could you maybe integrate a password protection option(or drive security option)? I just have a drive with U3 on it and password protection I think is a good idea.

I was really wanting that but didn't know how to say it.

please search for the

please search for the intricate details on why this will not work.

The recap is that u3 does this by hardware. We cannot change hardware. I think there's also some partioning tricks involved, and we cannot do that either. At least not an winxp and below. Probably not even on vista.

Even shorter: not going to happen.

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world
