I'm new to PortableApps - I've been using it for less than two weeks - and, after browsing/searching the forums, I didn't find the answer to my "problem".
I want to remove the Music, Pictures and Videos icons from the PortableApps menu.
I've deleted these folders from the Documents folder and PortableApps didn't recreated them after restarting, but the icons remain in the PortableApps menu. If I choose one of these icons, PortableApps does nothing.
There is just one reason why I don't like these folders - I don't organize my documents in this "dictatorship" way. I say "dictatorship" because I find it annoying that some one tells me how to organize my files. These "dictatorship" is worse on every OS that put a Documents folder at the same level as a Music, Pictures and Videos folders - as far as I know, Windows 7, MacOS X and GNU+Linux with desktop managers, all force these folders on users. To me, the photos I've made are as important as other documents that I've written, e.g., my (La)TeX, Maxima, Octave, C and Lisp/Scheme files. Moreover, if I choose the Pictures folder to store my photos, should I use this folder to store Maxima generated pictures that I use on my classes, PhD thesis or articles?
I've been using Unix since 1986 and back then I had a clean home directory to organize my files the way I want - no one "forced" me to use some directories. Well, the home directory still exists but it is now cluttered with unwanted trash such as these directories.
