Adding apps to the platform

I added a couple of apps to my drive (Chrome and Filezilla) and then ran into trouble updating them (well Chrome anyway, I haven't tried with the other one.)

So I read up a bit and it seemed to me that if I had the PortableApps platform installed, I could update the apps through that.

So I installed the PortableApps platform, and now I can't figure out to add the existing two apps to the Menu of the platform... I don't want to do a clean install as I've customised the browser extensively with plugins etc...

Thanks for any help.

Move them to X:\PortableApps, where Secret is the drive where you've installed the Platform. You'll end up with X:\PortableApps\GoogleChromePortable and X:\PortableApps\FilezillaPortable.

Manage Apps

Manage Apps, check for updates in the PA.c Platform.

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