How to replace/fusion the Portable Apps Platform into Start Menu/Taskbar of Windows XP SP3?

Hi everyone! I have discovered this project just three days ago, but I found myself deeply interested into learning to left all my computers only with the fantastic Portable Apps Platform and their open source perspective.

Since I am not the only member of my family using the computers, I need some help to replace and/or fusion the Platform into my Windows XP SP3 systems... changing automatically the start menu and the task bar, for a 1 or 2 click operation for opening every app in the platform. Using the little mini button al the left every time I want to open an app is not much efficient IMHO.

This is my first post and, after reading the forum guidelines and searching for answers to my question, I ended up here. Greetings from Mexico!

Now, in spanish:

Hola a todos! soy de veracruz méxico y estoy muy interesado en integrarme al punto de vista portable tan interesante que descubrí recién apenas 3 días en esta web.

Estoy a punto de comenzar la transición a 90% de programas portables mediante esta plataforma, pero requiero que me indiquen si hay alguna manera de reemplazar o integrar la plataforma dentro del menú de inicio y la barra de tareas de windows. Uso Windows XP SP3 y no puedo cambiar de sistema porque toda mi familia lo usa y no quiero cambiarles todo el esquema de golpe.

Les agradezco mucho su atención y espero algún día poder contribuir con algo a este esfuerzo tan importante en cuanto a portatibilidad. Mi idea es dejar una de las computadoras con el Windows XP SP3 recién instalado y nunca instalarle programas a menos de que sea completamente inevitable. Saludos y gracias

Ctrl-Alt-Space

If you find that too much of a bore, just press Ctrl-Alt-Space on your keyboard.

PortableDesktop

You can try PortableDesktop. The latest release integrated your USB drive into the start menu, but the download link is not there right now, for some reason. Hold on to your thoughts a bit and we'll see if it gets fixed.
