Instead of the current large portable apps menu,
I would prefer a permanent, single column of only the icons of the programs i have, perhaps optionally with the name of the program showing when doing a mouse-over, over the icons.

a single column, just the width of the icons currently, stuck to the right or left of my desktopspace, and making it always-on-top over everything, would be great!

thanks for a great program!
its easier to use than the start menu! Smile

Win9x/2K

Do you mean using a Win9x/2K style menu?

2 options

The only two apps off the top of my head that provide similar functionality to what your describing are Appetizer and RocketDock Portable. Both will provide dock with icons of apps of your choice. You can make RocketDock always on top, or appear when the mouse hits the top (or sides) of the screen. You can also change how large or small the icons are, and the name of the apps or shortcuts show when you hover over the icons. Appetizer is similar, to it, but you can move it to anywhere you want on the screen.

this is a feature request for modifying the portable apps platform, i dont want to try another program, i want portable apps to be better.

what i want is a menu of programs consisting of only icons, no text and no other buttons like documents music ... help search etcetera. I only need the icons and i would like that a single row of my program icons came up when i take the cursor to the left edge of the screen.

like this:

This is unlikely to be added any time soon.

This is unlikely to be added any time soon, since there are a lot of pending improvements that are way ahead of this and have been heavily requested - and PA.c doesn't subscribe to the rapid release philosophy.
So, if you want anything even resembling this functionality in the foreseeable future, your best bet is to add Appetizer or Cylog Toolbox.

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

i just figured out that this

i just figured out that this feature is ALREADY BUILT IN! Smile

all you have to do is move the portable apps window to the far right, and let only the icons be visible!

problem solved and it is exactly as i wanted.. Smile
