I decided to add a couple features to the PortableAppsMenu because I wanted those features and they're very easy to implement and thought I'd share it with the rest of you.
added the ability to hide files and give them display names
to add a display name:
1. make a corresponding text file with a '.displayname' extentsion
-the filename itself is the .exe name plus the extentsion .displayname
-myprogram.exe's displayname is stored in the file myprogram.displayname
e.g. if I want to give a display name to myprogram.exe I just make a text file called
myprogram.displayname and make the first line the text I want displayed in the menu.
to hide a file:
1. make a file with the exe's name minus the .exe with the extentsion '.hide' that's it.
myprogram.exe will be hidden if a file named myprogram.hide exists.
