Hide EXE's from Portable Apps Menu


is there a way to hide exe files from portable apps menu? I have many exe files in the PortableApps Folder but only a few should be shown in the Menu.

Thanks for answers

Please search first

as this has been answered many times...
In the official Menu there is no possibility to hide exes bur there are mods where you can.

Hiding Menu Items

I have only done this with OpenOffice, but you can rename all the .exe files you don't want to .bak or just delete them. I only say this because you can choose new file or open in the menu and it will open the proper program for the file.

Here is the best I could find during search.

Rather than converting a .bat file to .exe as described in this link, you could use NSIS to make your own launcher. Don't ask me how, I just know it's possible.

Have an Awesome Day!
