There have been a few requests over the years to have the PortableApps.com Platform scan additional paths for apps. The rationale is usually that users want to keep non-PAF apps separate from PAF apps or apps that are updated automatically by the platform separate from those that are not. I'm planning on implementing this within a future release of the PortableApps.com Platform and wanted to layout the setup and see if there are any comments or suggestions.

Please report any bugs you find with the platform here. There is a separate forum thread for localization discussion and another for apps that need an update. Bug reports made in comments will be deleted once added to this categorized list. Duplicate reports will be removed. Fixed bugs are listed in the PortableApps.com Platform Change-log.
Thank you for your help.
Is it possible to change the default "X:\Documents" to another location? The last discussion I have seen is from 2006 (https://portableapps.com/node/625). I have not found an .ini that I could edit.
Is anyone else finding that it takes up to a minute for the menu to load since updating from 18.0.1 to 19.0 under Win 7 Pro SP1 (x64)?
It will be much useful if an app can be called by hot-key press. For example running Notepad++ from combination of some chosen hot key.
The functionality can be activated by adding some line to the 'appinfo.ini'
Thanks for the hard work on maintaining this app collections
While on the support page (https://portableapps.com/support/platform) there is a section which explains that the location of the PortableApps.com Menu is remembered I couldn't find how to reset its location.
How could one reset the location of the menu?
Where is the file the information is saved?
I had a PortableApps USB go bad the other day so I got an extra USB and put my backup from two weeks ago on there. Now I hit the PortableApps Start icon, the menu comes up like it should but the rest of my desktop icons disappears. It only happens on my PortableApps USB and none of the others.
It's screwing with Windows explorer.exe somehow. I ran the built-in repair tool on Windowsand it didn't find any errors.
Is the USB corrupt?
Is there something wrong explorer.exe?
Is there something wrong with my icon database?
I has been a few weeks since I could properly update my portable apps with the Updater.
The downloads the connection speed slowly goes down and eventually the connection drops, an error message is displayed and to whole process fails.
Some screenshots of the problem.
