App to simply display instructions?

Submitted by john errington on June 18, 2020 - 4:08am

Is there a way I can have an "app" that just displays a fixed text message?

So for example I've been using memtest, but Windows has a better memory test built in; so I'd like to replace the memtest app with an app that just shows the instructions for testing under windows.

Similarly for other apps, so I cant just fire up eg AkelPad to show a text file. (tried it AkelPad wont launch if i change its name)

how does the platform store its database?

I'm trying to manage my collection of about 150 portable apps
OK I know I can delete them in the platform or from the portable apps folder, but I'd like to sort them by category
And deleting one at a time in the platform would be tedious to say the least.
Does anyone know how the platform maintains its database?
