PortableAppsMenu Coloring

Submitted by wsm23 on March 29, 2007 - 4:18pm


Is it OK to recode the menu so that the "YOUR DIGITAL LIFE, ANYWHERE" tag is in a different color?

I want to offer it with my treklike theme. The pink works great on the red, just not on blue or really any other color. I don't know how to change the source code yet, but I am trying to learn. I have downloaded TurboExplorer and am going to take a shot at it. Maybe one of the really nice developers could even give me a hand.

PortableApps in french!

Submitted by jlaangry on March 29, 2007 - 1:51pm

Hi everyone!

I built a fully working version of PortableApps menu translated to french! (without using test.locale)
Does it interests anyone? I think I may start a new SourceForge projets... Am I wrong? Or are you interested in my translation?

Improvement List

I use PAM now for a few months and it's simply great. As a lot of people I have some suggestions, of which a few have already been mentioned a lot of times.

  • Disable Transparency
  • Stick Apps to the top of the list (like in windows xp start menu)
  • Group Apps
  • Favorites (Apps that should be launched when portable apps starts - could be an icon in the right list)
  • Rename Apps
  • autoupdate of PAM
  • Right Klick on tray symbol shows menu with "start of favorites", "hide/show","close"

Star Trek like theme

I have been playing around with a Star Trek like theme. I am not going to post the entire theme as I have used some borrowed elements. I also had to lighten up the "official" colors for usability.


Note: The preview contains copyrighted icons. The theme package has the default PAM icons.

Starting Portable Apps when Menu does not start

Submitted by Mor on March 25, 2007 - 12:59pm

I use the memory stick, becouse I do travel very often and have to use the public internet points and internet in hotels. These computers are most of the time set in a way that the Port.Apps.Menu does not start. With explorer.exe it is possible to go to the drive-letter of the stick and start anyway.
Is there a way to start explorer.exe also when the 'my computer'icon is not there?
Like a key-combination or so.
Sometimes even the Windows startmenu is not there. So the possebilety to start explorer.exe in the run menu is also not possible.
