the portableapps menu works fine for .exe files but what if i wanna put a link to a document or other file on that menu? somebody should make a version of the menu that lists the portable apps AND also whatever else anybody wants, period.

PortableApps.com Menu, Backup and Platform/Suite installer.
Great softs out there and the Portable Apps menu is awesome
For your information :
Coppupted apearance with windows apearance configured with big fonts (120ppp instead of 96ppp)
I have a screen picture but do not know how to post it.
Been Using portable apps beta and now this Version 1 since day one.
It is superb - I have loaded lots of apps to the menu - Now I would like to be able to rearrange them so my favourits are together, rather than the alphabetic order they auto arrange to.
Guys, enough with the feature request topics, I think it would be better if we post all out Portable Apps menu feature request/suggestions here!
I've been looking for a page that describes the menu/launcher app under applications. I was curious about a forum posting that referred to the launcher looking down afolder and selecting EXE files.
Specific question; just EXE files? Why not other executables? like COM or BAT? In the past, I've even used BTM files on 4DOS.
The ability to use BAT files would be handy for getting arond the scripting problems noted with multiple EXE files in a directory.
You guys/girls are so far ahead of me it’s ridiculous. I’m new to PortableApps and the forum but I’ve been hooked on all I’ve read so far. I've searched first for an anwser prior to posting, but I might have missed it. Excellent site and program. Thanks, everyone!
I have a simple question on what I hope will be a simple task:
“When I insert my FlashDrive, I want the Portable Apps menu to auto start-up and display or at least load to the minimized tray. I experimented with the creation of an autorun.inf insertion into the root of the Flash drive, but it didn’t work. I’m running WinXP on my Desk and Notebook PC and would like to avoid opening windows explorer and double-clicking on Start PortableApps.exe to get the menu to load.”
I have a flash drive, running the PortableApps Menu on launch. However, when I select the icon, it asks me what program to open with.
First screen: I selected the selected icon.
Second screen: how do I stop this coming up?
My AutoPlay script is as follows:
Open=Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe
before i had portable firefox with all the links, addons and themes but when i put the PAmenu and copied the local settings to that portable firefox it just didnt work
plz help me
When the menu is open on my screen I see an "X" on the bottom of the menu presumably for closing it? When I click on the "X" nothing happens. The only way I can close the menu is to open Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Delete) and terminate the menu. Is this the way I am supposed to close the menu? Should something be working so that the "X" works? Everything else seems to work fine except upgrades are very slow and you need much patience.
I am quite happily using pstart, but I thought that I could switch to the basic version of the menu ...
So I downloaded the stuff and installed it on my usb key... it just doesn't want to launch on my PC with windows NT pro...
I tested it on other PC's and it works fine ...
On my PC I get an error message "windows has generated an error application will close ...
Any suggestions ?
