Google Chrome Portable no longer can substitute Edge

Submitted by restitutororbis on June 13, 2022 - 3:35pm

Hello, been a long-time user of portable apps, kudos for the great website. I accidentally clicked on the Make default browser pop-up in Edge and that messed up the previously default Google Chrome portable. I went through two threads dealing with that but besides changing the Google Chrome to Google Chrome Portable entry in the Windows 10 settings, nothing else happened. Upon attempting to make Chrome the default browser in its settings, nothing happens. Upon trying the same in the Windows settings, also nothing happens. What is this new skulduggery and is there a way around it?

µTorrent Portable no longer exits µTorrent!

Submitted by lwc on May 28, 2022 - 5:43am

Starting up to a few weeks ago, when I right click the program's green icon and choose to quit, it fakes quitting but doesn't actually quit.
That is, the green button goes away, making it impossible to continue using the program, but Task Manager nonetheless shows uTorrent.exe still runs.
Even more so, when you re-launch uTorrentPortable.exe nothing happens, no UI pops up. This is actually what triggered me to investigate Task Manager in the first place.

Google Chrome duplicate taskbar icon

Submitted by kiwichick on May 23, 2022 - 11:11pm

Sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't see any way to search the forum to find previous posts.

When Google Chrome is pinned to the taskbar why does it create a second taskbar icon when opened? Is there any way to prevent this happening? I tried using "Pin to taskbar" via the PortableApps Platform but it didn't work.

Update Problem with Opera Portable

Submitted by GDVX_111 on May 14, 2022 - 7:38pm

I'm not sure exactly what precipitated this, but after years of successful usage I recently ran into a hard to resolve problem updating your portable Opera, in which it kept going in circles saying that it was updating, but always remained on the existing version. (I run my portable apps as individual standalones, rather than making use of your Launcher platform.) I tried all of the listed updating methods, up to and including attempts at installing the new version over top of the prior one, but no dice.
