Portable stuff.



You may have noticed me mentioning portable programs, over the years. They have many obvious advantages.

If you have to reinstall Windows, they'll still work.

You can put them on a USB stick and they'll work, on any Windows computer (within reason).

Dead easy to backup. Just copy them somewhere else.

&c.

Here's a site where you can get loads of these programs.

http://portableapps.com/apps

Edited to add that virus-checkers might flag these up as being malicious.

They're not. :)

Thanks for that Katzy, I rarely have need of such apps, but they can be useful.

I've got loads, on a stick. I take it with me, when fixing someone's machine. :)
