How to install and run software on a USB stick with PortableApps - video tutorial

In this tutorial we will learn to use the USB stick to store programs pre-installed and you can launch them anytime and on any computer.

Many of you have at home usb sticks that you no longer use, so I thought that was out of the bottom of the tray usb dusty and give him a new life.

With the application, or rather a suite of the company PortableApps, we could take with us everywhere favorite software.

When you go to an internet cafe or a friend in the computer, we can not use software for people watching favorite chioris when you want to install and you something, but from now on it is no longer a problem PortableApps there to help us launch programs on a USB stick without the need to install.

Just tuck the stick into the USB port and launch one of the many programs available from the beginning.

In this issue we will come back with other video tutorials that will refine this method and we will adjust so as to put the stick almost any software.

    Thank you !

  7. Yeah [Email protected]psihologu:
    Sure, we'll do on this, we present how to manage a hosting account on a shared server from a hosting provider in Romania

  8. I have a question myself. What movie as clearly seen?

  9. Marius was not filmed with a camera monitor as many would think ... it's a software / program that you capture the screen, as you do print screen, print screen that's only in video mode but to say asa.Sunt many programs that can do this screenshot ... search on google and you will find! Just as with software to record sounds captured by a microphone sounds like this software so if you register and what happens on your PC descktopul! Can do just capture your descktop, not a room you know in your hand and shoot what you want ...

  10. I've got a soft one 2008 video monitor but do not know why not obvious, I put a video on youtube created with this soft and barely see what I wrote there. Matter how good is my computer or the program is to blame? Am I allowed to put the name of the program here, just the name ... maybe someday and make a tutorial about this program can be found on the net free trial.

  11. Marius quality not think you necessarily soft but rather its settings! If you want a bigger and clearer picture capture a small portion set not full screen! So Christ is, set capture a smaller portion and decrease the window borders to fit in that square as set for capture, if you set it to capture full screen, zoom automatically when you upload is smaller and blurry images try to set capture less of the monitor! I do not think it would be a problem if you put the name of this program ... you probably can not give the link where you can download only the name of the software but if not I think it would be a problem.

  12. Thanks a lot !! Im your hottest

  13. yeah I'm sure this use ... more ... and a little studio ... well, I think Camtasia uses and Cristi ... if I'm not mistaken ... :)

    Thank you very Cristi! I posted here in the idea that it ultimu `tutorial uploaded and I relied on that it will be read in time .. and there was a suggestion subjective in the sense that I have a Romanian housting, namely Romtelecom and the menu is not similar to the presented to you in tutorials about managing databases in mysql database having no added .. and to add the tables ... also requires no privileges option .. which I kind Adrian derutat.Evident someone would say .. "requires the support provider that's only paying for" .. the idea is that provideru `has people have no idea what it means date.Prin base so I made a suggestion, if possible I would be delighted to do a tutorial .. it's ok ... if not in fact until after all are convinced that doing what you do out of passion and desire to share your knowledge with novices and sign that flatter you without the intention to publish a tutorial linked The housting, are a selfless person and quality.

    Thanks for your attention and my apologies if I have broken any rules!

    PS I am not a novice in the computer and have the ... if anything can be used in a development of this brilliant idea ... with what great pleasure!

  15. psychologist misunderstood me and I'm sorry! have not violated any rules but would be well and good to post questions to the tutorial that is the theme, so you keep a man "cleanliness" and everything will make more sense, comments are to complement the tutorial, not speak on topics of sport, and who was also stripped by gossip magazine ... How about the fact that you thought that this tutorial is the latest we so we could give your problem, you're wrong! We observe absolutely all comments no matter where you post, even I manage this job, both I and administrators of this site, wherever you are posted, this site is good enough that someone monitored to see your post! There is no damage you have done so, but we keep in order, clean and a little discipline! Great success and do not be mad at me! You saw that I said in the future, and I even asked to make sure, if it was to be a loss, is taking other steps!

  19. @Corleone: It's normal to be so .. needs a platform to run for a man! As you can not go on or through the air, and you need to walk the earth as always and sometimes actually leave footprints where you step, and so this program needs your support!

      My question is: Why do we need this app?

      In order to manage them better, you noticed that with portable apps you put the stick and has a autorun comes your tray near the clock a menu where you can quickly launch applications, you and a mini menu where you have a function of back- up, you can launch all at one place, without having to give browse through my computer, double click on the stick and then double-click to enter the folder where the software and then double-click the executable software or to release it ... And If you took all logic and see the benefits of this software! Be open minded (open-minded)
