You may have been in a situation where you needed to download and install an application, but because of limited rights, you were simply unlucky. Fortunately, there are many developers who develop applications in the so-called portable version, which does not need to be installed. Just save it to disk and start using it. Of course, there are far fewer applications like this, and we don't even find some in the portable version. PortabelApps.com is a site where we find quite a lot of them and still find them nicely sorted by categories.
PortableApps.com is basically a Swiss knife for your computer. We can download applications individually from the database or we can download PortableApps platform from which we can install individual applications.
This platform, or if you want a portable Start menu, creates a kind of launcher for installed applications. The optimal solution is to download the platform and applications to the flash drive and thanks to the autorun function, when the drive is connected to the PC, the application starts directly.
You can search for individual applications by category directly on the project website, or you can search directly in the application. You can then save the selected application to disk and run the installer, or download it through a platform that does everything for us. The new ones are then automatically loaded into the application list.
The advantage is an ever-expanding offering that offers a solid foundation for all commonly used areas, whether graphics, security, organization, or games and entertainment. Another advantage is that none of these applications are installed on the computer, thus avoiding system filling and the like. The disadvantage is of course a limited number of applications. Let's not look for paid apps here.
