Yes. Most of the Portable softwares are from portableapps.com and installed on a KINGSTON 8GB Flash drive but portable versions of following softwares are not from above mentioned site: Irfan View, MP TRIM, USB Disk Ejector, SIW, Screamer Radio.

And yes, I had developed the MP3 Player software 4 years ago. You can download it from my website.

You said that you don’t need any software for screen shots BUT “MS Paint” (as you suggested) is also a SOFTWARE preinstalled on Windows by default. I had quitted “MS Paint” approx 8 years ago due to lack of features which I found in “IrfanView”.


#78

Don’t show your childish behavior! When I had told this :

“I just opens Irfan View/ Edit/ Paste.”

Then it’s a COMMONSENSE that you are using this printscreen process. You don’t need to write all the details that " click on the screen, press printscreen button and blah blah blah!!"

How you are supposed to do something without ‘‘SOFTWARE’’ on windows…
