|There are applications that boast about being portable, and then there are more modest applications that don't talk about it so much. For example, you'd think that Winamp would be tied to one PC at a time, right? Copy the Winamp program folder to a USB stick and try to run it from a PC that doesn't have Winamp, and surprise, surprise-it's portable! So if you're ever in the mood, go ahead and see if a program you need is portable. And tell us about it, too!|
|Getting Your USB Drive To Autorun|
|On PCs with Windows XP and Service Pack 2, you can bring up an autorun menu (just like the one for CDs) for your USB drive, too! This is how we made an autorun item for PStart, the portable Start Menu:
1. Open Notepad and type in the following text:
*open=PStart.exe* (This is the application that you want to run through the autorun menu)
*action=Open your Start Menu* (This is a description of the action that will be performed)
*icon=PStart.exe* (This is the icon which will be displayed in the autorun menu)
2. Save the file as *autorun.inf* in the root of your USB drive.
3. Now, every time you plug the drive into a PC with Windows XP SP2, you'll get an autorun menu that will include the action you specified in autorun.inf.
