    When a software, like IrfanView, is identified as portable, what does it mean ???

    Can this software be used in a PC as normal - where it is installed to a folder within C:/Program Files - and has Start Menu shortcuts ???

    Thanks, inadvance

    Portable means that it does not need to be installed.
    You can place it in a folder and create a shortcut to the exe

    You can also install the program onto a USB stick and take it and use it on different computers, providing that the operating systems are compatible.

    portable softwares are very small and ready to run appz you can carry it on a USB drive and run directly from it.......... they are very useful and dosen't take more space
