If you prefer to use the Portable Apps menu instead the in run the Portable Apps Menu shortcut on the taskbar.  The portable apps menu also allows you to download more apps by selecting the Apps>Get more apps. These freshly downloaded apps will be saved to the USB drive. Portable Apps Menu






















It’s a large download of over 2gb, so be patient it can take 20-40 minutes (depending on your internet speed) to download.  After downloading burn the bootable ISO file to  USB using rufus or similar program to create your bootable USB. A BIG THANKS to everyone over at
***For all those having issues with the 2gb iso file download I have heard there are timeout issues downloading 2gb or larger files. I have rared the iso and put in a folder inside the same folder. It’s called Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.rar and is inside the folder called “download from here if having problems with iso file” Try downloading that one. Be patient it sometimes takes 2-4 minutes for the download to start.
