    Portable Apps site does not update Chrome x64 Portable as often as I would like it to. It still lists version 73.0.3683.86 as the latest one, but it isn't. The same can be said for FoxIt Reader and some other apps. Is there some way to extract the needed files from Chrome full install packages?

    What is funny? It's the best way if it is possible. No need to re-install after clean format (if kept on separate partition), reduces use of registry, etc.

    Still don't see what's funny. Nothing wrong with portableapps.com, I use several portable apps from there, works fine.
