GitHub Desktop is a user-friendly desktop application that allows you to interact with your GitHub repositories. It is generally designed to be installed on a computer, but some users may want to use it as a portable application.
A portable application is a software program that you can carry around on a removable drive and use on any computer without installing it. Portable versions of GitHub Desktop are not officially supported by GitHub, but there are some third-party tools that can help you make the application portable.
One such tool is “PortableApps.com Platform”, it is a free and open-source tool that allows you to create portable versions of software. It includes a utility called “PortableApps.com Installer” that can be used to create portable versions of GitHub Desktop.
Another option is “Portable GitHub”, it is a project that aims to make GitHub Desktop portable. This project is based on the “PortableApps.com Platform” and it is a community-driven project, so it may not always be up-to-date with the latest version of GitHub Desktop.
It’s important to note that using a portable version of GitHub Desktop may have some limitations, such as lack of integration with the operating system or lack of access to certain features. It is also important to make sure that you have the proper rights to use the software in a portable way, depending on the software’s license.
