Default Software is Portable - what does it mean ??

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.
