TinySpell Free Spell Checker Portable

TinySpell freeware utility points on the main feature in its name. This software is designed to check and correct any misspellings in the Windows text applications. While MS Word and some other applications (like email agent MS Outlook and Chrome browser) have the built-in spell checker, other simply do not have it, so user have to copy and paste the text to Word for spell proofing. The software is totally free - no adware/spyware/nagware/etc.

There is one more feature, which I am looking in any freeware – it is portability. The authors do not offer the portable software version on their website; however, there are at least two opportunities to convert it to the portable application:
  1. Install and Uninstall
    • Download the utility on your Hard Drive.
    • Install it regularly on your PC.
    • Copy the C:\Program Files\tinySpell folder to your USB device.
    • From the tinySpell folder, click tinyspell.exe to launch Tiny Spell.
    • Uninstall tiny spell from your PC and continue to use it portably.
  2. With JauntePE Launcher
JauntePE is a suite of tools that allows you to make non-portable applications portable by virtualizing access to the filesystem and registry. While not every program can be easily made portable this way, the portabilization of tinyspell has been successfully confirmed.
Download the JauntePE launcher from the following link:
