Portability Notes

  • Musixmatch do not have portable mode. It writes non essential data to Windows registry and stores its settings in Windows data folder while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
