Ceedo Personal is a virtualization software application that helps you install and carry all your favorite programs on portable media such as USB flash drive and pocket hard drives.
You can connect the portable devices to any PC and run the utilities directly on the target system without having to installing the required components.
In a few words, Ceedo Personal is able to create a virtual working environment that comprises personalized software tools that can be used on any system. The best part about it is that it does not leave any traces on the host computer.
Support for various tools
You can install a wide range of apps on a portable media device, such as Thunderbird, OpenOffice, Skype, Pidgin, Trillian, Digsby, Opera, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Chicken Invaders, IrfanView, GIMP, VLC Player, GOM Player, Audacity, MediaMonkey, FileZilla, and Notepad++. They range from Office, instant messaging, web browser, game, photo editor, and media player tools up to IT utilities.
The application can be installed on a USB flash drive which can be plugged in any computer (work, home, Internet café). A welcome screen is displayed when you run the utility that reveals information about its main features.
The GUI looks clean and is made up of two main areas: the docking toolbar which is placed at the top of your screen (by default) and access menu which opens directly from the docking toolbar.
The docking toolbar can be used for storing desktop shortcuts and closing the utility, while the access menu allows you to run programs from your Ceedo drive, view information about portable drive (available and occupied size), as well as access documents and files. The menu looks like a Windows Start menu so you should get used to working with it in no time.
Add and run programs in the Ceedo workspace
You may embed tools in the menu by opening the ‘Programs Directory’ and downloading and installing the utilities. You can run programs by simply clicking on the shortcuts from the docking toolbar and view all apps installed in your workspace right in the access menu. Ceedo Personal automatically places the most frequently programs at your fingertips.
Rich suite of configuration settings
Ceedo Personal lets you show or hide the welcome screen upon opening the program, copy Internet Explorer favorites to Ceedo, and choose your default web browser and email client.
You can change the visual style of Ceedo windows and menus by selecting between several themes, highlight all opened windows with a custom color, and display a custom nickname and picture.
What’s more, you can use large icons in the docking toolbar, automatically hide the toolbar when it’s not in use, change the position of the toolbar (top, bottom, left, right), clear temporary files upon exit, set up a master password, specify a name for the drive, and assign hotkeys.
An overall efficient and reliable portable working environment
All in all, Ceedo Personal mixes up user-friendly looks with a decent feature pack for helping you carry your programs and documents and access them anytime and anywhere.
