Portability assets

This is the portable counterpart of KchmViewer - http://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/File-Editors/KchmViewer.shtml, which means that you can easily skip the installation process. Moreover, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any kind of changes, and there will be no traces left behind.

Another noteworthy aspect is that, if you move the program files to an external data device, you make it possible to run KchmViewer Portable on any computer you can get your hands on.

Upload CHMs, extract their contents or add bookmarks to them

The UI you come by is very simple and intuitive, as it only contains a menu bar, several buttons, and a few panes to help you view a folder structure and the actual contents of the Help file.

This software utility enables you to upload CHM documents using the built-in file browser, increase or decrease the font size or enable a full screen mode. Aside from that, you can add or edit bookmarks, use a search function, open several tabs and extract the CHM contents to a custom directory on the computer.

CPU and memory usage is minimal and thus, the computer’s performance is not going to be hindered, and you can run it along with another program, without facing any kind of issues.

Conclusion

To sum up, KchmViewer Portable is a handy piece of software, which finished all jobs in due time. It did not freeze or crash in our tests, the environment is simple to handle and there are sufficient options incorporated.
