Note: Set your computer to show hidden folders if you cannot see your %programdata% folder.

If you have limited space on your system disk, you can optimize PickMeApp Pro setup. For more information, see Optimizing PickMeApp.

To utilize PickMeApp Pro’s capabilities fully, you should let it run permanently in the background.
