Here comes some other useful software when I explorer my portable folder :)

MAXA-Lock from Germany. freemium   1.43M   EXE
It can totally lock your pc from an intruder. notify you with email skype... send their photos and even a video(premium feature) to you!
You should be very very very careful to remember the password you set or you are gonna to be crazy since there is no way to get them back. :'(. But I know how to solve this problem, since Maxa-Lock auto startup on windows, you can try to ctrl+alt+delete and restart the pc with shift pressed to the safe mode(of course there are many other way to the safe mode). Then you can delete it and restart to the normal system. But things go on when you try to reinstall it!!! You need to delete the regedit keys especially HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2654441480-1445004328-1549412186-1001\SOFTWARE\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MAXA\Lock(an easy way is to use total uninstall to uninstall it).

greenfish icon editor, QuickMacro has build-in icon editor and there are many websites offer free to use icons. but why not...   5.77M   USB+

BareGrep A file finding and text searching tool. TC can do it well and even better but this program hasn't been updated since 2006 but still works great on win10. but it seems doesn't support unicode search. The free version with feature limited, the demo version with full feature but Automatically terminates in every 5 minutes.   245K   USB
and of course you should try its another real-time log file monitoring tool baretail.

qwertick adds a sound feedback to your keyboard. if you are practice typing.   33K   USB

Now come to auto correct/spell check.
AutoCorrect(with unicode version) can add you own defined autocorrect, here are two enhanced version from 4DBoy and tov, but tov's extra Edit box for hostrings options seems doesn't work for me.
texter also has this feature, (that's what AHK do, right? :P)
and tiny spell and global-IntelliSense-everywhere(difficult to use)
what about your auto correct software? :huh:

Microsoft Sets haven't officially released yet, its a great feature people are always dreaming of.

I guess WindowTabs is well-known enough, but do you know it is free and open source now. But it is a little sluggish on windows 10.
And also here is another alternative multrin you should try.

I'm now trying to make a mind map for this topic, but since I don't have much spare time and it takes me a lot of time to make a demo gif for each program. I will upload the mm here as long as I finished it, but this is not a promise, maybe it will never be finished if I found it is meaningless. :)
My plan for the mind map is:
Classify it;
Insert official website;
Usage notation;
A gif demo.
