This page lists the file and folder structure for the Portable Canvas builds.

Files in a folder are listed under the folder name, indented by one more bullet level.

Italicized words are file names (or equivalent).

Portable Canvas Win

Location: C:\Program Files\Portable Canvas

Location is fixed; otherwise, the "Browse local files" button doesn't work; location is statically defined in "mybrowser.jar/.../mybrowser.js".
