Windows Tweaker Editor's Review

Everyone likes to customize their own computer or laptop in their own way, this may be by changing wallpapers, screensavers, logon screen, and with the new release of Windows 8, changing start menu colours! However, even though you may not realise it, system customization can go much further than this, and you can alter things beneath the surface. Customization tools such as Windows Tweaker help you do this easily and personalise your system much more than the Windows Control Panel would! It’s time to take some more control over your computer…

Windows Tweaker is an appealing and modern looking application, which fits in with the Windows 8 desktop scheme very well. It consists of tabs across the top of the page for different areas of your system, large buttons at the bottom for Saving, and the centre of the program is for displaying the content. Before doing anything, it’s a good idea to make sure you create a System Restore point in case something goes wrong, and this can be done via the link at the bottom left hand corner of the window.

At launch, you are automatically put onto the System tab, and you instantly see how powerful a piece of software Windows Tweaker is.From the System tab, you can change some of the system information. When you open Computer Properties (right click on Computer and select properties) you may notice some registration information and details about your system manufacturer. Custom built PC’s may not have this information included, and Windows Tweaker provides you with a user interface in order to fill this information in. You can also point to a custom logo for your system too. Alongside this is other options to configure whether Windows should wait for applications to close or not when shutting down, and to disable the Windows Installer Service.

Explorer tab lets you mess around with the Windows UI a little bit, by providing customizability such as whether to show drive letters in My Computer, and how. You can also show or hide Libraries in later versions of Windows, and modify how the Notification Area Works. For more advanced users, you can take control over whether hidden files are show, if file extensions are hidden, as well as given the power to disable certain tabs in the Windows Explorer properties window. Windows 8 users will appreciate the Etcetera section, where you can add a Shutdown button to the Metro Start Screen, instead of using the slightly long winded charms menu.

For those who like things a little bit more simplistic, the Display settings easily let you enable or disable Windows animation, as well as different selection colours and more. If you want to, you can remove the Shortcut arrow from shortcuts, and alter the Window Switcher to your liking, which would be more useful to those who multitask a lot.

The Right Click menu is used all the time by most people, and adding new abilities to it is fantastic idea. Using the Right Click tab, you can add many different functions such as Copy to folder, Encrypt, Move to folder and so on right into the context menu, making managing and working with files a lot quicker and easier. You can also manage your Send to Menu, adding in files and folders for quickly moving data around.

The Places tab lets you change the functions of the Open With menu, as well as determine the default Open With application. You can change the default function of the Power putting and also use the Start-up Manager to change what opens when Windows starts.

If you need to setup scheduled Shutdowns for any reason, this can be done in the Tasks menu. You can hide or unhide files and folders with a system file property, as well as work with Special Folder names to work around the Windows reserved names.

Auto play and Windows Update can be managed through Features, such as how Windows Update runs on your system (if you enable it at all), and the action that is taken when inserting a CD/DVD or USB memory stick. You can disable system bleeps, as well as deactivate the Windows DVD Burning feature if you use other third party software.

Logon lets you setup automatic logins and also enable special keyboard overrides at the login process. Enable Ctrl Alt Del combination and whether the last logged on username is displayed, as well as set up a login message, and much more.

Windows Tweaker also lets you put in place different system restrictions, ranging from disabling right click, to disabling the shutdown option. These could be useful to implement on public or shared computers, and are easy to work with – just check a tick box. You can also carry out different types of maintenance, some basic and some for more advanced users, such as boot defragmentation and group policy updates.

Finally, the Utilities tab lists all the different Windows utilities built into your system for easy and quick access, categorising them into sections depending on what they do. This is a really simple way to find what you need.

When you’ve selected all the tweaks you want to make, hit the Save button at the bottom of the window.

For a piece of freeware, I am impressed! This is definitely one of the most complete and comprehensive system tweaking tools I’ve seen in a while, and the fact that it’s free just makes it even more appealing! I’d definitely recommend this to anyone considering the download, and there really isn’t much to lose. In comparison to some of the paid for system tweakers, this stands out by a mile! Overall, I’d rate it 4/5.
