A little over year ago, we first reviewed Windows 7 Tweaker, a free software designed to change the default settings of Windows 7. The developer of Windows 7 Tweaker has just updated the software to v4.0 to add support for Windows 8 OS and has been renamed to Windows Tweaker.
Windows Tweaker sports an easy-to-use, beautiful user interface and offers over 100 tweaks. Tweaks are available to customize the default OEM information such as manufacturer, model, support phone and support URL, and logo. With this free software one can easily change the default settings of Windows Explorer, display, right-click (context menu), places bar, tasks, features, and logon screen.
One can also launch various administrator tools such as Group Policy Editor, Computer Management, System Configuration Editor, Windows System Security Too, DirectX Troubleshooter, and Event Viewer right from Windows Tweaker.
Under maintenance tab, you can find tweaks to enable boot defragmentation, change hard disk scan timeout (boot time check disk scan), and disable creation of last known good configuration.
All restrictions are located under Restrictions tab. Here, you can disable File menu, right-click menu and many other features. Tweaks are also available to speed up shutdown process. The software lets you create a system restore point before making any changes to default settings.
While Windows Tweaker v4.0 fully supports Windows 8 operating system, you will find very limited tweaks to change Windows 8 Metro and other settings.
It’s an excellent tool to alter the default Windows settings. The only downside is that Windows Tweaker isn’t a portable application, which means that the software can’t be used without installation. It supports both x86 and x64 versions of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems. Some tweaks may not work in Windows XP and Vista.
