Editors' Review

+

There's no doubt that the freeware Tweak UI is a tool designed for people comfortable and confident with mucking about in the guts of their Windows XP installation. If that's not you, we strongly caution against using this program capriciously.

However, if you're the kind of person who likes to get your hands dirty with XP customizations, read on. Tweak UI can alter most of the routine behaviors of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, but it also can affect some of the more advanced ones, too. From customizing the Alt Tab program switcher to removing the white arrow that appears on shortcut icons, from killing the autoplay feature for specific drives to configuring file and print sharing settings, Tweak UI is a must-have.

The interface is basic, but that's all the program needs. Use the left-nav tree to select settings to tweak, and the subchoices appear in the center pane. Old installation problems have been resolved by a standard self-extracting EXE, making this program not only useful but easy to install. Still, to prevent unwanted or potentially damaging alterations, we recommend that only power users confident in making these changes go ahead and use Tweak UI.

Pros

Gross looking.

It's an alright GUI product. But if you're smart enough you'd know that you can do all of this on your own on your computer.

"wonderfull program for customizin window"

April 30, 2011  |  By capitanflorius

 |  Version: Tweak UI 2.10

Pros

It has many use. There are not guide, but when we point mouse over each function appears information of this.
Important: in the sector "template" we can add voice and programs to contex menu "new" (when we right clic on desktop)

Cons

Nothing of cons.

Summary

This does exactly what it says it does, quietly and well, allowing you to adjust many features of the user interface for windows.
It needs attention about all things we change (write them a part for remember) and restor in a secon moment if change are't of our agree!!
For all that remain it's all OK.
