Editors' Review

Even Windows Explorer is skinnable, so if you're on the hunt for a decent way to change the shades of the XP file navigation system, you could do worse than TweakXPlorer. It's a simple utility that lets you slap an image in Explorer's background, change font colors, and adjust background settings for the Explorer toolbar, too.

Simple buttons with clean icons will help you navigate through the three main interface tabs. There's TweakFolder for folder changes, TweakToolbar for toolbar adjustments, and TweakThumbnail to change thumbnail resolution and size. Importing an image into the toolbar automatically resizes it for the toolbar's rectangular dimensions, and the app makes use of sliders to keep the interface from becoming visually stale. It's portable, although the reasoning behind that decision is not exactly clear. Portable Firefox we get. Portable TweakXPlorer? Not so much.

Drag and drop doesn't work here, so you'll have to navigate through the program itself. Other than that, the biggest limitation that the program faces is that it's kind of pointless unless you're a demanding aesthete for all aspects of Windows. If these visual customizations could be coupled with some serious performance tweaks for Explorer, then we'd be talking about a must-have program.

"Fun And useful tool."

May 07, 2009  |  By bills_brother

 |  Version: TweakXPlorer 2.8.1

Pros

Works well for customizing folders and files.

Cons

A little reluctant to execute sometimes. Kind of hangs up until you slap the side of the screen. The bit about the slap is a joke. The hangup is real.

Summary

Changing the appearance of folders makes them easier to work with and relives some of the boredom.
