Enter the world of Windows Policies and tweaks with this well-written and very useful utility. TweakEasy Professional's very basic text and three-pane interface won't impress anyone. That is, until they start to use and really appreciate how logically arranged and informative it is. While not a program for novices, experienced users will be very happy to read the program's short manual.
The joy of operating TweakEasy Professional is in the program's three views. The Policies Browser places the more than 2,000 tweaks in a simple list arranged by system. An easy-to-use search screen makes finding tweaks a quick process. Finally, power users can choose to save tweaks in a special Bookmark List.
The keys to any tweak program are information and usefulness. Each tweak includes an information pane explaining system requirements, a general tweak description, and an explanation on the ramifications of enabling, disabling, or not configuring the tweak. That's a welcome amount of information that is very unusual in this genre. Changing any tweak is a mere matter of double clicking it and choosing Enable, Disable, or Don't Configure from a simple pull-down.
The great downside to this demo is the too-short 15-day trial. That's barely long enough to get a taste of this program's extensive collection of tweaks. Nevertheless, we can easily recommend giving TweakEasy Professional a test run.
