WinAero Tweaker: The Windows Your Way Tweaker

We featured WinAero Tweaker a few years ago. Today we revisited it to see what was new for Windows 10 users and we found a lot of new tweaks that we think will appeal to most Windows 10 users, especially for those who are annoyed by some of the things Windows 10 changed.

WinAero Tweaker has hundreds of tweaks you can use to customize Windows. Some tweaks and features work only on the specified version of Windows.

For Windows 10 users, you’ll find that WinAero Tweaker allows you to customize Windows 10 and personalize it so it works more like you want it to.

Here are some of the things Windows 10 users can do with WinAero Tweaker.

Change the color of things like title bars & Start menu
Turn on Dark Mode
Turn on Light Mode
Disable Driver Updates in Windows Update,
Disable Live Tiles
Disable Balloon Tips
Disable Cortana
Disable the Lock Screen
Change the Lock Screen background
Customize the Context menu (right-click menu)
Remove arrows from desktop shortcuts
Remove item names from desktop shortcuts
Disable Windows 10 Telemetry (prevent Windows 10 from Phoning home)
Install the old Windows 7 Games ( Backgammon, Spades, Checkers Chess, FreeCell, Purble Place, Solitaire, and Spider Solitaire, Hearts, Mahjong, and Minesweeper.
Get the Windows 7 version of Windows Photo Viewer.
…. and dozens and dozens more Windows tweaks and features.

One of the best features of WinAero Tweaker is what we called the “built-in mess-up protection feature” – that’s our name for it, not the developer’s. 

If you mess something up, you can reset everything back to default by opening WinAero Tweaker and pressing CTRL+R. And if you only want to reverse the tweaks and changes that you made, you can do so by opening WinAreo Tweaker, clicking on “File > Reverse all tweaks”. Folks, it doesn’t get much easier than that.

    I’ve been using it for a couple of years now. Although I back up my configuration before I make too many changes it has worked as advertised all along. Nice pick 🙂
