How to easily tweak Windows Vista

Windows

I love tweaking. The only problem is, I haven’t really been able to find a one stop program for all my tweaking needs on Vista. That’s where Ultimate Windows Tweaker comes in. It claims to be the Tweak UI for Windows Vista, and I feel that it lives up to that. It works on both 32 and 64 bit Vista systems and is portable, which means there’s no need to install anything. You can download it here.

After you have it downloaded, extract the file from the .zip file and run it. You should see a Window like the one above. If you want to play it safe, click Create System Restore Point to make it easy to go back if anything messes up. The program has over 130 tweaks, most of which are self explanatory. The only problem I had with this was on my 64 bit system. The shortcut icons would not disappear. Luckily, there are other ways to do this. Overall I find it to be a very handy (and small) application.
