Winaero Tweaker 0.6.0.7 is here with 13 new tweaks and 11 fixes

A new version of Winaero Tweaker is out. I did a lot of work to make this release feature rich and notable. I fixed several bugs in the app and added a number of new features which I hope you will find useful.

winaero-tweaker-0607 Winaero Tweaker 0.6.0.7 comes with plenty of changes. Here is the change log.

I resolved the following bugs:

  • The annoying bug with search. If your previous search result contained only a single item in the list, the next search would open only the first item which matched the search query. Thankfully I fixed this issue.
  • Fixed all appearance issues report by our reader MDJ:
    fixed the trackbar layout in Behavior\Show Menu Delay
    fixed the trackbar layout in Behavior\Xmouse
    fixed the trackbar layout in Advanced Appearance\Windows Title Bar
    fixed the trackbar layout in Advanced Appearance\Icons
    fixed the trackbar layout in Advanced Appearance\Menus
    fixed the trackbar layout in Advanced Appearance\Scrollbars
  • Winaero Tweaker now respects the maximized window state of its window and saves its position and size. Thanks to our readers for feedback.
  • The option File Explorer\Drive Letters now requires logout to work properly.
  • Network\Network Drives over UAC added again when running in recent builds of Windows 10, since the option is seen to be working again.

New features in this release are as follows.

New features in Winaero Tweaker 0.6.0.7

Context menu tweaks

  • The ability to remove "Scan with defender".
  • The ability to remove "3D print with 3D Builder".
  • The ability to remove "Cast to device".

See the following screenshot: winaero-tweaker-remove-context-menu-entries

  • The ability to add "New -> PowerShell script file" to the New menu of File Explorer: winaero-tweaker-new-ps1-file
  • When you select more than 15 files, File Explorer disables certain context menu commands. Now you can bypass this limitation with a single click: winaero-tweaker-15-files-context-menu
  • A new command "Open Bash Here" specially for users who use Bash on Ubuntu frequently. winaero-tweaker-bash

Security and Privacy

  • The ability to disable the Password Reveal button from the sign-in screen, in Edge and Internet Explorer. winaero-tweaker-password-reveal-button
  • The ability to hide the Network icon on the Lock screen. winaero-tweaker-lock-screen-network-icon
  • The ability to hide the Power button and the shutdown menu on the sign-in screen. winaero-tweaker-power-button-sing-in-screen
  • The ability to enable USB write protection. winaero-tweaker-usb-write-protection
  • The ability to add "Require a password on wakeup" to Power Options. winaero-tweaker-wakeup-password

Other changes
A new tool has been added to find your current lock screen image or grab the entire Spotlight image collection which Windows 10 has downloaded and stored on your drive. Unlike scripts you might be using for this, the tool doesn't collect "garbage" files like provisioned app icons and promoted app tiles. Also, it sorts images according to their screen orientation (Landscape and Portrait). winaero-tweaker-find-lock-screen-images

The option Show BSOD Details will allow you to disable the "user-friendly" sad smiley which Windows 8 and Windows 10 show instead of the classic blue screen. Once it is disabled, Windows will display a BSOD with technical information like Windows 7. This is very useful for troubleshooting. winaero-tweaker-bsod

I have started to code an Import/Export feature to save and apply all the changes again that you have made. This will be useful after a clean reinstall, Windows build upgrade or on another PC. As of this writing, the feature is implemented partially so it did not make it into this release. I hope to finish it for the next release. I also did some code improvements and optimizations to make the application more stable.

I would like to say thanks to all users of Winaero Tweaker and all the readers of our blog. I really appreciate your feedback and support. It allows me to make my app better with every release and gives me confidence that all Winaero projects are worth my time.

That's it. Feel free to report any bugs you find and make your own suggestions.

      I’ll also add a suggestion (perhaps I already did in the past, sorry) about the Bookmarks. It’d be probably best if it acted as a “filter” list so when “Bookmarks” are enabled, we would only see our favourite options in the left and work as usual, in the same interface (without a new list).

      Currently, with Bookmarks enabled, when you click on a favourite option, the Bookmark list disappears and you have to select Bookmarks again then go back to another option etc. which is a bit tedious when you have a lot of Bookmarks.

      Also, the current Bookmarks list is sorted in a completely different way than the main list (the items are in different places) making it more confusing. For example, “Windows Defender Tray Icon” is at the bottom of the main list while it’s at the top (2nd place) of the Bookmarks list. This problem would also be solved with a “filtered-out” list.

    Lots of great features. One thing though. No matter what I do, even with manual registry edit, I can NOT get the Install Updates on right-click of .cab file. Any suggestions? I am using Windows 10 IP 14951 x64. Perhaps it just does not work with this build.

      Hi David.
      Can you export your context menu command into a REG file and post it here?
      I would like to dive into the problem.

    Thanks for the bash anywhere addition. It even works across Symlinked/Junctioned drives!

    To add to it, could you create a way for us to create new bash scripts (.sh) like you did with the new Powershell Script file?

      Please tell me the following.
      1. In which groups this Windows account is included.
      2. Is it a local account, some MS account or a domain account?
      3. Can you tell me what is its profile location? At least is it a remote profile on a network drive or it is a profile on a local drive? I would appreciate the profile path.

      Maybe I can contact you via your email you left in these comments if you allow me?

    Why did you remove the Startup Sound feature?

      I have not removed it.
      It just does not work in Windows 8 and Windows 10. So it is hidden in these OSes.

    Great app! Could the next release include the tweak that can change the UAC prompts from the flat, modern style to the classic Windows 7 style? Thanks

    Thank you for this wonderful tool! Any word on the “Disable Cortana” feature not working? I have the box checked, but Cortana is still running in my Task Manager and will not be disabled. Thank you again for making Windows 10 usable for me!

    The removing scan with windows defender option comes back on boot. You need a task scheduled on logon to remove it. Anyway, thanks so much for this tool and looking forward to the settings import/export feature.

    Thanks again for all the stuff here.

    I have 2 questions/requests:

    1. Is there a way NOT to disable the action center, but rather just hide it’s icon, while still being able to call the center by Wind key + A ? That would be just perfect for me.
    ( Windows 10 v. 1511 / 10586.545 ) I do not like the Anniversary Uupdate, I did not installed it, cause it moves the Action Center button in the bottom-right corner, on the right side of the clock, which for me is absurd. It ruins the Windows OS UI concept.

    2. I am with Windows 10 v. 1511 / 10586.545 and I do not see the “Color Sync” / “Sync MEtro & Aero colors” options, but I probably won’t use them anyway, but I mean something else:
    Is there a way, like on Android material design, maybe on v 5.Lollipop – to sync the window’s title bar color with the application window’s upmost colour – for example , a website is red, and the title bar becomes red too, see Yandex browser’s tabs and u’ll se what I am talking about. :)

    Please note that the export/import function is the most useful one of them all. Your examples when to use it are incomplete. In fact many settings, especially the fonts, are reset everytime you change the system language! I do this very often (between german and english) and am constantly annoyed by having to get all my settings back.

    That new feature would also allow to quickly change between the MS default state and the personal (modified) state for troubleshooting. I hope it is completed in the next version! Thanks for your useful work!
