Winaero Tweaker 0.10.1 is out

Here is a new version of Winaero Tweaker. This is a maintenance release, just to quickly fix minor issues spotted by users. Here is what's new.

First of all, I've disabled the full-screen nag "You copy of Windows 10 is out of date", which annoys users with updates disabled. This feature is included in the Disable Windows Update option, no extra options were added.

Winaero Tweaker 0.10 Disable Windows Update

The second change I made is as follows. Some users report that the Windows Update service was not disabled for them using the option above. So I changed the method I use to disable it. Should work for everyone now.

I would like to say many thanks to all Winaero Tweaker users. I really appreciate your feedback and support!

Also, thanks to Gaurav and Vitaliy for their suggestions and reports regarding version 0.10.

    I would like to see you add the ability to add/remove those built-in apps which Microsoft doesn’t provide an easy way to uninstall.

      Yes this would be a nice. A GUI for PowerShell so the crap is easily removable from your account, all users and default user account.

      You can do this very easily with CCleaner. Run it, go to Tools -> Uninstall, and it’ll show both regular applications as well as all the Store apps. Everything is uninstallable.

        CCleaner is crap. It touches parts of Windows that it has no business fooling around with and deletes stuff that breaks the OS.

    I installed Winaero Tweaker 0.10 on my Windows 10 and it does not show “Disable Windows Update.” I unstalled it, downloaded again and reinstalled, Still no Disable Windows Update. Any advice?

      That’s impossible.
      It should be there, on the left. Scroll down the navigation pane.

        Well, based on your screenshot above, you have it in the “Bookmarks” section. This is not particularly logical so I expect he is just not seeing it.

      You can also use search box inside Winaero Tweaker to find it.

    Ahh .. I think I found it under Behavior. I kept wondering why it was not showing up on top like you have in the image illustration.

    Thank you for your very quick reply and all the great tips you publish. I look forward to you newsletter every day.

    I am using an X1 Carbon 5th gen with a 2560 x 1440 resolution on a 14″ screen. The ‘system font’ is much too small for me. When using Winaero, I noticed that the system font tool would not allow modification of the font size. Is this a difficult feature to add?
    I prefer not to use the scaling option.
    Thank you for your newsletter and offerings. They are well done.

        That is not true. There a tool https://www.wintools.info/index.php/advanced-system-font-changer
        Works great.

          You are talking about completely different thing.
          The parameters that the tool you mentioned changes are Metric.
          Winaero Tweaker allows changing all of them under “Advanced appearance”.
          The system font is ANOTHER thing, and you cannot change its size or weight.

    Hi, love your app, saves lots of time and energy tweaking the registry:) I have a little silly question as to the latest update, I unpacked it in portable mode as I always do, and in this version the “about” button doesn’t seem to work, while check for updates responds as it should. Is it just me?

      The about item (currently) opens the Information tab. That’s by design, will be changed in the future.

    I can’t disable Windows updates anymore, it just unchecks itself after I go to another tweak.

    Hi Sergey

    I see you’ve added a tweak for Windows 10 users that prevents the thumbnail cache from being deleted on reboot . Is it also possible to add the same feature for other Windows users please as I believe this thumbnail deletion bug goes all the way back to Windows 7 and Microsoft have never fixed it ( I personally have Windows 8.1 and that has this bug ) .

    PS Ive posted this comment again here for the latest update because I posted the comment for the previous update by mistake and I guess you wont be looking at those comments now as theyre for a previous update .
