Winaero Tweaker 0.12.1 is out with fixes and a couple of new features

Winaero Tweaker 0.12.1 is here. This version comes with two new features, and also includes a number of suggestions made by users since version 0.12 along with adjustments made for Windows 10 version 1809.

Here are the changes in Winaero Tweaker 0.12.1

  • The case sensitivity context menu is now available for Windows 1803+. Thanks to Walkman.
  • The "Disable wide context menu" is now hidden for Windows 10 1809. Microsoft has removed this feature, so it doesn't work in October 2018 Update. Thanks to Jason.
  • The "Disable Edge prelaunching" feature now works correctly for both 1803 and 1809 versions of Windows 10. Thanks to TairikuOkami.
  • The "Disable Windows Update" feature now disables two extra services, Windows Update Medic Service and Update Orchestrator Service. Thanks to OMC.

    Is this backward-compatible? I’m still running 1803 17134.112

      Sure it is. It still supports all Windows 10 versions, Windows 8.1, Windows 8.0, and Windows 7.

    Thanks for this update, Sergey !
    One thing I noticed: on the change log page (https://winaero.com/comment.php?comment.news.1836), this version should read 0.12.1 (instead of 0.12) …

        Not fixed yet; see under “Winaero Tweaker’s change log” – (first line) 0.12 see the official announcement (instead of 012.1).
        Thanks !

    Hi, thanks for this very useful software!

    I’m noticing something strange with the “Take Ownership” feature. When I apply it to a single file, it works as expected and I see my username under the file’s properties > security tab. But when I take ownership over a whole directory, instead of an entry for my username, I get “Account Unknown(S-1-5-21-18776……..)” listed, and I don’t get ownership assigned to myself. Is it a bug?

    Using version 12.1 on Windows 10 64-bit.

    Bug report: “Disable Timeline” option is available on Win10 v1709, but Timeline was not introduced until v1803. In v1709, it is still just “Task View”. Shouldn’t it be hidden?

    Hi
    I have a feature request: an option to exclude a executable from having to ask UAC rights. There’s a bunch of guides around the internet (ex. https://lifehacker.com/how-to-eliminate-uac-prompts-for-specific-applications-493128966), but no real easy tool or script to do it.
    I’ve put UAC on the highest setting but would like to add some exclusions.

    Thanks!

      Hello,
      It is already in the tweaker app, under Tools – Elevated Shortcut.

    Can you please script in an option when you change the dark modes to also have an option for Edge and maybe other apps that need to be manually set? Basically setting Edge to dark mode manually every time you change dark mode for other areas is a burden and it would be nice to be able to collectively set everything to Dark in one panel.

    I’m trying to set my font sizes larger like I was able to in Windows 7. I set all the fonts in the Advanced Appearance Settings and that helped but it didn’t change all the fonts. For example it didn’t change the font size in the menu options in the Winaero Tweaker program. I was only able to change the top menu font (File, View Tools,etc).

    Do you know if it is possible to change desktop application font size either in your program or in the registry? It seems like there were more options to adjust the font size in Windows 7 but I’m not sure.

    Thanks!
