Hello Tweaker users, here is a quick update to the previously released version 0.17. Winaero Tweaker 0.17.1 resolves the hanging 'Export Specific Firewall Rules' page issue, fixes a bug in the 'Disable Windows Update' option for Windows 10 Home users, and, also comes with a new feature that users request a lot from me in the last few days.
Winaero Tweaker 0.17.1 comes with the following changes.
Export Specific Firewall Rules
I have figured out why this page was hanging for many users. The issue is resolved now, the page opens quickly. Thanks to my friend Milan for his time and assistance!
Disable Windows Update
A number of users have reported that the newer algorithm fails to disable updates in Home editions of Windows 10. In version 0.17.1, I am using the legacy method for Home editions, and the newer one for Pro editions, so everything should work now as expected.
New feature - User Auto Logon Checkbox for Windows 10 version 2004
A new option, 'Enable User Auto Logon Checkbox', can be found under 'Boot & Logon'. It does the simple trick - enables the missing 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this PC ' checkbox.
The new option makes the checkbox appear for both Microsoft and local accounts.
Thanks a lot to our reader 'Jardos' who contributed the solution!
