Winaero Tweaker 0.8 is out! This release is very special for all users of my app. It is the first version to come with the most requested feature - you can now export your changes to a file and import them on another computer or after a build upgrade (hello, Windows Insiders). Besides this feature, there are tons of fixes and new features in Winaero Tweaker 0.8!
Say hello to the new Import/Export wizard! It is available in the menu under Tools \ Import\Export Tweaks.
It will allow you to review which tweaks to export to a file. You might want to exclude some.
The same is true for the import tweaks procedure. It is possible to see which tweaks will be applied from the file you are trying to import, and exclude some of them if required.
There are some important things you need to know about import and export of tweaks in Winaero Tweaker. Please refer the following article:
Other changes in this release include.
- The tweak to disable the Extract All context menu uses a better method.
- I've fixed a long-standing bug which made the "Open Command Prompt here" command default to Libraries. I also applied a workaround to prevent other custom context menu commands from becoming the default for any file system object.
- The Selection Limit tweak now shows a request to sign out from your user account. It is necessary but was missing.
- I've fixed tons of minor mistakes and made the overall source code quality much better due to refactoring I had to perform for the import and export feature.
