    1. If you have Win 10 head over to the microsoft store and download Solitary collection. It has freecell and all the other cool games there too!

  1. Thank you for the Windows games. I uninstalled the older version and it would not reinstall. Somewhere I noticed a place to donate…you are worth it.
    Sincerely, DP

  3. Hi, I’m having issues with the right click not working on the start button on windows 10, I used your Win+X menu editor 3.0.0.0 however when I try to restore defaults it says @the following files were nor processed” then lists all the files under the 3 group files under WinX. Any ideas? I’ve tried all of the fixes I can find.

  4. thanks for you winaero tweaker software,but ,My English is not good.So I want your support chinese thank you

  5. Обнови сертификат сайта. Хром уже ругается.

  6. Have downlaoded Winaero 0.10.2 as i am having huge problems with Windows updates. Does this also counter the new Windows 10 Update Facilitation Service (I have manually disabled it, but I can’t stop it)

    Regards
    Coral

  7. Are there any quiet install switches for the Old Calculator for Windows 10 executable? I’d love to be able to deploy it to several systems at once.

    Thanks!

  8. To Whom it may Concern;
    The Winero – “Uninstall Edge Utility – “NO LONGER WORKS”, AFTER MICROSOFT’S RECENT ANNIVERSARY WIN 10 UPDATE RELEASE! When Microsoft was changing my choice to use theOPERA Browser as my Default Browser and attempting to “FORCE ME TO USE THEIR “WORTHLESS” BROWSER THAT DOES NOT SUPPORT JAVA, & most importantly their embedded ADOBE Flash Player “DOES NOT WORK”! & most sites that require a Flash Player will not display properly, or, not at all,for me, I knew that it was time for Microsoft’s “WORTHLESS” Edge Browser to GO!
    I hope that an Update version of this Utility will soon be offered so that I can once again not be bothered with Microsoft’s “WORTHLESS” Edge Browser!

  10. I just downloaded Winaero Tweaker to customize my Windows Borders on Windows 10 Enterprise 64 bit. However, adjusting either the width or padding only seems to adjust the width of the top border. Also, when I click on “See in detail how this tweak works” I get an Unhandled Exception of “The system cannot find the file specified”

    The following is the full text of the error:

  13. Hi Sergey
    ..have just discovered Winaero and find it to well designed. Many thanks.

    ..have a question…
    Is there anyway to be able to use the Win 8.1 Alarm interface on Win 10?
    I really prefer 8.1’s “dial circles” presentation.
    Thanks,
    Ania

    1. Hi Ania
      Unfortunately, it is not possible. Microsoft has changed the Store app platform in Windows 10.

  14. Hello, guys
    Contact us to discuss the license agreement? We plan to use the product within the enterprise.

      1. On my Win10 computer that I’ve had chess on for several years….suddenly the chess wouldn’t work. I uninstalled and reinstalled games but still the same thing, no chess. It says something about the link moved or something but I hadn’t changed a thing.

  15. I triied following your method to download .net 3.5 but the script is not recognizing the media I insterted on USB drive and it simply exits. I also tried the DISM command and I get source not found error.

  16. Hello, thank you for creating the Old Caclulator APP for Windows 10, but how do I install it without disabling the Windows 10 calculator?

    Thanks

  17. hi. why am i not getting newsletters to my e-mail. noticed this the past couple of days. can you let me know. thanks.

  18. I have winaero tweaker latest update on my desktop it works fine then i downloaded to my laptop
    and all i get is the license agreement why is that have win 10 on both machines

  19. The Tools>Import\Export tweaks does not work. It never correctly imports the bookmarks. I have about 30 and it only imports about 5. And it doesn’t import the tweaks as they were set when exported.
    I always have to go through manually and rebookmark all my bookmarks, but also always have to change the settings on at least half of items I bookmarked and made specific settings.
    Why? I have not looked in detail at the exported tweak file but they seem to all be there. But almost all bookmarks and many many settings are not imported. I have admin account running Windows 10 lastest version but it has happened on all past versions for at least the last year.

    1. noting which tweaks fail to import could be helpful.
      As I understand, it also fails to import bookmarks for you.

      1. There are three issues.
        1. Is it exporting the bookmarks and tweaks correctly to the ini file. No.
        2. Is it importing the bookmarks and tweaks correctly from the ini file. No.
        3. Currently, it is not possible to tell which tweaks fail to import, because a) I do not know how many tweaks were set different than their default values in the GUI, b) I do not know how many tweaks are/were in the ini file.

        Just now,
        I manually counted my bookmarks in the Winaero GUI. I have 83.
        I did a Tools > Export Tweaks. It ended successfully with a message 69 tweaks have been exported.
        I opened the WinAero Tweaker.ini file. Under [Favorites] there are 82 lines\tweaks.
        I immediately did Tools > Import Tweaks From a File. It completed successfully with a message 68 tweaks have been imported.
        So, nothing matches.

        Results
        #bookmarks exported to ini does not match bookmarks in WinAero. (its short by 1).
        Any, everytime, I have imported any WinAero Tweaker.ini, I have never had more than 4 or 5 bookmarks import.
        69 Tweaks exported, only 68 tweaks imported.
        69 Tweaks exported may be correct as not all of the bookmarked tweaks are set/modified from default. I manually counted 66 so it’s probably correct because it is very difficult to tell with some tweaks if they have been changed from their defaults.

        First fix I think should be the bookmarks because the results are immediately observable. If I have 83 bookmarks in WinAero and only 82 are exported to ini, and only 4 or 5 are ever imported, that seems like something obvious will jump out as to the cause.
        I’d gladly send you my exported .ini file and any other file but I do not know how to contact you other than this web page.
        An immediate import of tweaks just after an export should match the number of exported tweaks.

        Second, although you appear to have a “Reset this page to defaults” (does every tweak page have this?), often one cannot tell if the page is currently set to its default.
        “Taskbar Button Width”, I can Reset to Default or click on System Default, but I have no idea if the current value of 100 is different from the System Default or the Reset to Defaults value, no way to know if I ever changed/set this tweak.
        “Scrollbars”, I can reset to default but just looking at it, I have no idea if I set the value of 17 or if 17 is the default and I have never changed/tweaked this setting.
        Those are just some, I hope not too silly examples. My point is it would be very helpful for the user to know when looking at a tweak page what the default values are for that tweak, and even more helpful if it was very obvious to the user when a tweak has been set/modified, perhaps the color changes … Green for default values and Blue for changed values. Or directly below the “Reset this page to defaults” the actual default value was shown. Or even a permanent summary at the top of the GUI in or near Information, saying you have modified 69 tweaks. That was after an Import or a Windows update, when I start WinAero I will immediately know if personalized settings have been changed.

        Lastly, Windows 10 is such an ongoing beta nightmare I am sure it is more frustrating for you than for most users. Everytime it does an update, it without any notification or consent, always changes seemingly random settings. I never know when or if any of my personalized settings have been changed. So, I depend on WinAero to or I should say, I would love to depend on WinAero Import Tweaks to change everything back to what I like. But, currently I never know

      2. There are three possible issues.
        1. Is it exporting the bookmarks and tweaks correctly to the ini file. Not bookmarks for sure.
        2. Is it importing the bookmarks and tweaks correctly from the ini file. Not bookmarks for sure.
        3. Currently, it is not possible to tell which tweaks fail to import, because a) I do not know how many tweaks were set different than their default values in the GUI, b) I do not know how many tweaks are\were in the ini file.

  21. Like I haven’t bugged you enough. These would be new tweaks if they are even possible.
    1. In Windows 10 Registry Editor, Favorites, is there any tweak to add a scrollbar or make the list of favorites multi-column? I have way more favorites than can fit in one screen column and the only way to go through the list is by clicking on those tiny arrows, they scroll very very slow, and if try to pick a favorite that is near the bottom of your scroll the favorite list jumps back to the beginning of the list.
    Additionally, is there any tweak to sort the Windows 10 Registry Editor Favorites list?
    2. The very same issue with the context menu in File Explorer: Is there any tweak to add a scroll bar or make it multi-column. I know some items can made “extended” items but most of mine cannot.

  22. After updating to Windows pro 2004, my Winaero Win7 games no longer works. I still have the installation file Win7Games4Win 10_8_81_v2, but after reinstalling from scratch it’s still not working. Can you suggest a solution to this problem?

  23. I installed Winaero Tweaker on my Win 10 PC and tried to use the backup and restore of the start menu. I was in the 1st user account with the desired startup menu and ran backup. I copied the backup file to a 2nd user account, signed out of the first account, logged into the 2nd account, ran Tweaker and did the Import. Signed out and back in and no changes were present. Is there something I am doing wrong?

  24. Donate does not work from India. I downloaded the games for win 10 in 2 systems. Would like to donate what I can next time I come to download.

    1. A tout le monde
      A tous mes amis
      Je vous aime
      Je dois partir

      I have not implemented anything good yet.
      Also I do not understand how people will maintain their translation. It is a hard work.
      There are many questions I can’t answer.

  25. Hello, when I´m using custom folders on sidebar on explorer, browsing explorer (opening another subfolders) is slower. It takes maybe 1/4 of second longer and for a brief moment loading icon appears. Is this something to be expected?
    Thanks!

      1. I´m using custom downloads folder in sidebar and two specific folders where I store my work. I thought it would be practical to put these often used folders to sidebar but the delay is annoying and it doesn´t happen when usic default sidebar folders

  26. There is a lot of useful information on the site, but it is difficult to find it. Why is there no search? google site: winaero.com works poorly

  27. Several of my Windows games for Windows 10 seems to open with the same game every time rather than a random game. Is there a way to fix this?

  28. I have used and appreciated winaero tweaker and other utilities for years and will sadly no longer do so. The number of ads you have EVERYWHERE is just sickening and makes it VERY hard to figure out what is your and what is an ad, and is just plain confusing. Thanks for your efforts, but this is just TOO MUCH.

    1. The costs of running the server, domain, hosting, time it takes to write content and to code and maintain Tweaker means the ads are necessary. I would like to point that there are no ads in my app itself.
      Well, there is a solution for you. See the following web site: https://winaerotweaker.com
      I’ve built it for app users like you.
      There is no single ad there. Exactly zero.

      1. Hi Serge,
        Thanks a lot for your great work. Is there a way to send you a question by e mail ? No body on various forums were able to answer …

  29. Winaero causing transparency bug in Win10 after change of settings – see here!
    https://imgur.com/e3xkGeL

    left pane turns opaque after using winaero

      1. Not sure yet which setting is responsible but maybe probably increase taskbar transparency!?

        Have to find out….

        1. Then it is just broken in recent releases.
          Winaero Tweaker does nothing but activates a built-in Windows feature.

          1. nothing broken since there are other apps doing just that fine – Translucent TB (MS Store)

  30. A BUG ???

    Had a problem with Tweaker.
    Went to Icons and selected strikethrough which I then applied.
    As expected, my desktop icon titles all had a strikethrough.
    I then went back to remove this strikethrough, and though I tried several times, with a sign out after each attempt, the line persisted.
    It was only when I went to Reset advanced appearance that I was able to return to normal.

  31. Hi!
    WinaeroTweaker is a great tool and helps me a lot in my day-to-day!
    With WinaeroTweaker I would like to have an option in “File Explorer” so that it is possible to change the icon of a certain group of folders within a directory.
    For example, I have several folders in a subdirectory that are symbolic links and I would like to identify these folders by changing their icons to a more appropriate image, so it would be easier to identify what kind of folders they are.
    Thank you!

  32. Thank you for this amazing software. I have a humble request: I’ve noticed that (at least on my notebook) the “old” power options – Advanced settings have disappeared.
    Here “now” (on the left ) and “before” (right):

    It would be great if you could put an option in order to restore all the settings.

    Thanks again, and a BIG CIAO from Italy!

  33. Is it possible to edit WinXmenuEditor so you can replace the Terminal items by Command Prompt items.
    I’ve added the program cmd.exe to the menu but it is not vissible in Win11

  34. When I enable classic toolbar
    1) Windows Search stops working (Both Win Key + S or the search icon in taskbar). Any way to fix?

    2) The middle click on Open Shell will no longer open Win 11 standard start

    Thanks

  35. HI.
    FYI for the last 3 or 4 emails of your newsletter I have been receiving a duplicate copy each time.
    In other words, I am receiving 2 copies of the newsletter instead of just one.
    Possibly this is happening to others too.

    Yours respectfully and gratefully for your good help and advice.

  36. Hi, I’ve been trying to replace the shortcut arrow with the new Windows 11, but it does not work: a white icon overlaps every icon on the desktop (with Windows 10 it worked)…. please, could you check that oiu? Thanks!
