Winaero Tweaker 0.2.1 released

Again, a new milestone for Winaero Tweaker is here as part of its weekly release cycle. This release contains some notable changes and features Windows 10 build 10041 support. Read further to get more details.
Winaero Tweaker v0.2.1There were no bugs reported or detected, so that's good news. I added the following new features:

New feature: Enable Jump Lists for Start menu in Windows 10 build 10041
enable jump lists
You can read how it works HERE. I just implemented a very simple UI to save your time.

Update: The "Old Start Menu" feature is blacklisted in build 10041 because Microsoft decided to keep the old Start menu only for the Server branch of their operating system. So, the old Start menu is inaccessible in recent builds.

New feature: Default Drag-n-Drop action

Allows you to set the default action which will be performed when you drag-n-drop a file or a folder with the left mouse button in Explorer. This is actually my Drag-n-Drop Editor app merged with Tweaker.

New feature: Drive Letters

Allows you to set how to show drive letters relative to drive labels: before or after the labels, or hide drive letters completely.

Update: XMouse allows you to tweak mouse wheel scrolling behavior

Thanks to our reader "du22y" who suggested this tweak, I have added the ability to change mouse scroll behavior. You can set one of these modes:

  • Scroll only active window
  • Scroll active window and inactive Modern apps
  • Scroll any window (active or inactive, regardless of its type)

That's it.

  1. Finally the much needed scroll inactive window, the missing Xwindow feature on Windows, thank you!!! However it still doesnt work for IE if IE is the inactive, can you fix that?

          1. Can you try the following:
            1. Tick the checkbox in Tweaker.
            2. Run gpupdate /force in the elevated command prompt.
            3. Lock workstation to check if it is locked with the Lock screen or not.
            I guess it can be the group policy issue.

          2. this also doesn’t help. The same issue occurs in Windows 10 TP 10041 x64 in German

          3. Ok. Let’s try to check what it does for you.
            When you tick the checkbox, it should do the following:
            HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization
            NoLockScreen=dword:1
            Can you check please if that NoLockScreen parameter exists and set to 1?
            Thanks in advance.

          4. I checked the registry under Win10 and the value is set to 1, but the Tweaker doesn’t show the checkbox.

            But it makes no difference, I still see the lock screen all the time.

          5. The entry is set, but the tweaker doesn’t show the checkbox:

            https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5749744/Bilder/winaero.com/WinAero_Tweaker_LockScreen.png

            and I still see the Lockscreen all the time I logon.

        1. hopefully this time my comment shows up. The DWORD is set to 1, but the checkbox in th tweaker is not set. But I still see the LockScreen everytime.

          1. Hell.
            Wait, can you check if you have the same parameter here:
            HKCU\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization
            Maybe HERE Nolockscreen exists and set to zero?

          2. me, too. I also tried the GP Editor, but the lockscreen still shows up. I’ll update to 10049 later this week and look if this fixes it.
