Today, I am happy to release a new version of my all-in-one app, Winaero Tweaker. As always, it comes with plenty of new features and fixes. Here is the change log.
Winaero Tweaker 06010Winaero Tweaker is an unplanned release. I had no plans to release it, because I am actively working to add the import/export feature so any changes you make can be saved and restored later. But I received a number of requests to add certain features. Here's what's added to this release of Winaero Tweaker.

The ability to enable clock with seconds on the taskbar in Windows 10:

        1. Hi. Sorry for the delay.
          Yep it should work in home, but the feature itself may stop working in recent Windows 10 builds.
          A number of users report that it doesn’t work any more in recent Windows 10 releases.

  1. Hello Sergey!!! WT is my favorite tool.

    I recommend in the next update, under the section *** Customize Quick Access Item ***
    adding *** Customize Libraries Item *** .


  2. Can you please add the ability to set a custom theme for Universal apps? Also will setting a custom theme for Universal apps like the Settings app work in Creators Update?

  3. I love this software– thank you! Would be great if there were a way to disable the default lock screen – the one that appears not when you lock with Win+L but when you boot the machine. Is there at least a way to change its background picture?

  4. Sergey, I’ve rememvered one thing I wanted to ask you if it’s posible to add in Winaero Tweaker – option to disable Automatic Folder Type Discovery. This is really annoying feature since Windows Vista came. Nowadays I’m using registry file with this content:
    ” Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    ; Reset and delete all saved folder customizations and settings.
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU]
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags]

    ; Turn off Vista auto folder type template discovery.
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell]

    ; Modify the storage space to 10000 for saving of up to 10000 folder settings.
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell]
    “BagMRU Size”=dword:00002710 “.

    I would be really happy if you can add this option in your program. Best regarts!

    1. Sorry, this request was lost. Re-added it to my To-do list.
      Will be implemented in the next version, I will start working on the next version from this tweak.

  5. Great little product, Sergey!

    While I haven’t used all the features you have packed in WT I have looked at them. All very cool.

    Is there any thought to a being able to ‘tweak’ the theme sounds, like the start sound? Just an idea…

    1. It is not possible any more. The required file now has the digital signature. We cannot change the sound stored there.
      The tweaker app this option:
      Startup Sound Changer in Winaero Tweaker
      But it works only in Windows 7. Windows 8 and above doesn’t allow to change the startup sound.

  6. Hello sir i was wondering if you can add one small fuction to your awesome tool that is the ability to flip the drag function of folders and files as you might know the left drag button copies/cuts the files to another location depending upon the partition and the right mouse button bring an drop down option menu when you drag the files/folder.

    Thus i was wondering if you can bring that drop down option with the left mouse click .

    Thank you for your time.

    1. Hi.
      Thanks for the suggestion, but I afraid it won’t be possible to re-assign this feature from the right mouse button to the left one.

  7. Hello sir thanks for your previous reply i was wondering if you could make a function in which i can export the configuration of the settings that i have made (Which also includes the favorites) as a file. and whenever i want to add the same configuration i can select the file and import the settings

    Also if it is possible can you add a function in which you could add an option on the right click menu to calculate the md5 and sha1 for eg:-

    and one more thing where is the search function on your site i found out that the only way to search you have to type in url like or so and then only it comes.

    Hope you can add these features………..thank you

  8. I’m running Windows 10 Pro English x64 version 1607 and “Stop unwanted apps” and “Disable driver updates” don’t work!

  9. Where is the change start up sound? Would also be nice to be able to change the sound when Windows restarts or shuts down. I have edited the registry to make those “logon, logoff, system exit” etc sounds available in the control panel and I have chosen one that I have always like, from “Start Trek” that the computer lady says “Initiating Shutdown Procedures”. Plays on my dual boot systems with XP Pro, but can’t seem to get it to stick with Windows 10.

    1. It is not possible any more. The required file now has the digital signature. We cannot change the sound stored there.
      The tweaker app this option:
      Startup Sound Changer in Winaero Tweaker
