The App Mode context menu: As you may already know, Windows 10 comes with two color schemes for Store apps. The default one is light, but there is also a darker one. You can add a special context menu to switch between them quickly.
You can change the default RDP port to what you want quickly. Use the following option.
With Winaero Tweaker 0.9, you can manage hibernation options in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Using Winaero Tweaker, you can unlock the ability to pin more than 3 contacts to the taskbar. The option can be found under Desktop & Taskbar\Pin More Contacts to Taskbar.
