Winaero Tweaker 1.63 is available

I am releasing Winaero Tweaker 1.63. It includes several new features and some fixes. Here we go.

  • The app should now properly detect the Windows version, including Windows 11 24H2.
  • The installer allows you to skip the addition of the Start menu folder.
  • Added the option to permanently enable the Ribbon UI in File Explorer on Windows 11.
  • An option to disable ads in the Start menu, in the "Recommended" section. The option is in Behavior > Ads and Unwanted apps.
  • Individual Edge tweaking options are now live on a new page, and they are greatly expanded. Check out Microsoft Edge > Disable Annoyances and Bloat. There, you will find settings to disable sidebar, tips and promotions on desktop, prompts to set Edge as your default browser, floating Bing bar on desktop, remove news and "quick links" from the New tab page, and much, much more.
  • You can now remove the "Edit with Clipchamp" context menu entry.
  • The Tools \ System Restore page now has an option to quickly restart the device to Windows Recovery Environment.
  • I have fixed a few tweaks that stopped working in 24H2, such as add/remove This PC folders.
  • I have removed the "Folder options" page as Microsoft is no longer going to remove those.
  • Removed the "test" message from the Hide Settings pages option (I use MessageBox debugging, yeah-yeah).
  • There are a few small bugfixes.

  1. Any chance you can upgrade and integrate the One Click Firewall as this has become a toolbox of sorts?

    Use the shit out of it but have to use context menu edits to move it to its own section and AWAY from run as administrator since I accidentally click on them on occasion :D

  2. Hi. I think it’s broken. Receiving all kinds of errors, including messages about internet connection (unfinished transfer), office 365 (outlook), and eset (virusscanner). Maybe you can check?

  3. Thanks for the new Edge stuff. The built-in flag for disabling recommendations is now gone and they are (were :)) really annoying.
