Winaero Tweaker

After years of development, I decided to release an all-in-one application which will include most options available in my free Winaero apps and extend it as much as possible. I would like to introduce Winaero Tweaker - universal tweaker software which supports Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.

Note: the set of available options will depend on the operating system version you are running.
Version 0.17.1 is released on May 21, 2020.
