Guys, let me introduce the This PC Tweaker 1.0 RTM app! This is final release and it is not just good, it is WONDERFUL
First, I would like to say that Windows 8.1, Windows 8 and Windows 7 support is implemented. The separate version of Windows 7 is finally available. With This PC Tweaker, you will be able to perform the following customizations:
to add any folder to the Computer/This PC folder. Really any!
to remove any folder from the Computer/This PC folder.
to change the icon for any folder inside Computer/This PC.
to add any shell location like Administrative tools, God Mode, Network Connections
you can pin or unpin Computer/This PC items from the Navigation Pane of Explorer in Windows 8.1, Windows 8 and even in Windows 7!
You can remove or add any item from the Folders category inside the Computer/This PC folder.

The change log: * The application was rewritten from scratch. + Added ability to add any folder + Added ability to change icons + Added navigation pane pinning support for Windows 7 + Added proper Windows x64 handling + Added translations support * Fixed many bugs
