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.
to restore defaults with one click.
I've created two videos to show you the power of This PC Tweaker:
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
Note: the Navigation Pane editor feature was dropped from the RTM release of This PC Tweaker 1.0 due to bugs and stability issues. It will be released as a separate app very soon. I promise. Amazing icon created by Rhor.
Wanna change the background 'wallpaper' of Windows8's Start Screen?
Wanna change the background color of Windows8's Logon Screen and Start Sceen?
Now the 'Windows 8 Start Tweaker' comes, you can make any image file (png/bmp/jpg/gif) as your default screen background, and you can also change the background color of your Start screen or logon screen. IT works for Windows 8 WDP (build 8102) only.
BTW, you can drag the image file onto the form, it really works.
If you want the image fills out the whole screen, you should make a image by yourself. The Height of the image should be doubled with the Height of your Screen Resolution.
For example, if your Screen Resolution is 1280*800, you should make a image with Height 1600, and the width is not limited.
Windows 8 Start Tweaker v1.01 is written by C++ WTL, and it is only 103kb, a portable utility. IT works for Windows 8 Developer Preview only.
