Has anyone ever used any MS Power toys, and if so could you recommend a small list of the most effective and easy to use that will not mess up the system. I have heard that the gold standard is Tweak UI and that you should get it on your system before MS puts them out to pasture, in case it is ever wanted. I just want to know if it is worth it go get them on my system or not. Thanks for any suggestions that are offered. J.B.
Stuartli At present,I have; TweakUI, Desktop Manager, Power Calculator, ClearType Tuner, and CalculatorPlus. I am trying to decide between the two calculators so the jury is still out onthat one. I hear tell that TweakUI should be used carefully or it will mess your system up, is this true or not? ClearType and Desktop Manager I am going to keep for sure as I like them both, so if you could let me know about TweakUI I would appreciate it very much. Thanks. J.B.
TweakUI should be used as appropriate - an alternative is Fresh UI from click here (of FreshDownload fame), which is constantly updated or Tweak-XP Pro from click here (of Firetune Firefox fame) which can be used in demo form for a while.
Personally I prefer to do any system configuration manually...:-)
