The number of tools that can be used to tweak and customize Windows does nothing but increase, and the claims made by many of these utilities can be difficult to believe.
So a program that claims to be the Ultimate Windows Customizer is giving itself a lot to live up to – but it turns out that the title is well-deserved as the tool perfectly balances the tweaks that make a difference to system performance with those that allow you to stamp your mark on the operating system.
Tasks such as editing the context menu or tweaking the shortcuts that appear in the navigation pane of Explorer have long been possible by editing the registry, but this is not something that everyone is comfortable with. Ultimate Windows Customizer eliminates the need to delve into the darker recesses of your computer if you are uncomfortable in doing so, but this does not mean that you are compromising on features and options.
The program makes it easy to add new entries to the context menu, change settings for libraries, skin Windows Media Player with your own custom background image and even hide individual items in the taskbar. If you like the idea of choosing a custom button for the Start Orb, you can do so with this application. A backup of system settings is made every time the program is launched so it’s easy to experiment with different settings and reverse them if you change your mind about them.
Another great things about the tool is that it is an on-going project, and new features and options will be added over time. With this in mind, and to avoid the need to have to keep checking back to see when a new version has been released, the Ultimate Windows Customizer will automatically check for updates when you start it up. It is easy to dismiss programs like this as ‘just another tweaking tool’, but it is well worth downloading this one to see what it could do for you.
