2. The User Interface > 8. Customize the GUI with Tweak UI

Customize the GUI with Tweak UI

Want to bend XP’s interface to your will without getting your hands into the Registry or having to excavate through menus three levels deep? Then get this supremely useful freebie from Microsoft and create your own customized version of XP.

There are countless ways to customize XP’s interface, including Registry hacks and menus and options hidden four layers deep. But if you’re the kind of person who lives in the express lane, juices up on double espressos, and wants to hack away at the interface fast, you need Tweak UI.

Tip

Download Tweak UI for free from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp. It’s part of a suite of free, unsupported utilities from Microsoft called XP PowerToys, but it’s far and away the best one.
