Hello all,

I'm making a little tweaking tool called Small Tweak Performances
Do you have any suggestions and do you understand the current tweaks?

Here's current screenshot: (There's coming a bit more)

Like the look of it. Makes stuff a bit easier. I'd use it for sure.

Examples? Do you mean I should divide to tab pages or something like that?

Lol, no I meant the app would make the stuff I do easier - not make the app easier. Layout is perfect although you might consider bolding the categories (eg. "Drive Letter" and "Start Menu"). Great work - can't wait!

Edit: Oh and btw not sure if this is possible but can there be an option to add a new library to the start menu?

It looks nice, just adds thumbnail fix, sometime photo and video are not shown as thumbnails for some reasons and even fixing folders properties do not help this.

8-) You do great work, as for this tweaker I use something similar called Ultimate Windows Tweaker, but I would have liked to see a bunch of other tweaks included in a package, such as:
1. To clear the icon cache when it gets cluttered and a different icon is showing rather than the actual.
2. To change the icon display size.
3. To add a custom context menu.
4. To control which context menu items are visible.
5. To delete a context menu item....etc
:idea: I can list many suggestions but the easiest way for you will be to consider that now XQDC X-setup has gone out of business someone must continue to provide the same tweaks that great program was offering. Actually it is not quite compatible with Windows 7 (it works but with problems) so another task would be to make those tweaks compatible with Windows 7.
I would definitely make heavy use of such a program. I hope I was of some assistance.

The first suggestion I think I could easily add, I'm not sure is it possible to do the second one

3,4,5 are on work on different program, It got a little complicated so I haven't done it yet, but here's screenshot of AdSevenContextMenuModifier, the another one is from adding new key.

That looks good. I guess it must be getting very complicated when you have to include many different tweaks in one program. The point is that the computer gets cluttered with many different small programs and it is also becoming hard to remember which one does what. But hey, keep up the good work. 8-)

I can also do a once over for English translation as you would want consistency like "Drive Letter First" and "Drive Letter Last".

Also, I'd revise the name as it's not gramatically correct (Small Tweak Performances)

I recommend something like:

Small Performance Tweaker
Performance Tweaker
Windows Performance Tweaker
Windows Tweaker
Small Windows Tweaker

etc.

I'd love to see a tabbed interface with logical sections but... one step at a time :)
