Fresh UI - Windows tweaking tool

review by ClifNotes, May 2006


Windows tweaking tools aren't new on the scene but I'd never tried this one. I found out first that it's not true freeware. You have to register at their website to use the program. They send you a download link and a license key in email. I wasn't real happy about that, but it's still free software.


After trying it out, I'm getting rid of it. I think some of the other tweak utilities are just as good without all the fuss of registering them. Microsoft makes a pretty good one called TweakUI and Snapfiles has a good selection of freeware tweaking tools too.



Here's a quote from the Fresh Devices website:

Fresh UI is a fresh solution for configuring and optimizing Windows. Loaded with hundreds of useful hidden settings in Windows XP/2000/NT/ 98/95/Me, this software covers the customizing and optimizing techniques that you'll be glad to know, such as:


  • Customizing Windows User Interface (UI)
  • Optimizing system settings
  • Optimizing hardware settings
  • Customizing Windows application settings
  • Controlling user environment with policies


Fresh UI is organized by section for easy navigation and completed with detail descriptions for easy reference.

Windows 95, Windows 95 OSR2, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP.
