Winaero Tweaker is a freeware app created by myself, Sergey Tkachenko. It is an all-in-one application that comes with dozens of options for fine-grained tuning of various Windows settings and features.
It also includes most options which were available in free standalone apps at Winaero.com and extends them as much as possible.
