TweakUI for Win95/98/ME/NT/2000
TweakUI allows you to "tweak
the UI, the User-Interface", to fine-tune the
display and some
operation, including some networking options (and therefor I
include it n my website).
TweakUI has a long history:
First part of the Windows95 PoyerToys available as download from
the Microsoft website as
"unsupported" utility, it was
included on the Windows98 first edition CD-ROM, but not anymore
on the Windows98 Second Edition CD-ROM or on Windows ME.
Also the download locations on the Microsoft website has changed
several times, so the
