June 08, 2001, 12:00 AM — Reader James K. suggests an alternative to Tweak UI.
"Although I like the Tweak UI tool, and have used it for a long
time, I have recently come across a much more powerful and
comprehensive tool called X-Setup. This is a free utility, which
is Web enabled for updates. Assuming they are interested in really
getting inside NT/2K, this tool will give your readers the power
they never thought possible.
Also, please remember to run the X-Update function before you
start looking for all the tweak options/features, as the Web
update adds extra useful tweaks. Having run the X-Update, set
aside one to two hours to check through all the possible tweaks
you can make with this app. It's pretty impressive to say the
Thanks for the tip, James.
We have also looked at X-Setup and agree that it is an impressive tool.
We must caution everyone that it requires a bit more caution than does
Tweak UI though. So, if you decide to try X-Setup, then make sure that
you understand what changes you're making before you make them.
