    Default display resolution using UWT

    Thank you for this great tweaker.

    Suggestion:

    Please add scroll bars or sth similar so UWT could be displayed correctly (entirely) at low display resolutions.

    I know most users won't be using 800 x 600 resolution, but low resolution is default for Windows Safe Mode.

    In my particular case, I use this resolution by default, and even moving the window to the upper-left corner, the right side and the lower side of the UI are not displayed. So, using this resolution, I can't use several options displayed near the right side border, and I can't click "apply". I even hid the Windows Task Bar, but it was not enough, and there is no method to change the UI window size.

    The workaround was to temporarily change the resolution to a higher one, then run UWT, apply the changes, close UWT and return to my usual resolution.

    But this workaround could be not an option if running in Windows Safe Mode, or for users with accessibility difficulties.

    That's why I would like to request to make UWT somehow fully compatible with low display resolutions (maybe adding horizontal and vertical scroll bars?).

    Additional info:
    -Vista Home Basic 32 bits SP1
    -Intel 3100 onboard video
    -17" monitor
    -IE 7
    -currently at 800 x 600, 32 bits colors, 96 DPI

    Thank you in advance,
    Ady

    Thanks Ady for suggestion! It's rare to find, ppl are working lower than 1024x768 resolution on Windows Vista/Windows 7. It can be cosidered for future release.

    Post Version 1.2.0.0 LOOKS Nice but doesn't do Anything

    Hi,
    Being new to UWT, maybe I am missing something but after installation of this program it does NOTHING

    I am running Windows Vista Ultimate Service Pack 2 and EVERY Tweek I attempt fails.

    I tried even the simplest Tweek, to display the Windows Version on the Deslktop, and I get the same message I get whenever I attempt ANY Tweek.
    That is the error message that the "Value does not fall within the expected range".


    What value is there for a check box that asks that the Windows Version to be displayed that it could be out of expected range? What expected range would that be

    Unfortunately, the error display box also shows the "Send Error Report" button as greyed out so I am unable to provide any documentation to The Windows Clubhouse to help debug this problem either.

    So I have a non-functioning program and no way to provide any documentation of what the problem is. Sorry about that.

    I did delete the UWT directory and re-downloaded it again in hopes that something may have gone wrong during the original download but the re-downloaded copy of the program does exactly the same as the original download did.

    Any thoughts on how to get UWT working would be greatly appreciated since Windows Vista needs all the tweeking it can get in order to make it more "responsive" than the original is.

    I don't even want to think what Windows 7 would be like after living with Vista Ultimate since the first Beta release was issued to me. At the rate Microsoft is "improving" thier operating sysyem, it ought to be ready for human consumption by about the year 2125...

    When you say you "installed" it, what exactly do you mean? This program does not "install" it is a user interface.

    I have never run into this problem in Vista or W7. Just for kicks and grins try right clicking it and running as admin.

    Why don't you try the latest version of UWT ie 2.0

    see the change log, i think these bugs are covered because i m too using Windows Vista SP2.

    Hi,

    This error message is appearing when trying to access the System Performance "tab."

    Default Unhandled exception on Network Tweaks page

    I am a new user of UWT, running the latest version in Vista Home Basic 32-bit, no SPs, IE8.

    Whenever I click on the menu to open the Network Tweaks page, I get an unhandled exception, details given below. If I opt to continue, the page opens, but the Apply button is inactive so that I cannot put any of the tweaks into effect. This issue is specific to the Network Tweaks page - all other pages open and function as they should. I currently have no other problems anywhere on my system.

    Please advise me how to deal with this. Many thanks.

    Details of unhandled exception:

    Thumbs up Congrats Ramesh, your tool is once again featured in lifehacker!!



    Windows only: Ultimate Windows Tweaker adds new features to an already excellent tool for tweaking all of the hidden Windows settings you normally can't access.

    We've featured this application here before, but the latest release adds even more useful tweaks like disabling Aero Shake, Snap, or Preview in Windows 7, customizing the amount of items on Jump Lists, and it even automatically removes tweaks that are unavailable for the operating system you are running—so you won't see options that aren't available to you. Since the utility doesn't require installation it also makes for a handy addition to your flash drive toolkit.
