7 Tools for Tweaking Windows 7

Description

The DownloadSquad blog recently posted a list of 7 different utilities that let you tweak and change the various settings in Windows 7. It’s surprising that there are so many software programs already available, considering that the OS hasn’t even publicly launched yet. I have to admit, I haven’t tried all these utilities yet – I’m actually pretty happy with Windows 7 out-of-the-box – but if I was going to install one it would probably be EnhanceMySe7en, if only for the sheer number of features it offers which include things like a CCleaner-like function, a shortcut creator, disk cleaning tools, and more. It also works on 64-bit additions, which is a nice touch that not all the others offer.  I just might have to play with that one over the weekend.

Other utilities that made the list are: Little Tweaker, Ultimate Windows Tweaker, XDN Tweaker, Windows 7 Manager, and TweakNow Power Pack 2009. As it turns out, some of those are actually Vista utilities that work with Windows 7. If you’re familiar with any of these tools yourself, share your experiences in the comments!
