Windows 7 Little Tweaker is a software allowing you to customize your Windows 7 32 bit operating system in a few clicks. After you have completed the installation of the software, you will need to run it as an administrator or you'll get unexpected errors. In order to run this program as an administrator, you need to right-click on its icon and select "Run as Administrator". In the main window, there is a list of tweaks you can activate, for example, one allows you to open a command line from the context menu, another one adds an option in the context menu allowing you to modify permissions of a file in one click, etc. Even though the list of tweaks is a bit short with only fourteen entries, this program will be quite useful for you, because the available tweaks are good. If you want to cancel a tweak, because some like the "disable UAC" could be a security issue, then you can simply uncheck the box corresponding to the tweak you are willing to disable. If you don't know what a tweak corresponds to, then you can click on it and you'll be given a short description of it. The software itself approximately takes 1 MB and tweaks you activate will barely use your memory. The developer claims the software is portable and requires no installation but that's wrong: you need to install the software prior to executing it.
Bottom-line: Great software allowing you to enable useful tweaks, but there is only a limited number of tweaks. Be careful when enabling the tweak "Disable UAC": it can create a security issue for your computer.
