Tweak UI

Thursday, August 11th, 2005 · No Comments

If you’re like me and separate your data from your OS & apps on your Windows machine, then the Tweak UI PowerToy is the tool is for you. Among other cool system features, it allows you to map your desktop to any drive, partition, or path. This is good since, by default, the desktop is mapped to your C drive and if your system crashes or you need to wipe your OS partition for a clean install, you don’t have to worry about losing any data you have on the desktop. You can also do lots of other cool stuff, like change the default command keys on your keyboard if it has things like Calculator, My Computer, Back, Forward, etc.

Tweak UI:

This PowerToy gives you access to system settings that are not exposed in the Windows XP default user interface, including mouse settings, Explorer settings, taskbar settings, and more.

Version 2.10 requires Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows Server 2003.

In other news, I took the hanging flower pot down to water yesterday evening and all five baby birds flew the coop. Just like that they were gone. I felt a sense of responsibility for them and worried when one little guy was wandering around in the road a bit before fluttering across the street to the neighbor’s yard. Nature is amazing. The birds had simply stared back at me many times before as I watered their sanctuary, but yesterday it was suddenly time to leave. So they did.

I think I’ll miss having those little fellas around. We had even named them: Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, Jason Varitek, Eddie Haskell, and Enrico. Godspeed, my little feathered friends.
