Winaero Tweaker 0.8 release notes:

You can now export your changes to a file and import them on another computer or after a build upgrade (hello, Windows Insiders). Once you have exported your changes, you can apply them on another PC or in a different build of the same Windows version. There are some important things you need to know about import and export of tweaks in Winaero Tweaker. Please refer the following article: How to import and export tweaks.

Fixed done in this release:

  • The tweak to disable the Extract All context menu uses a better method.
  • Fxed a long-standing bug which made the "Open Command Prompt here" command default to Libraries. Applied a workaround to prevent other custom context menu commands from becoming the default for any file system object.
  • The Selection Limit tweak now shows a request to sign out from your user account. It is necessary but was missing.
  • Fixed tons of minor mistakes and made the overall source code quality much better due to refactoring I had to perform for the import and export feature.
