Windows 8 may not have been released yet, but there is the developer preview version available for free download by anyone who has an interest in the upcoming version of Microsoft’s operating system. No version of Windows would be complete without a selection of tweaking tools to enable users to stamp their mark on the software, and Metro UI Tweaker for Windows 8 is one of a small but increasing number of such utilities that are starting to creep out.
This is a fairly basic and limited program, but as the name would suggest, it has been designed only with the aim of allowing for tweaks to the Metro user interface. Despite the fairly limited number of options available, Metro UI Tweaker for Windows 8 includes a number of settings that are likely to be of interest to any early adopters.
If you have failed to fall in love with the Metro interface and ribbon toolbars that are to be found throughout Windows 8, this handy tool enables you to disable them altogether. While for many people, these features are the reason to install Windows 8 in the first place, for others they are merely eye candy.
The Start menu can also be tweaked by adding options such as Log Off, Sleep and Shut Down, or by adding links to any programs that you use on a regular basis. While these settings could be put in place by tinkering with system files or the registry, but turning to this tweaking tool eliminates the need for this.
