If you have upgraded to Windows 8 you probably know there is no Start Menu in the new OS. This shortcoming has given a chance to many developers to come up with new apps and programs to customize the look and functions of the OS. Maintenance utilities haven’t been ignored either. The latest to show up and be admired for its performance is EnhanceMy8 – a tweaking and maintenance tool for Windows 8.
EnhanceMy8 for Windows 8
EnhanceMy8 is all-in-one tweaking and maintenance tool for Windows 8. The tool has lots of features and functions and comes in 2 versions
Like most applications, EnhanceMy8 contains tools such as registry cleaner, startup manager and more but differs in a way that it allows you to launch many handy apps instantly that are built into Windows 8 rather than searching them via the Charms menu. Moreover, when you first launch the application, it requests you to let it allow and set a system restore point so that there is no messing up with your computer settings.
Thereupon, it displays the main window. The main window shows all the system tweaking tools, optimization and customization options arranged in a neat, tabbed interface. There are in all six tabs, each storing some additional buttons. Some are available in Pro version only (Most Used Tweaks).
Gives an overview of the information about your computer hardware such the processor’s temperature (in both Fahrenheit and Celsius units), Windows 8 related OS information and other.
Lets you choose different tweaking utilities such as Disk/Registry cleaners. Registry cleaner lets you clean up the unwanted chunks and quickly fix registry errors visible. Besides, the tab offers immediate access to Processes and Services buttons. These, display in clear the running foreground and background applications.
As the name suggests, the tab allows you to have an access to system tools, system restore point creation and some other operations. I have mentioned system tools and system restore point in specific as only these are available in the free version. Others require you upgrade to a pro version.
The tab allows you to kill any non-essential processes automatically, in few seconds and disable certain startup parameters to reduce Windows boot time
Lets you change the Desktop, Taskbar, Folders, Icons and Context Menu settings as per your requirements.
When in the closed state, EnhanceMy8 doesn’t run in the background so it does not slow down the performance of your computer in any way. Plus one to the application for having this feature!
