Tweak Internet Explorer 9 with IE 9 Tweaker Plus

Our IE9 Tweaker v 1.0 allowed you to tweak a few settings in IE9 RC. Our Home Page Maker allows you you to customize your Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome & Opera browser home page. Now combining the best tweaks of these two apps – and more – we have now developed and released a new freeware IE9 Tweaker Plus.

IE9 Tweaker Plus allows you to tweak, customize and change over 27 settings in Internet Explorer 9 RTM, all from one single window. It offers the following tweaks:

Appearance Tweaks:

  • Show/Lock Menu Bar
  • Show/Lock Command Bar
  • Show/Lock Links Bar
  • Show/Hide Status Bar
  • Show large/small icons
  • Toggle 3D border
  • Use Clear Type fonts
  • Toggle Caret Browsing
  • Always start in full screen
  • Tweak maximum connections and downloads
  • Set maximum rows on New Tab page: 2 to 5

Security Tweaks:

  • Disable Internet Options
  • Disable Menu Bar
  • Disable Command Bar
  • Disable Links bar
  • Disable Favorites
  • Fix savings passwords issue
  • Disable full-screen
  • Disable RSS feeds pane
  • Disable Windows Search – web history indexing
  • Set InPrivate Home page
  • Create InPrivate Desktop Shortcut
  • Create InPrivate Start Menu shortcut

If you are unable to disable ClearType Font in IE9 using this app, the alternative is to disable Hardware Acceleration as Microsoft has since tied ClearType into the Accelerated Graphics. To Disable: Internet Options\Advanced Tab check, Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering.

IE9 Tweaker Plus also allows you to create a custom home page. Its Home Page Maker module allows you customize your Internet Explorer 9 home page. This is how a customized home page can look in Internet Explorer 9!

To learn more about how it works or to customize your Firefox, Chrome & Opera browser home page, you can visit Home Page Maker.

IE9 Tweaker Plus also allows you the restore all Internet Explore 9 settings to its default values. You have to first click on Restore and then click on Apply.

IE9 Tweaker Plus v 2.0 has been developed by Lee Whittington for The Windows Club. It has been tested on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit.

It is always a good idea to create a system restore point before making any changes to your system. If you wish to give feedback or need help, you may visit TWCF.
