Since the news spread that Microsoft has released the download links for its upcoming OS Windows8 quite many of you must have had already downloaded and installed Windows 8 developer preview. Now as the Microsoft says Windows8 is basically for new generation of devices like Touchscreen and Tablets so when using Windows8 in a normal Laptop without touchscreen capabilities it at times proved to be a very messy stuff.
The new Metro UI and Explorer ribbon UI can at times make even the easiest tasks on your system like Shutdown and search to be painful So if you want to Disable Windows 8 Metro UI And Ribbon UI just get the small tool,MetroUI Tweaker, developed by LeeWhittington.
MetroUI Tweaker is designed to tweak a few settings that are unavailable to users.
- Disable Metro Start Menu:
Disables only Metro Start Menu Screen. This function requires editing a System File. It does not remove the file.
- Disable Metro Ribbon:
Disables only the Metro Ribbon UI. This function I discovered myself. It requires Taking Ownership of a System File. It does not remove this file.
- Disable Metro Start Menu and Ribbon:
Disables the Metro Start Menu UI, Ribbon UI, Metro Task Manager UI and the Lock Screen.
- Enable Metro Start Menu and Ribbon:
Reenables all available Metro UI options.
- Add Power Options to the Metro Start Menu Screen:
Logoff, Switch User, Lock, Sleep, Restart and Shutdown
- Add any Application/File to the Metro UI Start Menu Screen:
Some Applications/Files may not be available to you to add to the Metro Start Menu Screen. This program allows you to add those Applications/Files which would otherwise be unavailable.
On first run the program will generate a folder in your Windows Directory labeled Metro UI Tools. This folder is to keep your Power Option apps in places without worrying about them having to be moved.
Once generated and the files are unpacked from the program, do not remove the folder or the Power Apps from this folder as these options will no longer be available and may generate errors.
