and (among many other tweaks), it has some check boxes under "additional tweaks" that allow you to easily add (or subsequently remove) "Move to folder," "Copy to folder" and "Take Ownership" to the explorer right click context menu. I find these to be very convenient to have and use them all the time.
Generally I don't like tweaking OS's, had too many bad experiences already with that. But I will give it a try (you'll never know, it you don't try), thanks for the link.

thanks harpua.
tried Ultimate Windows Tweaker v2...the 'Copy to Folder' and 'Move to Folder' are useful to get things done fast... all the other 'Additional Tweaks' are also quite useful.

Glad you guys like it. You can run system restore right from the app before making any mods (can't hurt, just in case) but I have found the app to be very safe to use, although I have only used it to make very minor context menu changes so far.

Btw, if you want to thank me, don't forget about the "rep" scales (upper right corner of post, middle icon).

it's not a perfect list yet, but you may learn a bit more about services to disable, or better yet, switch to manual so they only start if an app requests it.
Thanks Mickey, that's really helpful

If you're on a laptop and have many windows open in a separate window, everything gets pushed to a single icon instead of multiple ones(unless there is an option i have overseen which is pretty likely so).
I think i got so used to xp, the change is taking more than it needs to.
if you goto taskbar properties, there is an option you can change to only combine taskbar icons when full, this will make the programs in the taskbar look like they used to in vista/xp instead of the icon view, and also avoids combining icons except when you have many programs running. for me thats the setting I like, because I am used to the vista/xp taskbar style..

i also really don't like how vista and win7 explorer have no icons. wtf is MSFT thinking? i found a great way to get them back, but it doesn't work with win7 yet, only vista.

it's called qttabbar

you don't know by any chance of a tool that brings the "upper folder"button back?

or the "cut" "copy" "paste" buttons?

Instead of telling you what I don't like, I'll tell you what I do like.

1. When you have extensions enabled and go to change a filename, the extension isn't highlighted.
2. Having a search in the start menu.

That's about all I can think of right now.

Delete button would be nice too.
