It’s common knowledge that Windows ships with a number functions and hidden features that are kept away from the average user. However, some of these key features enable you to tweak and improve your copy of Windows, often depending on the hardware you have installed on your system.
Windows Vista is no different and enables you to tweak many of the hidden features, as well as optimise your system to maximise performance in order to run Vista more successfully. For instance, did you know that you can create a RAM drive that enables you to store and access file almost instantaneously? If you have enough memory, you could easily allocate a portion for RAM. You could then put some of your startup files in this RAM drive, so your system starts more quickly.
Other tweaks and optimisations include support for automatically cleansing your Registry, improving your Internet connection depending on your OS and how you manage automatic system updates.
Totalidea’s TweakVI is a tool that will open many of the hidden features. As it is a plugin based system, further plugins will be added in the future or are available as a paid-for item, if you purchase TweakVI Premium.
