Winaero Tweaker 1.55 allows restoring removed checkboxes in Folder options on Windows 11

I am happy to release Winaero Tweaker 1.55. I have found an easy way to restore the removed checkboxes in Window 11's Folder options. So I have updated Winaero Tweaker with the ability to restore the missing options back. Also, I have fixed a typo in the Icon max cache size tweak, so it finally works properly. Finally, I fixed a crash in the "Change Startup Sound" option.

  1. Dear Sergey,

    Windows Search has Win+S as an excellent keyboard shortcut. But I can’t find a command-line shortcut for it. Is there such a CMD?

    If not, could you possibly give us such a command-line shortcut?

  2. Winaero 1.55 on W11 Pro, 22H2.

    I use Winaero to change the Windows Startup Sound to a .wav file of my choice. However, I notice that when I now do so, a run of sfc/scannow reports a repair made and reboot required for the file imageres.dll.mun, which I understand is the sounds and icons file for Windows.

    It seems that changing the sound causes the imageres file to be corrupted and to require repair, and I shall therefore not use Winaero to make this change, pending comment(s).

  3. Hello my dude!

    I have a big problem with this latest version. Apparently, when you remove the blur fromthe lock screen, it also somehow breaks it when you reboot, like making it cut half the spinning dots animation and sending you very early to desktop without even a fade out animation. Of course this is weird because even Windows Search hasn’t started when this happens. I haven’t disabled animations or anything, and restoring back the setting to show blur makes no change, It keeps looking broken.

    Any idea what is going on here? How can I fix it back?


  4. The default font of winaero is too small any chance of adding an option to increase the size of the font im sure many other users would agree.
    thanks for a great tool.

      1. Hi,
        Nice program, I use it a lot.
        One thing, I find it’s font size too small too.
        I get the rest of Windows looking how I like it, but then Tweaker’s own font is too small.
        A minor thing… the rest of everything in Tweaker works fine thanks.
