Wintoys is a free app that lets you access tons of hidden features on your PC
I’ve been using a Mac for over ten years now, but I still have contact with Windows PCs. And I think I just found the app I need to help me manage those computers much easier than before. Wintoys is a free application available for download from the Microsoft Store. But considering its many features, it certainly seems like the kind of app one would pay a premium for.
Saw at Rescue tractorWintoys seems to be a Swiss Army Knife for Windows 10 and Windows 11 computers.
The app offers various useful tools to manage your computer, manage Windows health, and improve overall performance.
Wintoys takes a look at the hardware, as some of these screenshots show. You get detailed information about the specifications, including CPU and RAM usage and the version of Windows. This data should help you optimize your computer and get rid of apps and processes that are hogging CPU, GPU and RAM power. That’s especially useful if you rock an older laptop whose battery life isn’t what it used to be.
In addition, Wintoys has a Boost feature that allows you to optimize the overall performance. That includes managing the startup apps that run the moment you turn on the laptop. The app will even tell you how long it takes to boot your laptop or PC.
In addition, Wintoys tells you how many apps you have installed and lets you remove unwanted programs that you don’t even use. This is handy if you have no idea what your local limited edition store is all about. There’s also a Declutter feature to help you get rid of junk files you might not need.
Quick access to Repair commands for your current installation is also important. Commands like system file checker (SFC) and check disk (CHKDSK) are available without going through the Windows command prompt. However, you may not use these commands that much, especially if you are not familiar with them.
Wintoys repair features also include support for Windows updates that allow you to install new releases. Another handy feature is the ability to restart the graphics driver, which can remove display flickering problems.
Finally, Wintoys delivers a few hidden Windows settings in one place, and I think this is one of the best features of the app. The Tweaks tab includes Privacy and Notifications settings, which are the first Windows settings I customize when dealing with a new Windows PC.
By customizing the ads experience, I’m stopping all data sharing that Microsoft wants you to agree to. And I usually look for privacy settings through the operating system settings app. Wintoys seems to make the process easier.
There’s also a God Mode feature here that lets you put an icon on your desktop that covers more than 200 settings. To get started, you’ll need to download Wintoys from the Microsoft Store at this link.
