Windows8 Winset 2012
Well-organized and intuitive interface
Before rushing to get it deployed on your system, be sure you are running Windows 8, since the application is strictly dedicated to it. The main window is cleverly organized, with an upper toolbar hosting all major categories you can look into, while a side panel splits the selected category in corresponding sections.
Various system details displayed
The first few tabs only provide thorough details about your system, with a dedicated one giving you the possibility to find out everything there is from general system info to network adapter configuration, as well as input and audio. These can be saved either as a plain text file or in a structured Excel document.
Optimize and clean all system areas
On the other hand, the application is capable of cleaning or optimizing nearly any area of your computer that does not interfere with an antivirus' job. With several optimization tools available, you can manage startup items, set the computer to automatically log in with your credentials, select which services to run, as well as a memory optimization utility which can be set to automatically trigger in a recurrent process after a given amount of time.
Furthermore, it's best to clean your hard disk drive and system before optimization, and the application has just the right tools for this task. With a few mouse clicks, you can set the application to clean Windows system trace files, browsing data, remove junk items, or scan registries in order to clean them up.
Customize your workspace
What's more, you can use the application for visual tweaking as well. The rich dedicated tab offers the possibility to fully customize the way icons are arranged or displayed throughout your desktop. For more diversity, you can enable up to four virtual desktops in order to cleverly sort out windows you work with.
To end with
All in all, Windows8 Winset might convince you to keep it around for more than just a try, because it manages to provide various tools that can make your system as good as new. It covers most areas that constantly need your attention, so if you're using Windows 8 you might want to take it for a spin.
