64-Bit Microsoft Powertoys for Windows XP and Server 2003

This utility, although from Microsoft, does not seem to be available for download from Microsoft. The current version is a pre-release (Beta). One should not assume from the file name that this utility will only run on AMD systems - this evaluation was done by installing it on an Intel EM64T system.

The installation was very straightforward and a shortcut to the application was placed on the Start Menu. Unlike the old Tweak UI, there is no Control Panel icon.

One of the first things many Windows users do after installation of Windows XP is to remove the shortcut arrow from the desktop icons. Until this program was made available, the only way to do that in Windows x64 versions was with a registry edit

Yes! Works great ^*^ !

My x64 started displaying wrong icons, with TweakUI x64 I am now able to rebuild the icons. :yesnod:

Problem with Windows displaying wrong icons is; it gets worse over time. I had to re-install x64 in the past to fix it. :eek:

My fear that that will happen again is gone with TweakUI for x64. :whistle

Microsoft if you read this, I liked all your Powertoys. I would be very happy to see them all for x64 on Microsoft.com We all would I guess.

Kindest regards,

I don't believe this is available. I've never been able to find any.
