Mapped network drives REMOVE

Download Tweat UI, part of Powertoys (32bit only?)
In tweak UI, you can remove drives from explorer among many other things...

Tweak UI gives you access to a number of settings that are hidden away in Windows. It is part of the oddly named PowerToys utilities that are provided by Microsoft

Tweak UI allows you to change the way Windows looks and works. For instance, you can change things like the speed at which the mouse wheel scrolls and if a specific user should be automatically logged in whenever you start up Windows (a big timesaver if you are the only person to use a PC, and hate having to type your password every time you reboot).

It can also assign commands to keys in Windows Explorer; a big plus if you frequently have to copy lots of files.

Windows XP users: TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe link

Tweak User Interface(UI) - Powertoys Module
The Tweak UI Power Toy is designed to allow you to customize the look of your Space. Once you add the Tweak UI Power Toy to your Space you can use it to control colors, module borders and transparency, and the background image’s placement and presence. Granular control combined with existing Spaces layout and module configuration allows for almost endless customizability and personalization.
Follow these steps to add this Power Toy to your Space:
  1. Log into Passport and Edit your Space.
  2. In the Address bar of your web browser add the text “&powertoy=tweakomatic” to the end of the displayed URL.
  3. Click the Go button next to your web browser address bar.
  4. Once the page has finished reloading, click on the Customize tab in your Space.
  5. In the Modules drop down menu in the Customize tab there should be a listing for PowerToy: Tweak UI. Click the word Add next to it and then click the Save button
64-bit version of TweakUI for Itanium processors:
TweakUI.exe about half way down on the right there's a link for Tweak UI for Itanium™-based systems, actually, here it is! Itanium is Intel's name for there first 64bit processors. If anyone has a link for TweakUI for Vista or any info, please mail to:

The x64 version (refuses to work on amd dual core?) at:
Download TweakUI 64-Bit Edition 2.2 - NeoSmart Technologies.
Once there, go to the bottom of the page and click "Download"

Today, Tweak UI is the best tweaking tool out there for the important changes, and Microsoft has refused to provide official support for it. While that is not an issue, and there are hundreds of support websites on the web, the fact that Microsoft has not yet released a version compatible with the ever-growing true 64-bit PCs is.
Starting with the AMD series and the upcoming Intel series, x64 brings new power, and requires updated programs. So, if you are looking for Tweak UI for AMD 64-Bit processors or Windows 64-Bit Edition, download it here!
The optimizations currently hold only for AMD and Intel EM64T's. What this translates to is no Itanium support. Microsoft has realeased its own version for Itanium, which you can download at their Powertoy website. Please note, this will not run on Windows x86: you will encounter a series of errors, and it just wont work.
Supports Windows XP and 2k3 only.
