Just looking for some feedback from those that know more then myself. I am currently using WPD for tweaking privacy settings and recently read an article on UWT5. My question to those that use either is, do you use both or do you find it better to use one or the other? From reading what they do I imagine I would be happy with either but do like the Firewall rule that WPD offers.
Any thought on these 2 apps would be appreciated.

Windows 11, Ver 21H2, OS Build 22000.376

Thanks !!!

Sorry that no one has answered your query. Since I use neither of those tweakers I cant' give my opinion. The only one I use is Winaerotweaker
which has served me well for many years. It's a standalone program with great screenshots and explanations on the author's website.

No worries, I was just hoping for some feedback from others who have used these. I tried both out and prefer UWT5 but I will check out Winareo and then decide. Thanks for the input !!!

I will tell you that UWT5 has been recommended as much as Winaerotweaker so I would call it a toss-up. WAT has been steadily developed since Win7 came out.

WPD does not support 11. UWT5 supposedly does, but it does not differentiate between 10 and 11, while some settings have changed or even removed in 11. So it would be probably better to use a dedicated 11 tweaker, like this one, updated in 2022.

Winaero Tweaker does differentiate between Win 10 and Win 11 automatically.
It has different options depending on which OS it's installed on.
