How to manage system settings with WinTK free system management utility
We’ll start off with Windows product key viewer. This is the first tab all the way in the top left corner, the Home tab.
WinTK calculates products keys using DigitalProductIDs, which it picks up from the registry. To do this you’ll have to click on the Quick Key button. In case that keys are not found, you’ll have to find and add DigitalProductID yourself and then click Decrypt.
Click the following OEM Editor tab and you can change OEM logo and accompanying info. This is what you see when you click My Computer >> System Properties.
Last but not least is one of those tools that we didn’t mention in the feature list, but is very useful. Service stopper allows you to stop unnecessary Windows services.
WinTK has a lot of interesting tools and settings tweaks to make system management much more easier for both professionals and beginners who would like to learn more about their Windows system. It’s portable, but you are gonna have to register an account on the website in order to download it. Registration and the application are of course free.
