    Here :

    WinAero: Boot UI Tuner

    is a way to customize your boot options.

    With it installed, every time you restart your computer, a blue screen appears with the options to boot into safe mode or recovery. (restore point or refresh or factory default)

    #4 is safe mode.
    #F-10 is recovery (press #4 for safe mode & the recovery options appear)

    You must press ENTER to continue regular booting if you do not want to choose one of the options.

    This program is worth its weight in gold, in my opinion.

    Thanks David bailey, your name seems familiar ( How'd you change the name mate ? )

    Working on a new updated post ! 8.1 compatible ? Looks really good.

    It was medab1.

    I posted in the Chillout Room for an administrator to change it for me & he did.

    As for my name being familiar, were you ever in Virginia with a white pickup truck ?

    Some customization tools:

    Check out the WinAero programs, very good stuff:
    WinAero: Downloads / Software

    Something else,
    I've made some custom cursors here. Older thread... Make sure to see different posts for different designs.
    Out of ideas for now, I might still release something one day.
    The tools used (since sharing is caring) are:
    Axialis Cursor Workshop and AniTuner2

    Backup of Apps data:
    (not really customization but worth the mention)
    This is a tool for saving for example the current level in a game APP in Win8. Restore when you like...
    Very good to save all the important apps' state and restore after a Windows reinstall without starting all over:

    WinAero is mentioned already ( they do so many apps /mods didn't want to list them all or I'd be classed as a spammer )

    Thanks for the other links I will try them out and post some screens . Really appreciate them ! Do they all work on 8.1 ?

    When I'm semi-sober I will edit the OP

    Thanks.
