Do Windows 95 Powertoys work in NT?

A. Some of them do, and I suspect as time goes on they all will. The ones that currently work on NT 4.0 are

  • Desktop Menu
  • Find X
  • Send to X
  • Target Menu
  • TweakUI - Hurray :-)
  • Explore from here
  • Command prompt here

As part of the Powertoys for Windows 95 there is also a QUICKRES utility that allows a change of resolution without a reboot, however this does not work in NT, but the NT resource kit includes an identical utility (called QUICKRES.EXE).
