BluePoison: Unlock Windows 8 Hidden Features And Change Default Theme

Back in May, we featured BluePoison to unlock some hidden features, utilities and UI related improvements of the leaked version of Windows 8. The application was primarily developed to replace Windows 7 like File Explorer with ribbon based Windows Explorer and to unlock PDF Reader, extended Windows Task Manager and Webcam in early builds of Windows 8. BluePosion now supports Windows 8 Developer Build Preview. The latest version of BluePoision (version 2.1) allows you to disable Windows 8 Immersive Start Menu, unlock the Applications folder, activate full-screen Snap feature on small screens and launch Moorea in MS Office 15 on Windows 8. Apart from these unlocks, it also brings the much needed Windows 8 Start Menu theme gallery to replace the Windows 8 default theme with color scheme of your choice. Read More
