No installation is necessary, although administrative privileges are required. The app opens as one single window that lists all its possible functions. To add an option to the right-click context menu, simply check the box next to the function name and click the Apply Tweaks button.
This tool doesn’t actually provide any new functions to Windows, as the options all use existing Windows commands. However, having these in the right-click context menus can be extremely useful and in some cases, can save a lot of time.
