The Structure of WinUtilities

WinUtilities consists of a number of useful modules that can be accessed through a common graphical Start Center. This center is divided into six categories to make it easier to find individual modules.
The modules of the selected category are shown on the right side of the window in the form of white buttons. You can start a module by clicking the corresponding button. When you have finished working with a module, simply click the red [X] in the upper right corner to close it and return to the Start Center.
