Compared to the other versions, Windows 8 has lots of customizing options and tools available. Previously, I wrote about “Lockscreenify“, which helps the users to customize the Windows 8/8.1 lock screens and about “Ultimate Windows Tweaker“, which lets you edit all the possible options on your Windows PC. Apart from these tools, there are plenty of useful third party apps available on the Internet to customize your PC. Today I’ve come with one such application called “Missed Features Installer”, which comes as a package and install all the missing features on your Windows 8/8.1 PC. Lets have a look at the features and functions of the app below.
Missed Features Installer is a free application for Windows. You can download the app using the link at the end of this post. Since it contains lots of customizing tools and apps, the application is quite large (around 550MB). On the download page, you will see the complete list of applications in that package. So, if you don’t need more than one or two apps in that list, you can download them separately. But, there are plenty of interesting apps available in that package and worth giving a try. Also, all the apps available in that package are freewares.
After you complete the installation process, you will see a different set of categories on the homepage as shown in the screenshot above. The first section will let you install .Net Framework 3 and its successor versions, in case you need. The next section will have the “Aero Glass” feature, which makes all the application windows look transparent. The Gadgets section will contain loads of useful third party gadgets for your desktop. This section will look familiar if you’ve used Metro Sidebar on your Windows machine.
Microsoft added the start menu back to Windows in their 8.1 update. Unfortunately, it won’t work like previous versions, instead it takes you to the start screen. If you want to bring that old style start menu or want to add more customizations, you can do it in the “Start Menu” section of the app. Also, you can add old games from Windows XP, Vista or 7 using the application. The “Apps” section in the application contains some of the important customization apps like Lock Screen Customizer, This PC Tweaker, etc..
If you are interested in customizing your Windows machine, then Missed Features Installer is a great app to try on your PC. Share your experience with us in the comments. Thanks for reading, do share this post with your friends.
