Has anybody found a Tweak UI for '98? Or tried the '95 version?
If so, where? or what happened?

There is a Win98 version on the installation CD.

I have noticed little difference between the two but it is probably sensible to uninstall the Win95 version before you upgrade (if you have it installed) then install the Win98 version.

TweakUI is in the tools\reskit\powertoy\ directory on your Windows 98 CD. It is different to the version for Windows 95. The version is have on my Win95 machine is 77K long, and the one on my Win98 machine is 86K long.

Most settings are the same. There is a single row of tabs with arrows to move the row to the right or left. The main difference is that some of the settings are now located in different parts of the Registry, so using the Win95 version on Win98 may produce weird results (assuming it allows itself to be run).
