Windows 8/8.1 Tweaks

Rating: 4 votes, 5.00 average.
For Me, Best "Windows 7, Vista, 2008 Tweaks" is
Code:
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp
The things are different for Windows 8/8.1
In Windows 8/8.1 introduced "TCP Templates" to configure TCP settings and deprecated some of the "Old Netsh" ways of doing things.
There are 4/5 "Main Templates": Automatic, Internet, Datacenter, Custom and Compat.

By Default, "Internet" template was "Applied Setting" on TCP Connections.
You can check this by running PowerShell and type
Code:
Get-NetTcpConnection
My Screenshot for "Get-NetTcpConnection" :

And by Default, CTCP was set as the "Congestion Provider" on the "Internet" template.
You can check this by running PowerShell and type
Code:
Get-NetTcpSetting
My Screenshot for "Get-NetTcpSetting" - "Internet" template:

So, do we need to Tweak Windows 8/8.1???
NOPE, it's already Tweaked!!!

Don't get Fooled by Old
Code:
netsh int tcp show global
