Windows 8 Manager by Yamicsoft is a program utility that helps optimize, tweak, repair, and clean Windows 8. Windows 8 Manager is designed to increase your system speed, eliminate system fault, and improve system security.
Installation was typical and easy and the program is designed to work with Windows 8 32-bit and 64- bit versions.
Yamicsoft also provides Windows 7, Vista, and WinXP managers, but in this review we will be covering
the Windows 8 version of the program.
We will go into more detail and depth of the features and capabilities of the program throughout this review.
When you first open Windows 8 Manager you will be presented with the main screen as pictured above.
The layout is nice and simple and provides easy access to the features you would like to use.
These features are arranged nicely on the side-bar of the main window. Among the available options are:
- System Information

Now we will go in-depth of what each function does for your Windows 8 system.
When you click on System information, the utility will provide an in-depth look at your
Systems information including Hardware, Software, and other information. The information provided is quite in-depth and gave better information than expected. You can even click on individual aspects of your System information on the left pane of the System information Screen to get a breakdown of the specific information you are looking for and export them to Html.
From here you can learn all about your system’s information.
The Process Manager is another great tool in Windows 8 Manger.
As the name implies, this feature displays all running processes on your system along with the processes information.
You also have the option to select a process and set its priority, you can kill a specific process or processes, black list a process, get details on the process,
go to the process folder, and query the internet for more information about the process.
The options for the process manager are at the top of this window on a toolbar as shown in the screenshot below:
