Hi burningbush :)

I can confirm you that MiniToolBox works under Windows 8/8.1. However, if it's fully supported (which means that it works as good under Windows 7 as under Windows 8/8.1), I cannot tell. If it's fully supported however, we can ask Grinler to adjust the tool description :)

In my experience it works on both. It has worked on a windows 8.0 and a windows 8.1 laptop of mine. The logs from it seem to show everything they show when run on other machines so it seems that all it's features work on windows 8 and 8.1 . Windows 8 and 8.1 users are often advised to run it by forum experts so that also indicates it works in it's entirety on these operating systems.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
