"Share feedback to Ashampoo about Ashampoo WinOptimizer and why do you want to win an Ashampoo WinOptimizer 18 license"

I have WinOptimizer 16 and I have it always here. I use it to complement CCleaner Free. WinOptimizer has all the tools I need in just one application so I almost often use it. Perhaps devs can make the gui smaller? I come to see that the interface is too big for me. The rest v17 and v18 is also big and my screen is just small. If they can so guys with small screens can see more in background. I want to win a WinOptimizer 18 license so I can have chance to upgrade to the new version. Plus I see review and the interface is cleaner! Nice! Happy New Year 2021!
