Interface and in use
We found Nero TuneItUp Pro pretty easy to download, but installing and activating it was a bit cumbersome. Start by heading to the official website to download the setup file, and afterward, run it. Installation takes a few minutes. You’ll need to provide an email address that Nero will verify and send you a pre-set login password to activate it.
Once you’ve launched the app, using it isn’t hard. It has a good-looking interface with features laid out clearly around the dashboard. There are five main toolbars from where you can access all the functionality, so you need not stress to navigate through it.

Nero also has an extensive knowledge base and Frequently Answered Questions (FAQ) published online to familiarize users with its software.
