User Interface Tweaks
Add Never Combine / Hide Labels to the Taskbar
(Win 7, 8) The Windows Taskbar is great in how it handles icons and permits pinning of apps. However, it’s missing a view that permits open apps to appear as separate icons without their descriptive text. You can add this, however, by changing the behavior of the Never
Combine Hide Labels option; see Figures
Figure The default Taskbar view in Windows

Figure. The modified Taskbar view for the same open apps

To do this, navigate to [HKCU]\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics and create a string value called «MinWidth» with the value «54». You will need to sign out and back in again for this change to appear. If you are using desktop scaling on your PC change the value appropriately (e.g., for 150% scaling use 72, and for 125% scaling use the value 63).
Change Taskbar Program Preview Icons (7, 8) When you hover your mouse over an icon for a running app on the Taskbar, the thumbnail image that appears can be resized to any pixel size you specify at the key [HKCU]\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband by adding
a DWORD value named «MinThumbSizePx» and the value of the thumbnail size you want
in pixels (e.g. 200 for large thumbnails or 400 for very large ones).
Change Taskbar Icons to Reopen Last Active Window (7, 8) When you click a Taskbar icon and more than one instance of a program is running, you will be presented with thumbnails of all the running instances. You can change this behavior so that clicking the icon automatically displays the last running instance on the
desktop (you can use Alt+Tab to switch to the others). Navigate to [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
Advanced and create a new DWORD value called «LastActiveClick» with a value of «1».
 При нажатии в панели задач по иконке приложения – открывается последнее активное окно/документ (удобно!)
Change Peek Operation Time (7) You can change the time it takes for Aero peek to display when you hover over its icon in the far right of the Taskbar at [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced by creating a new DWORD value called «DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime» with a value in milliseconds (e.g., «200»). You can set it to activate instantly with the value «0».
Speed Up Appearance of Taskbar Thumbnail Icons (7, 8) You can speed up the appearance of Taskbar app previews when you hover your mouse cursor over a running app, by going to [HKCU]\ Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and creating a new DWORD value called «ExtendedUIHoverTime» that has the value of «1».
You can also slow down the appearance of the thumbnail previews by changing this value to a larger number, such as 500 or 1000. The number represents the time in milliseconds.
Show Classic «All Programs» in Start Menu (Vista, 7) You can force the display of the XP-style All Programs menu at both [HKCU]
\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders and [HKCU]
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders. Change the value of «Favorites» for both keys to «C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs».
Once you have made the change, right-click the Start button and click Properties from the context menu that appears. Under the Start Menu tab in the next dialog, click Advanced, and then in the list of options that appears, make sure Favorites menu is checked. You will need to restart your system for the change to take effect.
Pin Folders to the Start Menu (Vista, 7) You can pin a folder to the Start Menu by going to the key [HKCR]\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers and adding a new key called {a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8}This will add a Pin to Start Menu option to the context menu for folders when you
right-click them in Windows Explorer.
Disable Desktop Shake (7, 8) Desktop shake, whereby you shake a window to minimize all others, can be annoying, especially for those with motor problems. It can be disabled in the Accessibility Options, but this can be difficult to find. Fortunately you can also disable it in the Registry at [HKCU]\ Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows by adding a new subkey called Explorer in which you add a DWORD value called «NoWindowMinimizingShortcuts» with the value «1». The changes will take effect when you sign out and back in again.
Remove «Shortcut» Text from Shortcuts (Vista, 7, 8) When you create a shortcut to a file or folder the text — Shortcut is automatically appended to its name. You can change this behavior at [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer where you will find a REG_BINARY value
of «1e 00 00 00». Change this to «00 00 00 00» to implement the tweak.
Get Rid of Shortcut Arrow Icons (Vista, 7, 8) Arrows on the icons of shortcuts are seen by many people as annoying, but you can remove them.
Navigate to [HKLM] \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons. If this key doesn’t exist, you can create it. Create a string value called «29»The value for this should be C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll,50. You will need to
restart your PC to reset the icon cache before this will work.
Show Drive Letter Before Volume Name in File Explorer (Vista, 7, 8) If you want to change the way File Explorer displays drive letters, so that they appear before the drive name rather than after it, navigate to [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and create a new DWORD called
«ShowDriveLettersFirst» with the value «4».
Hide Drives in File Explorer (Vista, 7, 8) You can hide any hard disk drive in File Explorer by navigating in the Registry to [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer and adding a DWORD value called «NoDrives». This DWORD value will have a 32-bit number as its data that represents all the drives you wish to hide. The number you assign to the DWORD is the total of the drives you wish to hide; for example, hiding drives C and E will mean giving a value of 20 (4+16) as calculated using Table:

Show Recycle Bin in Computer View of File Explorer (Vista, 7, 8) You can add the Recycle Bin to the Computer view in File Explorer by navigating to [HKLM] \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace and creating a new key called {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}.
Remove the «Use the Web Service to Find the
Correct Program» Dialog
(Vista, 7) When Windows doesn’t have a program or application associated with a specificfile, it will ask if you want to search for one (Figure 6-3) or by a Windows Store pop-up in Windows 8 and 10.
The Use the Web service to find the correct program dialog
You can prevent this message from appearing by navigating to [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer and creating a new DWORDvalue called «NoInternetOpenWith» that has the value «1»The result of making this change is that you will then automatically be presented with a list of installed programs and applications on your PC, and you can choose which one of these you wish to use to open the file.
Add Copy to…/Move to… to the File Explorer
Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) You can add Copy to… and Move to… options to the context menu in File Explorer at the key [HKCR]\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers and by adding new keys called «CopyToFolder» with the value {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} and «MoveToFolder» with the value {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}.
Реально полезная вещь.
Кроме того, полезным является сочетание CTRL+SHIFT в проводнике, с помощью которого появляется контекстное меню «Копировать как путь»

Add Open with Notepad to File Explorer Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) You can add an «Open with Notepad» option to the Context Menu when right-clicking files at [HKCR]\*\Shell by creating a subkey called «Open with Notepad» that has a subkey called «command» with the data for the Default string value «notepad.exe %1».
Add Defragment to the File Explorer Context Menu (Vista, 7, 8) Add a defragment option to the File Explorer context menu when right-clicking disks at [HKCR]\Drive\shell and by creating a new subkey called «runas»Double-click this to open it and change its Default string value to «Defragment», and create a subkey under that called «command» with the following data for its Default string value: «defrag %1 –v».


Add Command Prompt to the File Explorer Context Menu (Vista, 7, 8) To add an Open Command Prompt option to context menus when you right-click a folder in File Explorer, navigate to [HKLM]\Software\Classes\Folder\Shelland create a new subkey called «CommandPrompt». Double-click this to open it and change the data for its Default string value to «Open Command Prompt here…»Next, create a subkey under this called «command» with the following data for its
Default string value: «cmd.exe /k pushd %L» (на картинке выше отмечено красным CMD here)
Disable the Send to… Menu in File Explorer (Vista, 7, 8) You can disable the Send to… option in File Explorer context menus by navigating to [HKCR] \AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send ToDouble-click the Default value for this key and delete its contents. You can later restore it by changing its contents back to {7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}.
Hide Unwanted Apps from the File Explorer Context
(Vista, 7, 8) Installed programs can push themselves in your Context Menus and clutter them. You can remove these additional items at the following Registry locations; alas, they’re not all stored in one place together:
Under these locations you will see subkeys for the third-party software that has plugged itself into your context menus. There are several ways to handle them. You can delete the keys to remove them completely. To force them to show only on a Shift+right click, add a string value to each called «Extended», or to leave them in the Registry but disable them, add a string value called «LegacyDisable».
Remove Troubleshoot Compatibility from File Explorer
Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) You may not want the Troubleshoot Compatibility option to display in the context menu for apps and can disable it at both [HKCR] \exefile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Compatibility and [HKCR] lnkfile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Compatibility by adding a dash «-» to the beginning of the key value for each.


Remove Programs from Open with… Context Menu (Vista, 7, 8) If you want to remove programs from the Open with… menu that appears when you right-click a file, navigate to [HKCU]\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts where you will see subkeys for all known file extension types.
In this list of subkeys, look for «OpenWithList» and you can delete values in this list for the programs you wish to remove from the context menu.
Add Copy to Clipboard Option to File Explorer
Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) Sometimes you want to copy a file to the computer’s Clipboard, but if you press Ctrl+C it will copy the whole file. Adding a Copy to Clipboard option in your File Explorer context menu will instead copy what’s inside that file. To add a Copy to Clipboard option, navigate to [HKCR]\txtfile\shell where you should create a subkey called «CopyToClip» with Copy to Clipboard for its Default
string value. Under the CopyToClip subkey, create an additional subkey called «command» with the following data for its Default string value: «cmd /c clip < «%1″». Всегда использовала этот трюк прежде, но на Win8 не получилось добиться описанного результата….
Remove Items from IE Context Menu (Vista, 7, 8) It’s not just File Explorer that can have messy and slow-to-open context menus; Internet Explorer can, too. You can tidy it by navigating to [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt, where you will find subkeys for browser plug-ins that have added themselves to the menu. You can delete these subkeys to remove the associated menu option.
App Tweaks
Sometimes specific apps will come with their own Registry tweaks. Two useful and
common ones are the options to remove the Context menu entries for AMD and Nvidia
display cards.
Remove AMD Catalyst Control Center from Desktop
Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) To remove the AMD Catalyst Control Center option, navigate to [HKCR]\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ACE and double-click the Default value. Then add a dash «-» to the beginning of the value to disable the item.


Remove NVIDIA Control Panel from Desktop
Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) To remove the Nvidia Control Panel item from context menus, navigate to [HKCR]\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\, where you can delete the key «NvCplDesktopContext».
Administrative Tweaks
Prevent Windows Update from Restarting the PC
(Vista, 7, 8) Windows Update can be annoying. Even in Windows 8 and 10 where it’s less prone to automatically restart your PC when you don’t want it to. You can prevent Windows Update from being able to restart a PC completely, however, at [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AUIf this key doesn’t exist, you can create it. Next, create a DWORD value called «NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers» and give it the value «1» as its data.


Stop Windows Update from Hijacking Your Shut
Down/Restart Options
(Vista, 7, 8) When Windows Update has updates to install, it will alert you by modifying the Shut Down and Restart options in the Start Menu or at the Start screen with an icon or some text. This can sometimes change the default button, which often is set to Sleep. But you can disable Windows’s ability to change this button by navigating to [HKCU] \Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU and adding a DWORD value called «NoAUAsDefaultShutdownOption» with «1» as its data.


Disable the Shut Down Command (Vista, 7, 8) You can disable the Shut Down command in the Start Menu and Start screen at the key [HKCU]\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer by creating a DWORD value called «NoClose» with «1» as its data.
Hide Unwanted Items from the Control Panel (Vista, 7, 8) Many items can be hidden from the Control Panel using a Registry hack at
the key [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\don’t
load. You can create it if it doesn’t exist. You can add a new string value for each one you
wish to hide:
Control Panel Applet Name of String Key
Accessibility Options
Add New Hardware Wizard
Display Properties
Game Controllers

Internet Options

Mouse Properties

Network Connections

ODBC Data Sources

Phone and Modem Options

Power Options

Programs and Features





Time and Date

User Accounts

Add RegEdit to the Control Panel (Vista, 7, 8) A Windows Registry book wouldn’t be complete without a Registry tweak, and here’s one that allows you to add a direct link to the Registry Editor to the Control Panel. Open a blank Notepad file and write the following text into it. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@=»Registry Editor»
«InfoTip»=»Starts the Registry Editor»











@=»Add Registry Editor to Control Panel»

Now save this file as a .reg file; by default Notepad will want to save it as a .txt file,

so in the Save dialog choose All file types instead.

You can also remove the Registry Editor from the control panel by creating a .reg file

with the following contents.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




Add Control Panel to Computer Display in File Explorer (Vista, 7, 8) You can add a link to the Control Panel to the Computer view in File Explorer by navigating to [HKLM] \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace where you should create a new subkey called either {26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683} if you want the Category view for the Control Panel, or {21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} if you instead want the Icon view.
Add Control Panel to the Desktop Context Menu (Vista, 7, 8) You can also add a link to Control Panel in the desktop context menu by navigating to [HKCR]\Directory\Background\shell where you’ll want to create a new subkey called Control Panel. In this subkey create an extra subkey called «command» and when you see its default value, change this to «rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL».
Add Take Ownership to File Explorer Context Menu (Vista, 7, 8) File and folder ownership in Windows can often be a problem, and taking ownership of those files and folders so you can access or work on them can be fiddly. You can add a quick link to taking ownership of files though by copying the following text into a blank notepad file, and saving that file with a .reg extension.[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]
@=»Take Ownership»
@=»cmd.exe /c takeown /f \»%1\» && icacls \»%1\» /grant administrators:F»

«IsolatedCommand»=»cmd.exe /c takeown /f \»%1\» && icacls \»%1\» /grant



@=»Take Ownership»



@=»cmd.exe /c takeown /f \»%1\» /r /d y && icacls \»%1\» /grant

administrators:F /t»

«IsolatedCommand»=»cmd.exe /c takeown /f \»%1\» /r /d y && icacls \»%1\»

/grant administrators:F /t»

Disable all Taskbar Balloon Notifications (Vista, 7, 8) Windows 10 might include a handy notification center, but for people using Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, Taskbar popup alerts can still be annoying. You can disable them by navigating to [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and creating a new DWORD called«EnableBalloonTips» with «0» as its data.
Change the Registered Owner Name for Your Windows
(Vista, 7, 8) Sometimes you might find you want to change the name of the registered owner of a copy of Windows. You can do this at [HKLM] \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion by changing the text for the «RegisteredOwner» and «RegisteredOrganization» values. You can check the current owner by typing winver.exe at the command prompt or in the Start Menu search box.


Disable the Mobility Center (Vista, 7, 8) Battery life on laptops and tablets is crucial, and you might have carefully crafted a battery saving plan that you don’t want your users to change. You can disable access to the Windows Mobility Center at [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\MobilityCenter by creating a new DWORD value called«NoMobilityCenter» with «1» as its data.
Force Disk Cleanup to Delete All Temporary Files (Vista, 7, 8) Did you know that when you use the Disk Cleanup wizard in Windows it only deletes temporary files that are more than seven days old? Well, you can change this behavior at [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Temporary Files by changing the «LastAccess» value from the default to another number, such as 1 or 0.
Add Encrypt/Decrypt Options to File Explorer
Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) If you use Microsoft’s Encrypted File System (EFS) to encrypt files on your PC, you can add Encrypt and Decrypt options to the context menu when you right-click a file in File Explorer. To do this, navigate to [HKCU] \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and create a new DWORD value called «EncryptionContextMenu» that has «1» as its data.
Force Verbose Message During Startup and Shutdown
(Vista, 7, 8) When Windows starts and shuts down you don’t get any information these days about what it’s actually doing, such as shutting down services or the user profile. You can force Windows to give you more verbose messages instead at [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System by creating a DWORD value called «VerboseStatus» that has «1» as its data.
Enable/Disable Task Manager link from Taskbar
Context Menu
(Vista, 7, 8) Sometimes you might want to deny users access to the Task Manager. You can disable the Task Manager link that appears in the context menu on a right-click of the Taskbar. Navigate to [HKCU]\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System and change the DWORD called «DisableTaskMgr» to «1» to disable the link or «0» to enable it.


Display a Message During Windows Startup (Vista, 7, 8) Probably of most use to companies and enterprises, you can force Windows to display a text message at boot time, such as company information by navigating to [HKLM]\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\System and changing the text values of «legalnoticecaption» and «legalnoticetext».
Disable the Last Access File Timestamp (Vista, 7) The last accessed file timestamp can be a pain, especially if you use a cloud service such as Microsoft’s OneDrive to keep backup copies of files that you access regularly, such as music. Every time a file is opened (or a music track played) it registers as a file change, and this can force cloud backup software to reload the file all over again. To disable the last accessed file change, navigate to [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Filesystem and change the data of NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate from 0 to 1.
Disable Low Disk Space Warning (Vista, 7, 8) Sometimes, especially on small Windows tablets with small amounts of internal storage, you will get regular and annoying pop-up alerts warning you of «low disk space.» You can disable these at [HKCU]\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion by adding a DWORD value called «NoLowDiskSpaceChecks» and specifying «1» as its data.
Disable the Windows Security Center/Action Center (Vista, 7, 8) I genuinely cannot think of when you might want to do this except for some enterprise environments where you already have strict controls on security on your PCs and laptops. However, the Windows Security Center can be disabled at [HKLM]\SYSTEM\
CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc by changing the data of the «Start» value from
«2» to «4».
Disable Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool  Anonymous Reporting (Vista, 7, 8) When you download and run the Windows Malicious Software Removal
Tool, it silently reports back to Microsoft on what it’s done. If you don’t want it to do this,
navigate to [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\MRT and create a DWORD value
called «DontReportInfectionInformation» that has «1» as its data.
Disable IPv6 (Vista, 7, 8) The world needs IPv6, with so many laptops, tablets, fridges, cars, and microwaves now connected to the Internet. In some environments, however, such as where legacy hardware or software encounters problems with IPv6 in Windows, you can disable it at [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\ by creating a DWORD value called «DisabledComponents» that has «ffffff» as its value.
Force Windows Drives to Use AHCI
(Vista, 7, 8) Similarly you might find that for compatibility reasons you need your drives to be using the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI). To force this, navigate to [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci and create a DWORD called «Start» with the value «0».    
Disable «Do You Want to Run This File» Dialog
(Vista, 7, 8) When you download a file from the Internet you will be asked if you really want to run the file when you open it. Well, given that you did open it, it’s probably quite likely that you did, so you can disable this message by copying this text into a blank
Notepad file and saving it with a .reg file extension.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download]






Force-Writing to «Write Protected» USB Flash Drives (Vista, 7, 8) Sometimes you might find that you can’t write to a USB flash drive because writing to these drives is forbidden in Group Policy. Instead you can tell Windows to always ignore this protection by navigating to [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies and changing the value of the key «WriteProtect» to «0».
You will also need to navigate to [HKLM]\SYSTEM\ControlSet00?\Control\StorageDevicePolicies where 00? represents the different numbered subkeys. You will need to change all of the values «WriteProtect» to «0». If this key doesn’t exist you can create it.
Activate «God Mode» in Windows (Vista, 7, 8) God Mode isn’t actually a Registry tweak, but it’s so popular that we couldn’t really leave it out. This creates a folder containing every individual Control Panel and Administrative item that’s available in Windows. You can create it by putting a new folder on the desktop called «God Mode .{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}». Once the new folder has been created you can modify the folder name to anything you chose. Удобная вещь для администратора. Показывает все пункты Панели управления, группируя по темам:
Performance Tweaks
(Vista, 7, 8) Some tweaks are designed to boost the performance of Windows and your
PC. Here is a selection of some of the best and some of our favorites.
Increase the Maximum Allowed HTTP File Transfers (Vista, 7, 8) By default, Windows restricts the number of simultaneous HTTP file transfers
over the Internet to just two. Most web browsers change this limit for themselves, but if you’re transferring files over HTTP from within a program such as File Explorer you’ll hit the two-file transfer limit. You can change this by copying the following text into a blank
Notepad file and then saving that file with a .reg extension.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]«MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server»=dword:00000012
Maximize Your Internet Bandwidth
(Vista, 7, 8) Did you know that Windows reserves up to 20% of your Internet bandwidth for itself? Well you can disable this and maximize the available Internet bandwidth at [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Psched by creating a DWORD value called «NonBestEffortLimit» that has «0» as its data.
Force Windows to Auto-End Tasks on Shutdown
(Vista, 7, 8) You can force Windows to shut down more quickly by adding this Registry
key. Note however that if you have unsaved files and documents still open, this can force
the program to quit before the file is saved. In [HKCU]\Control Panel\Desktop add a new
DWORD value called «AutoEndTasks» and set its data as «1».
Reduce the WaitToKill Time for Closing Apps
(Vista, 7, 8) Again, when shutting down your PC it might take some time for apps to
close. You can reduce this time and shut down the PC faster by adding the DWORD value
«WaitToKillAppTimeout» to [HKCU]\Control Panel\Desktop and giving it a data of
«2000». This is the time is in milliseconds and, as with the last tweak, this could result in
unsaved files not being saved before the PC shuts down.
Reduce Time to Kill a Hung App or Process
(Vista, 7, 8) When an app is hung and unresponsive, Windows can wait some time to shut
it down. You can reduce this time by adding the DWORD value «HungAppTimeout» to
[HKCU]\Control Panel\Desktop and giving it the data «1000», which is in milliseconds.
Reduce the Time Taken to Stop a Windows Service
(Vista, 7, 8) Windows Services can be shut down more quickly too by adding the DWORD
value «WaitToKillServiceTimeout» to [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
with the millisecond data «2000».
Fun Tweaks
Lastly, we thought we’d include a few tweaks that exist purely for fun. We have no idea
why you’d want to do these other than to play a practical joke on somebody, so if you do
please be responsible and set things back afterward.
Enable More Fonts in Command Prompt (Vista, 7, 8) This first tweak is likely the most useful as it allows you to expand the number of fonts you can use in a Command Prompt window. This can have many uses including making text in the window easier to read. Navigate to [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont and you will see a list of fonts.
Create a new string value named «00» and change its data to the name of the font you
wish to use, for example «Consolas». This will only work with fixed-width fonts, so not all
fonts are compatible.
Disable the Caps Lock Key (Vista, 7, 8) If you hate your Caps Lock key and keep hitting it by accident, which we all
do now and again, you can disable it at [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\
Keyboard Layout by changing the data of «Scancode Map» to «000000000 00000000
02000000 00003A00 00000000″.
Force Windows XP-Style Classic Login Dialog (Vista, 7) Some people prefer the classic Windows XP–style logon screen in Windows, and
you can bring it back by adding the DWORD value «dontdisplaylastusername» with the
data «1» to [HKLM]\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System.
Control System Tray Icons Using the Registry (Vista, 7, 8) You can hide any of the four system tray icons at [HKCU]\Software\
Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ by creating keys called
«HideSCAVolume», «HideSCAPower», «HideSCANetwork», and «HideSCAHealth«, giving
each «0» as the data for its Default value.
Force a Blue Screen of Death in Three Keystrokes (Vista, 7, 8) Lastly, the pièce de résistance for Windows users, forcing a blue screen of
death in three keystrokes. This is actually more useful than it sounds, as forcing a BSOD
will create a memory dump file that can be used by System Administrators for testing
Navigate to [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\kbdhid\Parameters and

create a DWORD value called «CrashOnCtrlScroll» that has a data of «1». After a reboot,

when you hold down Right Ctrl and press Scroll Lock twice, a BSOD will be triggered.
