    @ pisthai

    You should put the addition to your scripts to avoid further questions.

    First line of script:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    Not 100% on topic, but maybe useful in the same manner for to get more out of Windows 8.

    Another way to tweak Windows 8 is to disable some function if a user don't like them or will free up some additional resources etc. for example Animation or Shadow effects. it may improves the system performance.


    To do that:
    Hit Win + R keyes together and type sysdm.cpl in command line and press Enter. That will open the System Properties window.

    1. go to Advanced, click Settings in Performance section
    2. in the new open windows you could uncheck following options:

    • Animate controls and elements inside windows
    • Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing
    • Animations in the taskbar
    • Fade or slide menus into view
    • Fade or slide ToolTips into view
    • Fade out menu items after clicking
    • Save taskbar thumbnail previews
    • Show shadows under mouse pointer
    • Show shadows under windows
    • Show translucent selection rectangle
    • Slide open combo boxes
    • Smooth-scroll list boxes
    3. Click Apply and close the window.


    Some more way to change some settings would be within the Folder Options. It's up to the need of each user what he/she need to "see"!


    Just open My Computer from within Windows Explorer, click on the View Tap in ribbon and chose Options. Go to the View Tap and chose to enable and disable what you like to see or not. As less is enabled as btter the performance will be. User have to judge for his own use.


    Many installed Apps are starting together with Windows even if not used. They still will decrease the performance and therefore the speed. Check out what is running and what really need to run!


    Use the Windows Taskmanager for to do the required changes. To open Taskmanager press Ctrl+Shift+Esc together and chose the Startup Tap. Now you could disable all programs which were started with Windows but didn't need to run all times. To mrun them now is just to start them manually. That will free up significant resources.


    Again, this all is to be done with care and according to the need of each user.
