    • Add Copy to Folder in context menu (First two keys)
    • Sets Windows to automatically end task of programs which are either hanged or taking longer time than expected to exit.
    • Decreases menus show delay time, it'll show the sub-menus fast when you select their parent menu.
    • Disables the low disk space check so that you don't get the annoying low disk space notification in system tray.
    • Sets Windows to not waste time in searching for a program which no longer exists in your system when you try to open its shortcut.
    • Disables "search on Internet" prompt in "Open with" window so that it directly opens the program list.
    • Speeds up the Explorer navigation.
    • Adds "Take Ownership" option in files and folders context menu so that you can easily take ownership of files and folders in case you want to replace them for customization purpose.
    • Enable Transparent Icons fixes the issue of not being able to see the icon very well on light and dark backgrounds.
    • Adds Log off, Restart and Turn Off to Context Menu
    Copy and past this into notepad and name it whatever.reg and choose the save as type to All Files set the encoding format as ANSI then save it. Then double click on the reg file.

    Make sure you backup your registry so you can undo these if you do not like them.

    There's a couple of booboos in that file, most notably the last key as you posted it. There's a space in this line that needs to be removed:

    that need fixing, and Windows 7 is also complaining about an invalid key. I've got all these as separate Reg files so... just pointing out that it needs to be "fixed" before a lot of people grab it.

    Thanks...

    Great, but there are like a ton of Reg Threads.

    Edit: OK, that isn't exactly true. Not Registry only threads anyway. Well, maybe there are, but I got better things to be doing atm. :)

    A few more to add, gentoo :



    Aero peek speedup :

    [FONT=&quot]HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    In the right pane, right click on a empty space and click on New and DWORD (32-bit) Value.
    [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Type DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime and press enter.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]In the right pane, right click on DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime and click on Modify, then select (dot) Decimal. (See screenshot above)

    Type in how many milliseconds (1000 miliseconds = 1 second) you want the delay time to be, then click on OK. (See screenshot below)



    Change SuperFetch :

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\
    Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters


    Find the EnablePrefetcher key on the right-hand pane, and change the value to one of these:

    * Disable Caching: 0
    * Cache Applications Only: 1
    * Cache Boot Files Only: 2
    * Cache Everything (default): 3

    You’ll have to restart your computer before this takes any effect.
    You could consider clearing out the \Windows\Prefetch folder after making this change to start with a fresh cache,
    but keep in mind that the next boot will probably be slower since Windows will have to cache everything again.



    Clear Recent items & documents at shutdown :
    [/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]1:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Click Start, type gpedit.msc and press ENTER.[/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]2:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Click on Yes to accept UAC prompt.
    [/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]3:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Navigate to User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]4:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] On the right pane, double-click on Clear history of recent opened documents on exit. (See screenshot above)

    5. To Enable Clear history of recent opened documents on exit -[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]A) Select (dot) Enabled, and click on OK.[/FONT]



    [FONT=&quot]6. To Disable Clear history of recent opened documents on exit -[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]A) Select (dot) Not configured or Enabled, and click on OK.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]7:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Close the Local group Policy Editor and restart your computer.[/FONT]





    Prevent Autostart when Updating :




    [FONT=&quot]HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Polices\Microsoft\Windows[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    3. In the left pane, right click on Windows, and click on New and Key, then type in WindowsUpdate and press enter.

    4. In the left pane, right click on WindowsUpdate, and click on New and Key, then type in AU and press enter.

    5. In the right pane of AU, right click on a empty space and click on New DWORD (32-bit) Value, then type in NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers and press Enter.

    6. Right click on NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers and click on Modify, then type in 1 and press enter.

    [/FONT]




    Disable UAC with a reghack :


    [FONT=&quot]
    [/FONT]


    • [FONT=&quot]Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=&quot]Now type regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]In regedit go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\System[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]In the right pane, right click on EnableLUA and click on Modify[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]Change value to 0.
      * UAC Enabled: 1
      * UAC Disabled: 0[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]
    Speed Up thumbnail preview :


    [/FONT] [FONT=&quot]Note:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] If you have the Animations in the taskbar and Start Menu option checked in Visual Effects, then you may not see much or any difference. You will need to uncheck this option first before doing this.

    [/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]Now type regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]In regedit go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]In the right pane, right click on MouseHoverTime and click on Modify[/FONT]

    • [FONT=&quot]Type in a number between 0 to 4000 [400 is default, I use 30] in milliseconds, that the mouse pointer has to stay hovered on a item before it is selected or opens a pop-up.[/FONT]
    Reboot to see changes
    [FONT=&quot]

    These are all also a must, and need to be added.
    Anyway thanx for the thread Gentoo !


    EDIT : sorry for the messy look. I'm a slob.:rolleyes:

    Many other commands may be added in the same way.

    I meant at the time I didn't have the time to look for previous threads.

    There is a "Windows 7 Tweaks thread" but it isn't soley registry tweaks so I'll let you off. :)

    I assumed you just posted it without searching for an appropriate thread. My point was it is better to keep 'em all in one thread where it would continue to get seen rather than lost after a few days.

    It seems a reg thread now anyway, so it's all good.

    does anybody has a reg tweak that lets applications stealing focus. (the default is disabled out of the box)

    I really hate that blinking blue thing is the task-bar when an application needs attention. I'd rather have the application come to the foreground right away.

    the tweak should be in a .reg file so I only have to click on that reg file after a new installation.

    thanks

    I've always used the Regedit file from years passed to add that option but, surprisingly Windows 7 does have a lot going on underneath the hood. And I'd prefer not to have a right-click context menu with so much damned stuff on it myself. Right hand on the mouse, left hand on the keys the vast majority of the time anyway...

    Keyboard shortcuts FTW!!! ;)
