durint install

^^^^ It says "durint" not "during"

Thanks for your effort. I for one appreciate it.

Hey just a heads up you seem to have miffed the file name on the readme. Shouldn't it be .html not xhtml??

I thinks it should be xhtml

The Extensible HyperText Markup Language, or XHTML, is a markup language that has the same depth of expression as HTML, but also conforms to XML syntax.

**** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XHTML ****

Also the file does have xhtml stuff in it (e.g. the first line)

btw thanks for pointing out the typo!

I also found another few lil things - so here is the up-to-date version!

Hate to be a pain in the butt, here is a couple more issues.

Royale_Remixed.rar

Segoe.zip

BOTH files are corrupted just dlete the whole folder it really doesn't have any place in a reg tweaks collection any ways and will save alot of space.

And what do I read an xhtml file with? It reads in IE fine renamed as html.

I'm sorry but there's more chance of you winning the lotto.

The whole idea of these things is to choose only the tweaks you need and comment out those you don't. Only you know what you've applied and if you didn't do it in a test environment then you've only really got yourself to blame.

I know it sounds like I'm being harsh on you, but there really is no alternative, if you didn't create a system restore point, or back up your registry before you ran the tweaks then you'll have to start from scratch having learned a valuable lesson.

Hi, when do you make a new update

When new tweaks are found or bugs found in the current ones, neither of which are very likely to happen too often. But you never know...

You should've read Yzöwl's post first, it's the 4th post above yours.

You simply cannot undo a regtweak, unless you have some kind of backup (previously exported key, restore point).

If you know the exact tweak you've set you can change it back, but you have to know where it is and what it was set to.

You can also export the key from another computer and apply it.

Use a virtual machine and apply your tweaks in there if you're not sure.

Apply them one by one and backup the key they're in before applying them.

Regtweaks and the registry is not that easy if you haven't worked with it and know only a little.

In many places (magazines, websites) you can read warnings about editing the registry, in some cases they have a valid point in that.

Some of us have been configuring/tweaking and working with the registry for many years...

Thank you very much! Simple and very informative!

thx for all those RegistryTweaks.

i sure aint a Codemonkey but i somehow managed to hack together a small ".cmd" that backups the state of the keys, that will get changed by a given ".reg"-file.

Basically just making it possible to undo things changed by the ".reg"-file without having to backup the WHOLE registry.

everyone can of course change and use it anyway they want.

Great tweaks :thumbup , but a couple of questions:

; Makes a right click option for unknown files (Open with notepad)

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell]

@="\"notepad.exe %1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open]

@="Open &With Notepad"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open\command]

@="notepad.exe %1"

Doesn't this add the "open" command to all files, not just unknown files? I thought that the proper code (or script or whatever you call it) for that would be:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\unknown\shell]

@="\"notepad.exe %1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\unknown\shell\open]

@="Open &With Notepad"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\unknown\shell\open\command]

@="notepad.exe %1"

And I can't think of any reason why anyone would want to open .DLL's, for example, with notepad.

Second, can/should a lot of CURRENT_USER keys be changed to LOCAL_MACHINE or CLASSES_ROOT keys to make the tweaks system-wide? For example:

; = Edit .nfo files with notepad

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.nfo]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.nfo\OpenWithList]

"a"="NOTEPAD.EXE"

"MRUList"="a"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.nfo\OpenWithProgids]

"nfo_auto_file"=hex(0):

Wouldn't this allow just the current user to open .nfo files with notepad? Whereas the following (or something like it, if I haven't gotten it 100% correct):

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.nfo\shell\Edit]

@="Edit"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.nfo\shell\Edit\command]

@="notepad.exe %1"

would allow it for all users? (Although there are several options, such as "Show protected operating system files" and "Show Hidden Files and Folders " that I don't want all users to have)

Thanks!
