22 posts in this topic

Every windows version needs a little tweaking.

Here is a compiled 100% safe registry tweaks for windows 7 x86 or x64

everything is pretty much labeled as to what it does... just copy it all and paste in notepad and save as a ***.reg file

open that file and add it to the registry... or if you wish you can browse threw and pick and choose but i must say it is a good compilation of tweaks

Thanks, this will be usefull.

I wanted to choose what icons are on the desktop.

To help I came up with this

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]

;ieexplorer? Had no effect on my system
"{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000001

;users documents

;My Computer

;Network

To JBM , why are settings listed under " Hide " desktop icons ?

If this reg setting means " Show-up " on desktop , can this reg tweak also be used to FORCE icons to show-up???

I found a lot of questions from people missing desktop icons , while they where present at first. i.e. after reboot.

If the reason of missing icons is a short of icon-cache , how can i enlarge the icon-cache to prevent this in Win 7 ?

Thanks.

This tweak only effects the 6 icons listed.

I found the following searching on google

Rebuild icon cache

Thanks for the list of tweaks. More documentation would be very helpful so everyone would know exactly what each tweak does, and can make better decisions about which tweaks to include.

I mirror the above, first off, many thanks for these tweeks! some of them are brillaint. The trouble is i'e only taken on board a few as i do not have enough understanding as to what each one does. Any documentation would be very much welcomed. Again, thanks so much, signed up just to say thanks! :)

most of those "tweaks" are useless.

Forcing Aero doesn't work since Feb CTP of Vista. Disabling UAC is also bad and the prefetcher and feedback tool setting is useless. Also the takeown command only works on english Windows versions.

Only the AutoReboot and the new program entries are ok.

Take own command can be altered to this and work Multi-Lingual.

@MAgicAndre...

most of the tweaks are useless

sorry you feel that way if you dont like it dont use it

I been really busy guys and i havnt had a chance i promise i will update the tweaks here soon and even add a few.. and most of the tweaks are not useless.. and I personally like disabling uac.. its not irreversible.. u can change it later it just changes the setting... forceing areo from my experience.. does work...

most of the tweaks make it easier to get around 7... prolly not all labeled yes.. but i will get to that.. mainly the right click tweaks.. but yes.. ill add more to it soon working tons of hours and havnt had time.. but will get back to it promise

I do promise you tho that there is nothing in those tweaks that will adversely affect your pc... performance or stability.. and I would almost guarantee that you will like the end result..

As I said, this tweak only worked till Dec 2005 CTP (Build 5270) of Vista. Starting with Feb CTP (5308), you must have a Dx9 card with WDDM1.0 drivers.
