Windows 7 Registry Tweaks

22 posts in this topic

the settings only work on Vista Alphas from the 40xx series ( WINHEC 2004 - 4074 and leaked 4093 for example )

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer]

"MILDesktop"=dword:00000001

"MILExplorer"=dword:00000001

In the time given ( 2003/2004 ) "AERO" was not what it is today, Net framework 3.x was in development. The above settings make the taskbar and startmenu of Longhorn 40xx tranparent like this here : http://members.iinet.com.au/~aaronharvey/V...eroBackThen.jpg

and paired with the Desktop Window Manager can let rain rain "blue stars" ( SVG animated artwork ) over your desktop.. technology showcase only and buggy too. So were the Longhorn days...

The settings have no effect in Vista rtm and 7 rtm. They only lead to a invalid registry which should be avoided !stability. :}

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Open With Notepad\command]
@="notepad"

but it doesnt display when i want it.

it displays when i right click in the folder instead of right click on a file

where am i meant to create the files to do it that way

also for xp i had these how do i do these? i have them as .dll files would they work with win 7 if i registered them?

-show/hide file type ext

-select all

and how do i associate a file ext to a certain program through the registry?

eg associate mplayer.exe with .avi files?

no. Why? most settings are set by default or don't bring any improvements.
