Would anyone mind, if any other puts all the collected tweaks in the first post? It would be much more comfotable, because I can find most of the tweaks in many posts of you.
It is really confusing, if you do not really know ´, if you already got a tweak or not :| I'd like to have one post with all tweaks just once in it ;)

EDIT:
D'oh! First post and already a noob-question that was answered some post before... Sorry that! :whistle:

Under the Windows XP registry tweaks, what exactly does the following do?

;Configure Start Menu
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"WebView"=dword:00000001
"Filter"=dword:00000000

I believe web view is for the panel on the side of your explorer window, versus classic, which is just a big open window, not sure about filter.

Please let this thread die though. Use part two, it is stickied, with all the tweaks from this thread.

Mods, maybe a lock?

I'm going to have to try the 'right click context menu of Windows Media Player', hopefully it will work for Winamp or Foobar also.

I read the first page, and it's a bit scary the way people are posting (so in effect advising), registry tweaks that they themselves do not know what it does.

The very first post, a tweak to speed up the start menu is changed from 4 seconds to 20 seconds. Never considered myself a genius, but I think 4 seconds is a shorter wait than 20.

Of all the people who say you should turn off the QoS, did any explain why? Or do they themselves know the advantage (or lack thereof), to doing this?

Another example is 'the broadband tweak'. Did any of the posts go into detail about how this will do more damage than good for ADSL users? Of the group that has cable, how many have an MTU of 1500? Who even knows how to check? (the answer on this page http://cable-dsl.hom...net/#dns_cache)

When listening to the advice of these registry tweaks, be skeptical. The person you are taking the advice from more than likely has no idea what they are talking about. Take the time to test one or two, ... or all. That's what made me so apprehensive. You'll be surprised at the results.

There are many really good enhancements listed on this pages, to those who know what and why they posted .... well done.
