 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi all, this is my first post here, so be gentle  :D

Here are some reg-values concerning this topic wich I haven't found yet in this GREAT  :) forum.  Remember : these settings take effect after a reboot.

Windows Start Menu options are controlled by the following Registry locations :

Windows 2000 and XP use the 9th binary value and Windows NT uses the 53 binary value as shown in the table below.

Windows 2000 and XP

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2

Windows NT 4.0

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects

Windows 9x

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects

SINGLE OPTIONS:

08 = No Settings Enabled

09 = Auto Hide

00 = Show Clock

0A = Always on Top

0C = Show small icons in Start Menu

MULTIPLE OPTIONS:

01 = Auto Hide and Show Clock

02 = Always on Top and Show Clock

03 = Always on Top and Auto Hide and Show Clock

04 = Show small icons in Start Menu and Show Clock

0E = Always on Top and Show small icons in Start Menu

0F = Always on Top and Auto Hide and Show small icons in Start Menu

06 = Always on Top and Show small icons in Start Menu and Show Clock

07 = All Options Enabled

0B = Always on Top and Auto Hide

0D = Auto Hide and Show small icons in Start Menu

Hey pplz,

Customizing the Default User Profile  Has been updated with some additional regfiles that you can add to your default user hive  :)

Enjoy!

does not work for me, i used the regfile from your site.

add this via cmdlines.txt and reg file.

after boot No 2 lines. any ideas?

If you follow the instructions exactly it will work i promise you. Adding the registry file during an unattended install will not work. if you want to add your updated default user NTUSER.DAT file to an unattended install you need to copy it to the following path: \$oem$\$Docs\Default User

Enjoy!

So is this method the only means of applying this modification? Im currenlty not using an NTUSER.DAT file for my UA Install and noticed that the file also has some other reg entries in it and dont want it to overwrite tweaks ive already applied...

should I worry about this? is there another way to apply this setting?

THanks!

i get a twoline taskbar without editing the DAT file. Mine's a simply registry tweak.

I set how I want the taskbar, restart. Export the TaskBarXP key, then reimport during install at CMDLINES.TXT and GUIRUNONCE. I dunno if both are needed, but doesn't hurt.

Hi all!

I read and applied all what Felix and others said here (exporting those keys, changing NTUSER.DAT, etc.) but I couldn't maintain a 2 line taskbar. I even manipulated NTUSER.DAT of Default user with a hex editor. Can somebody here explain in a simple step by step manner what should I do to have this?

thx
