Registry Tweaks Pt 3

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how to remove the microsoft word document, excel, powerpoint, winrar from the Right click-->new menu?

I've searched and only had luck with bmp and wav files.

Tweak UI is the easy way. ;)

Thanks :D

Used that with RegShot, and voila. Got my key for unattended :thumbup:thumbup

Hi guys,

This is my first post on this forum although I've been keeping up frequently. I downloaded the Registry Tweaks rar bundle you show on the fixed post, commented a few tweaks I thought I wouldn't need and ran the reg file, and it worked just fine on my desktop, so I did it also on my laptop. The problem is that I must have disabled some service or did some tweak that disabled the capability to connect to my wireless router.

Before running the tweaks it worked fine. Now if I use some tools I can see that the wireless signal reaches the laptop but somehow it doesn't show on the "available wireless connections" panel. Actually, no wireless networks are shown there, so I can see it is a local problem. I have another laptop where I didn't run the tweaks and it's still working fine. Can you give me a hint on what might be causing this? I'm not using the current version of the tweaks but the previous 1.8b.

It's just that I wouldn't want to spend an entire day comparing both laptops services & registries to see the difference... cn you please help?

Does anyone having trouble getting the "Quick Launch" toolbar stay switched on? I switch it on and the next boot it goes away .... worse, when I switch it on again, it sorts based on the folder sort order :blink:

If someone can solve this for me I'd really appreciate that! I'd really like to know if there is some kind of reg entry that help stay on ... and remember that it is on.

Thanks in advance!

;Show hidden files/objects



;Show Hidden Files and Folders (1= Do not Show)

Found a faulty tweak:

;AMD Processor Fix ,dword:00000100= 256KB SecondLevel Cache, dword:00000200 = 512KB SecondLevel Cache

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]"SecondLevelDataCache"=dword:00000200

On Microsoft's website you can read this:

Do not change the SecondLevelDataCache entry

Some third-party sources have erroneously reported that modifying the SecondLevelDataCache registry entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet

\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

can enhance system performance. The second level (L2) cache is recognized by the operating system and is fully utilized regardless of the setting of this parameter.

The other tweaks are great, but i can't find on how to disable "Use the following transition effect for menus and tooltips" in Display Properties-Effects...

Any input greatly appreciated :)

Importing Registry Tweaks

There are several methods for importing tweaks into the registry. I choose the following because it takes place during Windows setup thus applying the settings to all users. HKEY_CURRENT_USER Registry tweaks executed after setup apply only to current user. Another user logs in and the registry tweak is not applied.

* Create cmdlines.txt and place it in C:\working\xp_cd\$OEM$\

* Place the following into cmdlines.txt and save the file.

"REGEDIT /S xp_cd.reg"

* Create xp_cd.reg and place it in C:\working\xp_cd\$OEM$\

* Place the following into xp_cd.reg and save the file.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

The above code is merely an example. Place the HKCU registry tweaks you desire into this file. cmdlines.txt is automatically ran at the T-12/T-13 minute stage of Windows XP Setup.


I have just learnt how to import registry tweaks into the installation CD. Hooray! I will try it at home.

My question is: How do I create registry tweaks that take effect on all users? Is it enough to just enter the tweaks under HKEY_ALL_USERS instead of HKEY_CURRENT_USER?

Please explain to me or point me to where it's explained 'cause I don't know s*** :rolleyes:

It took me a long time to get the Logoff button enabled when using the classic start menu, seems I needed 2 entries - hope this helps someone else:

;Show logoff button on classic start menu

Here's a question that's likely best directed to this thread...

I want my custom 'shuffling' of start menu-> all programs to be imported after all the software is installed from RunOnceEx.

I used regshot to look at the differences between pre and post shuffling and it looks as though this key was modified:

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2025429265-2111687655-1060284298-1003\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Start Menu2\Programs]

Under this key all the software I had installed are listed IN ADDITION TO the software being listed within the new folders I created.

Can this key be imported via RunOnceEx and work properly? If so, how much of the key would need to be imported? All of it?
