Supposedly this is a tweak that is used in Windows Longhorn but also works in Windows XP.

Can anyone confirm a speedup?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\Prefetcher

You will notice in Windows XP:

EnablePrefetcher = 3

In Windows Longhorn:

EnableSuperfetch = 1

Well, guess what? You can put the EnableSuperfetch = 1 in Windows XP and get the same speed.

I saw were spiritpyre offered this tweak to remove the "Print" option from the right-click context menus from "image" and "text" files...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\print]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\text\shell\print]

The part about removing "Print" from "image" files works perfectly for me, so thanks, spiritpyre...I've been trying to find as many tweaks that will remove my unwanted right-click context menu options.

However, I do not have this particular registry entry in my registry...

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\text\shell\print

...so there's nothing for me to remove there.

Does anyone know of another way to go about removing "Print" from "text" files?

As a matter-of-fact, since I don't have a printer, does any know how I can remove all the "Print" context menu options from all the various files it applies to?

Here are a few then:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Remove Print From Images
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\print]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\text\shell\print]

;Remove Print From txt Files
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell\print]

;Remove Print From INI Files
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\inifile\shell\print]

;Remove Print From INF Files
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\inffile\shell\print]

I am trying to remove from PHP files too but this is not working. :(

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Remove Print From PHP Files
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\phpfile\shell\print]

Thanks, war59312. A little earlier I figured out a couple of the ones you just gave me. The tweak Newinko gave me lead me to them. But you have a couple there I'll begin using soon. So thanks.

Here's all the ones I have so far for removing the right-click context menus items that I don't want...

Hey,

Thanks for the internet shortcut one. :)

Well what do you know I figured it out.

;Remove Print From PHP Files
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TextPad.php\shell\print]

;Remove Print From PDF Files
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FoxitReader.Document\shell\print]

;Remove Print From Word Docs
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.8\shell\Print]

;Remove Print From PowerPoint Docs
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PowerPoint.Show.8\shell\Print]

As you can see its default app plus file name.

OMG:

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Printers]

There you go that will stop printing on accident. Thats why I want to remove. Finding myself clicking print on accident a lot.

The cool thing is you can still print in appz it seems. I just tried word and still prints fine, but when clicking print from a context menu it just turns on the printer if its off and spits out a blank page. So it does not print at all. No more wasted paper cause I forgot to hit the cancel button fast enough. hehe

This one is cool :lol: :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Remove Send To Menu
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To]

Well I can not think of any more ATM.

Well good night,

Will

this is for using a different cursor on the logon screen :) ...

set the desired cursors to replace the ones by default. export key "[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-random-strings\Control Panel\Cursors]".

open the reg file with notepad and change the key before with "[HKEY_USERS\.default\Control Panel\Cursors]".

import it during uA or add it to your current regtweaks file ;)

Hi , is there an registry method to permanently disable windows messenger update nag ...

"A new version of Windows Messenger is now available click here for more information"

thanks

This will prevent Windows Messenger or MSN Messenger from being installed

;Prevents Windows Messenger from being installed
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Messenger\Client]
"Disabled"=dword:00000001
"PreventAutoRun"=dword:00000001
"PreventAutoUpdate"=dword:00000001
"PreventBackgroundDownload"=dword:00000001
"PreventRun"=dword:00000001

This is all you need to prevent the update nag

;Prevents Windows Messenger from being updated
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Messenger\Client]
"PreventAutoUpdate"=dword:00000001
"PreventBackgroundDownload"=dword:00000001

You wouldn't know how to remove "Make available offline" from an Internet Shortcut, would you?

That would be:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Remove Make Available Offline From Internet Shortcuts
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{FBF23B40-E3F0-101B-8488-00AA003E56F8}]

Also I have to do both for it to work:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Remove Print From Internet Shortcut
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\InternetShortcut\shell\print]

;Remove Print From Internet Shortcut 2
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\print]
