Tweaks: Visual Effects-Menu style-Normal vs. Flat


Recommended Posts

Could anyone tell me which registry setting stands behind this visual tweak so I can set it myself post-install and check/see if I like the change from normal (as I have it set now) or whether I can spot any difference at all?

And how do YOU set this - anyone with flat setting here? Could you post some menu screens what it looks like?

Flat Menus tweak can be set for Windows XP and above by enabling the UserPreferencesMask binary value's flag 0x00020000 (for more info about UserPreferencesMask check out my "unofficial reference" ;) ).
