 Post subject: Change Visual Effects
New postPosted: Tue Nov 30, 2010 7:28 pm 

(For Windows Vista & Windows 7)

Not all visual effects options are available in the Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions.

Change Visual Effects Through System Properties




1. Open the Start Menu.

2. Right click on the Computer and click on Properties.

3. Click on the Advanced System settings in the left blue pane, then close this window.
Image

4. Under the Advanced tab and Performance section, click on the Settings button.

Image


5. Now you will see the Visual Effects settings for you to select.

Image


6. Check the settings you want, and uncheck the settings you don't.

If you want to help improve performance, then these are the main common ones to uncheck;

* Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing
* Animations in the taskbar and Start Menu
* Enable transparent glass
* Fade or slide menus into view
* Fade or slide ToolTips into view
* Fade out menu items after clicking
* Show shadows under windows
* Slide open combo boxes



7. Thats it, Click on Apply and OK.

It's a pretty old Tip but its always good to refresh on things you hardly ever use or perform ;)

 Post subject: Command Prompt - Advanced Commands
New postPosted: Tue Nov 30, 2010 10:06 pm 

Command Prompt - Advanced Commands for System Information & Managing Active Tasks For Windows 7

Image

Here are just a few easy commands to remember

How to View Your System Information;

Command Prompt allows you to view system information by using a simple command called systeminfo. Type it and see what happens. a complete list of information about your operating system and computer components will be displayed. There are details like the version of the operating system, status of your memory or processor type, and some network information is available like IP or MAC addresses.

Display the List of Currently Running Processes;

To view the list of currently running processes, you have to use the tasklist command. Type tasklist and press Enter.

Stop a Process Using Taskkill;

To kill or stop a running process, you need to use the taskkill command. Let's assume that you want to stop the application SnspShot that is running on your computer, Its process is called Snapshot.exe. type the command taskkill /im snapshot.exe. The /im parameter is used to stop a process by typing process name.

To kill any running process, you need to have administrative permissions and run the Command Prompt as administrator.

How to Use Help in Command Prompt;

In Command Prompt you just have to type the help command and then press Enter. A list of all available commands will be displayed.

If a certain command interests you type help followed by the name of the command. Another way to do the same thing is to type command_name followed by the /? parameter.

Testing the Connection to a Website or Network/Internet Location;

To test your connection to a certain website or another network or Internet location, you can use the ping network command followed by a web-address or IP address. For example, if you want to check the connectivity to our website, without opening a web browser, type ping www.mintywhite.com and then press Enter.

Check Network Connections and Display Port Information;

With the netstat command you will be able to see active network connections between your system and any other systems on your network or the Internet.

The /a parameter shows all connections and listening ports.


Hope you found this useful ;)

This is for windows 7 as i have personally not tested on any other OS;


Change Disk Cleanup to Delete Files less than 7 Days old!

When using the Disk Clean Up Utility in Windows 7 you will find that it does not delete ALL temperary files, and this is because it set by default to keep files that are less than 7 days old.

However, if you dont use 3rd party registry cleaner's do clean up files and use the built in Disk Clean Up you will most probably find it a little bit annoying, so the next stage i will show you how to change this so it will delete files right up to 2 days old;

Firstly Open up regedit.exe through the Start Menu search or the run box, and then browse down to the following key;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Temporary Files


Now you will see the LastAccess value on the right hand side, which contains a value that specifies the number of days, which you can change to whatever you’d like.

Please keep it simple by only changing the value to no less than 2 as applications need temporary files if they are running.

See SnapShot View;

ALLWAYS BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES!

New postPosted: Fri Dec 03, 2010 1:05 pm 

If you have a backup of the genuine Windows product key, then it’s a good idea to remove the product key from the registry especially, if you are sharing your PC with others, and if you don’t want others retrieve and misuse the product key. The product key can be removed from the registry....Read More
