 Post subject: Enable & Disable Memory Dumps.
New postPosted: Mon Dec 06, 2010 3:05 pm 
For this post the author Makcalable has received thanks - 2: bxrobo, Rich

Enable or Disable Memory Dumps Initially for windows 7 but will also work for Windows XP (screen shots different) same instructions.

Dump options can be configured by going to System Properties on your computer. Under Startup and Recovery is a Settings button, which you can click to choose which of the three dump options you would like to have. It also shows you the file name and location where the dump file is created.

Ok, this is how, Go to COMPUTER > RIGHT CLICK > SELECT PROPERTIES > ADVANCED SYSTEM SETTINGS;

Image


> Under the advanced tab select > SETTINGS;

Image

> Choose you preferred SETTINGS UNDER DROP DOWN MENU;

Image

For a more detailed look into Physical Memory Dump Problems/Options Go here for the Source of this Information.

Thought this may come in useful should you encounter bsod problems so that you can analyse the cause of system crashes.

 Post subject: speed up taskbar thumbnails in Windows7
New postPosted: Fri Dec 10, 2010 5:35 pm 

speed up taskbar thumbnails in Windows7

This is how to speed up taskbar thumbnails in Windows7, Some of you may already know this neat trick.

First off Open the Windows 7 registry editor.

Go to; HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse

locate MouseHoverTime key in right pan of registry editor.
Image

Right click MouseHoverTime click modify and change value from 400 to any value less then 100 (400 is milliseconds) lower the value faster the thumbnail preview. (I use 1)

Click ok and close the registry editor window.

Hope you found this useful :mrgreen:

Now just logout or restart Explorer.exe before the changes take effect.

To restart explorer.exe CTRL + ALT + DEL Then select Start Task Manager > under processes find explorer.exe and end process.

To restart explorer.exe click on FILE select new task run and type in explorer.exe then hit enter.

 Post subject: Not my idea this one!
New postPosted: Sun Dec 12, 2010 3:23 pm 
For this post the author Makcalable has received gratitude : Rich

If you are a bit more than irritated with Windows 7 or Vista’s habit of changing the Sleep/Shutdown button into an Install Updates and Shut Down button whenever there are updates from Windows Update.

Well below will show you how you can manually hack the the registry;

Open up regedit.exe using the start menu search box and then browse down to the following key, creating the key if it doesn’t exist;

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

Add a 32-bit DWORD value called NoAUAsDefaultShutdownOption with a value of 1. No reboot should be necessary.

Now the Sleep button should be back to the way it was, but if you wanted to use the Install Updates and Shut Down option, it’s still available via the shutdown menu.

There is a little tool you can use to do this instead, but i didn't add it to this post as i think when performing these tasks you should manually do it yourself so you know exactly what is being changed!
This is not my idea but came accross this and thought it would be nice to add to the Tips & Trick Thread ;)

 Post subject: Disable or Re enable the Taskbar Thumbnail Preview feature
New postPosted: Mon Dec 20, 2010 5:59 pm 

This is a quick tip for Windows 7 Only

Click on Start button and type GPEdit.msc in Search text box then hit Enter.

Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar in left pane of Local Group Policy Editor.

Image

Now look in the Right Pane for Taskbar Thumbnails it should be the last one in the list and double click on it;

Select Enabled

Image

Click Apply then OK to make the taskbar thumbnails Disabled.

To re-enable the Taskbar preview feature just repeat the steps above but set it this time to Disabled or Not Configured.

Now there are many many features here that you can Disable or Enable, this will save you going through the registry to to add or change value's, this is by far the safest and easiest way to making simple modifications to your windows 7 features.

The Local Group Policy Editor is quite common for the Advanced user not so much for Novice's.

Hope you found this useful! ;)

 Post subject: Advanced Appearance Settings

(Windows 7 & Vista)

Ok, here I have written this guide as simply as possible could for you to follow, below are just a couple of examples of how windows can be transformed in the way of Colour/Font/Size/Style.... Looks daunting but once you get into the settings it all becomes very easy;


Right click on a empty space on the desktop and click on Personalize;

Click on Window Colour;

Image

Click on Advanced Appearance settings;

Image

Select the Item that you want to Modify;
(Not all of these items will have the option to change the font)

Image

Example 1
How To Change the Font/size/bold/italic for Icon's;

1. Click on the drop down menu under Item then select "Icon"

2. Now use the drop down munu under Size and select your required size.

3. Now select B for bold to make the text more predominant.

4. Now select I for Italic to change the style click on the Italic Button to highlight as you did above for the Boldness.

Ok now you have changed yourFont Size and Style for your Desktop & personal folder's.

Image

Example 2
How to change the Active Title Bar/fonts/size/Bold;

1. Click on the drop down menu under Item then select Active Title Bar

2. Now use the drop down menu under Size then select your required size.

3. Now select B for Bold to make the text more predominant.

4. Now select I for Italic to change the style click on the Italic Button to highlight as you did above for the Boldness.

5. Now to change the colour there are 2 boxes to choose from here.

Image

Now these are just a couple of examples but there are many things you can change to re style the way your windows look.

So go on have and have a bit of fun!

Just a note; on picture quality, yes some are pretty poor but i will have these sorted by the end of the night, i am new to tutorials and decided to start making them, but now i have mastered how to mark up pictures correctly a while ago, i should have updated them by now, so apologies for that. LOL

I quite enjoyed making them and have some more but i could post them here as i had noticed that there were similar tutorials within minty's guides.

Bugsy
