    Thanks smoothvibes.

    I always find the mouse very inconvenient because my hand has to move from KB to Mouse and back. This slows me down. Hence I am a big KB shortcuts fan.

    This is one of the reasons why I HATE MS 2007 suite because they have rearranged or got rid of many KB shortcuts.

    Thanks Smooth vibes, The quoted ones are new for me, happy to learn these.

    Taking abt the below:

    • Windows Logo+D (Display the desktop)
    • Windows Logo+M (Minimize all of the windows)
    • Windows Logo+SHIFT+M (Restore the minimized windows)

    You Can use "Windows Logo+D" for all the three actions i.e display destop, minimize all the windows and restoring the minimized windows

    Hope I am adding something

    - ALT + ENTER View the properties for the selected item
    - F4 key Display the Address bar list in My Computer or
    - NUM LOCK + Asterisk (*) Display all of the subfolders that are under the selected folder

    2. Lock Windows to protect computer
    You can lock Windows to protect the computer when leaving the station easily by creating a shortcut with the path rundll32.exeuser32.dll, LockWorkStation. The Windows key + L is also a shortcut to this feature.

    3. Edit sysoc.inf to list all software
    To show all software that can be removed from your computer (including protected Windows services), you can manually edit (using notepad for example) the sysoc.inf file located in Windows\inf\. Just remove the word hide next to the software pack.
    *Note* - use this at your own risk. Removing critical components of the system will make Windows instable.

    4. Windows XP comes with IPv4 and IPv6
    Windows XP comes both IPv4 and IPv6 support. To enable IPv6, you can install the protocols needed with the command "ipv6 install" in the command-prompt. Then type ipv6 /? to see the options. The installation will not remove the IPv4 protocols so your current configuration will still work.

    5. Access Task Manager with shortcut
    To access the Task Manager easier, you can make a shortcut that points to %windir%\system32\taskmgr.exe.

    6. Stop treating ZIP files like Folders
    If you don't want your Windows XP to treat ZIP files like folders, you can disable this component by running regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll at the command prompt or Run dialog. If you start missing it, you can enable it by typing regsvr32 zipfldr.dll.

    7. Run program as diffrent user
    You can run a program as a different user. Right click an application and select Run As command.

    8. Switch users leaving applications opened
    You can switch users leaving the applications opened too (*NOTE* use this only when needed since it could lead to system instability).
    Go to Task Manager - processes and end the process explorer.exe. This will end only your session and not all applications. Then go to Applications tab, click New task and type runas /user:domainname\username explorer.exe. A password prompt will appear to login to the desired username. The user's session will start, with all your previously applications running.
    I recommend to open first a command-line prompt and type runas /? to see all the options available.

    9. Rename multiple files in Windows at once
    Rename multiple files in Windows at once. Select them all, right click and select Rename. Enter the desired name. They will be renamed using what you specified, with a number in brackets to distinguish them.

    10. Task kill feature in Windows
    Windows has a task kill feature similar to Linux. Go to a command prompt and run the command tasklist to see running processes with PID numbers. Then type tskill <PID> to end the specific task. This forces an instant closing of the task.

    11. Edit features with GPEDIT.MSC
    You can edit many features by running gpedit.msc. You can add log on/log off scripts here and many features.

    12. Edit accounts in the command prompt
    You can edit accounts by running "control userpasswords2" at the command prompt.

    13. Use systeminfo.exe to see System Information
    You can use the systeminfo.exe command in the command prompt to see System Information, including all Windows updates and hotfixes.

    14. Disable system services for maximum performance
    There are system services that you can disable to free up the system's load. To access the interface that permits you to make changes to system's services, type services.msc and the command prompt.
    This is a list of services that are *usually* useless and can be safely disabled.
    alerter
    Application Layer Gateway Service,
    Application Management
    Automatic Updates
    Background Intelligent Transfer
    Clipbook
    Distributed Link Tracking Client
    Distributed Transaction Coordinater
    Error Reporting Service
    Fast User Switching Compatibility
    IMAPI CD-Burning
    Indexing Service
    IPSEC Services
    Messenger
    Net Logon
    Net Meeting
    Remote Desktop Sharing
    Network DDE
    Network DDE DSDM
    Portable Media Serial Number
    Remote Desktop Help Session Manager
    Remote Registry
    Secondary Logon
    Smartcard
    SSDP Discovery Service
    Uninterruptible Power Supply
    Universal Plug and Play Device Host
    Upload Manager
    Webclient
    Wireless Zero Configuration
    WMI Performance Adaptor

    *NOTE*: Make sure you don't need them since some applications you're using could depend on them. If you make any application to fail by disabling any of the services, go back and enable it again.

    15. Repair Windows XP by using the XP installation CD
    If your system failes to start due to an error related to missing HAL.DLL, invalid Boot.ini or any other critical system boot files you can repair this by using the XP installation CD. Simply boot from your XP Setup CD and enter the Recovery Console. Then run "attrib -H -R -S" on the C:\Boot.ini file and delete it. Run "Bootcfg /Rebuild" and then Fixboot.

    One keyboard shortcut I use almost daily for deleting items without having to go and empty the recycling bin is to highlight the item (single left click or hover depending weather your system is set to single or double click) & then hold shift and then hit delete and then enter to confirm the delete.
    Having to go and empty a recycling bin for me is a useless waste of time (double work) and also hard drive space.

    Also turning off the remote registry service and remote assistance, & remote desktop services is paramount for me. Hijacking malwares are based on these services being turned ON !!!

    Thumbs up XP Start Menu Edition Tips

    1.
    Add More program shortcuts to Recently used Menu


    The Windows XP user interface has some learning features, whereby it will customize itself to fit your computing style. One of the most obvious examples of this is the frequently used programs section on the bottom left side of the start menu, where shortcuts for the programs you have most recently used are displayed. Normally, this section only has room for about six program icons, but it’s a fast and handy way to access your software, so why not add more?

    To increase the amount of icons in the frequently used programs list right

    click on the start menu and choose ‘properties.’

    Select the ‘customize’ button to the right of the ’start menu’ option.

    Change the ’select an icon size for programs’ option to ’small icons’ and in the ‘number of programs on start menu’ counter below, enter a new value based on how many icons you would like to see.

    Realistically, depending on your desktop resolution you are not likely to be able to fit more than 15 or so icons here, but enter a higher number if you wish.

    The system will cut off what it can’t display. Hit ‘ok’ and enjoy your newly useful start menu.


    2.
    Remove the Frequently Used Programs List From the Start Menu


    In complete contradiction to the previous tip, this will show you how to wipe out the frequently used programs section of the start menu altogether. The trouble with this feature is that it only shows the programs you have last used. You have no control over it other than to use your programs frequently. The ‘pinned’ programs section above the frequently used programs section of the start menu, on the other hand, displays whatever shortcuts you want it to.

    To obtain more space for pinned programs, you can remove the frequently used programs completely.

    To do this open Regedit:
    Navigate to ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\Explorer’.

    Create a new DWORD value called ‘NoStartMenuMFUprogramsList’ and give it the value ‘1′.

    Reboot or restart the explorer process to enable this tip. Now you have much more start menu space to drag and drop your own shortcuts.
