What is Windows Registry?

This Registry script can be used in Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and later OS without any problem. We assure you it’ll not harm your system in any way and its completely safe to apply.

Recommended article from our sister website about latest Windows 10:

STEP 1: 

Copy following code and paste in Notepad. Save the file with the name “Tweaks.reg” (including quotes) and then run the file. It’ll ask for confirmation, accept it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAllFilesystemObjectsshellexContextMenuHandlersCopy To]@=”{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}”

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAllFilesystemObjectsshellexContextMenuHandlersMove To]@=”{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}”

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop]“AutoEndTasks”=”1”“HungAppTimeout”=”1000”“MenuShowDelay”=”8”“WaitToKillAppTimeout”=”2000”“LowLevelHooksTimeout”=”1000”

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelMouse]“MouseHoverTime”=”8”



STEP 2: 

Restart your system to take effect and get ready to experience super fast Windows.
Note: If you want to restore or uninstall this registry setup, copy following code and paste in Notepad. Save the file with the name “Restore Default Settings.reg” and then run the file. It’ll ask for confirmation, accept it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAllFilesystemObjectsshellexContextMenuHandlersCopy To]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAllFilesystemObjectsshellexContextMenuHandlersMove To]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop]“AutoEndTasks”=-“HungAppTimeout”=-“MenuShowDelay”=”400”“WaitToKillAppTimeout”=-“LowLevelHooksTimeout”=-

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelMouse]“MouseHoverTime”=”400”



If you are worried what this registry script is going to do in your system, here is a description of all the tweaks included in the file:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAllFilesystemObjectsshellexContextMenuHandlersCopy To]@=”{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}” 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAllFilesystemObjectsshellexContextMenuHandlersMove To]@=”{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}”

– Adds “Copy To” and “Move To” options in files and folders context menu, so that you can easily copy and move them to other locations.

AutoEndTasks – Forces Windows to automatically end user services when the user logs off or shuts down the computer.

HungAppTimeout – Reduces system waiting time before killing user processes when the user clicks on “End Task” button in Task Manager.

MenuShowDelay – Decreases menus show delay time, it’ll make the menus show faster upon clicking.

WaitToKillAppTimeout – Reduces system waiting time before killing user processes when the user logs off or shuts down the computer.

LowLevelHooksTimeout – Reduces system waiting time before killing not responding services.

MouseHoverTime – Reduces popup delay time to show popup description faster when you move mouse cursor over an item.

NoLowDiskSpaceChecks – Disables the low disk space check so that you don’t get the annoying low disk space notification in system tray.

LinkResolveIgnoreLinkInfo – Prevents Windows from wasting time in searching for a program which no longer exists in your system when you try to open its shortcut.

NoResolveSearch – Prevents Windows from searching for the disk drive to resolve a shortcut.

NoResolveTrack – Prevents Windows from using NTFS file system’s tracking feature to resolve a shortcut.

NoInternetOpenWith – Disables “Search on Internet” prompt in “Open with” window so that you can directly see available programs list.

WaitToKillServiceTimeout – Reduces system waiting time before stopping services when the services are notified about shut down process.

>>Locking Folders:

  • Consider you want to lock a folder named XXXX in your E:, whose path is E:XXXX.
  • Now open the Notepad and type the following
[code]ren xxxx xxxx.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}[/code]
  • Where xxxx is your folder name. Save the text file as loc.bat in the same drive.
  • Open another new notepad text file and type the following
[code]ren xxxx.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} xxxx[/code]
  • Save the text file as key.bat in the same drive.
Steps to lock the folder:
  • To lock the xxxx folder, simply click the loc.bat and it will transform into control panel icon which is inaccessible.
  • To unlock the folder click the key.bat file. Thus the folder will be unlocked and the contents are accessible.

>>Locking Drives:

We don’t usually prefer to lock our drives, but sometimes it becomes nesscary. Say for instance you might have stored your office documents in D: and you don’t want your kids to access it, in such case this technique can be useful for you. Please don’t try this tweak with your root drive (usually C: is the root drive) since root drives are not intended to be locked because they are mandatory for the system and application programs.
  • Start & Run and type Regedit to open Registry editor
  • BrowseHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurre ntVersionPoliciesExplorer
  • Create a new DWORD value NoViewOnDrive and set its value as
2^ (Alpha Number of Drive Letter-1) where Alpha number are simple counting of alphabets from A to Z as 1 – 26
For example: to lock C:, Alpha number of C is 3 so 2^ (3-1) = 4 (decimal value)
  • To lock more drives, calculate the value of each drive and then set sum of those numbers as value
  • To unlock your drive just delete the key from the registry.
