Windows Hacks, Tips and Tricks

Published January 01, 2007

I have some secret Windows tips and tricks here. Many are problems which you may encounter, but for which Windows does not provide a ready-made solution.


Display a banner each time Windows boots

  • Start -> Run
  • Type regedit
  • Go to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WinLogon
  • Create a new string value in the right pane named LegalNoticeCaption and enter the value that you want to see in the menubar
  • Create a new string value and name it LegalNoticeText. Modify it and insert the message you want to display each time Windows boots.


Shutting down Windows the fastest way

  • Start -> Run
  • Type rundll.exe user.exe,exitwindows

Internet Explorer

Your browser logo shows something other than the IE logo. Maybe you have installed your ISP software and you have a different logo on the top right. How do you remove it?

  • Close all browser windows
  • Start -> Run
  • Type RunDLL32.EXE IEdkcs32.dll,Clear
  • Click on OK, and start Internet Explorer. You should find the old spinning IE logo.
