Registry Tweaks & Tricks
Dec 16, 2012, 11:05 AM
Just thought it would be cool to make a thread where everyone could share any Windows 7 Registry Tweaks or Tricks they may know.
It would be fun to find new & strange ways to customize your PC.
Thanks for sharing.

registry tweaks tricks

One I know is when you hold down the Shift key, all the animations like minimizing and closing Windows happen in slow motion.
To do this, navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM
Create a new DWORD value with the name "AnimationsShiftKey" (without quotes).
Then change the hex value to 1.
Restart your machine.
Next time you log in, you'll see any animation happen in slow motion.
This includes minimizing, closing and opening windows. While in the Flip 3D menu.

Well then I will say one thing:
Only try the things in this thread if you're experienced and know that you won't end up messing something up. Otherwise, don't bother trying anything.
But my point is mostly to share tricks. Not to try them out if uncertain about anything.

Maybe, but there might be something that someone knows that might not be as easy to find just by searching on google.
