Tweaks [Merged]

Recommended Posts

In v1.3.0.41A+ you can now select reg files on the AIO Tool (Tweak Tab), you don't have to convert the reg file, Win Toolkit will do this for you. This new feature lets you import your own custom tweaks via Win Toolkit.

------------------------------------------------------

My point is that you don't have to make a request for every tweak BUT if you think a tweak will be great for other users, feel free to share in this thread. Also make sure W7T does not already contain the tweak(s).

--Zimmer---

a handy reference for tweaks is the Group Policy Settings Reference - this lists the registry keys

here's the direct link to the Win 7/Server 2008 sheet...

I don't think it's an option with w7t 1.30-19a, but it would be nice to mount an image and have file system access to read and write to the wim. For an example, a batch file could be ran to manually remove things that w7t can't remove, and you can manually inject some files simply by copying and pasting.

Also, this may or may not be posted/requested, but there are a couple registry tweaks that I'd like to see in the toolkit

remove run as admin context menu

remove send to context menu

remove pin to taskbar/start menu context menu

remove restore previous versions context menu

remove open context menu

I was doing a bit of surfing, and I decided to find you a list of tweaks that your W7T does not appear to have along with the settings that go with the tweaks. I hobbled these together in no particular order which I thought would be good for customization:

1. Prevent Windows Update from Forcibly Rebooting Your Computer (Machine option, goes under system or misc)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001

2. Change Windows Update Reboot Timeout and/or Enabledness (Machine option, goes under system or misc)

(Set at enabled, timeout in minutes, currently 4 hours)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"RebootRelaunchTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000001
"RebootRelaunchTimeout"=dword:000000F0

3. Stop Windows Update from Hijacking the Sleep/Shutdown Button (User or machine option, goes under system or misc)

This allows for an actual shutdown/sleep without installing any updates. The default option now becomes an option on the shutdown menu. (Can be done on each user's account or the whole machine, option given is for the machine.)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAUAsDefaultShutdownOption"=dword:00000001

4. Disable Aero Shake in Windows 7 (User option, goes under Explorer)

One of the interesting new features in Windows 7 is the way you can grab a window by the title bar and "shake" it back and forth to minimize everything else. This option disables that "feature".

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows]
"NoWindowMinimizingShortcuts"=dword:00000001

5. Disable All Notification Balloons (User option, goes under system or misc)

If you find the popup notification balloons in the Windows system tray to be too annoying, you might be interested to know that you can completely disable them. This would be an extreme option, of course… typically you can just turn them off in any offending applications, but if you want to disable them across the board, this is the solution.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"EnableBalloonTips"=dword:00000000

6. Add Registry Editor shortcut to the Control Panel (Machine option, goes under system or misc)

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}]
@="Registry Editor"
"InfoTip"="Starts the Registry Editor"
"System.ControlPanel.Category"="5"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}\DefaultIcon]
@="%SYSTEMROOT%\\regedit.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}\Shell\Open\Command]
@=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,\
00,5c,00,72,00,65,00,67,00,65,00,64,00,69,00,74,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,\
00,00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}]
@="Add Registry Editor to Control Panel"

7. Make the Taskbar Buttons Switch to the Last Active Window in Windows 7 (User option, goes under Explorer)

When selecting the taskbar button with Aero Peek Enabled, all open windows in that program show up. This option switches just to the last open window.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"LastActiveClick"=dword:00000001

I would like to suggest a "re-work" of your 'Start Menu' options.

The final option information I have deals with the default option of the "Shutdown menu"

A. 'Log off' (dword:00000001)

B. Shutdown (dword:00000002)

C. Restart (dword:00000004)

D. Sleep (dword:00000010)

E. Switch User (dword:00000100)

F. Lock (dword:00000200)

"Start_PowerButtonAction"=dword:00000004

At a minimum, I would like to have the new options for the directories with three choices. The rest you can work in (or not) as you see fit.

I don't know if it's possible to integrate it due to it's dynamic keys.

Dear all,

Herewith the information to configure the task scheduler. It's a two way job. First the registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tasks

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree

And second the physical files of each task.

C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\

So for instance, if you want to get rid of the scheduled defrag you do the following.

You delete the following key from the registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tasks\{5C0AEEEA-C154-45BE-8499-BEA5F11BAFF6}

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows\Defrag

And the equivalent folder and task file.

C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\Defrag\ScheduledDefrag

Cheers

Is there a way implemented in W7T to prevent this in Event Viewer?

"The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because the shadow copy storage could not grow due to a user imposed limit."

How big the space its needed for a tipical shadow copy in Windows 7? How about limiting it to a number of copies or an amount of GB needed for lets say 3 copies?

Any one know this tweek? Could it be implemented if it's not already?

After having some issues, I decided to investigate further, and came out with the following list of working tweaks (tested on a live system, and not through W7T for now), which aren't included in W7T:

Working useful tweaks for an overclock-er / bench-er:

7. Set Paging File To c:\pagefile.sys = 512 Mb (with the following description: only use this for a system that has at least 4 GB of RAM, 6 or more preferred)


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]
"PagingFiles"=hex(7):63,00,3a,00,5c,00,70,00,61,00,67,00,65,00,66,00,69,00,6c,\
00,65,00,2e,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,20,00,35,00,31,00,32,00,20,00,35,00,31,00,\
32,00,00,00,00,00

8. More started threads / tasks by default - this isn't recommended if you're into power saving / global warming / saving the planet. :D It contradicts the concept of IDLE, as it always keeps a number of tasks (workers) active and ready. More about it here. You can change the last two digits of the dword with any number from 01 to 16. I decided to use 08 - 8 threads always active - the middle number.

Windows is full of Registry tweaks that can optimise your PC for a variety of tasks. When the OS boots, for instance, it creates threads to carry out system tasks. Adding more can improve performance on a busy PC, or waste resources if there's not much to do.



Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Executive]
"AdditionalCriticalWorkerThreads"=dword:00000008
"AdditionalDelayedWorkerThreads"=dword:00000008

NOT working tweaks - it would be very useful ones:

- Change power plan - the changing of the preffered power plan described by zavan at post isn't working at all. Hopefully someone can make a working .reg for this, or maybe an .inf out of the powercfg guide from here. So, the following code is useless for setting the preffered plan to High performance...


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D}]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\User\Default\PowerSchemes]
"ActivePowerScheme"="8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c"


I also attached the working tweaks. :)

Edited the previous two posts, and I continue the list with the following very useful tweaks:

9. Disable the Send unique player ID through WMP feature - security/privacy reasons - the only tweak found out to be needed for my system by the well-known TuneUp Utilities 2012 tool

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences]
"SendUserGUID"=hex:00

10. Disable Open File Security Warning - this is quite original, and really working - tested it, the warning is gone. Changed from LowRiskFileTypes to ModRiskFileTypes - hope the security will be better with Mod than with Low.



Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments]
"SaveZoneInformation"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]

How about a new category in the tweaks section from Win Toolkit AIO - Scheduled tasks?

11. Remove Scheduled Defragmentation Task - removes only the task, that is re-generated when the user opens Disk Defragmenter.



Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tasks\{C016366B-7126-46CA-B36B-592A3D95A60B}]

13. Remove Scheduled Windows Error Reporting - original and working - needs to be run concurrently with disabling the Windows Error Reporting service


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tasks\{D0250F3F-6480-484F-B719-42F659AC64D5}]

Also, other very useful tweaks, not found in Win Toolkit...

14. IE tweak - Do not notify when IE downloads complete


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"NotifyDownloadComplete"="no"

15. IE tweak - Disable Send information to the Internet IE prompt

00,6d,00,2e,00,63,00,70,00,6c,00,00,00

22. Hide network location wizard - this is equivalent with setting all new networks to public ones aka no new Home Group networks.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Network\NetworkLocationWizard]

An option to enter an IP-range for this tweak:

Stop Any Security Files Warnings when doing any action on networked files.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges\Range666]

"*"=dword:00000001

":Range"="192.168.1.*"

The RangeNumber [Range666] used here can be any high up number so it doesn't intefere with existing ranges.

The option to enable this and enter an IP range under the Tweaks list would be great.
