1. Access Your Folders From Taskbar

Accessing folders from taskbar saves a lot of time as we don’t have to open the windows explorer window and browse to the required folder through along path.
a). Right click an empty spot on your taskbar between start button and system tray.
b) Click Toolbars and then choose the “New Toolbar” option from it.

c) Then a small window will open which allows you to choose the folder that you wish to make a toolbar.

2. Save Main Memory Of Your Pc

Saving main memory will definitely speed up your PC to some extent. When you run any applicationon your PC,  xp stores files known as DLLs in memory and even if you close the program, xp will leave it there for later use which slows down your PC. Here’s a registry fix for this problem

a). Go to start and open run, type regedit and enter  to open registry settings.

b).When regedit is opened browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrent Version.

c). Select the explorer folder.

d). Now click Edit->New->DWORD value and name it AlwaysUnloadDll, press enter.

e).Now double click it and assign it a value of 1.

Exit regedit and reboot.

3. Speed Up Opening Start Menu

a). Go to start and open run, type regedit and enter  to open registry settings.

b). When regedit is opened browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop and select Desktop.

c). Now find the key MenuShowDelay, change its value to 150 whose earlier value would most probably be 400.
Exit regedit and reboot.

4. Change The Default Location Of My Documents

Many people have a habit of dropping items into My Documents from the desktop. But when they re-install windows they generally forget to copy data from My Documents and as a result they loose all the data. Here’s a simple way to change My Documents default location.

a). Right click on my documents and click on properties.

b). Click on move and a dialog box will open which will ask for the new destination of My Documents.

Choose the new destination and click OK.

5. Make Your Drives Invisible

Well this one can be used as a prank on your friends’ PC. With this trick you will be able to disable the display of drives when you click on my computer.

a). Go to start and open run, type regedit and enter  to open registry settings.

b). When regedit is opened browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer select explorer.

c).Now click Edit->New->DWORD value and name it as NoDrives and press enter.

d).Now double click it and enter the decimal number corresponding to the drive(s) you want to hide as listed in the table below, but don’t forget to choose decimal value after double clicking NoDrives.

Drive Number to hide
A: 1
B: 2
C: 4
D: 8
E: 16
F: 32
G: 64
H: 128

6. Sort Start Menu Alphabetically
