Windows XP Twenty Use Full Tips & Tweaks!

8)Load Internet Explorer the Fastest Way Possible:
Edit your link to start Internet Explorer to have -nohome after it. For Example: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome

This will load internet explorer very fast because it does not load a web page while it is loading. If you want to go to your homepage after it is loaded, just click on the home button.

9)Easy Way to Adjust LargeSystemCache:
Normally, the tweak I've seen asks you to go into HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management and change the value to either O or 1 to the adjustment the LargeSystemCache.

  • However, in Windows XP, all you have to do is:
  • Right-click My Computer.
  • Select Properties.
  • Click Advanced.
  • Choose Performance.
  • Click Advanced again.
  • Select either Programs or System Cache under Memory Usage.
  • Programs = 0 for the registry tweak equivalent
  • System Cache = 1 for the registry tweak equivalent

10)Shutdown XP Faster:
Like previous versions of windows, it takes long time to restart or shutdown windows XP when the "Exit Windows" sound is enabled. To solve this problem you must disable this useless sound.

Click Start button.

Go to settings > Control Panel > Sound, Speech and Audio devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds.

Then under program events and windows menu click on "Exit Windows" sub-menu and highlight it. Now from sounds you can select, choose "none" and then click Apply and OK.

Now you should see some improvements when shutting down your system.

11)Easily Disable Messenger:
Go into: C:/Program Files/Messenger. Rename the Messenger folder to "MessengerOFF".

This does not slow down Outlook Express or hinder system performance.

  • 12)Turn Off Autoplay for Program CDs:
    How can you stop Windows XP from launching program CDs?
  • Click Start, click Run, type GPEDIT.MSC to open Group Policy in the Microsoft Management Console.
  • Double-click Computer Configuration, double-click Administrative templates, double-click System, and then click Turn off autoplay.
  • The instructions on your screen describe how to configure this setting. Click Properties to display the setting dialog.
  • Click Enabled, and choose CD-ROM drives, then click OK, to stop CD autoplay.
  • This setting does not prevent Autoplay for music CDs.

13)Synchronize Your Computer Clock with an Internet Time Server:
Does your computer have the right time? If your computer is not part of a domain, you can synchronize your computer clock with an Internet time server. To do so:

  • Double–click the time on your task bar.
  • Click the Internet Time tab.

Select the time server you want to use and make sure to select the Automatically synchronize with an Internet time
server check box.
