    More Hacks

    1. Disable the beep when you plug and unplug the charger or sync cable:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Volume

    Under charger connect sound, find chargerconnect.wav and either delete it or put quote marks around it and window won't recognize it. Do the same thing for charger disconnect.

    2. Disable the beep when initiating a call:

    HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\Dialing
    Find Script and delete the "P".

    3. Disable the beeps on volume increase and decrease:
    a. HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\LoudestInCallVolume Change the 'Script' value to blank (erase the 'p')
    b. HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\QuietestInCallVolume Change the 'Script' value to blank (erase the 'p')
    c. HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\StandardInCallVolume Change the 'Script' value to blank (erase the 'p')



    5. Speed Up Internet Explorer

    HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/MaxRequestThreads = 5
    HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/MaxConnectionsPerServer = 5
    To create these you need to navigate to HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/. When I did this and looked for MaxRequestThread & MaxConnectionsPerServe they weren't there. So you have to add them your self. I'm using PHM Registry(it's free & just as good as Resco) so My method maybe just a little different that what you would have to do. Nav over to IE/Main/ folder, choose from your menu "edit"-> "add new Dword Value. Add the line "MaxRequestThreads" (no quotes). Then you have to add the value number. I've set mine to 10. Save it. Then do the same over for the "MaxConnectionsPerServer"

    6. Disabling shutter wav.

    HKLM/System/Pictures/Camera/OEM/SoundFile
    Find the wav. file named ShutterSound312.wav and put quotes around it. Save it.

    7. Stop backlight dimming on inactivity.

    HKCU/ControlPanel/Backlight
    Edit "BatteryTimeOut2" (Default is 30 = 1min) I changed mine to 60, now dimming,backlight and screen all shut off after 2 mins of inactivity.

    8. Disable Security Warning When Installing Apps

    HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies

    Look for the DWORD "0000101a". Change it's value from 0 to 1

    9. Change Scroll Bar Thickness

    HKLM\System\GWE

    For horizontal scroll bar look for the DWORD's: cxHScr & cyHScr.

    For vertical scroll bars look for the DWORD's : cxVScr & cyVScr.

    The default value is 13. Change it to what ever you want. Higher numbers make it thicker, lower numbers make it thinner.

    10. Increase Ringer Volume

    HKCU\ControlPanel\SoundCategories\Ring

    Find the "AttenuationCategory" Default is 2, Max is 5.

    Note: When I turned mine up to 5 it was way to loud, lots of distortion. Set it to 4 and with the ring volume set to max makes it nice and low with no distortion.

    the speed hack increases the speed of the page loading of the internet on the q9h, or at least it seems that way to me, or it's just a mind thing.

    ...decreased the volume on my Q9c also. I tried the other direction (number 1), but that made it silent. Does anyone know what the "Speaker" DWORD value does under the same folder?

    I can't tell the difference between 1 and 2 on my USCC Q9c. Which Q9c do you have?

    I just did the hack and will let you know what happens on my Q9C.
    I had no ringer after I did this. Changed back to "2" and it is back to normal.
