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.
