Chapter 13. A Few Good Hacks: Some Useful Registry Tweaks

IN THIS CHAPTER

A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

Kahlil Gibran

An old Scottish proverb says that “fine words butter no parsnips.” Chapter 12, “Getting to Know the Windows 98 Registry,” presented plenty of fine words (if that's not too immodest a thing to say) about the Registry and how you work with it, but now it's time to butter a Registry parsnip or two. In other words, you're well versed in the theory of the Registry, so now you need to get up to speed with the practice. What kinds of things can you do with the Registry? In particular, what kinds of things can you do with the Registry that can't be done via the Control Panel, Explorer, or any of the applets? That's what this chapter is all about. I'll show you a fistful of practical Registry techniques that lets you customize Windows 98 in undreamed-of ways.
