10 User-Friendly Windows Vista Tweaks


Laptop Magazine has a list of 10 Windows Vista tweaks that you may want to check out. The most interesting tweak is the ability to disable the annoying “allow/deny” pop-ups whenever an application is installed or needs to access the registry. However, doing so creates a security risk with IE 7.0.

Here’s the list:

  1. Turn Off User Account Control (this allows you to disable the ‘allow/deny’ pop-ups)
  2. Bring Back the File Menu
  3. Customize the Start Menu and Taskbars
  4. Create a Flip 3D Shortcut
  5. Activate Multi-file Tagging
  6. Automate Your Defragmentation Routine
  7. Expanded Right-Click Options
  8. Activate Three Clocks
  9. Activate Parental Controls
  10. Make Mobility Center Ever-Ready
