  1. A surprise for Windows users Microsoft is giving its Notepad app for Windows a surprising amount of new features. While the software giant hasn’t updated Notepad for years, the next Windows 10 update will include some highly requested additions. Microsoft is clearly listening to Windows 10 users who use notepad for development, logs, or simple text manipulation. You’ll soon be able to do wrap around find and replace alongside the ability to zoom into text by holding down the ctrl key and using the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Microsoft is also adding in extended line ending support so that Unix/Linux line endings (LF) and Macintosh line endings (CR) are supported in Notepad. The status bar will now be enabled by default in Notepad, and it includes the ability to display line and column numbers when word-wrap is enabled. Microsoft is also finally adding in ctrl+backspace support to delete a previous word in Notepad, and performance improvements for large files. You can now even search for words on Bing through Notepad by simply right clicking on them to get a new option. Microsoft’s Notepad additions follow the company updating its Windows Console for the first time in 20 years, and the surprise addition of the Linux command line to Windows 10. These new Notepad features will appear in the update currently codenamed Redstone 5, which is expected to debut later this year. Microsoft is now putting the finishing touches on the next major Windows 10 update, but it won’t include the popular tabs (Sets) feature for File Explorer and other apps. < Here >
  2. By Mehedi Hassan Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10 Redstone 5 to Insiders today. The latest build, 17713, brings a couple of improvements to Notepad, as well as Microsoft Edge, and some IT Pro features. In Redstone 5, Microsoft is upgrading Notepad to include some much-requested features. The company earlier added support for line endings to Notepad, and it’s now adding a couple of new features. First up, the Find feature in Notepad now supports wrap around when replacing words, and it also now remembers your preference for all the options so you don’t have to set them everytime you use the feature. Additionally, when you now select a word and then hit Ctrl+F, the Find dialog will automagically populate the dialog with the selected word for your own convenience. That’s not all — Notepad now supports text zooming with Ctrl + Plus and Ctrl + Minus, which is honestly amazing. And lastly, you can now display line and column numbers with word-wrap enabled, and use Ctrl + Backspace to delete the previous word. It’s also now faster at opening larger files. Edge is getting a number of improvements in this update, too. It now lets you set per-site media autoplay permissions from the website identification pane, so you can automatically block media playback on certain sites. The PDF reader includes some design tweaks to make all the different options more understandable, and the PDF toolbar can now be pinned to the top for easier access. It’s also now possible to lookup definitions of words in PDFs, Reading View, and Books. Build 17713 includes a number of features for IT Pros, and the general fixes — so make sure to checkout the full changelog here. The build is available to Insiders in the Fast Ring right now. In other news, Microsoft is resetting Skip Ahead as it’s nearing the public release of Redstone 5, but it will open up Skip Ahead again in the near future when you will once again be able to join the program, even if you aren’t part of Skip Ahead originally. Finally. Source
  3. For many years, Windows Notepad only supported text documents containing Windows End of Line (EOL) characters - Carriage Return (CR) & Line Feed (LF). This means that Notepad was unable to correctly display the contents of text files created in Unix, Linux and macOS. For example, here’s a screenshot of Notepad trying to display the contents of a Linux .bashrc text file, which only contains Unix LF EOL characters: As you can see, Notepad is incorrectly displaying the file’s contents, making the file look garbled. This has been a major annoyance for developers, IT Pros, administrators, and end users throughout the community. Today, we’re excited to announce that we have fixed this issue! Starting with the current Windows 10 Insider build, Notepad will support Unix/Linux line endings (LF), Macintosh line endings (CR), and Windows Line endings (CRLF) as usual. New files created within Notepad will use Windows line ending (CRLF) by default, but it will now be possible to view, edit, and print existing files, correctly maintaining the file’s current line ending format. Here’s a screenshot of the newly updated Notepad displaying the contents of the same Unix/Linux .bashrc file we saw earlier: Also note that the status bar indicates the detected EOL format of the currently open file. As with any change to a long-established tool, there’s a chance that this new behavior may not work for your scenarios, or you may prefer to disable this new behavior and return to Notepad’s original behavior. To do this, you can change the following registry keys in the following location to tweak how Notepad handles pasting of text, and which EOL character to use when Enter/Return is hit: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Notepad] < Here >

    Notepad Tricks You Should Try

    We can all agree that the Windows Notepad is basic and usually gets shunted out in favor of feature-filled alternatives. But Notepad is more powerful than it looks and we’ll introduce you to some of its hidden tricks. Soon, you’ll want to keep this ancient Windows program handy at all times by turning Notepad into a sticky note. Note: These tricks have been around from the time of Windows 7. I have tested all of them on Windows 10 as well. They still work! 1. Use Notepad as a Journal Did you know that you can program Notepad to add a timestamp? This makes it perfect for adding journal entries when you have a few minutes to spare during the day. To get an automatic timestamp, create a new text document, type in .LOG, and save the file. The next time you open the file, you should see the current date and time appear within it. Hit Enter, start recording your thoughts, and save them. As expected, every time you open the file, a fresh timestamp appears. If you want to add a quick timestamp on the fly, you could take a shortcut and hit F5 instead. This corresponds to the Time/Date item hidden in the Edit menu. 2. Get Line Count You’d like to view the number of lines in a Notepad document and you know that you’ll have to display the status bar for that. But a quick peek at the View menu shows you that the Status Bar option is grayed out, if you’re not on Windows 10 that is. What do you do now? It’s simple — head to the Format menu and turn off Word Wrap. Now you should be able to display the status bar from the View menu, and once you do, you can see the line count as well. To jump to a specific line, hit CTRL + G to bring up the Go To Line dialog, type in the line number you’d like to jump to, and hit Enter. This works even if you haven’t displayed the line count, because Notepad’s numbering system is active at all times. If you’d like to keep the status bar active all the time, i.e. with or without the Word Wrap option disabled, you’ll need to delve into the Windows registry and edit a specific key value. At this point we should warn you that if you tweak the wrong registry setting, it could mess up your Windows installation. To know what you’re getting into, read our guide on how to use the Windows registry and how not to accidentally mess up the registry. Ready to proceed? Great! Enter regedit into Windows search and hit Enter to open the Registry Editor. Next, look for the following key using the sidebar navigation: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Notepad. Once you have it selected in the sidebar, double-click on StatusBar in the right-side panel. Done? Now in the dialog box that has popped up, change the DWORD value from 0 to 1. 3. Add a Header and a Footer If you want to insert a header and/or a footer into a Notepad document, go to File > Page Setup…. In the dialog box that opens up, look for the Header: and Footer: fields and type in the content that you want to display in the header and footer. Can’t see the header and footer in the document itself? Don’t worry — that’s how it’s meant to be. Those elements will show up when you print the file. Since there’s no way to save the header/footer content from the Page Setup dialog, you’ll have to add it manually every time you print the file. Also, you can’t set up different headers and footers in Notepad like you can in Microsoft Word and other word processors. What’s cool about this Notepad feature is that using a few special commands, you can insert the filename, a timestamp, and page numbers in the header/footer and even align its contents left, right, or center. Here’s a snapshot of the commands you get to use: For example, if you want to display the current date (&d) and time (&t) on the left (&l) and the file name (&f) on the right (&r) in the header, this is the text that you’ll need to paste into the Header: field: &l&d&t&r&f 4. Find the Windows Product Key The easiest way to retrieve your Windows product key is by looking it up on the printed sticker that you’ll find on some part of your laptop or desktop, usually on the base or at the back. If that sticker is worn out or inaccessible, that’s not a problem. You can still retrieve the key from the Windows registry, as long as you haven’t formatted the hard drive, of course. To view the product key on your computer screen, you can use a third-party program like Belarc Advisor or even a Visual Basic (VB) script that retrieves the key from the registry. We’ll show you how to create such a script. First, open up a fresh Notepad document and paste in the following bit of code: Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") MsgBox ConvertToKey(WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId")) Function ConvertToKey(Key) Const KeyOffset = 52 i = 28 Chars = "BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789" Do Cur = 0 x = 14 Do Cur = Cur * 256 Cur = Key(x + KeyOffset) + Cur Key(x + KeyOffset) = (Cur \ 24) And 255 Cur = Cur Mod 24 x = x -1 Loop While x >= 0 i = i -1 KeyOutput = Mid(Chars, Cur + 1, 1) & KeyOutput If (((29 - i) Mod 6) = 0) And (i <> -1) Then i = i -1 KeyOutput = "-" & KeyOutput End If Loop While i >= 0 ConvertToKey = KeyOutput End Function Now save the file using the extension .vbs (instead of .txt). And that’s the VB script that will give you the product key when you run it! To run the script, double-click on the .vbs file that you just created and saved. You’ll then see a popup window with your product key. Hit CTRL + C if you’d like to copy the key. 5. Test Your Antivirus Software Want to find out if your computer’s antivirus program is working okay? You can use what is known as the EICAR test file to do the checking for you. Don’t worry, that’s not a virus-laden file we’re unleashing on your computer. It’s a simple text file that you’ll be creating in Notepad, with the following piece of harmless code saved to it: X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H* Your virus scanner should pick this file up as a virus and deal with it accordingly. If it does, it’s a sign that the antivirus program is working as expected. Of course, this does not guarantee that you’re protected from all viruses. 6. Create a Password-protected Folder With this trick, the idea is to create a deceptive file that you can use to unlock and reveal a secret folder as and when you need it. To begin with, create a new Notepad document and paste this code into it: cls @ECHO OFF title Folder Private if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER :CONFIRM echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N) set/p "cho=>" if %cho%==Y goto LOCK if %cho%==y goto LOCK if %cho%==n goto END if %cho%==N goto END echo Invalid choice. goto CONFIRM :LOCK ren Private "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" echo Folder locked goto End :UNLOCK echo Enter password to unlock folder set/p "pass=>" if NOT %pass%== your_password goto FAIL attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Private echo Folder Unlocked successfully goto End :FAIL echo Invalid password goto end :MDLOCKER md Private echo Private created successfully goto End :End Replace your_password in the code above with a password of your choice and save the file as a Batch file named locker.bat. I’ll digress a bit here to point out that you can automate various repetitive tasks with Batch files. When you run the locker.bat file (by double-clicking on it) for the first time, it creates a folder named Private in the same location as the .bat file. This folder is where you can stash away any files and folders that you’d like to keep to yourself. Now run the locker.bat file again. This asks you whether you want to lock the file. Hit Y, followed by Enter to confirm. You’ll see that the Private folder is no longer visible. To access the folder again, run locker.bat and when prompted, enter your password (the one you added to the code while saving the .bat file). If you have forgotten the password, drag and drop the locker.bat file into Notepad to view the password. This trick is fun, but it’s not foolproof — anyone who knows where to look and what to tweak can find the secret folder with ease. To display the secret folder yourself without running locker.bat, go to Folder Options > View and… …uncheck the box next to Hide protected operating system files, check the radio button for Show hidden files, folders, and drives. The folder might show up with the name Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} instead of Private. 7. Remove Formatting from Text Snippets Copy-pasting text snippets from one app to another comes with the problem of messed-up formatting. It’s better to paste in unformatted text and then format it using styles from the app that you’re pasting into. To do so, you’ll first need to strip the formatting from the copied text. The quickest way to do that? Use CTRL + SHIFT + V to paste unformatted text directly or, you could first paste the text into Notepad, which supports only plain text, and copy-paste it from there. Of course, that’s just one way to strip formatting when you copy-paste text. 8. Make Your Computer Speak You can get your computer to read a piece of text to you with a simple VB script that we’ll create using Notepad. Begin with a new document and paste in the code given below: Dim message, sapi message=InputBox("Repeat after me") Set sapi=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice") sapi.Speak message Use the File > Save As command to save the file with the extension .vbs. Now when you open the saved file, you’ll get a dialog box with a blank text field. Type in something for your computer to read aloud and hit OK. You’ll also want to take a look at these five other ways to get your Windows computer to read to you. In the code above, you can replace the text Repeat after me with a message of your choice and that is what you’ll see as a prompt in the dialog box when you run the script. Notepad Magic Who knew Notepad was capable of all these tricks? It has stayed more or less the same over the years, but it has turned out to be cooler than we thought. Article source

  14. DPI Scaling has arguably been the bane of Windows users looking for more visual fidelity with each advancing version of the operating system. Unfortunately, due to the way Windows processes text, display scaling has been frustrating endeavor at best for some users. However, with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, it looks as though the Windows team is looking more into improving the display scaling experience. Peter Felts, a senior program manager in the developer platform group guest hosted an Ask the Core Team blog post overviewing the technical aspects, tweaks, and improvements to display scaling. The post covers issues that includes efforts to bring legacy software scaling up to par with UWA performance and the issues with design patterns that have hindered a full-scale overhaul of Windows DPI adjusting. For a bit of background, another Microsoft employee by the name of Steve Wright covers three of the most common problems that occur with Windows display scaling. Problem Statement: Blurry text and UI components. Applications sized incorrectly (too big or too small). Applications are sized correctly and are not blurry, but have other layout issues (such as clipped text or other UI components). These problems are most frequently seen whenever the display scale factor of a Windows PC changes while the user is logged in and/or if an application is moved from the “main display” to a display that has a different display scale factor. With Windows rounding the corner on 30 years of public use, many still question the operating systems’ inability to nail down a decent display scaling experience. Why not simply do a system overhaul with the next iteration of Windows, be it Windows 7, 8, 10 or newer? Why doesn’t Microsoft Just Fix Display Scaling on Windows? This is a valid question that many of us have asked ourselves when joining teams that are working on this problem space. The main challenge that we face, however, is that many, many, applications that run on Windows are using a design pattern where they ask Windows for information about the system when they launch (questions such as how big the display is, what is the display scale factor, what is the size of the font that should be used for default text, as well as others) and then cache this information and never expect it to change. Because of this, even if Windows did start giving these applications information about a DPI change, most, if not all, of these applications wouldn’t even be asking and therefore would not respond correctly. Furthermore, if Windows did start providing dynamic display-scale-factor-related information this would be a nightmare for application compatibility and would probably cause more problems for application stability than it would help in terms of high DPI display issues. Enough with the why’s and how’s of Windows display shortcomings here is how the talented people behind Windows 10 and specifically, Windows 10 Redstone 1 update, have sought to address this long standing issue. RS! improvments for non-client area scaling Before the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, if an application developer tried to update their desktop application to respond to a display-scale-factor changes, they would soon discover that the NCA would not resize when the scale factor changed. This meant that their application would have undersized or oversized titlebars when the scale-factor changed (Figure 1). For the Windows 10 Anniversary Update we now support automatic scaling of NCA via use of a new “EnableNonClientDpiScaling” API. Next up, the use of Mixed-Mode DPI scaling, a process in which “we’ve broken the process-wide constraint on an application’s display-scaling mode such that developer can now specify a different scaling mode for each (top-level) window. In other words: developers can focus their development time on making the important parts of their UI handle display scaling well, while letting Windows handle the other windows in the application.” More RS1 scaling improvements Other improvements include the aforementioned support of “EnableNonClientDpScaling” and Mixe-Mode DPI have found their way into apps and services such as Office and Windows Presentation Framework (WPF). By no means has the Windows team done away with all the issues users have experienced with display scaling and Felts acknowledges that there were areas that were missed leading up to the Anniversary Update release. The team is hard at work trying to address desktop icon scaling, common control scaling and WinForms as well making the entire switching process a log less (logging in and out apply adjustments) endeavor. for more details on how Windows display scaling works or what the Windows team has planned to address the issue, visit Microsoft’s Ask the Core Team blog. The Windows team has some ground to cover before the DPI scaling complaints subside, but at least now, users can start to make out a path of development toward addressing issues, albeit a still somewhat blurry path. Sorry, the pun was right there. Article source
  15. Notepad! is a nicely balanced Notepad replacement, accessible to just about everyone but with plenty of bonus extra features when you need them. The interface is an immediate plus, its Office-like ribbon organising the program’s main features across three tabs. If your editing needs are simple, there’s not much to learn. Open a document, type as normal, use the standard editing keys, save the file and you’re done. You'll still notice immediate benefits over regular Notepad. Files open more quickly, especially when they're large, and the tabbed interface enables opening several documents at once. Other features begin to appear as you explore. Drag and drop editing means you can select a block of text and drag and drop it somewhere else. The Find and Replace tools support regular expressions and maintain a history of your searches for easy recall. The Print feature is a highlight. Instead of the usual "dump plain text to the default printer" system, you're able to set margins, gutter, indentations, header, footer and more, and check the results immediately via a Print Preview. The "Find in Files" tool works well, too. You can locate files by name, location, content, created/modified/accessed dates, size, all attributes (Reparse Point, Sparse File and more), and with your mix of include or exclude filters. The "Document Map" displays a sidebar with a thumbnail of your document. Click on an area you recognise -- a list of items towards the end of the document, say – and Notepad! displays it right away. Click "Split Editor" and a second pane opens with another view of the current document. This allows you to view distant areas of the document at the same time, maybe to compare them, or to drag and drop text from one pane to another. Programmers will benefit from syntax highlighting covering more than 35 languages. Extras range from a hash mode calculator supporting CRC32, MD5, RIPE-MD160, SHA1, SHA256 and SH512, to the more usual bookmark system, line sorting and customisable hotkeys. Notepad! still can't match the power of a full-strength programmers editor. There's no code folding, auto-complete, macro recording, session support or anything else particularly advanced. It's also missing one or two features you might expect. Right-click a tab and there are no management options, for instance -- no context menu at all. Despite this, Notepad! is a likeable tool, easy to use and with some helpful features. Take a look. Notepad! is available for Windows 7 and later. Article source

    Introducing Notepad3

    I’ve always loved little Windows enhancements, like improved Notepad replacements. Specially because the default Windows Notepad has not been updated much over the past 20 years. One of these Notepad “enhancements” is Notepad2. Notepad2 is a free open-source lightweight Notepad replacement released in 2004, with features like line numbering and syntax highlighting, it is respected by most advance text file users. With all its clever features, Notepad2 is lacking a few, like support for all common programming languages and bookmarks. Notepad2-mod filled in most of the gaps, but I wanted prettier toolbar icons and it also had some bugs that needed sorting out. Because I’m more about sorting out my annoyances compared to complaining about it. I decided to release my own Notepad2 version. Notepad3 seemed like the logical name for my release, it just sounds fresher. Introduction Notepad3 is a fast and light-weight Scintilla-based text editor with syntax highlighting. Notepad3 is an replacement for the default Windows text editor. There’s nothing wrong with Windows Notepad, it’s lightweight and fast; however programmers and other text file users will all agree that it has definite limitations. Notepad3 offers many extra features over Notepad and Notepad2. It has a small memory footprint, but is powerful enough to handle most programming jobs. Windows Notepad can easily be replaced by Notepad3 using an unobtrusive registry based method. Notepad3 is based on code from Florian Balmer’s Notepad2 and XhmikosR’s Notepad2-mod. Notepad2 Features Syntax highlighting support for ASP, assembly language, C, C++, C#, Common Gateway Interface (CGI), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), HTML, Java, JavaScript, NSIS, Pascal, Perl, PHP, Python, SQL, Visual Basic (VB), VBScript, XHTML, XML, BAT, DIFF, INF, INI, REG, and configuration files . Auto indentation Bracket matching Character encoding conversion between ASCII, UTF-8, and UTF-16 formats. Multiple undo/redo; rectangular block selection. Newline format conversion, between DOS (CR/LF), Unix (LF), and Macintosh (CR) formats. Regular expression-based find and replace. Changes compared to Notepad2 Code folding Support for bookmarks Option to mark all occurrences of a word Word auto-completion Syntax highlighting support for AutoHotkey, AutoIt3, AviSynth, Bash, CMake, CoffeeScript, Inno Setup, LaTeX, Lua, Markdown, NSIS, Ruby, Tcl, YAML and VHDL scripts Improved support for NFO ANSI art. Support for replacing Windows Notepad using a clean, unintrusive registry-based method. Other various minor changes and tweaks Download Notepad3 Go here to download Notepad3. Article source

    Changing Text Files Properties

    So i have 50 text files. I have to change the encoding for all of them to Unicode. Is there a software that can help me change the encoding for all of them instead of going through them one by one ?

    Useful Registry Hacks

    1- Prevent Windows Update from Forcibly Rebooting Your Computer Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box or run dialog and navigate down to the following key creating new keys if they don’t exist HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU Create a new 32-bit DWORD value named NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers and give it a value of 1 to prevent automatic reboot while users are logged on. Delete the value to put things back to the way they were. Or just download and extract the registry hack files and double-click on WUNoAutoReboot.reg to disable automatic reboots. The other script will remove the hack. 2- Add "Open with Notepad" to the Context Menu for All Files Open regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box and then browse down to the following key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell Right-click on “shell” and choose to create a new key calling it “Open with Notepad”. Create a new key below that one called “command”. Double-click on the (Default) value in the right-hand pane and enter in the following: notepad.exe %1 The change should take effect immediately just right-click on any file and you’ll see the next menu entry. Or just download, extract and double-click on the OpenWithNotepad.reg file to enter the information into the registry. There’s also an uninstall script included. 3- Disable All Notification Balloons in Windows 7 or Vista Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box, and then browse down to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced Right-click on the right-hand pane and create a new 32-bit DWORD with the following values: Name: EnableBalloonTips Value: 0 You’ll have to logoff and back on in order to see the change or to be more correct, you won’t see any popup balloons anymore. Or simply download, extract, and double-click on the DisableNotificationBalloons.reg file to enter the information into the registry. There’s also an included EnableNotificationBalloons file that will reverse the change. 4- Add Any Application to the Windows Desktop Right-Click Menu Open up regedit.exe through the Start Menu search or run box, and then browse down to the following key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell Right-click on the “shell” key, and then choose New \ Key from the menu. Give the new key the name that you want to show up on the desktop context menu. For this example we’ll be using Notepad. Create the command key that will actually hold the command used to launch the application. Right-click on the new Notepad key, and then choose New \ Key from the menu. Give this key the name “command” in lowercase. To complete this step you’ll need the full path to the application that you want to launch. You can use Shift + Right-Click to get the Copy as Path menu item to find this more quickly. Now click on “command” on the left side, and then double-click on the (Default) key in the right side to edit the string value. Paste in the full path to the executable that you got from the “Copy as Path” step above, or you can put in the full path yourself if you’d like. 5- Add Registry Editor to Control Panel After installation you’ll need to choose System and Maintenance in the control panel. Perhaps most useful it’s now available through the start menu search box. Just extract and double-click on the installation script. You can remove using the included removal script. 6- Remove "Shortcut" Text From New Shortcuts in Windows 7 or Vista Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box, and then browse down to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer On the right-hand side you’ll find a key that is just called “link”, with a default value of 1e 00 00 00. Open this key up and change the 1e to 00 instead, leaving you with 00 00 00 00. You’ll have to log off and then back on to make this change take effect. Please note that this won’t affect existing shortcuts, only shortcuts that you create from now on. To change the setting back, just change back to the 1e value, log off and back on. Or just use these ready-to-use registry keys 7- Hide Drives from Your Computer in Windows 7 or Vista Open up regedit.exe by using the start menu search box, and then browse down to the following key. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer If the Explorer key does not exist, you can right-click on Policies, select New Key and name it Explorer. The NoDrives key most likely does not exist by default, so you’ll need to create it with right-click \ new 32-bit DWORD and name it NoDrives. This value is a 32 bit number, and the bits are arranged in reverse order with a value of 1 hiding that drive. For example, if we wanted to hide drives A: and F: we would arrange it like this: A = 1 B = 0 C = 0 D = 0 E = 0 F = 1 G = 0 H = 0 I = 0 J = 0 K = 0 L = 0 M = 0 N = 0 O = 0 P = 0 Q = 0 R = 0 S = 0 T = 0 U = 0 V = 0 W = 0 X = 0 Y = 0 Z = 0 Converting 100001 to decimal we end up with a decimal value of 33 or a hex value of 0×21, so if you double-click on the key in the registry editor, choose Decimal and then enter 33 into the value field. In order to see these changes, you’ll need to restart explorer.exe, which you can do easily from Task Manager or the longer way by just logging off and back on. To disable this tweak, simply remove the NoDrives registry key entirely. Here’s a list of the values you’ll want to enter for a few different drive letters. Drive Letter - Decimal - Hex A 1 1 B 2 2 C 4 4 D 8 8 E 16 10 F 32 20 G 64 40 H 128 80 If you want to hide multiple drives, you’ll need to use the table of all the drive letters to figure out the correct binary code, and then convert that to decimal or hex. 8- Add Recycle Bin to “My Computer” in Windows 7 or Vista Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box, and then browse down to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace Right-click and create a new key. Name the key with the following text: {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} Or simply download the file, extract it, and then either double-click on the AddRecycleBinToMyComputer.reg to add Recycle Bin or RemoveRecycleBinToMyComputer.reg to remove it.
