Enable or disable boot defrag Filed under: operating systems windows xp Pro, windows xp Home A great new feature in m*cro$oft Windows XP is the ability to do a boot defragment. This places all boot files next to each other on the disk to allow for faster booting. By default this option in enables but on some builds it is not so below is how to turn it on. Start Regedit. Navigate to Code: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/microsoft/Dfrg/BootOptimizeFunction Select Enable from the list on the right.Right on it and select Modify.Change the value to Y to enable and N to disable. Reboot your computer. Launch apps with desired priority setting Filed under: operating systems windows xp Pro, windows xp Home This tweak will launch most executables with the priority setting you want it to have. Let’s say you have a game installed called HIGH NEEDS and the executable is called HN.exe Here’s what to do: -Create a new textfile in the game-app wathever-directory (let’s say C:HN), but instead of giving it the .txt extension you name it HN.bat -Right-click this file and choose ‘Edit’, you’ll see it’ll open notepad. Put this line in:cmd /c start /High NH.exe -Save (make sure you save it as .bat, not as .txt) and close. Now create a shortcut to this file and place it on your desktop. Every time you doubleclick this shortcut HIGH NEEDS will open with priority set to ‘high’. (ofcourse you can also create a batchfile on your desktop, containing the full path of the app you want to start but the nice thing of creating a shortcut is you can give it an icon). These are all the settings: Realtime, High, AboveNormal, Normal, BelowNormal, Low. *Realtime is not recommended unless you have a dual-CPU system!
