I HAVE to tweak windows, because the basic setup just doesn’t do it for me. Here are some tweaks that I use:

Slow Start Menu?

Make the Start Menu show faster by changing the registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop/ShowMenuDelay from the default 400 to 0.

Cluttered Start Menu?

Use the classic start menu! And remove unnecessary entries such as Recent Documents and the Help option with these two tweaks:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer] “NoRecentDocsMenu”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced] “NoStartMenuHelp”=dword:00000001
