registry tweaks

every now and then I need some Windows tweaks.
i''ll put here all the things i need.

here's the first ones:

make OutlookExpress independent from Messenger (restart: no)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Outlook Express]
"Hide Messenger"=dword:00000002


Add 'Explore from here' to Windows folders(restart: no)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Command]
@="CommandPrompt"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Command\command]
@="cmd.exe /k cd \"%1\""


matching file names each time you press TAB in cmd. works in XP but doesnt by default on Win2000
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command processor]
"CompletionChar"=dword:00000009

if you encounter the message "number of connection exceeded" you can always try to connect to the console.

open a commandline and write:
mstsc -v:servername /F -console

for more info, type mstsc /?
