Must XP handler Tools- I


IE Title bar text

Internet Explorer installations distributed by companies other than Microsoft might have their names in the title bar. If you want to change this, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ Main, and edit or create a string value entry called ‘Window Title’. Double-click the entry and enter any string you want. Leave it blank if you want to remove the default string. You’ll need to restart Internet Explorer for the change to take effect.

Logon message

To create a personalised logon message in XP, go to HKEY_ LOCAL_ MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon. In the right pane, double-click the string entry ‘Legal-NoticeCaption’, enter the string ‘My Windows XP Machine’ and click OK. Next, doubleclick the ‘LegalNotice Text’ string entry, and enter the message to be displayed.

Change the welcome screen

Windows XP displays three different screens during boot-up. The second screen is the one that says “Welcome”. To change this, navigate to HKEY USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop. Under this key, you will find an entry named ‘Wallpaper’; double-click it and enter the path of the image file you want displayed. The file can be a BMP or JPEG image. If you want to tile the image, set the value of the ‘TileWallPaper’ entry to 1. If you want to stretch the wallpaper, set the value of the ‘WallPaper- Style’ entry to 2.
