Windows Vista : Tips and Tricks

Disable UAC:
User Access Control is that annoying thing that keeps on popping up tirelessly to ask you if it is okay to install a particular program when you try to install one. <one of the biggest irritants in Vista>

Open COntrol Panel>Type in user account and enter> opt for Turn User Access Control (UAC) ON or OFF > restart the system
An alt from command line,
c:\windows\System32\cmd.exe /k%winder%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CUrrentVersion\Policies\System\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Gadgets without the sidebar:
The sidebar is a bit of a distraction and occupies too much desktop space. but you probably do like some of the gadgets without the need of the sidebar: just drag and drop one to the Desktop, right click anywhere on the clear part of the sidebar and choose Close Sidebar. The gadgets continue to run.

Hide the Floppy Drive in Windows Vista
What's the use of Floppies these days?... wanna delete the display for the floppy drive
in the regedit <Registry Editor> ::: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsof\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
If this key does nt exists, create it. Then modify or create a 32-bit DWORD named NoDrives. Assign it a value of 1 to hide drive.
