But having so much of help, there are some hidden truths regarding windows. I would like to share some of them with you that I know with you now.
First of all, I must tell you that most of the hidden tricks are associated with registry values. It is very dangerous to change registry values because microsoft is using all of its objects associated with a registry values. So deleting some key may harm your computer and may lead to reloading of the Operating system again afresh. So be very careful of what I am telling you and dont delete other keys by mistake.
Now, How to open Registry…..
To open Registry, first go to Start menu, then RUN. Type "regedit" without quotes there and press Enter. This will open a new window called Registry Editor with two divisions on the screen. The left hand part is having a hierarchy of folders. And the right hand side is its associated content. Well, it is very similar to the Windows Explorer. Now moving to the Tricks……..
(CLSID)
Well, basically windows is build with the microsoft’s COM (Component Object Model) based architecture. They have built lots of dlls to provide full graphical windows. Everything in windows is built with classes. The classes of windows are assigned to an unique ID with it called Class ID or CLSID. Now any special folders or any icon of windows OS is associated to its respective CLSIDs, and they are just an object of those classes. An ICON is just a special file when associated with the approprite clsid will behave specially. For instance, if a file or folder is assigned to the CLSID of Recycle Bin will definately behave like it. Even the picture of the ICON will also change if we change the CLSID of it.
