    Could someone please remind me the tweak that allows you to increase the NUMBER of customizable windows within XP? It was a registry hack that allowed you to up the number of windows. Anyone know what I am talking about?

    Thanks.

    Hi madmatt, great you are back again. :)

    This registry file will increase the number of folder customizations Windows remembers from the default 400 to 4000. You can of course also use a different number.
    That's what you are looking for?

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell]
    "BagMRU Size"=dword:00000fa0

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam]
    "BagMRU Size"=dword:00000fa0

    Okay. A while back (and I mean a while) I saw dealer (perris) post a tweak that allowed you to increase the number of windows/folders that you could customize (size of windows, folder options, file information headers, etc.). It was a registry hack and all you had to do was change a value some where. That's the best I can explain it right now.

    Hi Matt, did you forget about this thread? Would like to know if the one above was what you were looking for. [;)]

    Btw while we are at this topic, the new version of TweakUI has this option, too. There is however a bug in it. It writes a wrong registry value (a space too much). So don't use this 'til there is a fix.

    yoyo,

    Yes, actually I did forget about this thread. I figured no one knew what I was talking about. And yes, that is the fix for upping the limit, dealer actually brought it to my attention. However, thank you. =]

    Hope all is well with you, good to see you around still.
