    Just did a reformat. Went to add many of my favorite tweaks and ran into a minor problem. Went to add the tweak that changes how long it takes to kill an app at shut down. Went to edit the registry and the "WaitToKillApp" key doesn't seem to be present. I'm sure I'm looking in the right place. Also, running SP2.

    If it's not present just add it.

    What Steevo said:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
    waittokillapp reg_sz 20000

    The 20000 milliseconds is default (20 sec).

    reg_sz means use string value for the new item.

    Hmmm, wonder why it's missing?

    Thanks.... Just added it. Don't see why it wouldn't be there.
