Here's a neat little trick.

Recommended Posts

 I have changed the text in my start button several times. I get tired of seeing the same old boring "start" day in and day out. I have included below how to change it. Its a neat little trick, enjoy.

And I guess I should add this as an afterthought, because it happened to me a couple of months ago.

  If, by chance you edited something wrong in the registry and your computer logs on, but with no toolbar, desktop icons, exe. Just hold down at the same time  the ctrl  alt  and delete keys. When Windows task Manager comes up, left click on file-->new task(Run) and type in regedit.exe. This should bring you up to the last entry that you were editing. If not then file-->newtask(Run)-->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion Winlogon. Double click on Shell and type in explorer.exe in the Edit String/value data bar. Hit ok, then close registry editor. Then with the Windows task manager click shut down, then restart. Your computer will restart with the default values in place. (Start) Instead of the values you had edited.

Any questions just ask.

scdreamin3...just a suggestion...when posting photos here...it would be better if u just posted them as jpg's using additional options in the post options...because we can't see a larger view of ur photos...clicking the photo takes u to where ur image is hosted but there is no option to view larger

10-4 mama T.  No problemo. I thought that if I kept attaching photos it would use up testmy.net's server storage. I figured I would let a photo hosting sites servers(say that ten times fast) handle the storage. I see what you mean about being able to see a larger picture, some of the pic's I've posted are hard to see, especially for old dude's like me that REALLY needs glasses but refuse to wear them because I don't want to realize that I AM getting to be an old dude.  :grin2:  Thanks for the tip mama T. By the way, how was the Steve Miller concert? I bet you had a BLAST.

  Thanks again,

  Chris
