Windows Cheats


Hiding information:
Submitted by: Dimon

Want to hide your secret document?Use the following steps to make a protected 
folder that cannot be accessed from the Windows Explorer: Open MS-DOS prompt, 
type mkdir followed by a space, then hold ALT key and type 251. Then release 
ALT. Now you can save there anything you want to hide. Windows Explorer cannot 
display the content of this folder. You can use these numbers instead of 251: 
158, 159, 169, 176 to 224, 226 to 229, 231 to 240, 242 to 245, 247, 249, 252, 
254 and 255.
For me, only 176, 249, 251 and 254 worked. To access this folder from windows, 
just rename it into a normal name. To do so, open MS-DOS, enter the directory, 
where your folder is placed and type ren followed by a space, then hold alt and 
type the number, that you used when you created your folder. Press space again 
and then type the new name of your folder. Press enter.

Privacy Help
by: Onellan Govender =

If you don't want people to be able to trace your computer
you may do the following

Run Registry Editor 'regedit'.  Then navigate your way to 


Find a key called RegDone

Change the value from "" to "1"

Then restart your computer. Now you don't have to worry about
anyone tracking your computer.

In the same directory you may find a lot of other private
information such as the key-code you enter when you install Windows

Sorcut without arrow:
Submitted by: S.ORANGZEB

I think you also don't like the shortcut arrows like me, 
But here is the solution to make them invisible. First 
creat a blank icon using paint.( How : Open paint brush 
and then click image attributes type 32 in both boxes and 
click o.k then save the file as blank.ico ) Then open 
registry editor by typing regedit in run box and go to 
\explorer\shell icons right click anywhere in the right pane 
and from the new menu select string value type "29" (without 
quotes) as the name of the value and then double click on it 
and now fill it with the path of that icon for exp "c:\my 
dcouments\balnk.ico" with quotes. Now you've done but you'll 
see nothing happens actually you need to refresh icons (How : 
right click on desktop select properties and then go to 
appearance tab and from the drop down item list select icon 
and then reduce there size by 32 to 30 and then back to 32 now 
you've finished. No shortcut arrow haan!
(Note : for windows 98, Me, 2000 and may be Nt, 95 but not for 
windows xp)

system's dos. At the Dos change to the directory where is the

Then Search for Text (start) it will be written like this 
( S t a r t ) Then press the insert key on your keyboard and 
take the cursor to word (S) And type your desired word and 
press the right arrow key and then type next word and repeat 
this procedure till the last word..... Note : You can't write 
more than 5 letters but if you want to write less than 5 letters 
then when you have finished your work take the cursors on the 
last word(s) which you want to remove and then press space bar. 
If you can't search for the word (start) here is the description 
of lines and columns of some windows !

Windows 2000 (Line 3236 Col 56)
Windows Xp   (Line 3814 Col 25)

Just for fun :

Try this naughty trick on your friends PC. Close all 
the open applications. While you are on the Desktop, 
press Print Sceen key. Open Paint and then paste the 
captured image. Save it as BMP, right - click on the 
desktop and change the wallpaper to the newly saved image.

Go to the "Web" tab of the Display propeties dialog and 
turn on Active Desktop. Make sure that the "Hide icons 
when desktop is viewed as Web-page" is turned on. From 
now on, your friend wont be clicking an application icon 
on the desktop, just a picture of it. See their face when 
thet happened! :-) 

Just for fun 2 :

Open MS DOS Promt and then go to the C:\Windows\Desktop 
directory. Normally you only need to type CD DESKTOP and 
press enter. Type (for exemple): MD 2002 VIRUS  .Use the 
space bar between MD and 2002, but between 2002 and VIRUS, 
hold down ALT key and enter the number  255 on your numeric 
keypad. This will create the space character that cannot be 
removed from Windows shell (Explorer). Thats it. Now wait 
until you see your friends face when they cannot remove that 
"Virus" folder from desktop. 

Just in case your friend panic and ask you for help to 
remove that "Virus", here are the steps: repeate the 
above steps but use the RMDIR (Remove Directory) command 
instead of MD [ Mke Directory ]   :-]
