Edit Hidden System Settings using Group Policy Editor

To start the program up follow the directions below.

1. Open the start menu and click Run
2. Type gpedit.msc
3. The Group Policy MMC appears
4. Click through the different nodes of the tree to see all the hidden features of Windows XP that you can edit without touching the registry.

Examples: Changing IE displays, Clearing the pagefile at shutdown, boot-time defrag settings, and many many more

Another tip is to add this to your Administrative Tools by adding the shortcut to gpedit.msc

    Warning. Be very careful with this tool. It controls many settings that have major system implications that are not fully explained. You could cause serious problems that are very difficult to solve. This tool is not available with XP Home Edition. Larry Miller, Microsoft MCSA
