    Disable menu animations

    To disable menu animations (sliding in/out) and speed up performance of the UI a bit:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Menu\AniType = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    To change it back to the default:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Menu\AniType = 6 (DWORD decimal)

    Disable window animations

    To disable window animations (minimizing/maximizing) and speed up performance of the UI a bit:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Animate = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    And to switch them back on:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\GWE\Animate = 1 (DWORD decimal)

    Increase font cache

    To increase the font cache, speeding up font rendering at the cost of a bit of memory:

    Change the 'user agent' identification of Pocket Internet Explorer

    To change the 'user agent' identification of Pocket Internet Explorer, several fields need to be adjusted. The example shows how to identify as Internet Explorer 6 - desktop version
    The standard compliance 'user-agent' string:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\User Agent\(Default) = "Mozilla/4.0" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)
    Defaults to "Mozilla/2.0" The application/version string:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\User Agent\Version = "MSIE 6.0" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)


    Defaults to "MSIE 4.01" The host operating system string:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\User Agent\Platform = "Windows NT 5.0" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    Defaults to "Windows CE" Please note that if you change the Platform string, PDA-friendly sites may stop sending you PDA-friendly content automatically. Leave this string set to "Windows CE" unless a site absolutely refuses to work, or you want the site to feed you its normal content.



    Change the location of 'Temporary Internet Files'

    When browsing the web, pages and images are saved in the 'Temporary Internet Files' location. You can change this location to, for example, your Storage Card:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Cache = "\Storage Card\cacheie" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)
    To return to the original location:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Cache = "\Windows\Profiles\guest\Temporary Internet Files" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)


    Change the display of the clock in the taskbar

    The clock in the taskbar can be changed to show not only the time, but also the date, or just the date, or nothing at all.
    To show nothing:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\TBOpt = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    To show just the clock:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\TBOpt = 1 (DWORD decimal)


    To show just the date:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\TBOpt = 2 (DWORD decimal)

    To show both the date and the clock:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\TBOpt = 1 (DWORD decimal)

    Note 1: If you switch to the Analog clock display, the date will remain visible -through- the Analog clock
    Note 2: Setting the clock to show 'nothing' will still keep the reserved space, showing the taskbar background, and obscure any icons that will shift to the right.
    Note 3: Your date may get obscured by the space reserved for the OK/Close button in the top-right. You can fix this my adding spaces at the end of your 'Short Date Format'. See also the tweak on 'Change the Short Date Format'


    Change the Short Date Format

    Applications may call upon the system to provide a 'short date format'. One such application is the Date/Time display in the taskbar, if set to show the date. To change the Short Date Format to show "Mon/2" (example):

    HKLM\nls\overrides\SSDte = "ddd/d " (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    Note 1: For more information on date/time formatting strings, see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...ateformats.asp
    Note 2: All applications using the short date format will be affected by this change. Choose wisely


    Disable the security warning when installing non-certified application

    To disable the security warning when installing a non-certfied application, set:
    HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\0000101a = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To restore the warnings:
    HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\0000101a = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that this makes it easier for any malware to install itself


    Default SMS Delivery Notifications to on

    To always have SMS Delivery Notifications enabled:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable them (can still enable per-SMS in SMS settings):
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that SMS Delivery Notifications are a network provider option, and the recipient may refuse them to be sent out


    Change the application launched by Today screen Soft Keys

    To change the application launched by the Today screen Left soft key:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\112\Open = "\Windows\Calendar.exe" (REG_SZ string, including quotes)

    To change the title of the Left soft key:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\112\(Default) = Calendar (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    To change the application launched by the Today screen Right soft key:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\113\Open = "\Windows\Calendar.exe" (REG_SZ string, including quotes)

    To change the title of the Right soft key:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\113\(Default) = "Calendar" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    Note that 113 normally doesn't exist by default, and probably needs to be created Also note that there is at least 1 application that allows you to set these through a GUI, developed by FdcSoft called SoftKeyAppletEx


    Disable 3gp (video) size limit

    To disable the 3gp (video recording format) size limit:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\HTC\camera\AppDefSettings\P3\EnableLimit = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    To re-enable:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\HTC\camera\AppDefSettings\P3\EnableLimit = 1 (DWORD decimal)


    Add GPS settings icon

    If you have a GPS device, you can add a GPS settings icon to your Start > Settings menu using:
    HKLM\ControlPanel\GPS Settings\Group = 2 (DWORD decimal)
    HKLM\ControlPanel\GPS Settings\redirect <-- delete, or rename, this value

    Note that '2' stands for the Connections tab, '1' is System and '0' would be Personal


    Add Lunar Calendar mode to Calendar

    You can add a Lunar Calendar mode to the Calendar view, showing a 'Month' view with the Lunar months/days.
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowLunarCalendar = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    And to disable again:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowLunarCalendar = 0 (DWORD decimal)


    Change location of ringtones

    You can change the location where WM5 will look for ringtones by adjusting the following key (example given is for ringtones placed on the Storage Card root folder)
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Sound\Categories\Ring\Directory = "\Storage Card\" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)
    The default location may be "\Windows\" or "\Windows\Rings\" depending on your Device provider


    Change slide-out keyboard layout

    If you have a Device from one country, but would like to use the keyboard layout of another, you can change the keyboard's language setting to do so...

    For US layout (QWERTY):
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Keybd\Locale = 1033 (DWORD decimal)
    For German layout (QWERTZ):
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Keybd\Locale = 1031 (DWORD decimal)
    For French layout (AZERTY):
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Keybd\Locale = 1036 (DWORD decimal)

    _For other codes, see: http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/r.../xp-lcid.mspx_


    Show Edge network indicator instead of GPRS

    If your network provider supports the Edge network (and your device does as well), you can use the following to show a little 'E' icon instead of 'G' icon when connected to an Edge network:
    HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\RIL\EnableDifferGprsEdgeIcon = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable again:
    HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\RIL\EnableDifferGprsEdgeIcon = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that your device -and- your network operator need to support Edge, otherwise you won't see it. Also note that if you connect to GPRS, you will still see the 'G' icon.


    Make reminders show only once

    By default, reminders will keep bugging you for 2 minutes. You can change this to zero minutes by adjusting this value:
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Notifications\Reminders\AutoSnooze\AutoSnoozeMins = 0 (DWORD decimanl)

    Note that you can set this to any value you like. Alternative to setting this value to zero is to delete the '?AutoSnooze' key altogether


    Remove operator skin from Phone app

    If your device's Phone app is skinned, you can remove by setting:
    HKLM\Security\Phone\Skin\Enabled = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    Similarly, you can restore it with:
    HKLM\Security\Phone\Skin\Enabled = 1 (DWORD decimal)


    En/Disable receiving of files over BlueTooth/IrDA

    If you want to prevent receiving files over BlueTooth or IrDA, you can set the following value:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Obex\IsEnabled = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    And to (re-)enable:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Obex\IsEnabled = 1 (DWORD decimal)


    GPRS always on

    If you want your GPRS (or EDGE) connection to always be on, set the following:
    HKLM\Comm\ConnMgr\Providers\{7C4B7A38-5FF7-4bc1-80F6-5DA7870BB1AA}\|gprs connection name|\AlwaysOn = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    And to turn it off:
    HKLM\Comm\ConnMgr\Providers\{7C4B7A38-5FF7-4bc1-80F6-5DA7870BB1AA}\|gprs connection name|\AlwaysOn = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that |gprs connection name| will depend on the name you've given your GPRS connection


    Hide/Show Screen orientation icon

    If you wish to hide the Screen orientation icon, shown in the task bar on some devices, you can set:
    HKLM\System\GDI\Rotation\HideOrientationUI = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    And to show it again:
    HKLM\System\GDI\Rotation\HideOrientationUI = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    If this doesn't work, you can try:
    HKLM\Services\screenrotate = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    And to show it again:
    HKLM\Services\screenrotate = 1 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that this icon and its feature may not be available on your device at all.


    Hide/Show battery indicator in Task bar

    If you wish to hide the battery indicator in the task bar on some devices, you can set:
    HKLM\Services\Power\ShowIcon = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    And to show:
    HKLM\Services\Power\ShowIcon = 1 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that this icon and its feature may not be available on your device at all. For example, the HTC Wizard regularly ships with a battery indicator in the Tray instead, governed by "Windows\Startup\Init_Tray.exe".


    Show slide-out keyboard caps/dot icon next to SIP

    If your device contains a file called "capnotify.exe", try running it (most devices that have it will already have it in the Windows\StartUp\ folder), and setting the following value to get a visual presentation of whether you are in caps or dot (alternate key function) mode:
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Keybd\EnableIndicator = 1
    Please note that if your device has no external keyboard with caps/dot mode, you won't gain anything from this tweak
    Please also note that the application "?CapNotify.exe" must be running (normally found in \Windows\?StartUp\ already) for this to work


    Change ringtone/vibrate/LED flash characteristics

    If you would like more control over how your device rings/vibrates/flashes its LEDs on events, you can can change the Script values of these events. For example, for an incoming call performing 'activate device, play ringtone, wait 3 seconds, repeat':

    HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\RingTone0\Script = "apw3r" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    For performing 'active device, set volume to 33%, play ringtone, set volume to 67%, play ringtone, set volume to 100%, play ringtone (no repeat)':

    HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\RingTone0\Script = "ac33pc67pc100p" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)


    The following are the full codes available to you. Please note that all the codes are executed simultaneously except after a ringtone play / wait code. E.g. 'v1p' will vibrate and play at the same time, while vibrating for 1 second. But 'pv1' will play the ringtone through all the way first, then start vibrating for 1 second.

    a = activate device
    cN = set volume to N in percentage max volume
    fN = flash notification LED for N seconds
    p = play ringtone. Note that this will play the ringtone all the way through before continuing with the next code.
    r = repeat. Note that this should be the last code in your Script string, if used at all.
    vN = vibrate for N seconds
    wN = wait for N seconds. Note that the device will wait this long before continuing with the next code.


    Change the keyboard backlight duration

    To change the duration of the keyboard backlight, you can set (example is 30 seconds):
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Backlight\QKeyLedTimeout = 30 (DWORD decimal)

    Please note that this may not work on some devices. One such notable exception is the HTC Wizard.


    Disable the SMS Sent notification

    If you're tired of the "Message Sent" notification after sending an SMS/text message, you can disable them:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSNoSentMsg = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    And to re-enable:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSNoSentMsg = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Please note that the 'Settings' key may not exist in your device, and thus may have to be created first.


    Change the SMS Sent notification text

    If you just want the "Message Sent" notification to read something different, adjust the following:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Svc\SMS\MessageSent = "Message Sent" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    Always require SMS Delivery notification

    If you always want an SMS Delivery notification (see note below!), and are tired of ticking the 'Request message delivery notification' checkbox, set:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable again:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Note 1: Delivery notifications will depend on your and the recipient's operator network capabilities! Note 2: You can still override this with the regular checkbox.


    Set default SIP

    The default SIP on practically every device is the Keyboard. You may prefer entry with a different SIP. If so, you can set this to be the default SIP through:
    HKCU\ControlPanel\SIP\DefaultIM = |SIP ClassID|

    The |SIP ClassID| will depend on the SIP's ClassID, which may vary per-device. You can find the correct ClassID by searching for "IsSIPInputMethod" in HKCR, then going to the top key and checking the name of the SIP that's in the (Default) value.
    Please note that this doesn't work with all SIPs. Transcriber/Calligrapher are two examples of this.
    You can, however, set Transcriber as the default SIP by starting Transcriber.exe on startup. (This should be moved to, or added to, non-registry Tweaks page)
    The following are some of the ClassIDs typically found:


    Typical pre-installed:
    {42429667-ae04-11d0-a4f8-00aa00a749b9} = Keyboard

    Put custom text on bottom-right of Today screen

    You can set some piece of text on the bottom-right of the Today Screen by setting the following key:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\DeviceBeta\Today = "Hello World" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    Please note that this text won't take up Today item text. It will be obscured by Today items.


    Navigate PIE up/down with the four-way pad

    By default, PIE uses the four-way pad's up/down buttons to jump between hyperlinks and form fields. You can set it up to page up/down instead by setting:
    \HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Navigation\4-Way Nav = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    And to re-enable hyperlink/form field navigation:
    \HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Navigation\4-Way Nav = 1 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that you may still jump between links using Tab and Shift-Tab if your Device has a built-in hardware keyboard.


    Navigate PIE up/down with any key

    You can change the keys used by IE for page up/page down browsing by creating keys linked to these controls:
    Page Up:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\KeyMaps\|key code| = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    Page Down
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\KeyMaps\|key code| = 2 (DWORD decimal)

    Where |key code| is the code of the key pressed. For example, if your Device has a phone pad on the front, you may prefer to use the '2' key (keycode 50) for page up, and the '8' key (keycode 56) for page down, leaving the four-way pad to browse links:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\KeyMaps\50 = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\KeyMaps\56 = 2 (DWORD decimal)


    Disable charging over USB

    If your device can charge over USB, you can probably disable this feature by setting:
    HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\usbfndrv\EnableUsbCharging = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    And to re-enable:
    HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\usbfndrv\EnableUsbCharging = 1 (DWORD decimal)


    Show Calendar event text in Week View

    If you wish to see a Calendar event's text in the Week View, set the following:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowTextInWeekView = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable it again:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowTextInWeekView = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Please note that your event must have long enough a duration to show the event text, and the week view (with its narrow columns) truncates long words easily
    Also note that the key "Calendar" may not exist - just create it if it doesn't


    Change Calendar 'working days'

    If you wish to change the 'working days' in the calendar, adjust the following:
    For a Mon-Fri workweek (default):
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ActiveTimes\ActiveTimes = 2210003E (DWORD hexadecimal)
    For a Mon-Sat workweek:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ActiveTimes\ActiveTimes = 2210007E (DWORD hexadecimal)
    For a Tue-Thu workweek:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ActiveTimes\ActiveTimes = 22100016 (DWORD hexadecimal)

    Here's how this works. When editing the value, switch to "Binary" mode. For the default Mon-Fri, you should see:

    100010000100000000000000111110

    The last 7 numbers are what we're interested in. They stand for the days of the week, in reverse order: Saturday, Friday, Thursday, Wednesday, Tuesday, Monday, Sunday. When the number is "1", it is a working day. If it is "0", it's not a working day. So to look at the above examples again:

    Days : SFTWTMS
    Mon-Fri: 0111110
    Mon-Sat: 1111110
    Tue-Thu: 0011100
    Using the above, you should be able to set the working days to whatever you'd like.
    Note that this value also adjusts the working HOURS. The examples here all use the default 8am-5pm workday. See the "Change Calendar 'working hours'" tweak to modify this.
    Note that the ActiveDays key and value may not exist. Simply create them first.


    Change Calendar 'working hours'

    If you wish to change the 'working hours' in the calendar, adjust the following:
    For 8am-5pm (default):
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ActiveTimes\ActiveTimes = 2210003E (DWORD hexadecimal)
    For 9am-5pm:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ActiveTimes\ActiveTimes = 2212003E (DWORD hexadecimal)
    For 2pm-10pm:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ActiveTimes\ActiveTimes = 2C1C003E (DWORD hexadecimal)

    Here's how this works.
    The first 2 characters define the ending hour as a count of half hours since midnight, in hexadecimal. So for midnight, it would be 0 half hours in hexadecimal = 0. 5pm is 17 hours, or 34 half hours. 34 in hexadecimal is 22. 10pm is 22 hours, or 44 half hours. 44 in hexadecimal is 2C. You can use a calculator capable of hexadecimal conversions to get the hexadecimal number.
    Similarly, the next 2 characters define the starting hour as a count of half hours since midnight, in hexadecimal. So for 8am.. 16 half hours, 16 in hexadecimal is 10. 9am = 18 half hours = 12. 14h = 28hh = 1C.
    Using the above, you should be able to se the working hours to whatever you'd line.
    Note that this value also adjusts the working DAYS. The examples here all use the default Mon-Fri workweek. See the "Change Calendar 'working days'" tweak to modify this.
    Note that the ActiveDays key and value may not exist. Simply create them first.
    Note that you cannot set the End time earlier than the Start time, for obvious reasons
    Note that you cannot set a Midnight end time. The best you can do is 11.30pm (2F)


    Show 'busy status' in Calendar Agenda View

    To show the "Free"/"Tentative"/"Out of office" states in the Agenda View, set:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowBusyInDescription = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To hide it again:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowBusyInDescription = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that this only appears to affect the 'Agenda' view. No other views, and not the Today Screen item.


    Make WM5 ask where to install a program (1)

    If you wish to be able to specify whether to install a program on WM5's Main storage, or your Storage Card, regardless of installer setting set:
    HKLM\Software\apps\Microsoft Application Installer\fAskDest = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable again:
    HKLM\Software\apps\Microsoft Application Installer\fAskDest = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Please note that many applications do not support being installed on the Storage Card and may behave unpredictably, including crashing


    Make WM5 ask where to install a program (2)

    An alternative method of making WM5 ask where to install a program is by adding the "/askdest" option to the Windows CE loader:
    HKCR\cabfile\Shell\open\command = 'wceload.exe "%1" /askdest' (REG_SZ string, no quotes)


    Make WM5 keep CAB files around after installing (1)

    If you wish to keep the original .CAB file around after installing the application, set:
    HKLM\Software\apps\Microsoft Application Installer\nDynamicDelete = 0 (DWORD decimal)
    Or to restore to the default:
    HKLM\Software\apps\Microsoft Application Installer\nDynamicDelete = 2 (DWORD decimal)


    Make WM5 keep CAB files around after installing (2)

    An alternative method of making WM5 keep the original .CAB file around after installing the application is by adding the "/nodelete" option to the Windows CE loader:
    HKCR\cabfile\Shell\open\command = 'wceload.exe "%1" /nodelete' (REG_SZ string, no quotes)


    Make WM5 prompt before overwriting an existing installation

    If you wish to make WM5 prompt you before overwriting an existing installation, set:
    HKLM\Software\apps\Microsoft Application Installer\fAskOptions = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable again:
    HKLM\Software\apps\Microsoft Application Installer\fAskOptions = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Great question. This is an annoyance and an unnecessary battery drain since it turns on the screen. Anyone have a fix for this?

    Be very careful when using the "Move IE History/Cache/Temp files to SD Card" tweak. I like to listen to mp3's off of my SD card while browsing the web on the train ride home from work. However, when I executed the above tweak my Treo started routinely bogging down/locking up when I would simultaneously try to listen to mp3s and browse the web. Doing one or the other independently never caused a problem. I have disabled the tweak and have had no problems since.

    Also, I have stored my emails/Inbox items on my SD card as well, so if Activesync kicked on while I was browsing the web & listening to mp3s I had the mother of all lock ups. Apparently the 700w has a few problems reading/writing to an SD card simultaneously. Or maybe it's my ADAT card. I am running XCPUScalar up to 520 mhz, btw.

    AceMarlak - you need to use a registry editor. You might want to not do any tweaks until you've used WM devices for a while and learned more about the OS and the registry.

    You'll need a registry editor. I use Resco's Explorer. There are some others out there.

    I own a Treo 700w. I tried the SSDte hack to change the short date format on the task bar. It didn't seem to work correctly. I tried the d-mmm format to display 17-Apr, but got 17-mmm displayed. If I do NOT add the SSDte value, the default format is mm/dd/yy and displays correctly, except the last digit is chopped off. Anyone else having trouble with this? Corrections?

    You need to find the registry hack to make the font BOLD in the Today bar and then
    it will show the last digit.

    some of these are cool and all but the ones that increase cache would not be a good thing to do on the 700w w/ all the issues it has w/ memory. you're giving up memory which we dont have a lot of for the sake of speed. Just something to think about. I did disable the text message sent notification and that's a nice thing to do away with.

    I didn't know there was one. Where?

    Change location of ringtones

    You can change the location where WM5 will look for ringtones by adjusting the following key (example given is for ringtones placed on the Storage Card root folder)
    HKCU\ControlPanel\Sound\Categories\Ring\Directory = "\Storage Card\" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)
    The default location may be "\Windows\" or "\Windows\Rings\" depending on your Device provider




    Can somebody please explain above. I tried this and it didn't work? Will it show all the mp3's I have on my card in sounds settings?

    OK download "Spb Pocket Pc Tips and Tricks".......
    You can find it at Pocketgear.com.
    Go to the tweaks section and there you go, the option to make it
    Bold.

    Is there such a thing as a global 'font size' registry tweak? I could stand to have a smaller font size throughout the phone to increase screen real estate.

    Thanks.
