ACCESSING THE REGISTRY
To apply the hacks, first of all you need to access the Windows 10 Registry. To do this, simply click the Start Menu, type “regedit” and then click OK. The Windows Registry will open and we are ready to use the Windows 10 Registry Hacks.
1. Display Seconds in Taskbar Clock
If you want the clock on the taskbar to display the time down to the second, you can follow these steps:
– Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
– Create DWORD ShowSecondsInSystemClock. Make sure the value is set to 1.
– Restart your computer and the taskbar will display seconds.
2. Disable Aero Shake
Aero Shake is a feature that allows you to focus and keep one window opens and minimize the other opened windows. This is a very nice feature but if you think you are not going to need it, you can disable it by following these steps below.
– In the regedit section, navigate to this part:
– Put the cursor on an empty space on the right-side pane. After that, right click, select New -> DWORD (32-bit).
– On the value name, type “DisallowShaking” and set the value data to 1.
– Restart your computer and the Aero Shake feature will be deactivated.
3. Activating Last Active Click
Let’s say that you are currently opening plenty of browser windows. You open another app and then you want to go back to the browser windows you were reading a minute before.
Unfortunately, since there are dozens of browser windows open, you have to check them one by one to find out which one is the browser you were working on before. By activating Last Active Click, you can go right back to the last Windows you open. This is how you activate this feature:
– Navigate to:
– Create new Dword and call it LastActiveClick.
– Set the value data to 1.
– Restart the computer and enjoy this new great feature.
While these Windows 10 Registry Hacks are very helpful, you have to be very careful. Make sure to follow all the steps carefully so you don’t end up corrupting your Window. Furthermore, it is best to back up your registry first in case something goes wrong.
