2)Cool Keyboard Tricks (Windows) : Make a Disco.

4.Double click on the Saved file to see the LED lights on your keyboard go crazy and make your own cool disco.
3)Remove the Recycle Bin.
If you prefer to work with a completely clear desktop, you can hide the Recycle Bin with a little Registry hack. You can still use the [Shift] + [Delete] shortcut to access the Bin when you need it.
Choose ‘Start | Run’ and type Regedit in the ‘Open’ bar. Click ‘OK’. Now browse to the following location:
‘HKEY_ LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\HideDesktop Icons\NewStartPanel\’
Create a new DWORD value and give it the following name:
Double-click this and change its value to ‘1’. Quit Registry Editor, then right-click an empty space somewhere on your desktop and choose ‘Refresh’. The Recycle Bin icon will magically disappear from the desktop. You can get it back again at any time by changing the value back to ‘0’.
4)Remove text from icons.
You can improve the general look of your PC’s desktop by removing the names of shortcuts, leaving the icons to speak for themselves. If you try renaming a desktop shortcut to a single space, Windows XP won’t let you.
However, you can force it to accept a space as the name by holding down [Alt] and typing 255 on the number pad. If you want multiple shortcuts to have blank names, you’ll need to give each one a different number of spaces to avoid them having identical names.
5)Display shortcut keys
When you open a menu or My Computer window in XP, you can see what shortcut keys are available by pressing [Alt] once – underlined letters will appear, and pressing that letter will trigger the appropriate shortcut, whether it’s ticking a box or selecting a button.
You can make these underlined letters appear automatically from the ‘Appearance’ tab under the ‘Desktop’ control panel. Click the ‘Effects’ button and remove the tick next to the box marked ‘Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt key’. Click ‘OK’ twice.
6)Shut Down from Your Desktop
If you’re trying to eliminate every extraneous mouse click, you can shut down your computer with an icon on the desktop. Right-click on your desktop, click “New,” and then click “Shortcut.” In the “Type the location of the item” field, type “shutdown -s -t 00” to give you a way to shut down the computer immediately. (Change the -s to -r to create a reboot shortcut instead.)
7)Type With an Onscreen Keyboard
Whether you have trouble with your hands or you just prefer using the mouse, typing with Windows’ onscreen keyboard can be a great convenience. Navigate to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility, and click “On-Screen Keyboard.” Click OK to clear the dialogue box and then start “typing”—you can even change the settings to “press” keys just by hovering your mouse over the letter you want (enable this feature by selecting “Typing Mode” from the Settings menu).
8) How to hide drives

1.Go to start->run.Type regedit.Now go to:a
2.In the right pane create a new DWORD item and name it NoDrives(it is case sensitive).

4.Restart the computer.
5.Now when you click on My Computer, no drives will be shown(all gone…).
