Re: Open folder in new process in windows 7

To open folder in new process in the window 7. This fundamentally saves the system's resources, but even one folder crash can bring down the entire shell. You might encounter system crashes whenever you do something in Explorer. You can avoid this in a easy way. Open the Computer, hold down the shift key, right click on your drive and select Open in New Process. Next time you open a folder it will be launched in separate process and so a crash won't affect the other processes.

Re: Removing the clogs in windows 7

To removing the clogs in Windows 7. The window 7 had present a far superior performance than Vista. Still your PC might get sluggish due to some anomaly. Click on the Start and type RESMON and press Enter. This will launch the Resource Monitor. Click on CPU, Memory, Disk or Network tabs. Windows 7 will immediately show, which processes are engaging the highest system resources. The information on CPU offers you something beyond what you use to get in Task Manager. Suppose a certain program has been blocked you can right-click on its name in the list and select Analyze process. It reveals why the program was halted. The reason might be that it had to wait for another process. This could be the clue to solve your problem.

It permits you to inform about the bugs or present any good idea that comes to your mind. Just by clicking the Send Feedback button you can send your feedback to Microsoft. Now when you have finished sending feedback you might think of removing the Send feedback option. This would require you to apply a simple workaround on the registry. Step 1: Go for the regdit. Step 2: Search for the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Step 3: Set the FeedbackToolEnabled value to zero and restart your PC. In case, if you would like to suspend the Send Feedback links temporarily set the value to 3.
