Restore Previously Open Folders After Shutdown !!!!

If you need to access lot of folders on your home computer or on the network regularly, then you can set them re-open automatically, when you will login, shutdown or restart your computer next time. There is no need to open regularly used folders manually, just configure the simple sitting, your computer will automatically reload all the previously opened windows.

By default windows XP disables this option to reload automatically all the previously opened windows, when you login on, shutdown or restart your computer.

Follow the given steps to configure your computer to reload previously opened folders automatically after shutdown.

* To edit this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer with administrative rights.
* First click on Start button then go to Control Panel.
* Open the “Appearance and Themes” option in control panel then click on Folder Options.
* A small windows dialog box will appear with the title “Folder options”, click on View tab.
* Under the Advanced setting section, scroll down to bottom and click the “Restore previous folder windows at logon” option and then click Ok button to save sitting.
* Now when you log off, restart or shutdown, your computer will automatically open the previously opened folders from the same location as before.

Reduce Temporary Internet File Space !!!

he temporary internet files clutter your hard drive with copies of each page visited. These can build up over time and take up disk space. Even more bothersome is that instead of getting new pages each time IE often takes the page out the temp internet files. This can be a problem if you are viewing a website that is updated all the time. If you are on a slow connection such as a 56K or lower then this can be good but if you are on a fast broadband connection, like me, then you can get away with decreasing the size of your temp internet files to just one meg without any performance decrease.
