IE and XP Tweaks

If you are amazed by Mozilla Custom Keywords, then heres the same in M$ Internet Explorer
  • Copy the following in yourFavorite Editor.



    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl]
    "provider"=""

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\g]
    @="http://www.google.com/search?query=%s"
    " "="+"
    "#"="%23"
    "&"="%26"
    "?"="%3F"
    "+"="%2B"
    "="="%3D"
    "/"="%2F"
    "%"="%24



  • Save the File with the extention as .reg (which means it is a Registry File)
  • Execute the file, Registry entry will be Installed.
  • Open your IE and in the address bar, type g Love and Machines
  • Yo!
    (Information on tweaks is available here.)
    So, the custom keyword functionality is set in your IE. btw, unless it is absolutely neccessary, try consider going for a better browser

    Windows Xp seems to have some PowerToys.
    A good one was desktop Panel,wherein we have 4 desktops ( similar to Linux distros provide default :)
