With Windows Group Policy it’s possible to specify what features a user can use in the Windows Control Panel.
The problem is that a full cpl list is hard to find on the web.

Today I’ve read a marvelous way to make Firefox a whole lot faster, here is to do so:
Just follow these instructions — and don’t worry, if you mess it up, you won’t break anything.
- Type about:config into the address bar
- Type browser.cache into the Filter field
- Set browser.cache.disk.enable to false (double click it)
- Set browser.cache.memory.enable to true (double click it)
- Right click > New > Integer; type browser.cache.memory.capacity; press OK
- Type in 100000 (this is equivalent to 100 megabytes); press OK
- Close all Firefox tabs and windows, and then restart the browser
If you want more than 100 megabytes of cache — if you have lots of spare memory, or you’re prone to mammoth browsing sessions — type in 500000 instead for 500 megabytes of cache. To confirm everything is working, visit about:cache and you should see some ‘Memory cache device’ information.
This is tested with Firefox 3.7 & 4
Today I found a very nice plugin called Outlook on the Desktop. I know it’s a very original name. A little word of explanation you can find below:
The application offers transparency, comes with highly-customizable interface, and behavior specific options. You can change height and width of the active window and move it to any position on the desktop.
In Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008, when a removable drive (USB flash drive, flash card reader, portable hard drive, etc.) is attached for the first time, Windows mounts it to the first available local drive letter.
So far so good. But if there is a network share on this letter, Windows will use it anyway for the new USB drive, because network shares are specific to the current user and not visible in the context of the system where the letter is assigned
Working with Windows 7 I soon discovered a whole bunch of cool new features that might come in handy for a lot of users. Many things in Windows 7 seem to be pretty much in line with what Vista already has in, but there are also a lot of new and exciting features and changes. The taskbar is one of them.
