Useful Windows Tricks you did not know.....

1.Go to start->run.Type regedit.Now go to:HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/CurrentVersion/PoliciesUnder this key, there will definitely be a key named explorer.
Now under this explorer key we can create new DWORD values and modify it's value to 1 in order to impose the restriction.
