If you’re like me, you often don’t agree with what Microsoft thinks are useful features. Here’s a short compilation of the steps I take when dealing with a fresh Windows 7 install, which I’ll update as I apply them to my newest install.
Go to the Ease of Access Center, make the mouse easier to use, and check the box to prevent docking.
I only use the “Favorites” and “Computer” groups, so I hide the others (network and libraries).
It requires registry entry changes (right click first to give yourself permission to edit):
change b080010d to b090010d
change b0040064 to b0940064
