It's a lot of work to do this for all those tweaks.
First, you'll have to locate the registry keys that those settings belong in.
Then you'll have to know what the settings (data values) are that you'll need to set them the way you want them.
Then you'll have to figure out how to construct an .reg file to merge them

It's not techically all that difficult - but it will take a long, long time to figure out.

hmm..okay. thanks for the answer.

another question i have here - is there any way to make that navigated box below editable? i find it a chore to always use the navigator instead of just pasting the directory in - it's much faster that way.

Have you tried pasting the path into the file name box and pressing Enter?

The file name box is at the bottom of the window - not at the top where the address is. I tried it on my system before I posted to you.
