Hi everybody,
I know Microsoft likes to move things around with a new OS release.
They did it in Vista with Add and Remove Programs, changing it to Programs and Features and carried it over
to Win. 7. I found a Registry hack that changed it in Vista. I tried it on WIN 7. and it gave me an error,

"Not all data written, some registry keys still open"


It's on this page under "Control Panel" http://www.techoddity.com/tweak
This is it when I used edit.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{7b81be6a-ce2b-4676-a29e-eb907a5126c5}]
@="Add/Remove Programs"
"LocalizedString"=-



Does anyone know if there is one for 7 or how to edit the registry it to change it to Add and Remove
Maybe one of you with Vista can use it. It worked fine when I had Vista.

Pavilion dv77-1450us
Windows 7 Home Prem.
This is just one of my pet peeves with Windows.
Thanks
The world's round, I'll get there.

I wouldn't mess with the registry for something as silly as this. Seriously. It's not worth it.

Eventually we all have to adjust to change.

Just think "P" for "Programs"...

I'm glad you got Windows 7 and in a little time you will be glad also. As Ninja has posted, I also wouldn't start trying to change such things. Just give yourself and Windows 7 a little time to get use to each other. If you had Vista it won't take you long.
