Registry tips for WM 6.5

* Start menu icons

Sizes (for png icons):

240x240 96 DPI 45x45
240x320 96 DPI 45x45
240x400 96 DPI 45x45
320x320 128 DPI 60x60
480x480 192 DPI 90x90
480x640 192 DPI 90x90
480x800 192 DPI 90x90
480x854 192 DPI 90x90

All icon entries go under the following key:

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start]
Create a sub-key matching the folder name or shortcut name the icon will go with, for example:

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start\Phone.lnk]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start\Tools]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start\Tools\QuickGPS.lnk]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start\Google Maps.lnk]
There are 4 possible values you can set under this key:

Group REG_DWORD Specifies whether the item is a folder. The value can be set to TRUE or FALSE. Set the value to TRUE to indicate that the item is a folder. If the value is not specified, the system will determine the Group value by verifying whether the registry key has any subkeys.
Icon REG_SZ Specifies the path and file name where the icon is located. The icon can consist of a PNG file or an embedded icon resource module. If this value is not specified, the default icon of the shell will be used.
Rank REG_DWORD Specifies the rank of the item. An item that specifies a larger value for Rank will be displayed before items that specify a lower value. If this item is not specified, the Rank will be set to 0.

To determine icon spacing, you'll need to examine the Rank value for existing icons, you can find the stock values in the following file: Base_Lang_xxxx\mxipinit_startmenu_001.provxml, where xxxx matches your Language ID code. A higher number = higher up in the chain, a lower number = lower down the chain. Any icons without a rank will be displayed at the bottom.

* Restore hidden settings items

Remove the "Redirect" value under the following keys:

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Owner]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Buttons]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Input]
* Allow in call recording with the native dialer

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\AudioRecording]
"Enabled"=dword:00000001
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Voice]
"EnableCallRecordMenuItem"=dword:00000001
"AllowInCallRecording"=dword:00000001
* Disable built-in magnifier on double-tap

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\GWE\MAGNIFIER]
"Enable"=dword:0
* Override default Lock Screen notification launchers

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\LockScreen\Notifications\Email]
"Application Command Line"="\Program Files\OEMApp\OEMApp.exe"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\LockScreen\Notifications\SMS]
"Application Command Line"="\Program Files\OEMApp\OEMApp.exe"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\LockScreen\Notifications\Voicemail]
"Application Command Line"="\Program Files\OEMApp\OEMApp.exe"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\LockScreen\Notifications\MissedCall]
"Application Command Line"="\Program Files\OEMApp\OEMApp.exe"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\LockScreen\Notifications\Contacts]
"Application Command Line"="\Program Files\OEMApp\OEMApp.exe"
