Rocket Powered Turbo Slug

I was becoming quite annoyed with the speed, or rather lack thereof, of this new Windows Mobile 2005.It was an absolute dog, taking a couple seconds just to scroll one page in the Programs menu. I was begining to wonder if I had make a mistake, and was thinking about downgrading. Then I remembered an old tweak. Edit the registry on the PDA, changing the value of HKLM\SYSTEM\GDI\GLYPHCACHE from 8192 to 32768. This increases the amount of memory used by the Glyph cache, but since WM2005 only uses the RAM for software and not for storage, I have TONS of RAM available. Now it's nice and crispy, like it was with the original OS. Yay for secret obscure registry entries.

But it's not really pron. Ps i hope you don't get mad at me for showing this one here. you sometimes have adult stuff on your LJ so i thought maybe I'd show the packrat girl one i just saw.

Don't you just love it.,..
When random strangers ask you questions because they googled a computer problem you solved?

yea. me too.

So anyway, how do you edit the pda's registry? Is there a regedit function in WM2k5?

Re: Don't you just love it.,..
Unfortunately, Microsoft has never included a registry editor in any version of Windows CE.

Fortunately though, there are a number of third party editors. I use PHM Registry Editor. It looks like their web site is down, but there are other places to download it. It's freeware.
