Set the Search Screen to the Classic Look

When I first saw the default search pane in Windows XP, my instinct was to return it to its classic look; that puppy had to go. Of course, I later discovered that a doggie door is built into the applet. Click “Change preferences” then “Without an animated screen character.” If you’d rather give it a bare-bones “Windows 2000” look and feel, fire up your Registry editor and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Explorer CabinetState.

You may need to create a new string value labeled “Use Search Asst” and set it to “no”.
