Want to quickly see all the column in explorer without having to resize them individually? This tip does it for you.
Simple press CTRL + + (press the plus button twice on the numeric keypad), this will adjust the column width so you can view the info in each column.
This tip may also work with programs based on the Windows explorer interface. Try it out!
Note: You may have to expand the window borders to see all the columns.

Default Name and Company Information (Windows 9x and NT)
When you install a new application, using MS Setup, a default Name and Company are shown, these values can be changed when the details have changed or are incorrect.
1. Using Regedit open the key below.
2. Modify the two values of 'DefName' and 'DefCompany', and change the values to your current Name and Company respectively.
3. Next time you install a program these new values will be used.
Note: This will not affect the registered names of existing applications, it only affects new installations.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MS Setup (ACME)\User Info]
Data Type: REG_SZ
