    vista settings

    I have couple questions about settings/tweaking in vista. Does anyone know
    what the values mean for superfetch in the registry? I know that the
    enableprefetch has settings of 1, 2, or 3 meaning off, boot files only, boot
    and application. Is it the same for superfetch? Is there a way to customize
    the toolbar on windows explorer like you can in XP. I usually added an icon
    for cut, copy, and paste but I don't know if it can be done in vista? Also
    can you make a global change to the view setting for folders? I like all of
    my folders to be in the List View. I tried using the folders options and
    selecting apply to all folders like I did in XP but that doesn't work.
