I imagine that here in SF might have some developer, or even a phd in the Windows registry who can tell us how to do this without third part apps. But thanks anyway!

There is no way to do that natively in Windows 7

It has been requested from Microsoft, but they have not yet implemented it. At the moment only third party applications will do it.
