Try pressing the Windows Key and the P key. When I do it that way I don't have to click apply and keep settings, it just does it.

This thread made my day complete. So far I have learned that leftkidney
hates the extra tick when changing desktop theme.

Brink states he knows of no way to change that. (That answer is good enough for me)

Then I learned from alphanumeric that using two keys you can avoid using one extra tick.

Then I learned the even aliens can make keyboard mistakes.

Now this. I love it. I want one.




It just don't get much better than this. Life is great.

if I press Apply then it can ask me no problem, but if I press OK thats what I want

is there something in the registry I can change to stop it from asking me this question?

I can have the recycle bin just delete things and not even ask me to confirm so why not this?
You'd rather reinstall windows than press a button every once in a while?

Also, the "OK" button is just an apply button that will close the current dialogue box once it's applied.

I run dual monitors most of the time. When I game I switch to just the main screen. I put two shortcuts on my taskbar. One for "Computer only" when I game, and one to switch back to "Extend" when I'm done.
