Skip the Open With web service prompt

When you attempt to open an unknown file type a popup message is shown asking whether you would like to use the online web service to find the appropriate program to open the file. This setting allows you to disable this prompt, causing the Open With dialog to display immediately.

Navigate to:
HLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

create or modify the DWORD value called InternetOpenWith and set it to 1 to disable Web Service Prompt.

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
