Default Interesting things in windows xp???

I like to play about with windows xp and find out some interesting things. e.g. love to play with the registry to change settings etc etc. I just think that the operating system is to easy to work. Was just wondering if anyone had any great wee tips like this???

Hope that makes sense lol

2 programs that you can alter windows settings with
start, run, gpedit.msc (not available in Home edition)
or services.msc

but be careful with those, especially services

gpedit.msc: there are various things you can do. mainly I use it so I can make DOS scripts that I run on startup or shutdown

services.msc: controls what program/windows services run in the background. usually the ones integrated into Windows or other programs (e.g. messenger)
