Delay when making a right click on the desktop

I had a up to 3 second delay each time I right clicked on the desktop or on a folder and this is actually caused by the context menu of the Intel Graphic Driver.

Deleting the Intel Graphic Driver from the context menu fixed it for me:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\igfxDTCM

automatically download subtitles and add it to vlc

Because English is not my mother tongue and I can’t always follow dialogues in movies, I wished a couple of times that there would be a easy way to add subtitles. You can add subtitles with VLC without extension but then you need to have the file already or you need to search in the internet for it.
Luckily you can extend vlc with a great subtitle plugin which automatically searches the internet and finds a suitable subtitle. This saves you some time and steps.

  1. Download the extension: https://github.com/exebetche/vlsub
  2. Copy the files into the following directory:
    Windows: C:/Program Files/VideoLAN/VLC/lua/extensions/
    Mac OS X: /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/lua/extensions/
    Linux: ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/
  3. Restart VLC Player
  4. Now you should find a new entry for VLSub under extensions.

Context menu appears slow with right mouse click on desktop on Windows 8.1

When I right clicked on my desktop it took about 30 second until the context menu appeared. I tried to solve it with updating the graphic card drivers but it still didn’t help. Finally I found the solution.

Delete all Graphiccard related entries in the registry:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

GPO Loopback

Usually the user content of a GPO will be ignored if it is a ou which just hast computers in it. But what to do if you want certain user settings to have them applied to just certain computers. For example for Terminal Servers you might have them more restricted.

To do this you need to activae Loopback:
[Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy\User Group Policy loopback processing mode]

There are two modes:
1. Merge
If user settings are already applied they will be used and will be replaced with the new ones in the loopback process.

2. Replace
Ignores all already applied user GPOs und will just use the ones in the loopback process.
