A hidden message or feature in an application. This guide covers the undocumented and hidden features in Windows XP. All of the following were tested in Windows XP only.


Secret – Hidden Command Line Switch

Instructions – Go to “Start”, “Run” and Type defrag c: -b to defragment the Boot and Application Prefetch information.

Windows XP will run this automatically every three days or so, during system idle periods. BootVis will evoke this when you run the “Optimize System” function. There is no need to manually run this unless you wish to immediately optimize a newly installed application’s load time.


Secret – Hidden Install Creator

Instructions – Go to Start, Run, type iexpress

Notes – IExpress is a technology designed to simplify creation of a setup program. Using the step-by-step IExpress Wizard, you can create self-extracting files that automatically run the setup program contained inside. The setup program

can be an .inf file or an executable program. IExpress technology automatically removes the setup files after installation, saving the user time and frustration.
