Is there a program that will restore the registry permissions for all registry keys? For some reason, once in a while, I find some registry keys that I don't have permission to read even though I'm the administrator and the only user. Thanks

Is there a way to resize the command window? For some reason I can resize it's height all the way but the width only goes about 2/3 of the way.

It should work for Home, and regarding your second question if you click the lil c:\ icon on the upper left hand side corner it'll bring up a menu, and then go to properties, hit the Layout tab and select your desired widths / heights

But why can't I manually resize the width to the width of the screen?
