Registry tweak: Toggle between best performance and best appearance

You want to optimize Windows 7 for your next gaming session? Why not bind a registry tweak to your keyboard that can toggle between best performance and best appearance?
Toggle Between Best Performance and best appearance

Toggle Between Performance vs. Appearance

Important: You still have to log out and log in again after applying the registry tweak, that’s why it might be faster to apply the settings manually. However, I will see if I can come up with something to automatically restart the explorer afterwards.

Manually Create Registry Files:

Insert for best appearance:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VisualEffects]
“VisualFXSetting”=dword:00000001

Insert for best performance:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VisualEffects]
“VisualFXSetting”=dword:00000002
