How To: Remove MSN Deskbar Buttons

Do you want a more minimal MSN Deskbar? Do you not use the drop-down buttefly button or the search arrow? Well, you can remove it. The Channel 9 guys did it in their video, and Gimpster explains in their comments how you can do it.

Here's how it works:
Go to the Registry Editor (you can type "=regedit" in the Deskbar to save time).

Go to My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSN Apps\DB.

Right-click and click New > DWORD Value.

Name it "Buttons".

Double-click on it and change its value to "1".

Close the Registry Editor.

Right-click on an empty toolbar space and click Toolbars > MSN Deskbar to clear its checkbox, then do the same thing again to bring it back.

You should be left with something like this:

Pretty cool. Now, where's my Reg Hack for Google?

As always, do not edit the registry unless you know what you are doing. It is very dangerous work.
