    There is a ton of this information out there, so I thought that I'd start a new thread on how to:
    There is a lot that can be changed to make WM run better.
    Most are registry tweaks. I am providing this information AS-IS. I am not responsible if these screw up your phone.
    If you aren't sure about them, please ask first.
    With that said, here we go!

    *****************************************************
    Instructions on how to move the IE temporary files to your storage card instead of main memory,
    1. Create 3 folders on your storage card:
    \Storage Card\Temp\Temporary Internet Files
    \Storage Card\Temp\Cookies
    \Storage Card\Temp\History

    2. Modify HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell key values to match the new folders you've just created.
    *****************************************************
    Instructions on how to move the email email and attachments to your storage card instead of main memory:
    1. Create a 2 folders on your storage card.
    \Storage Card\Mail\
    \Storage Card\Mail\Attachments\

    2. Modify HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\MAPI. Create 2 new string values. The first should be called PropertyPath and should have a value matching the mail folder you created. The second should be called AttachPath and should have a value matchings the attachments folder you created. (ie. \Storage Card\Mail and \Storage Card\Mail\Attachments)

    You'll need to restart your phone and resync. Make sure to delete the files off the old locations in main memory as they don't get deleted automatically.
    *****************************************************
    Change the location of My Documents to the SD Card.
    This one is complicated but possible. I had to play around with this one for a while trying and failing with several methods, succeeding with this one. The order in which you do this is essential.

    Please ensure that your SD card and My Documents are backed up. It is recommended that you do this on a fresh install of your ROM. This cleared out my “My Documents” folder but I was able to restore it.

    1. Reset your device
    2. Synchronize your device with your PC
    3. Navigate to
    “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\Profiles\SDMemory “
    4. Change the “Folder” key to “My Documents”
    5. Rename your original “My Documents” folder to “My Docs”. This is a crucial step, but it does not matter what you name it.
    6. Power off and reset your device.
    7. Sync your Device
    You should see in “File Explorer that your “My Documents” folder has an SD card icon next to it.
    Copy your files back into your My Documents.
    ************************************************** ***

    Only problem with doing this on an already set up system is that if you have anything installed to your Storage Card, then all the links become invalid - you can resolve this by using Resco Explorer / Total Commander to reset all of the links.
    Haven't tried to install any apps after doing this, would be interested in hearing if it still installs there like normal - decided to reset the name to Storage Card, rather than have to remake 200+ links to all the apps / games that are on there - think I'll wait until I remake the system next time!
    (Verified Working on WM 6.1 Standard)

    *****************************************************
    Disable Threaded SMS (WM 6.1)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSAvailable
    Change dword value from 1 to 0
    Reboot and you're done
    *****************************************************
    Enable FileSystem cache
    To enable the FileSystem cache, speeding up overall performance of your pocket pc at the risk of the cache not being written on a sudden reset:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\FATFS\EnableCache = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable again:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\FATFS\EnableCache = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    *****************************************************
    Add a 'Disconnect' button (and Timer) to the Connection List for GPRS
    To add a Disconnect button:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Phone\Flags2 = 8 (DWORD decimal)
    To add a Disconnect button and a timer display showing how long GRPS is in use for the session:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Phone\Flags2 = 16 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable both the Disconnect button and the timer:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Phone\Flags2 = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    *****************************************************
    Default SMS Delivery Notifications to on
    To always have SMS Delivery Notifications enabled:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable them (can still enable per-SMS in SMS settings):
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    *****************************************************
    Make reminders show only once
    By default, reminders will keep bugging you for 2 minutes. You can change this to zero minutes by adjusting this value:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\Reminders\AutoSnooze\AutoSnoozeMins = 0 (DWORD decimanl)

    Note that you can set this to any value you like. Alternative to setting this value to zero is to delete the '?AutoSnooze' key altogether

    *****************************************************
    Change the SMS Sent notification text
    If you just want the "Message Sent" notification to read something different, adjust the following:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Svc\SMS\MessageSent = "Message Sent" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

    *****************************************************
    Always require SMS Delivery notification
    If you always want an SMS Delivery notification (see note below!), and are tired of ticking the 'Request message delivery notification' checkbox, set:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable again:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings\SMSDeliveryNotify = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    Note 1: Delivery notifications will depend on your and the recipient's operator network capabilities! Note 2: You can still override this with the regular checkbox.

    *****************************************************
    Show Calendar event text in Week View
    If you wish to see a Calendar event's text in the Week View, set the following:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowTextInWeekView = 1 (DWORD decimal)
    To disable it again:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\ShowTextInWeekView = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    *****************************************************
    Speed up SD Card Transfer
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\SDCARD\ClientDrivers\Class\MMC_CLASS
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\SDCARD\ClientDrivers\Class\SDMEMORY_CLASS
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\SDCARD\ClientDrivers\Class\SDMEMORY_CLASS\High_Capacity
    Change ‘BlockTransferSize’ from 64 to 16. This makes SD much more responsive with 4x faster read times!

    *****************************************************
    Enable IE faster caching
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
    Internet Settings\AggressiveCache=1
    Instructions on tethering using Bluetooth:
    1. Pair your phone with you computer so that is shows on your computer as a Network Access Point. Mine displays as SHG-i607 with a Network Type of 100mb ethernet.
    2. On phone, select Start->Applications->FIle Explorer
    3. On the phone, go to \Windows directory
    4. Run Internet Sharing
    5. Select PC Connection: Bluetooth PAN
    6. Select Network Connection: Media Net
    7. Click Connect
    8. On PC, click connect on Blackjack bluetooth phone networking icon

    Notes about tweaks

    If you are going to change the location of the My Documents to the storage card; and enable the attachments and IE Temp to the storage card, to ensure that you get it to work right; then follow these steps:
    (Side note: If you are going to enable these, I recommend using a 1GB or larger MicroSD card to gain the most benefit. Using a 256mb or 512mb card will work, but will fill a lot faster!

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\SDCARD\ClientDrivers\Class\SDMEMORY_CLASS\High_Capacity
    Change ‘BlockTransferSize’ from 64 to 16. This makes SD much more responsive with 4x faster read times!

    5)************************************************** ***
    Reboot and all the settings will take effect. I want to point this out, if you change the default storage locations to the Memory Card, DO NOT REMOVE THE MEMORY CARD WHILE THE PHONE IS RUNNING, AND DO NOT BOOT THE PHONE UP WITHOUT THE MEMORY CARD IN IT!!
    If you boot the phone without the memory card after these tweaks, the home screen will be blank, and will require a reboot.
    After that, the registry will reset itself back to default, putting the default storage locations back to default settings.

    I have done these settings on my BlackJack with Windows 6.1 Standard, and it works great!
