Registry "hacks" are little-known settings and tricks that you can use to improve the performance of your Pocket PC. ("Registry" refers to a database of system settings used by all versions of the Windows operating systems.)

Hacks like these are not supported or documented in any way by Microsoft or the device manufacturers! Only the truly dedicated like Chris De Herrera ferret them out for the rest of us to enjoy! For example, one of the most popular hacks that RegKing offers is the one that makes Pocket Internet Explorer pretend to be Internet Explorer 5.x. This makes it possible for your Pocket PC to view some of the more secure sites on the internet, such as banks or investment sites.

The wonderful thing about RegKing is that you don't have to know a single thing about the registry or the internal workings of the Pocket PC/Windows CE to enjoy the benefits of its registry hacks.

As you can see from this screenshot above, applying a hack is as simple as selecting the benefit you want and clicking the "Apply" button. Of course, another wonderful thing about RegKing is that you can quickly and easily undo any changes you don't like by highlighting the hack, and clicking "Undo." It couldn't be simpler.
