Allow verbose status messages

This setting enables you to set-up Windows message that you will get, if your computer perform a shutdown, restart, logon or logoff.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
This setting enables you to set-up Windows message that you will get, if your computer perform a shutdown, restart, logon or logoff. If you start, shutdown, login or logoff your computer, Windows will display a small window containing information about what tasks Windows will do next.

Normally, it only displays general information like loading personal settings, but you won’t see detailed information about which files or settings are included in this task. If you use this setting, Windows slow down a little and it can help you get the detailed information.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create DWORD values “verbosestatus” and “DisableStatusMessages”, if these values do not exist.

Now, right-click and modify the value to “1” of “verbosestatus” and to “0” of “DisableStatusMessages” which can allow verbose status messages.

However, if you want to get back to the original state, delete the created values.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
