Control whether Windows converts filenames and folders to lowercase


If you type in a folder or filename using all CAPS, Windows helpfully pretty prints the name, changing the case to uppercase for
the first letter and lowercase for the rest. If you want to turn off the pretty
printing, you can use the following Windows NT / Windows 2000 registry hack.
Without it, for example, Windows converts MYFOLDER to
Myfolder.

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key:
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
Name:
DontPrettyPath
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1 leave case as entered
