Here is an idea about a new Welcome Wizard for ReactOS.

The features listed below are only a few ideas, what this wizard could be capable of.

When a user logs in for the first time, a little window appears and asks for the proficiency level. Possible answers could be:

  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

Then this wizard changes some registry settings depending on which knowledge the user has got. For example:

  • Show/Hide hidden files and folders
  • Show/Hide extensions for known file types
  • Show/Hide the registry and NTOBJ
  • and much more things like that

With such a wizard it would be possible to give every user the interface needed for each person; Beginner does not have to mess with filename extensions and Advanced does not need to turn on all the features he needs.

These will only have to be the default settings. At a later point the options must remain accessible if desired, for example during troubleshooting, a technician might need to see the registry.
