Registry customization for MultitaskingView (MTV) aka alt-tab, task view, and snap assist

Here are all the registry values (populated with their defaults) you can use to customize MTV.

Save the output below the line to a .reg file and then import it.

These values are read every time MTV is invoked so no need to reboot or restart explorer to pick up the changes.

If you come up with a cool combination, post it back here!
