Ultra Recall options registry entries

Several of the Ultra Recall options that are not configurable from the Tools | Options dialog are documented here. The below ZIP file contains registry files to update the settings. Extract and double-click a .reg file in Explorer to change the related setting, then restart UR to use the updated setting. True/false settings have an EnableSetting.reg and DisableSetting.reg file, and the rest have a SetSetting.reg file. To go back to the default setting, delete the associated registry value via RegEdit.

Note: DWORD values in the .reg file must be specified as hexadecimal. To convert from decimal to hex, use the Windows Calculator, Programmer mode. Or edit the value in the Registry Editor, checking the Decimal option.
