Disable Windows low disk space warning in one line


I've had it up to my eyeballs with the nagging Windows low disk space warning and offers from my helpful operating system to clean up the junk I have lying around. If you have a drive or two that remains constantly on the edge of full for good reason, you probably share my sentiment.

I went looking for a solution, and I found a few. Most of them involved lengthy descriptions of how to navigate the registry just to add the "NoLowDiskSpaceChecks" key. Here's a much easier solution; one command line you can cut and paste into any open command prompt window.
REM copy here 
regini HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer "NoLowDiskSpaceChecks" = REG_DWORD 1
REM end copy here
(REM lines added to make this easier to copy correctly)
