Hi All,

After JFX reply 78
http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1236.msg17180#msg17180

I decide to create topic for "Extra Tweaks"
so one can put all .reg files with "Extra Tweaks" to a folder:

WinNTSetup--->Reg Tweaks-->"Search" button

Here is List of Available Tweaks at WinNTSetup:

Remove Checkboxes from selected items
Show Cmd.exe Icon on context menu
Show hidden files and folders
Show all file extensions
Show all Tray Icons
Use Small Taskbar Icons
XP-Style taskbar Buttons
Show Quick Launch Bar
Show Computer icon on Desktop
Show small desktop icons

Remove "Shortcut to" from new Shortcuts
Remove Arrow from Shortcuts
Disable Security Warning for downloaded files
Disable Aero Transparency
Disable automatic restart after Windows update
Disable Windows 8 First Logon Animation
Disable Windows 8 LockScreen
Boot To Desktop
Disable the new taskbar icons of windows 10

Disable System restore
Disable UAC and Defender
Disable Hibernate
Disable automatic Reboot on system failure
Turn off USB Device after safe remove
Disable Page file


PS: Some of these Tweaks may be required after OS Update ;)

Lancelot, Kyhi, others,
you might also be interested in this:
Windows Update PowerShell Module
https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/2d191bcd-3308-4edd-9de2-88dff796b0bc

I now have normal update turned off in W10, and use only this powershell module (also in audit mode), it allows for selective update install.
Seems a lot of people are using it for W10 now.

On some systems I also had to turn off automatic hardware updates, for this I use WinNTSetup with the -regtweaks option, and this reg:

Code: [Select]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearching]
"SearchOrderConfig"=dword:00000000

*

Disable Shortcut Suffix
Code: [Select]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]

KYHI:
You will also find a fair amount of reg tweaks, among the guides..
http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1977-windows-10-tutorial-index.html

One would have to personally decide which is useful and which is not..
