    Customising News - all instructions talk of an Edit icon - where is it? If it is an icon, what does it look like. Could this be blocked by my employer - ie. is there a chance it has been removed by my corporate admin? I want to block Sky news and never see their news items. I'd do the same for any other biased news services.On other Windows systems I have done the same and it comes back so want to make sure it sticks.

    Customising the Different Image Files on Windows 10

    Hello Guys,

    I am trying to customise the various image files (bmp, gif, jpeg, jpg, png, svg, tif and tiff) on Windows 10 and noticed the following:


    1. the bmp, gif, png, jpeg, jpg and svg files are all programmed to use the same icon. Changing the icon for one will result in the other image files using the same new icon; and
    2. the tif and tiff files cannot be changed.

    The way I do it is I use File Type Manager to locate the default icons key for each file in the registry and change the icon from there (this is because File Type Manager hangs whenever I try to change an icon using it).

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could go about:


    1. customising the different image files to use different icons for each one; and
    2. changing the tif and tiff image file icons?

    Much appreciate any guidance / advice.

    Thank you,
    Andrew

    Start Menu Customisation

    I like having a decent list of most used apps on the start launch list in W7. I would change to [not] 'large icons' in the start customisation options, then set the start menu size to (say) 20 apps.
    Shaun posed a great solution to restoring the 9879-type 'resizable' start menu on 9926 (thanks!), but tinkering with the registry entries that controlled the icon sizes in W7 doesn't seem to work in W10TP.
    However, there is clearly some mechanism that configures the 'all programs' list to use small icons
    Anyone have any suggestions to change the main start list to small(er) icons?

    I suppose what i'm wanting is the W7 desktop back - and that's probably not far from the truth; for a desktop user, the W7 Aero presentation was smart, nice to look at, and more productive because it had better delineation between content and functional zones that the Playschool (is this to become the new name for it?) UI doesn't seem to have (for me).

    Retain the options to allow the users the options to configure the UI presentation the way they are happiest with, and perhaps then do the analytics to see what everyone chooses?
