    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  5. The Ultimate Realtek HD Audio Driver Mod for Windows 10

    For those who just need to enable Dolby Digital Live 5.1 for your realtek sound card here is complete manual. Works for me in Win 10 Creators update (1703). Easy installation if you do not need these Dolby things just allow DDL 5.1

    Here is the post #27
    https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...by-digital-live-dts-interactive.228612/page-2
    and here is the link for Realtek R2.80 driver doownload (can not be found on Realtek official site)
    MEGA

    You also need to enable Test mode before installation of the driver.

    Enable Test mode:

    Step 1. Open the Windows command promt as "Run as Administrator".

    Step 2. Run "bcdedit -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" (without the "").

    Step 3. To finalize the process run "bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON" (without the "").

    Step 4. Reboot and you're done.

    To disable it do step 1 and run these commands on step 2 and 3:

    Step 2. "bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" (without the "")

    Step 3. "bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF" (without the "")

    Then do step 4 and you're done.


    Then you can continue to installation of the driver.

    I hope I helped you, if any questions, ask here I'll try to answer you if I'll be able.

    Creative X-Fi Soundcards and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 = Complete Disaster / Not Working

    Any Windows update breaks my Creative sound drivers. Best way for me is to disable it via group policy:

    • Go to Run –> gpedit.msc
    • In the Group Policy Editor, go to Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> System –> Device Installation –> Device Installation Restrictions
    • In the right hand pane, select “Prevent installation of devices not described by other policy settings” and set it to Enabled.
    Once that's done, uninstall the driver Windows put in there and install the correct one.
