  1. I have a few simple Windows 10 settings and changes questions for my upcoming laptop which...


    1.) Since it's an SSD, can I just turn off Fast boot/Fast startup in Windows? I heard that it doesn't really help SSDs with boot times much and plus it just gives extra wear'n'tear for the SSD due to the fact it's saving some running services/drivers/things (idk what exactly) in the storage drive (this time SSD) kinda like hibernation. So, Fast boot off?

    2.) Could I disable hibernation mode with the "powercfg -h off" command? I never used hibernation and I think I never will. I only use Sleep mode, shutdown and restart. If I turn off Hibernation with that command, will the Sleep mode be affected too or somethin'?

    3.) Should I enable in the registry ClearPagefileAtShutdown (or whatever it was called something like this)? I heard that If I set the value of it to 1 in the registry then the pagefile will get cleared off and free up space from my SSD every time I shut down the laptop. Idk If I should do it..

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive

    Hello -
    Thanks for the return. Before I undertake changing the Registry, I have a question.
    The steps in my Registry, for my version of Windows 10, were a bit different, but I think I eventually got to the right spot.
    The last step is to change the number of places you want to list in Recent Places. In my case, the default Max Display listed 50 as the number. So, if I were to change that number, how do I know the Save As page will be one of those places? Or, a similar question, will this registry change delete the tab Recent from my Save As page? This is what I would like to happen.
    When I received my computer in Nov. 2016, the Recent tab was not listed in the Save As page. Something caused it to be added over time. Which brings me to this second question. Would there be any benefit in deleting the changed registry listing and reverting back to the default listing? See attachment.

    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
