    Registry tweaks from Win7 that no longer work in 10


    I have somewhat automated installation process of Windows 7 that works really well, but parts of it don't work in Windows 10. I could use some help.
    Problem1:
    At some point during messing around with mounted installation image, I apply various reg tweaks, specifically new entries in the context menu of My Computer (This PC in Win10??).
    Well, that doesn't work at all in the new version. I can't even import that reg file, cmd yells out some error.
    Would anyone know what the correct registry hive and keys are?

    This is how I have it for Win7:
    Code: ;My Computer context menu ;Add Services [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Services] "Icon"="filemgmt.dll,-236" "Position"="Top" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Services\command] @="mmc.exe /s services.msc" ;Add Registry Editor [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Registry Editor] "Icon"="regedit.exe" "Position"="Top" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Registry Editor\command] @="regedit.exe" ;Add Event viewer [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Event Viewer] "Icon"="eventvwr.exe" "Position"="Top" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Event viewer\command] @="eventvwr.exe" ;Adds Device Manager [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager] "Icon"="shell32.dll,-13" "Position"="Top" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager\command] @="mmc.exe /s devmgmt.msc" ;Adds Add/Remove to right click of MY Computer [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Add/Remove Programs] "Icon"="imageres.dll,-161" "Position"="Top" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Add/Remove Programs\command] @="control.exe appwiz.cpl"[/quote]

    Registry tweaks

    Why?

    Save a
    System Image Backup,


    Set
    System Restore
    point

    Backup the registry:
    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows


    Then you have three separate backups you'll probably need.



    If this is to improve performance, no registry tweaks will compare to having a good solid install like the one compiled in

    Clean Install Windows 10.


    You will get and keep the best possible install to the exact extent you stick with the steps, tools and methods in

    Clean Install Windows 10
    .

    Short of that you can go over the
    Windows 10 Performance and Install Integrity Checklist - Microsoft Community
    to make sure it's set up correctly, optimized for best performance and any needed repairs get done.

    Hello Ric,

    (Also holds good for Windows 10)

    Note: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
