    Rename Windows 10 system folders


    Hi,

    All the folders less ShellExperienceHost in the following 4 folders, has been renamed.

    C:\Windows\SystemApps
    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps​
    C:\Windows\InfusedApps\
    C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Packages

    It has gone a few days, and still everything is working normal, at least from what I can see Can anyone please answer to the next 3 questions?

    1.If is not already happening in the background, what it will happen or what it could happen sooner or later regarding the properly functioning of OS, services, system applications(I don't think I use any) or other used third party applications?

    2. If it will not happen something for sure sooner or later, can someone please tell where are the biggest chances to something not work like it should?

    - security of the os + it's applications, other services, and third party programs.
    - stability(proper functionality) of the os + it's applications, other services, and third party programs.
    - slowing down the system and the applications.

    3. If you consider that something wrong will happen for sure, is there the option to prevent it without renaming only the OS dependencies folder? Or the only chance to prevent something bad which will happen 100% for sure, is to let all the names of the folders default, like they were before?

    Thank you.

    :)

    Rename Windows 10 system folders

    Experiment, test, fun, try to understand what, why, how, when, were it will happen

    In the same, enjoying to have an as minimal-CORE-light-net-smooth-micro-slim-minuscule-simple as possible configuration, as possible have on the OS ONLY the dependencies(like I have been doing my best to have as much as possible the minimal-CORE-light-net-smooth-micro-slim-minuscule-simple
    Linux configuration I could.

    Maybe only a little bit for privacy and more for security, considering that any extra active service or application, and if keeping all those folders "active" could be exploited.

    From my knowledge I don't use any of those app, or Windows store at all.

    Regards.
