  1. Restore "Turn Windows features on or off" to default settings?


    Hi,I was trying to optimize my Surface Pro 4 running Windows 10 21H1 so it could have the same security features as Windows 11 see this article: https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-11-has-advanced-hardware-security-heres-how-to-get-it-in-windows-10-today/. It seems I accidentally clicked a box or two in the "turn windows features on or off" app, so I'm wondering how I can get my computer back to its default settings without having to reset it. I don't remember which boxes were and weren't check-marked originally.Thanks

    :)

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild

    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Restore "Turn Windows features on or off" to default settings? :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.

  3. Win 10 Pro 64x: under Turn Windows features on or off, what are the default features?

    Hi,

    Thank you for the update on the issue.

    When you will open the Windows features window the options in front of which there is a check mark then those options are turned on by default. You may refer to the steps provided below to open Windows feature on.

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type appwiz.cpl
    • Click on Turn Windows features on or off.
    • Now check the list and see the option in front of which there is a check mark.

    For example Internet explorer, media features, Print to PDF etc.

    Do keep us updated.

    Regards,
