    Windows 10 Decrapifier


    Hi all and good day to ya. Well I was just randomly looking through the net today and ran across the this post at Spiceworks =-=> Windows 10 Decrapifier for 18XX/19XX Great site. Tuns of interesting stuff there. Anyway I just wanted to see if anyone has run this script? I just found it and wanted to show you all and see what you think of it. here's the script in a PHP.

    PHP Code: #Windows 10 Decrapifier 1803/1809#By CSAND
    #June 21 2019
    #
    #
    #PURPOSE: Eliminate much of the bloat that comes with Windows 10. Change many privacy settings to be off by default. Remove built-in advertising, Cortana, OneDrive, Cortana stuff (all optional). Disable some data collection.
    # Clean up the start menu for new user accounts. Remove a bunch of pre-installed apps, or all of them (including the store). Create a more professional looking W10 experience. Changes some settings no longer
    # available via GPO for Professional edition.
    #
    #DISCLAIMER: Most of the changes are easily undone, but some like removing the store are difficult to undo. I encourage you to research these changes beforehand, and read through the script.
    # Each section is described with comments, to make it easier to see what's going on.
    #
    #
    #INSTRUCTIONS: For best results use the following how-tos. Running from an existing profile on an "in-use" machine won't affect any already-existing user profiles and won't give the best results.
    # Read through the script to see what is disabled, and comment out anything you want to keep. By default a transcript is saved at SYSTEMDRIVE\WindowsDCtranscript.txt.

    #***Switches***
    #
    #Switch Function
    #---------------------------
    #No switches Disables unnecessary services and scheduled tasks. Removes all UWP apps except for some useful ones. Disables Cortana, OneDrive, restricts default privacy settings and cleans up the default start menu.
    #-AllApps Removes ALL apps including the store. Make sure this is what you want before you do it. It can be tough to get the store back. Seriously, don't do this unless you are 100% certain.
    #-LeaveTasks Leaves scheduled tasks alone.
    #-LeaveServices Leaves services alone.
    #-AppAccess By default this script will restrict almost all the permissions in Settings -> Privacy. This will prevent that from happening.
    #-ClearStart Empties the start menu completely leaving you with just the apps list.
    #-OneDrive Leaves OneDrive and Onedrive for Business fully functional.
    #-Tablet Use this for tablets or 2-in-1s to leave location and sensors enabled.
    #-Cortana Leave Cortana and web enabled search intact... if that's what you really want.
    #-Xbox Leave xBox apps and related items.
    #-NoLog Don't copy transcript to systemdrive\WindowsDCtranscript.txt.
    #-AppsOnly Only removes apps, doesn't touch privacy settings, services, and scheduled tasks. Cannot be used with -SettingsOnly switch. Can be used with all the others.
    #-SettingsOnly Only adjusts privacy settings, services, and scheduled tasks. Leaves apps. Cannot be used with -AppsOnly switch. Can be used with all others (-AllApps won't do anything in that case, obviously).

    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
