There used to be a fantastic tool for Windows XP, called TweakUI Power Toys.
I had it, I used it, I loved it. Anyway, I seemed to have found the Windows 10 equivalent... (not the lame one from MS).https://winaero.com/comment.php?comment.news.1836
It's as powerful if not more so, than the old TweakUI. I've been playing around with it.I recommend creating a restore point, before playing around with this tool.Occasionally run sfc /scannow from an elevated Command Prompt, to make sure you haven't broken anything.
Some of the more desired tweaks in this tool...
Disable Shares, disable telemetry, disable MS driver updates or even all the updates.
1000's of others.
It scans clean with both my local Bitdefender Internet Security 2020, and at VirusTotal.
Most if not all things can easily be enabled/disabled with just a click or a checkmark. Lastly, just about every tweak, has a "link" to a description of the tweak in question, with directions on how to apply the tweak manually, if so desired./e In the top pic, only 25% of the settings are shown.
