Doesn't work, it's a legacy setting from previous windows versions, has no effect on 10

My Win 10 Enterprise edition is pretty free of bloat and sending my personal data to Microsquish servers so they can sell it to 3rd party asshats.

gpedit is the way to tweak windows 10.

Here is one that might be useful.. For fixing modern apps and start/taskbar issues, not working or responding anymore.


Run PowerShell as admin and type this command:
Quote:
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
http://superuser.com/questions/88058...ch-is-not-work


All the sudden my start menu (full screen) started to act funny. I was readjusting/resizing icons and tweaked settings a bit, then icons start glitching, after reboot nothing worked anymore,.. Any modern app (groove, weather, edge, store,..) or normal program in taskbar right-click or click on taskbar start..
This command fixed it again.

^ To use that tool you will need to unistall the drivers you do not want first before the tool will recognize the driver you want to block.
