  1. Apart from all the other tweaks to stop dear mother from updates overload I use a tool from the MDL forum called Windows Update MiniTool which allows me to hide updates as well and only download the ones I want and so far it has worked very well and the update service only gets turned on when I decide to update after testing on another machine
  2. Hi again and took a while with the holidays and life but when opening shell32.dll.mui with ResHacker as per NoelC suggestion I found in String No. 337 the entries 5382, "&Search the Store" and 5383, "Opens the Store to search for an app" and upon removing them and recompiling and saving the file then replacing the originals in C:\Windows\System32\en-US and C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US and restarting the text was gone but it left a blank space that when clicked on still produced the popup as below After some more digging I found it in twinui.dll.mui which are in C:\Windows\System32, C:\Windows\System32\en-US, C:\Windows\SysWOW6 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US and when removing the entries 3106, "You’ll need a new app to open this %1!ws!", 3107, "Get “%1” from the Store" and 3110, "You’ll need a new app to open this %1!ws! file" and repeating as above after a restart the popup is no longer there but the blank space remains. I can find a reference to the 3106, 3107, and 3110 entries from the twinui.dll.mui in usercpl.dll file in the UIFILE section but removing these did nothing and not even sure if it’s connected and hope someone might have an idea how to resize that part of the menu. I also searched shel32.dll imageres.dll and others but so far can't find any menu or other items to remove that space
  3. Thanks dencorso and NoelC. I will try to use the equivalent files from the Enterprise or Enterprise N versions and see if that removes the entry in the Open With menu and if not will try to modify the exisiting files themselves. I'm using a test computer for this so no issue if it breaks the system. I agree NoelC it is a worthy cause to try and remove all remmanants of the apps not needed and also gain more knowledge about Win 10 which I believe was written by an alien monkey. I'll report my findings back
  4. Hi all and hope all is well in your world. I have asked this on a couple of other forums (wintenforum and MDL) but so far no answer and hoping maybe someone here has an idea. I clean installed Win 10 Pro X64 TH2 after rebuilding the ISO using MSMG toolkit and removing what I didn't want including the store. Everything works like a well oiled machine but, and it's really just cosmetic not a problem, when I right click certain files like jpg, zip or reg it has an entry in the Open with menu for 'Search the store" as per the pic which when clicked brings up a message saying "You'll need a new app to open this windows-ms-store" which makes sense as there's no store but I can't find the entry anywhere in the registry and all attempts to remove it so far failed. If anyone has an idea I would be very grateful
