Just an other tweak : enable desktop Windows Update on the last Windows 10 Technical Preview


Use desktop Windows Update = 0, disable it = 1

@Echo OffReg Add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX" /v "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

**Universal WaterMark Remover for Windows 10**

Have tried out serveral watermark removers and this is the only one that I have found that works!

- Click on the gray 'DOWNLOAD' Button then unzip and install.

- Removes the watermark 'Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview Evaluation copy. Build 9926'

  Done! ~DP

2) Enable new sound mixer :


Enable = 1, disable = 0

NOTE:  This is VERY experimental at this point.


Some interesting registry values seen being read by ApplicationFrameHost when it first starts...


  • Set as a decimal percentage, this one seems to resize Modern Apps...

[ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Scaling ]


LegacyAppScaleFactor    REG_DWORD    85



  • This one seems to remove the minimum window size restriction...

[ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\ApplicationFrame ]


DisableMinimumSize          REG_DWORD    1





Please do not try these on a critical system.  I only just discovered them and I'm not sure what all the implications may be.

Unsuprisingly, when I disabled UAC using this reg key NoelC pointed me at....




EnableLUA to 0


The new notifications box, new clock/calender and even the calculator didn't work anymore.


Oddly the calculator, even if you click the old Win32 version- only the new metro one loads.


This is the consistency issue Noel talks about. So I can't use the old calc.exe anymore. Thanks M$.


It also didn't fix the installation of files to the system32 folder being disabled anyway.


Its less Microsoft leading the way, more a chain gang being forced against their will to forced march.

@ralcool why not do it the old fashioned way?

@noelc I found out that when you go too smal it will change to phone layout similar to win8 with modernmix and I must say that the apps (at least the settings) work out perfectly this way...

Fun fact Win 10 had a Windows Update update while ago so we had a Windows Update Update to prepare for a WIndows Update now which then prepares for a Windows Update later...


THAT's software bureaucracy...
