from here




2. Disable Windows 10 Home/Pro Update

With a registry entry can prevent the automatic updates because they can install immediately.

Disable Windows 10 Home Updates
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"AUOptions"=dword:00000002
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003

Disable Windows 10 Pro Updates
Win + R, press enter and start gpedit.msc.
Or enter and start Group Policy in the search of the taskbar
In the left tree then Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update
Configure Automatic Updates in the right pane then double-click set to enabled and select the 2

Disable Windows 10 Pro Updates in Group Policy
Win + R, press enter and start gpedit.msc

4. Remove Modern apps

on Wed 29 Jul 2015 - 23:48
Remove a specific bundled app:

Code:
Opening PowerShell as administrator

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers

for example: Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection_3.2.7240.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

Remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection_3.2.7240.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

this will remove the bundled Solitare Collection app

Repeat this step for all apps you want to remove and you are done

remove all bundled apps:

Code:
Type the following command to remove all Modern apps from the system account:
Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online

Type the following command to remove all Modern apps from your current user account:
Get-AppXPackage | Remove-AppxPackage

Use it to remove all Metro apps from a specific user account. It's quite similar to the command above, just add -User username part. Substitute the user name of the account for which you wish to remove Modern apps in the command line in place of <username>:
Get-AppXPackage -User <username> | Remove-AppxPackage

Here's a command that will remove Metro apps for all user accounts:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

5. Disable Telemetry and Data Collection in Windows 10

on Fri 31 Jul 2015 - 12:10
 All its options are available in Win-I -> Settings -> Privacy - Feedback and Diagnostics

disable Telemetry and Data Collection in Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro

open regedit and go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection

If you do not have such a Registry key, then just create it.

There you need to create a new a 32-bit DWORD value named AllowTelemetry and set it to 0.

disable a couple of Windows services

Go to Services and Applications -> Services in the left pane. In the services list, disable the following services:

  • Diagnostics Tracking Service
  • dmwappushsvc

Win-I -> Settings -> Privacy - Feedback and Diagnostics -> is grayed 

This should prevent Windows 10 from spying on you.

"LogPixels"=dword:00000078 -> Scripture perhaps a little too big?


"LogPixels"=dword:00000040 -> better?

Windows 10 Anniversary Update might limit your Internet speed

on Sat 20 Aug 2016 - 11:13
netsh interface tcp show global



... wrote:In the command output, look for the line "Receive Window Auto-Tuning Level". If its value says "normal", this means the feature is enabled. If your Internet speed is notably slow, then you can try to disable it.
To disable Receive Window Auto-Tuning, type the following command:

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

... wrote:After that, test your Internet speed. If you were affected by the incorrect behavior of the feature, you should get improved network performance.
If your network performance does not change or becomes worse, you can re-enable Receive Window Auto-Tuning by typing the following command:

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

14. Active / Inactive Hosts

on Thu 1 Sep 2016 - 23:08
with batch file for me, run as admin

Active:
Code:
rename C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts# hosts

Inactive:
Code:
rename C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts hosts#

Updating the HOSTS file in Windows 10/8 - hosts.zip

Editors Note: in most cases a large HOSTS file (over 135 kb) tends to slow down the machine.
To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor"

  • Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes)
    Win8 users - Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services
  • Scroll down to "DNS Client", Right-click and select: Properties - click Stop [screenshot]
  • Click the drop-down arrow for "Startup type"
  • Select: Manual (recommended) or Disabled  click Apply/Ok and restart.
