    Ive been testing some Custom Win10 iso's i made with the MSMG tool kit and have had great results
    Faster boot up, no Defender, no Edge...no extra bull.
    Question: Has anyone else made custom striped down (streamlined) versions of win 10 ?

    If so what are your experiences. long term. I used the lastest version with update 17763.134
    if interested in can upload them for sharing and testing.

    What did you do, using MSMG Toolkit, to have faster boot time?:thinking:

    Many threads are about chopping these days.

    in the options to remove , i pretty much removed Everything that loads windows up. Apps...etc. My boot time on my pc went from 8sec to just under 4....using Samsung EVO SSD. Gigbyte Brix i5 (red).
    i run games so i dont need extra crap that comes with windows. The install was so clean it only showed 3 items in the startup with Autoruns menu. and droped alot ALOT of processes in the background.
    im quite impressed. i installed games and other utility programs with ease. Ive been tinkering with that kit for a while now...i just dont see alot of talk about it...you would think eveyone would do it for a Super clean install.
    Ill extract the install.wim from a clean MS ISO then build from there.

    A clean untouched install will be able to boot just as fast on a SSD.

    Dropping processes from ram will only result in higher load times when the processes have to be started.

    Chopping mostly leads to unstable, not correctly functioning installs, maybe not now, but at sometime it will happen.

    interesting...ill have to keep an eye on that. I just got tired of Edge running in the background for no apparent reasong eating up ram....candy crush loading up mysteriously in the menu....etc.
    the options menu in MSMG takes out that junk. so im happy...never use any other crap was on that list so...yea...bloat code and apps...gone.

    Where did you see Edge running in the background and what amount of ram it ate (not seeing edge running nor any ram used by it, when it isn't started by me)
    Candy crush in the start menu is hardly a mystery nor using system resources when not run.

    In the processes menu Taskmanager. funny thing is i never opened edge. just once in a while i see it running usng 80+ mb ram. i use vivaldi and firefox...
    as for candy crush...im OCD i see it it bothers me. i like a clean menu. hate having to Uninstall and then poof there it is...day or so later.
    you cant even delete them without a force delete program from the c\windows sysapps location, without modifying the privileges....
    Stuff that is never used should be able to be removed via system or other....i never understood why MS insterted adware to make u buy...Onenote..etc...
    all that stuff i never touch....not to mention the telemetry ...radio back my info....no no.. lol
    so i set out on a search to clean that out....after reading and reading...i chose to use that toolkit. didnt seem to Invasive to the system files. via reading up on each
    menu item...
    what method have you used? im curio. Uploading my iso to Gdrive now. ill post it for testing in Virtualbox.

    so far its been stable for me. vivaldi is one of those obscure web browsers....i like being different lol

    i doubt many will even attempt extracting the wim file....its command line driven.
    then u have to use the tool kit menus ...very dos ish....in functionality.
    dunno..just was project seemed to work for me.
    i like all input...curious if anyone has done it and shared...

    Sadly we now all about vivaldi;):D

    Btw, sharing homebrew iso's is not allowed here at MDL.

    That's the first thing to do, delete edge/defender/ and everything store.
    With LTSC

    Please, tell us how to delete "everything store" on LTSC, which doesn't even have store....

    A bit off topic but what's the problem with Vivaldi ? Used if few times as a secondary browser on previous windows builds and it seemed ok.

    Yes, the store of the context menu of LTSC can not be deleted.
    I mean, I used to streamline the system and delete all the online applications, but now I use LTSC myself.
    But have to delete those things from defender/onedirve.

    FYI MSMG updated the Toolkit to v9.0.
