    Can we make our device be detected as a Tablet instead of phone? Most apps revert to vertical layout instead of horizontal.

    I don't think i will ever use amazon app for installing or using apk files. it looks like money trap and useless. i will just sideload apk's i want to use if i ever want to.

    so no regions or anything for me. i would use google play store but seems unnecessary too i can just sideload apks.

    Thanks, although as mentioned in previous couple of posts, never use the store and just sideload apk's. Cheers though. :good3:

    If you could do everything via REG files, WHY did YOU don't do that?

    you just don't get it, do you? the things you are talking about and the software you give can be done via reg files.

    i am not talking about what you think. look at the screenshot and where its coming from. the thing i am asking the screenshot i shared is not configurable via grouppolicy or any batchfile or any reg file. it is encodded in system dll files. so i am looking for completely different thing.

    you should have understood when i say "taskbar RIGHT CLICK context menu OPTIONS" not taskbar, not taskbar icons, not right click context menu on desktop or any other place"

    AFAIK, the Right Click Menus all over in Windows working on the same level/functions, etc. and that of the Taskbar isn't different from that! The user needed adjustments would need similar actions, if possible(!), for any upcoming Right-Click Menu.

    That said, to get what you want, find out how to edit and change the contents of Right-Click Menus in general, which would also apply to the Right-Click Menu of the Taskbar.

    And, I not was giving any software to you, I just mentioned which could maybe be used for to do such work, and also applied the link to from where it could be downloaded.

    Now I regret that I was trying to help, will not happen again, to you!

    FYI Guys

    if you are running VPN on your windows
    WSA won't be access to internet, that because VPN applications blocking local network access, so you need to allow that through your VPN application.

    yes i know that project, but it doesn't help me, its also has so much depencies not an easy solution for people who need it's settings too. i would not use it.

    also wrote to his author but didn't got any repy
    then i talked to tihiy and he added policy support for startallback so when buttons are disabled by policy/reg context settings are also removed.

    so its better than nothing.

    How to solve?
    When using a VPN the login screen doesn't show up, when not using I can login normally but the store isn't available in my country.

    Windows Subsystem for Android doesn't support Google Play Services or the Google Play Store. It uses Amazon's Appstore.

    Any app that relies on Google Play Services won't run.
