    Tired of the graphical logon screen or the forced lock screen? Want a console instead? :p

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\TestHooks]
    "ConsoleMode"=dword:00000001

    Please explain, did you used the free utilities to do this or is this your own modification?

    I'm particularly interested if this is a special theme that requires tweaking Win10?

    If this is your mod I would love to include it in my Win10 total conversion mod, and you will be credited.

    New technology of DPI scaling in Windows 10 14986

    I found some interesting things in Windows 10 14986's MMC(the host process of Device Manager and Disk Management etc.). You all knows the MMC in 14986 is optimized for DPI Scaling. But it's not completely, and the most important thing is it's still DPI-unaware! How that works? Well, I already found it.

    In mmc.exe's built in manifest, there is a new declaration named "gdiScaling". This new option could make some old win32 program partially support DPI Scale.

    Yes, "Partially", seems it only support specific win32 Text API.

    I wrote a simple win32 program which uses TextOut, DrawText and ExtTextOut API to render text and tried to figure out which API will take effect. Unfortunately, I didn't get the expected result. And actually I'm not familiar with win32 programming.

    So, I decided to use some other win32 program to do the test and succeeded!

    First, I need to do registry hack to enable windows prefer to load external manifest file.
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide]
    "PreferExternalManifest"=dword:00000001
    
    Then, I choose CPU-Z to do this test. So create a file with the following content named "cpuz_x64.exe.manifest"(same as the program's file name including .exe extension and use .manifest extension):

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0" xmlns:asmv3="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3" >
    <asmv3:application>
       <asmv3:windowsSettings>
            <dpiAware xmlns="h t t p://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2005/WindowsSettings">false</dpiAware>
            <gdiScaling xmlns="h t t p://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2017/WindowsSettings">true</gdiScaling>
      </asmv3:windowsSettings>
    </asmv3:application>
    </assembly>
    
    Note: As I don't have the permission to post links, So, you need to remove those spaces in "h t t p".

    Finally, Save this file along with the program.After these done. Run the cpuz_x64.exe. It will popup an error message. But you can ignore it and continue. And here is the screenshot of the effect(clearly font rendering at DPI 200%):cool::
    CPU-Z EN GDI Scale.png


    So, this is the new technology of DPI scaling in Windows 10 14986, you can try to use this to improve some old win32 program's DPI Scaling effect. But notice, this technology is not perfect, it only support some program. And, some language may has rendering problem(for example, Chinese edition of CPU-Z). If this manifest not work for the program, you can just remove the manifest file.

    Here is a finding I find totally weird for an OS that is to be at this point in it maturity. I was backing up over the holidays when one of my internal drives crashed, it was a 3 TB data drive and during copy it just froze up. Rebooted only to find that windows 10 would no longer boot on the system SSD drive. I had to unplug the defective data drive in order for the system drive to boot. The data drive was dead but I could not diagnose this in windows 10 since the system would not boot with it attached. Now that is something real special and should help a system be resilient. Ended up using testdisk to retrieve the raw data I needed after plugging it in through a USB enclosure. Top notch M$.

    Regards
