    Customize Menu
    Import Custom StartMenu Layout from XML File

    Note: This will blank your StartMenu, sometimes don't work for me.


    But in CustomToolkit
    For W11 I put a scheme that implements the replacement of startmenu.bin

    With several combination options for display in the Start menu.

    "DefaultStartMenuLayout.bin" Has only pinned shortcuts for non-removables. File Explorer and Settings.
    That is why I selected it as Default.

    1. Choose any file within Templates folder;

    2. Copy it to Main ".\Bin\StartMenuLayoutBIN" folder;

    3. Rename it to "CustomStartMenuLayout.bin".

    Note: If the file "CustomStartMenuLayout.bin" is present, the file "DefaultStartMenuLayout.bin" will be ignored.


    You can simply create your template (adding, removing and arranging the order of the pinned shortcuts) directly in your Start Menu.

    When your customization is ready, copy the "start.bin" file that was instantly overwritten, into the folder "%LocalAppdata%%\PackagesMicrosoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState".
    And put the newly generated "start.bin" renamed as "CustomStartMenuLayout.bin" into the ".\Bin\StartMenuLayoutBIN" folder.


    .\Toolkit\Bin\StartMenuLayoutBIN\Templates
    DefaultStartMenuLayout FileExplorer Settings [DEF4132D].bin
    start empty [9846A051].bin
    start FileExplorer IExplorer MsEdge MsStore [8A11646C].bin
    start FileExplorer MsEdge MsStore [1EF1857D].bin
    start FileExplorer MsEdge [2BBD8C33].bin
    start FileExplorer MsStore [A34D61BB].bin
    start FileExplorer UWPCalc [305193CB].bin
    start FileExplorer Win32Calc UWPCalc [DD286358].bin
    start FileExplorer Win32Calc [7FC309BA].bin
    start FileExplorer [0D17D92F].bin

    1. In CustomToolkit package, Choose any file within ".\Bin\StartMenuLayoutBIN\Templates" folder;

    2. Rename to start.bin

    3. Copy and replace it to Main "%LocalAppdata%\PackagesMicrosoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState" folder;

    4. Restart.

    You can change the start menu manually. Then enter the item 4 folder and save your personalized start.bin.
    When you change your menu Start.bin is saved automatically.

    When you start the system after a clean installation the icons that appear are just suggestions. They will only be installed through the store if you click.
    After a few minutes or hours, these recommendations icons will disappear.

    It seems to me that @hiepbg is primarily interested not in the personalization of the Start menu, but in the need to get rid of self-installing unwanted applications.

    That is, in this case, you can apply the setting: [4] Customize -> [8] Apply Tweaks -> [В] Disable Automatic Download and Install of 3rd Party Apps

    And remove the ContentDeliveryManager component responsible for installing them.

    And of course it will get rid of unwanted auto-installation of Teams, if it is also needed: [4] Customize -> [8] Apply Tweaks -> [C] Disable Automatic Download and Install of Microsoft Teams App

    @MSMG, the scripts for CAB and MSU file downloads have been updated. Please, replace those obsolete ones who are present in the Packs folder in the Toolkit package.
    Take a look at the launching code by the nSudo. And, I believe we have to put Genicsatrt and Start.cmd back, for those who will have problems.
    It is difficult, initially, people get used to a new way of doing things. I suggest it is good to keep the 2 options.

    I am using for 19044.1766 in daily use, I am not having problems with direct execution of Toolkit or CustomToolkit.

    But I decided to give more attention to this code based on what I prepared for the Context Menu for "Run As Trusted Installer by nSudo and PowerRun". Script "RunAs-TrustedInstaller_AutoDownload.cmd" within the Custom Toolkit package.
    I put today, in this script a Fix for Native "Run As Administrator" who corrects WorkingDirectory. This causes many errors in scripts that do not have a CD /D "%~dp0" as a precaution.

    In new code there are 2 options for the nSudo and the same options for the "MinSudo" of "NanaRun" and "PowerRun" if you want to put in the Bin folder.
    Code:
    @echo OFF
    
    if exist "%SystemROOT%\SysWOW64" (set "HostArchitecture=x64") else (set "HostArchitecture=x86")
    
    ::===================================================================

    @MSMG
    is there a reason as to why component removal is disabled for
    - Windows 7,8.1,10 v1507/v1511/v1607/v1703/v1709/v1803?
    would it be possible to restore it?
    found that in the readme.
