    I don't think the OS has the 'Summer time' versions as i did a check of TZUtil and even powershell's Get-TimeZone -ListAvailable none had Summer Time in the list..

    But MRP/QT will show if Summer Time +1hr is in operation :)

    I see there are some options ignored by MRP if it detects the build used for installing as being "Insider". That's very unfortunate, as I purposely use earlier Win11 builds for installation and update them directly after Setup. Is there any way to override that? The past Win11 Insider builds are not really Insider any more.

    It is possible to have a override option, will have to see which ones are ignored as it been a while.

    I know the hide insider page from settings and the feedback setting are two that are ignored. Plus specific Apps are not removed aka the Feedback hub.

    If you know of some of the others ignored please let me know.

    *EDIT*
    Have added a special option in MRP v141 now to allow those options that was auto disabled when an Insider/Preview build was detected, i can't guarantee it will un-disable them all as the auto-disable bit is quite extensive but it should now allow the majority. (I Hope!)

    Had a request to add 'Task Manager' to the desktop right-click menu for windows 11.

    Plus it should be 'auto translated' - unlike other methods about :p ;)

    Will add that code/option into v141 :)

    When win 11 is installed the registry still has windows 10 showing in the productname/version area.

    On mrp v141 as shown in the above post it will now show 11 instead. This will also show the same change for v118 of the qt too.

    M$ have not yet changed that area in the registry for some reason so most utilities will still show 10.

    Note the Mrp/qt does not change the actual registry they just check for the build number and then substitute the 10 for 11 in the log results so it looks correct.

    It is a simple check used, but rare it could show 1111 or 1011 by mistake in the log.

    Edit: shouldve read post, lol

    Is that just rightclick desktop and not taskbar?

    Edit2: MRP Slim start/taskbar doesnt remove MS Teams in W11

    Right-Click the Desktop ct menu. Not on taskbar as unable to work out how that new Taskbar works yet.

    OEM's.7z only required if you wish to brand/add logos etc. MRP will do everything else but brand if that file is missing or not correct in some way. It will be just be the standard windows default branding used.

    Teams stuff on Taskbar left overs etc - Cant work out how it all works fully on w11 yet.

    Coo, thanks:)

    I cant sysprep W11 without using having "stop auto updating store apps" for some reason so this really helped out.

    The 'stop auto updating store apps' tweak attempts to prevent most of the apps coming back when they are removed in MRP, not always sadly, as m$ really push hard for that s**t to re-appear! :(

    *Added*
    That may not ever be a fully operative adventure as m$ really want to make you use the Store... Look at some newer drivers, ( Nvidia and Realtek -- looking at you pair! ), making the user have to use/install a UWP App to adjust the settings etc...

    Only a few apps are left alone, Store being one as for some odd reason it is required for some of the newer drivers or some will want to re-install it later anyway.

    Part of the XBox app is left behind to prevent problems later.

    Basically anything else is removed - if it can be done :)

    To totally remove apps etc there are other tools to do it on the WIM itself, but that is up to the individual in what they are comfortable with. MRP just does a simple removal using powershell , i not use DISM as it a bit clumsy for my liking and can cause weird results if not done properly especially via OOBE as you cant see anything onscreen.

    Not sure if it is possible to clear all pinned apps on win 11 as there seems to be a minimum of x amount of apps that have to be on the start menu etc, if below that amount m$ will just dump random, err i mean place, items on it to make up the short fall.
