    I can remember a pc i had that had two GF 7300 pci-ex cards and that setup would only work on a certain nvidia driver that came with the pair any other even same version would ignore the sli and just show one card.

    Pity i not got that pc now as it would be useful now!

    In which context:

    Not work on a specific os?
    Or for a new option?

    If for win 10/11, certain shell/explorer/control panel shortcuts are being systematically removed by m$ to be restored in other ways in the settings app.

    There is a 'system properties' option on the admin tools context menu for thispc/computer.

    Sorry if i have missed what you mean, been a busy night and tiredness taking over.

    *edit*
    Explorer.exe shell:::{BB06C0E4-D293-4f75-8A90-CB05B6477EEE} == 'Basic System Information' screen, that works on pre 20h2 win builds, but on later w10 builds m$ have appeared to disable or remove its operation.

    Fixed for MRP 142 :)

    Had another variable if a build was over 20h1 it would set the option as No...

    It can be adjusted again later when m$ remove that shortcut 'feature'. :)

    * Edit *
    No longer works for builds above 22000 as it just goes to settings>about page, so will disable again if build above 22000 is detected.

    Beta Mrp v142, (above post log), using the updated dmi detection looks like it operative. :)

    MRP v142 is progressing :)

    Testing a new option for win 10/11 will see if it works first before i mention it in the project tweaks section, may be useful to many as i personally find it useful as the new way m$ done this change is annoying.

    ** Edit **
    Appears to work :)

    On later builds of Windows 10 the SearchBox in Explorer windows has been changed in how it works, now when you type a search item you then have to press Enter or the [->] arrow to make it do the search.

    This new MRP option/tweak reverts the SearchBox's method back to how it used to be, when you type anything the search instantly begins, plus it can also remember previous searches and allow you to clean up those old entries.

    The new method m$ uses is clunky at best and buggy too because you cant clean up old entries, if it even remembers them!

    I personally find the new method that m$ uses in the GUI is a step backwards, plus just like in Win 11 everything seems to need more actions to perform a simple task..

    Hopefully someone will find this option useful too. :)

    Just hope it will still work after any later Updates/OS upgrades!

    I had this tweak on my PC's for ages but when i added into MRP a couple of months ago it would not work and i gave up and removed the option entirely. Looking at the code again the other day, i found i had put a wrong number in the code :oops: - if i had copy/pasted the code that worked it would of been OK but i had wrote it in manually...

    Just goes to show sometimes copy/paste works as intended!! :D

    I added SetupComplete.cmd to fixed script doesn't run on LTSC 2021, but somehow doesn't work on IoT LTSC 2021

    <ISO DIR>\sources\$OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts\SetupComplete.cmd
    Code:
    @echo off
    net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited
    call %WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts\OOBE.cmd
    del /q /f "%0"

    Oobe/setupcomplete scripts not work on iot ltsc as far as i know.

    Oobe.cmd in mrp will not run under setupcomplete either if that what you mean.
