    1. Depends which OS build you're optimizing. Look at my signature.
    • post #992 - Resources to help design Windows Blacklists (remove) and Whitelists (keep)
    • see note 3: Windows Builds 21390 and later move SecHealthUI (Defender) from System apps to provisional UWP appx
    Meaning that you want to keep System app SecHealthUI (Defender) in builds earlier than 21390 and keep provisional UWP appx SecHealthUI (Defender) in builds after 21390.

    2. Up to now, "no" for features/capabilities/services. 99.9% *No* for app reversion. There were some rare reports of System apps getting re-activated. Seems to no longer be an issue and is reported to never happen if you update using W10UI. Also., there is an 'emergency" online System apps removal solution made by BAU. See https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...n-windows-10-version-1809.78576/#post-1634306

    {Edit} I totally agree with @drew84 's reply about shifting goal posts and reading through this thread's content. At least look over the last 20 pages or so.

    Will the 4.0.1.9 changes from DrEmpiricism be added to @gdeliana's fork?

    I'm probably missing something significant in the latest OO4019 update, but if you want to keep using gdeliana's version then here is the only significant improvement I could find:
    Additional Tweaks 4019 update.reg
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ; Add Advanced User Accounts to the Control Panel
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}]
    @="User Accounts (Advanced)"
    "InfoTip"="Opens netplwiz.exe"
    "System.ControlPanel.Category"="9"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\DefaultIcon]
    @="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\netplwiz.exe"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\Shell\Open\command]
    @="netplwiz.exe"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}]
    @="Advanced User Accounts"

    I noticed that the "Search" window pop up in the middle of screen unlike the one in original where it stays at bottom left on clicking the Search button on taskbar. I want to keep it like the original, what shall I remove from the OO script?

    re-written with the more reliable logic of DIR2ISO snippet by yours truly ;)
    guess I should also add support for the lamer "rolling release" powershell
    (tho it's generally a bad idea to run such scripts in 6+ instead of the native clr one - even under windows 11)

    Yes its about W11 atm. But is also about the future of modding windows. I feel like Microsoft is pulling too much the strings with their antivirus. Its becoming more and more difficult to remove it.

    Is it possible to add OneDrive to LTSC 2019?
    I´ve read it´s not included or at least functional.
