    Script is editable.... to suit your own needs (open with Notepad++, read through script and change options you dont require)
    Code:
    :: - Download and integrate updates up to November 2023
        set IntegrateUpdates=1     <---- change to 0

    After a clean installation of Slimdown10 and latest Firefox ESR, its sadly not possible to log into my firefox account.
    My google research told me that I have to activate in about:config the identity.fxaccounts.enabled entry, which is sadly locked. Any idea how I can unlock it?
    Thx

    Dig around and modify or delete the whole registry section about (same goes for Thunderbird/Chrome/Chromium if you use it):
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\
    Wkeller (AKA @Deleted Member) added a bunch of "over-the top" in my opinion, browser "hijacking" behavior in the latter versions of Slimdown10. "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\***" is where you undo it, if not in the script before making the ISO. Thankfully, Wkeller left us with a pretty solid script before leaving. With Windows 10 on it's last leg and all, this script with a few of our own tweaks should last the rest of its life, even without continued development.

    Hello, sharing my project with you is not a problem. But will it be suitable for you? I have Windows 11 IoT Enterprise LTSC [22631.3235] X64 RU.
    Or what do you mean?

    What/Where is your project?

    @ all users who use the script for Windows 11 or unsupported Windows 10 Builds
    (this script is officially supported for Windows 10 22H2 or LTSC 2021)
    for use on Windows 11 as @meilenstein explained here:
    Change line 283 from
    Code:
     "%DISM%" /English /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:"%InstallWIMfile%" /Index:%%i | findstr /l /i /c:"Name :" | findstr /l /i /c:"Windows 10" >nul 2>&1 || set checkErrors=1
    
    to
    Code:
     "%DISM%" /English /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:"%InstallWIMfile%" /Index:%%i | findstr /l /i /c:"Name :" | findstr /l /i /c:"Windows 11" >nul 2>&1 || set checkErrors=1
    
    And for other Windows Builds then 22H2 or 21H1, also have a look at lines 2176 - 2190 and change it to your needs, especially:
    Code:
    if "%IsLTSC%"=="0" (
     Reg add "HKLM\TK_SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "ProductVersion" /t REG_SZ /d "Windows 10" /f >nul
     Reg add "HKLM\TK_SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "TargetReleaseVersion" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f >nul
     Reg add "HKLM\TK_SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "TargetReleaseVersionInfo" /t REG_SZ /d "22H2" /f >nul
    )
    if not "%IsLTSC%"=="0" (
     Reg add "HKLM\TK_SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "ProductVersion" /t REG_SZ /d "Windows 10" /f >nul
     Reg add "HKLM\TK_SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "TargetReleaseVersion" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f >nul
     Reg add "HKLM\TK_SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "TargetReleaseVersionInfo" /t REG_SZ /d "21H2" /f >nul
    )
    
    P.s.
    I'm trying to modify Slimdown10, with more Options to choose what to disable and maybe support for Windows 11 and other Windows 10 Builds. But don't except it to be finished ever, i'm poor beginner in scripting and i do it just for fun! :)

    Hi, unfortunately the author of Slimdown10 has left this thread. I also tried it on Win 11 - not bad. Of course, the program itself is not perfect and there are ways to improve it. But for this you need to have a lot of free time and relevant experience in writing such scripts. Perhaps someone from experienced users will take on this very useful and interesting topic, but there is no one willing to do it yet, unfortunately.

    p.s. I really hope that if your Simdown experiment is successful, you will share it with us.

    Well so with Simdown there everything is clear and everything works fine on both Win10 and Win11, checked. I was asking about the script you gave a link to. Tried it, constant command line overload, and I can't get out of it. Only rebooting the PC helps.
    ====================================================================================
    By the way, someone can tell me - the Slimdown script integrates updates:
    1. KB5031539 - Update Stack Maintenance
    2. KB5012170 - Security update for Secure Boot
    3. KB5011048 - .NET Framework 4.8.1
    The script was written a long time ago and probably the updates for version 23H2 should be applied in the script in some other way - which ones?
