    Hey peeps just need to some help with a few things i can't figure out after searching and playing around.

    1) With the Spring update whats the reg tweak to unpin store from the start menu
    2) The Reg tweak to change my desktop icon sizes to small and arrange by type
    3) Enable display of This Pc and User folers on Desktop
    4) Set Apps screen to sort by category by default

    Aslo after removing themes and everything my desktop back ground is just black but i have a desktop wallpaper added but how do i get windows to switch to the wallpaper with a reg tweak as well.

    ok i think i've found the keys but i assume this part changes with each user/install (S-1-5-21-3540963908-4003436884-2165975820-1001)

    So how would i modify it or script it to apply for each user and install?

    Code:
    ;Taskbar position

    Help?

    Is there like a command line way or something to work on HKEY_USERS keys?
