    Thank you everyone for contributing. Appreciating it. Btw, I'm not sure if everything in the list is in portable since I don't run Windows at the moment and can't check?

    Recommend you get used to backups if you using windows, they will get you out of allsorts of trouble and save you having to reinstall.

    I understand that but if you know what you do then it is not needed. I am curious if Blackbird app has the feature to not make any backups or is it a must?

    Creating a backup is optional and it stores the backup file in the same folder as the executable. And i worked that out all by myself too.

    Read the manual? :laie:

    Blackbird break things then restoring the "backup" does not fix them. In my case the start menu stopped working completely. I know someone will say, "I been using it forever and never had any problems"...and to that I say, OK, knock yourself out then...I tried to warn you.

    So, I am not using any of this stuff. I'll just run LTSB and tweak as best I can with GPEDIT, Task Scheduler, etc. If it gets to the point that doesn't work...it will be time for a full on switch to Linux. F#@$ it.
