    Yep, I'd love to have this also, but I don't think it is possible without third party software or changing back to the classic start completely... So, probs gotta choose one - pretty new digs or comfy old pajamas.. ^_^

    Pl cross check boot wim methodology before doing any change & why apply autounattend markup language file to boot wim as you already posted copy paste autounattend to root of iso or Unattend to panther directory of install wim "index to install" Windows\Panther directory.
    Cross Check difference between autounattend & unatttend scenarios too.
    only oobe & specialize is covered under unattend but autounattend is full source full unattend markup language file.

    Autounattend.xml in root of iso should be functional. I have, however, run into some exceptional situations where it wasn't picked up (this was during Win7 era and I think it had to do with boot drive order and drivers installing for card readers, etc) and I had a build folder where I did have it in boot.wim also (setup index) and that solved that particular issue.

    From a note that I gleaned from @Enthousiast... if I remember correctly
    Code:
    ::  NB1   For WU upgrades
    ::        Labconfig entries must be placed in boot.wim Index 2 (winre.wim)
    
    EDIT: an afterthought...
    Bypass options, issues.. in my opinion, shouldn't be entertained in this thread..
    as I understand it, this thread is about tweaking, modifying an already installed system

    there are already a few created threads that are designed to cover this particular issue

    Most notably:
    Windows 11 Setup TPM Bypass - the many ways... Title says it all

    How to Install Windows 11 without TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot

    win11 requires TPM 2.0, is this a deal breaker?

    Win 11 Boot And Upgrade FiX KiT v2.0... mentioned this last, as don't want to encourage thread hijacking


    Personally... I don't even think that 3rd party solutions (unless open source) should be referenced here... ie. Start11, StarAllBack

    Winre.wim doesn't need them, i can access all without the fixes.

    Is there a way to disable Teams from running in systray via registry or some command? I don't want to remove Teams, and I'm not talking about the taskbar pinned item. I just want to keep it from running in systray (or as a process at all). I've captured various reg entries in relation to this but I can't seem to automate it as part of the images and subsequent installs.

    EDIT: The regs I captured did appear to work, but only after reboot.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\BackgroundAccessApplications\MicrosoftTeams_8wekyb3d8bbwe]
    "DisabledByUser"=dword:00000001
    "Disabled"=dword:00000001

    Hello.
    How can I add the Snipping Tool to the desktop context menu ?
    This is not working.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\SnippingTool]
    @=""
    "icon"="SnippingTool.exe"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\SnippingTool\command]
    @="SnippingTool.exe"

    Snipping Tool alternative method for Windows 11. Change the wording in Green for your own language/spelling.

    Code:
    
     REM Place 'Snipping Tool' on the desktop context menu - Windows 11. 
     reg add "HKCR\DesktopBackground\Shell\SnippingTool" /v "MUIVerb" /t REG_SZ /d "Snipping Tool" /f >NUL 2>&1
     reg add "HKCR\DesktopBackground\Shell\SnippingTool" /v "Icon" /t REG_SZ /d "%SystemRoot%\System32\shell32.dll,259" /f >NUL 2>&1
     reg add "HKCR\DesktopBackground\Shell\SnippingTool" /v "Position" /t REG_SZ /d "Middle" /f >NUL 2>&1
     reg add "HKCR\DesktopBackground\Shell\SnippingTool\command" /ve /t REG_SZ /d "explorer.exe ms-screenclip:" /f >NUL 2>&1

    The classic Snipping Tool has been removed and the modern App has been redesigned with classic look and feel in Windows 11
