        Recently revisited Winaero Tweaker to find that they have introduced some new tweaks and enhancements that seem very useful for those who use Windows 10.

        Unwanted Windows 10 Updates
        This release comes with improvements which allow the app to reliably disable updates and annoying forced reboots in Windows 10.

        Backup and Restore Start Menu Layout
        Another frequently requested feature. It is finally implemented in the app, so you can quickly backup and restore the appearance of your Start menu in Windows 10 with a couple of clicks

        Import/Export of Bookmarks
        It was another popular feature request. Now it is implemented. The Import/export wizard of Winaero Tweaker allows you to export and import your bookmarks the same way you export/import the tweaks.

        These were my top picks and there’s more here:

        Any chance that backup of Start Menu includes the Classic Start configuration I now have?

          Different program AND Classic Start (based on Classic Shell/ Open-Shell) has it’s own backup configuration 🙂

        I like the one where it fixes 1803 to show your other computers on the network. I don’t have 1803 yet but I know it will be forced at some point.

        Don't take yourself so seriously, no one else does 🙂

        For some strange reason, Winaero kills my media streaming.  I’ve tested this thoroughly.  I don’t even have to make a single tweak in the program.  Just installing it immediately kills my media streaming.
