      FYI, that regkey doesn’t work any more, guaranteed on W10!
      Been there, done that, and disposed of it a while back.
      I get the feeling that after next month, chromium based edge will be anchored deeper into W10 with the upcoming IE11 browser neuter next month.

    • One may find that once all the updates are done, an old IE11 update appears, can’t remember the kb but MSFT broke metadata/ supersedence or something with that kb and never fixed it…Just done a fresh install of Win7 Pro for offline use only up to kb4539601 (SMQR)

      Surprised PearOS wasn’t mentioned (Linux based apple iOS clone)
      GUI was aesthetically pleasing, well arranged and intuitive even for children…
      until a cease and desist was issued.

      Looks like someone else has revived it:

      When I was in pursuit of faster everything for gaming, the motherboard choice was the primary derestricted foundation as an overclocker. Once RAM, CPU, Fans, heatsink and storage was assembled, I’d inspect every aspect of the BIOS with manual at hand and adjust accordingly. So yes, enthusiasts ‘should’ pick this up. Those days are long gone….when decent game consoles appeared on the scene.

      Homeusers, why even contemplate moving to apple when Linux distro’s offer alternatives for hardware below the Win11 threshold, which in my mind IS perfectly suited for home use. After all, you don’t need a ferarri to drive to work when any make of car will provide the necessary.

      No patch issues, free (donations gratefully accepted by developers), secure and stress free. Yes, it’s a learning curve for some more than others without the fruity financial outlay (that you may not like anyway!)
      You can still use older OoS Windows offline if and when required.
      If you’re retired with time to spare, that’s a frugal means to an end where you can save for something more enjoyable outwith computing, not only that but, keeping an active learning mind helps your overall health.

      Then, if you’re not entirely satisfied with Linux distro’s, get a fruity machine, worth a try before you buy IMO
      I’d recommend Linux Mint for starters…YMMV

      Do you have Microsoft Store set to automatically update?

      Doesn’t make any difference of late on W10 22H2, it’s pushed anyway but, not if there’s no edge there in the first place 😉

    • in reply to: Desktop icons take long time to appear #2524215

      @NeilM, do you by chance use WinAeroTweaker?
      If so, go to the setting where the ‘shortcut arrow’ tweak is displayed with options and set it to default (irrespective of whether tweaked or not)
      Restart the device to update and your desktop icons should return to normal at a normal speed. Had this happen on a couple of Win7 devices in the past.
