GPO & reg edit do the same thing.
GPO is enforceable, they revert your reg edit.
Everyone can reg edit. Non-experts think GPO's are too much hassle.

If you don't need enforcement, take the reg edit a GPO creates and use it directly, bypassing the GPO.
Sir if somebody wants to tweak "Network List Manager Policies" can it be done via reg too :)

Everything is stored in the registry. The question is are you supposed to use a supported API to make changes (which get rolled into reg), or hack reg directly. The API should always be tried first, because it has logic rules. Unless you're absolutely sure of your reg edits.

Export your current user policy with LGPO, as parsed text. Append this to the output, and import back to user policy.
Yes, the entire hex array must be a single line :confused:

https://gms.inpadi.dk/wiki?p=yaa. LGPO - Local Group Policy Object Utility.html

LGPO.exe /parse /u C:\Windows\system32\GroupPolicy\User\Registry.pol > userpolicy.txt
[ Append your additions to userpolicy.txt ]

LGPO.exe /r userpolicy.txt /w C:\Windows\system32\GroupPolicy\User\Registry.pol
Garlin - maybe my misknownledge, but i don't see the advantage using third party tool here to accomplish what i want with a single reg file perfectly imported into NTL and doing the job. And thanks for all the efforts you put in to enlighten us all.

can anyone confirm whether remove the "Recommended" section from the START by GP working in the latest v22621.1 build or not?

creating a Pro Edu version from UUPD would do the trick or only the Edu version is required for this to remove the recommendation?
Is there any bypassed trick available to avoid such edition specific requirements in GPO?

hope nuhi will add the build 22621.1 support in the next NTLite build with this remove recommendation settings.

Each Windows edition is hard-coded to accept a different group of GPO policies. If your GPO doesn't apply, it's silently ignored.

Windows 11 SE is the only version where this GPO works. SE is a locked down, "no fun" EDU edition available from OEM partners (think Chromebook) and pointless to run since you're not allowed any Win32 or UWP apps.


It's not clear if MS will change its mind. You'll have to wait.
NTLite doesn't need this feature until one of the normal editions is supported.

That GPO to remove the recommendations is also working on the EDU & PRO EDU edition of W11.
Tested & confirmed.

Did they update the ADMX template in 22621? 22610 notes it applied to SE.
I haven't had a chance to look since my primary PC's still offline.

FYI

In GPO it's written that that policy is for SE, but it's working in Win11 Pro Edu & Edu as well

Even in a Win11 Home system, convert the license from Home to Edu, & still worked that way.

The entire Recommendation section removed & the whole START is usable for pinning apps icons

Build 22621.1 is signed off on May 20th 2022 & finalised as the 22H2 (SV2) RTM candidate,

Source: here

nuhi can we expect an updated build supporting this 22621? The latest version v8714 only supports up to 22616

What are the safest things to remove, as regards bloat?, or is it nothing now?

Using NTLite's templates, the safest ones (in order) are Privacy, Gaming, Lite.
Each component has a color code (green, blue, yellow, red) next to the checkbox.

The latest NTL latest version v2.3.5.8714 officially supports up to W11 Build 22616,
& I keep waiting for the next NTL version release that adds the support of 22621 but after 11th May, no updated version released till date, so asking

Did anyone try modding the latest W11 22H2 SV2 Build 22621.1 via the latest NTL v2.3.5.8714 & faced any issue or not?

since I installed W11 22621.1, there's this 'Pin to Quick Access' option in the right click context menu for every ICON which I believe wasn't there in the earlier version

Any tweak to get rid of this option from right-click context menu?

Edit: NVM, I got it, here's the reg tweak file if anyone needed,
nuhi suggesting implementing this in NTL future update

yeah, I googled & found the workaround after posting, (not from 11forum though, but I know Shawn, he's a very helpful guy) so quickly edited my earlier post within 5 minutes & shared the reg tweak as well

BTW, can you confirm whether that option (to remove 'Pin to Quick Access' from the context menu) is already present in NTL?
I believe it is not, so suggested & tagged nuhi to add that in future build.

regarding the changelog of the latest newly released NTLote v2.3.6.8792, it is mentioned here that
Settings: ‘Fullscreen optimizations’ option was missing since the Xbox detection changes

the fullscreen optimization option that used to there in under Win10 settings/display/advance graphics option, is missing since Win11,
not seeing the 'Fullscreen optimization' option in settings, so asking, whether MSFT deferred that option from Windows 11 settings, or what?

here's a SS for reference

UPDATE: found it, it was not there in the first Win11 21H2 build 22000.xx branch, but since build 22557 & onwards, MSFT re-introduced this & changed the name of this option from fullscreen optimization to optimization for windows games, which is located under

Windows Settings/System/Display/Graphics/Change default Grahics settings
12.png

& here's the Reg value for this option
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\UserGpuPreferences]
"DirectXUserGlobalSettings"="SwapEffectUpgradeEnable=1;"

Tagging nuhi so that he can consider adding this option in NTL's next update.
