 Are all worth a look see and book-marking xx

 

Plus try this some will love it !!!

 

 Enable Oak Mode in Windows 10  ( Oak lol , you can call it what you like )

 

 1.Make sure your system account has administrative privileges

 

 2.Right-click on the Windows 10 desktop and choose New > Folder

 

 3.Name the folder: Oak ( or own name ) Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and hit enter/return to make it stick

 

 4. That's it. Now when you open that folder, you can see around 40 different settings, including Devices and Printers, Credential Manager,

 Indexing, etc. Some variations exist depending if you have a Home or Pro version and different hardware.

 

Here are the categories of tools you’ll find in Oak Mode:

 

Administrative Tools

AutoPlay

Backup and Restore

Color Management

Credential Manager

Date and Time

Devices and Printers

Ease of Access Center

File Explorer Options

File History

Fonts

Indexing Options

Infrared

Internet Options

Keyboard

Speech Recognition

Storage Spaces

Sync Center

System

Tablet PC Settings

Taskbar and Navigation

Troubleshooting

User Accounts

Windows Defender Firewall

Windows Mobility Center

Work Folders

 

Each of these categories contains any number of tools and might even be divided into further subcategories, meaning that you’re likely to find nearly anything you’re looking for.
