    LOL that's literally what the link I posted says, except it was starting with 1703. ;)

    It also says that RAM usage may go up with 500 MB, but for me it's 100 MB.

    I know that feeling! Don't have it anymore though.

    I remember the days of using Nlite and NTlite and similar, tweaking everything from W2000 to some of the W10 releases, but now I won't bother anymore. With maybe ten new ISO's coming every year (6 ISO's for 1809 alone) they get outdated so fast. I just disable/uninstall/block features after installing, that's enough for me.
    I haven't been hunting services à la Black Viper for years, it's pointless to me, I only occasionally change the setting some specific one.

    Minimize RAM usage, installing size, and disabling/uninstalling/blocking features and apps is really great to do if you have NOTHING ELSE TO DO. I would know, I got my W7 installation down to 1.3 GB, I'm an idiot haha.

    A clean Win10 1903 boot for me with Throttle Stop, Process Lasso, Logitech, Nord, Search Everything, Waves Maxx audio driver BS, and Java updater / miscellaneous yields around 119 processes iirc. I'm still in the process of weeding out excess services since taking the 1903 update though. I discovered in the most annoying way that "Connected Devices Platform" can't be disabled without breaking all of my Windows 10 UWP apps (ie: the new Win10 Photo Viewer).

    Disabling that service will disable Task View on all desktop incl. virtual desktops.

    Thanks @Vasudev that is good to know. I turned it back on for the sake of having the default Win10 Photo Viewer even though I plan to try some 3rd party apps to fill that role in the future. I have around 250 gigs of personal pics and videos I have accumulated over the years that I have been working on de-duplicating, thinning out, and organizing so I can actually create some projects (home videos, collages, etc) using all of my media rather than just letting it all sit doing nothing.

    Okay, I finally finished weeding services with no obvious loss in functionality. My C7 rates went up quite a bit for both core (98% - 99+%) and package (85+%). My final process count is less than 100. The lowest process count I've seen was 91. I'm happy with the results. My laptop is ready for school now and will sip battery juice accordingly. (Not to mention performance is up and temps are down.) Now if only I could get back all the time and sanity it costs me to go through this process every time there is a major update. -_-

    None say you have to jump on the new and Fancy Crippled once it's thrown out from the Moron HQ:)

    I went straight from 1803 to 1903 mainly for the stock dark theme functionality to supplement my custom dark theme I like to run since my custom dark theme causes readability issues with some applications. Now I can simply jump between themes with a click of the mouse when necessary and not have to deal with being blinded by file explorer windows at night. I figured I could probably use security updates too after not updating for a year or so.
