    There is a massive sticky thread at the very top of this forum.

    That's a how to...I am asking what it looks like. As in, what should be on the computer and what shouldn't be.

    There's too much to type in a post to be honest, you'll get pop ups, ads, every key stroke you type will be sent to Microsoft, Microsoft will conduct expirments on your laptop behind your back and you will notice your computer slow down (seriously), the Microsoft Store will install random games for you that it thinks you may like like Candy Saga Crush and Mickey Mouse from Disney, and the Start menu looks like an absolute joke.

    Here's the Windows 10 stock start menu:

    Here is the tweaked Ultra Male Windows 10:

    You will see how it looks like stock when you get your computer and you will see how it will get transformed into something useable (ie. like a freakin' computer not a joke tablet with Mickey Mouse and Disney cartoons and ads) when I am with you on TeamViewer for tweaking your laptop.

    Yeah that's kind of what I thought. I got my laptop today, but I didn't get a clean install and I am missing the 32GB flash drive with the back-up.

    BTW...this laptop is a hell of a lot more amazing than I had previously thought. It's insane.

    Let me know when you are free for the tweaks, I know you are busy so just whenever you're available. I thought about tagging you right the moment I opened it lol, but I just went ahead and started working on installing a few things in the mean time.

    @Karla Beeson if you are free sometime could you someday do a 3dMark FireStrike benchmark. I'd love to know the results. This is of course after you have successfully set up everything.
    Enjoy your great laptop BTW :D

    p.s. Start menu? I only use it to access particular Windows settings; a combination of taskbar for regularly used apps and Everything! for everything else (rarely used apps, all types of files) is so much better in all regards.

    p.p.s. some tabs, all bookmarks and time-date settings hidden for privacy reasons.
