    How to Restore Classic Search in File Explorer in Windows 10 version 1909

    With a recently released update KB4532695, Microsoft tried to resolve several issues that made their first appearance with the public release of Windows 10 version 1909 'November 2019 Update'. After installing the patch the search is finally usable, but its behavior is ridiculously different from the classic Search box of File Explorer in OS versions prior to 1909.

    Hi Guys can you suggest which one to use or all of them and in what order
    as its getting quite confusing as more and more tweak programs are coming out.
    These I feel are the best ones out there.
    I'm running 1909

    O&O ShutUp10 1.7.1405
    WPD
    Winaero Tweaker 0.16.1.0
    Debotnet 0.5.2

    Thank You

    You forgot WUB. You find it in the link.

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/the-throttlestop-guide.531329/page-1087#post-10980641

    Needed... Remember clean out all Store Apps as well put metered connection....

    1) WUB
    2) O&O ShutUp10
    3) WPD

    The rest is optional. if you want tweak your OS further.

    I first use Portable CCleaner offline for Store Apps then once online I Block it, and I use Sledgehammer (formerly WUMT Wrapper Script) for all my downloads manually as it blocks windows update.
    So I don't think I need WUB Thanks

    Turn On or Off Hardware-Accelerated GPU Scheduling



    1) Download this ZIP file which contains 2 REG files, one to turn on and another to turn off Hardware-Acceleration GPU Scheduling.

    2) Ensure the ZIP file is not blocked by right clicking on it > Properties, then look at the bottom, if it says this file was blocked because it was downloaded from the internet, just hit the unblock button then Apply then OK.

    3) Double click on the file named Turn On Hardware-Accelerated GPU Scheduling.reg to merge it with the registry.

    4) Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

    Tried it out, but for some reason even after applying the reg patch the Windows Settings Graphics Settings doesn't show that option toggle - I did reboot as well.

    The system I tried it on has a 2070 Super, driver 442.19 and Windows 10 1909, but it appears the setting needs 20H1, and I am running 19H1:

    Starting at this post in this thread, it seems I either need an insider build of the OS, an as yet unreleased 20H1, and perhaps an insider build of the Nvidia driver?

    Also, this doesn't look promising, of course it's just 1 test by 1 guy :)

    Ok, 2 tests...

    Those are from 11/19, so perhaps the 20H1 + Nvidia release driver will pump up the scores, but it's not out till April 2020, so I'll probably wait for the full release to come out and watch for bugs first. :)

    April 2020 - We track the history of the development builds released for the 20H1 feature update for Windows 10 which is scheduled for release in the March/April 2020 time frame.

    Switch Between Command Prompt or PowerShell on WinX Menu

    Recently Microsoft made right clicking on the Start Menu in Windows 10 Offer you to run Power Shell or Power Shell (Admin) instead of the old Command Prompt or Command Prompt (Admin).

    If you prefer to have it display the old Command Prompt instead of Power Shell in the context menu, you will find 2 batch files below, simply right lick on the one you want it to display and choose Run as Administrator.

    You don't even need to reboot for this to work, the batch file will automatically restart Explorer for you and show you the new listing in the context menu.

    Probably just another Micro$lop fairy tale/gimmick to get the kiddos excited. I doubt the Redmond Retards are going to do anything that actually boosts performance in a meaningful way. If they actually cared about that, Windows 10 wouldn't be such a bloated abortion.
