    This works on Windows 7 too (just checked). Now if ms morons had provided the GUI way for blacklisting those wi-fi networks right from the wi-fi window then it would have been 'nice new tool brought by win10 update'. But in that case they wouldn't have been morons... for 3rd year in a row. That is how you bring new good product, by making it better instead of doing 10 steps back and changing everything for the sake of change.
    P.S. Still thanks for this hack. Might use it some day and definitely save commands for that.

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this and I didn't see it on the list, but WDP looks like an alternate version of O&O Shutup10 that is slightly better categorized and gives slightly better explanations for what you are disabling.

    ESET's NOD32 Antivirus' HTTP Scanner blocked the URL for WPD.

    ESET has been known to have 0 false positives or very little for many years. Proof: False Positives Latest Test

    Thus, not coming near this with a 10 foot pole.

    I will only stick to O&O ShutUp10 because ironically, they are a Micro$h4ft Partner and their software never breaks anything nor does anything suspicious :d:eek::rolleyes:

    How to disable the lock screen

    Copy/paste the following text in a text notepad then save the file with a .reg extension then double click on it to merge it with your registry

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization]
    "NoLockScreen"=dword:00000001

    This is one of my favorite tweaking tools.

    I wish I could say I liked Windows 10 even half as much. It sucks how much functionality Micro$loth keeps removing with every new flavor of Windows 10 feces.

    did you see the amount of tweaks available? that's how bad Windows 10 is and needs to be tweaked and stripped down. I love the old Classic Alt+Tab which is much simpler with no preview.

    Yeah, absolutely agree with you. I can't think of any word to describe it other than "pathetic" how crappy Windows 10 has become.
