    I tried both ways, says the path does not exist...or cannot find this path or syntax in not correct, I copy and pasted into CMD run as admin, I even created reg file with notepad and ran it and gives the errors... strange... This version of win 10 is 1803. :confused:

    That's really weird, Sister. Is it one particular tweak that does not work, or all of them quoted on the previous page where you asked do not work?

    The only thing I can think of is that maybe the slobs from the Redmond Mafia made so many changes to 1803 it does not even resemble prior versions of Windoze OS X, or they have made permissions so restrictive the commands do not work with normal admin rights.

    You can try using NSudo with all privileges, including Trusted Installer selected, to see if the scripts work. If it is a permissions issue of some kind that will give you unlimited godlike sledge hammer authority.

    I'm not sure what else to suggest because I do not have 1803 installed on anything. It's very possible they have changed directory paths, or they may be hidden. Did you already try NSudo?

    How to uninstall Microsoft Edge:

    1) Download the Microsoft Edge Uninstaller

    2) Right click on the ZIP file, go to properties, then hit UNBLOCK from the bottom right since this file was downloaded from the internet

    3) Right click on Uninstall Edge.cmd and select Run as Administrator

    4) Wait for the process to finish then reboot when it's complete.

    5) Unpin the Edge icon which should now be blank from the taskbar if you had Edge pinned before.

    Awesome, but what's with the UNBLOCK thing?
    I'm a big fan of glossing over directions and blindly double clicking <kidding of course> and I've never had an issue. I just ran this uninstaller without doing the UNBLOCK and it ran fine.

    well, sometimes, if you don't unblock files, you may have issues or at least an annoyance asking you are you sure you wanna run this file or not

    If you have Windows 10 Pro, you can disable this from happening via the Group Policy Editor > User Configuration > Windows Components > Attachment Manager > Do not preserve zone information in attachments (set that to enabled, apply, then reboot)

    Just a heads up for the non-pro users:

    The "disable downloads blocking" feature of Winaero Tweaker will do the same thing
    https://winaero.com/blog/disable-downloaded-files-from-being-blocked-in-windows-10/

    I'm surprised that I only found out about this whole blocking thing recently (or maybe I just need to pay closer attention)

    How to Enable the Ultimate Power Plan on Windows 10 Pro or Home (+ as well Windows 10 version 1709 or earlier)
    https://www.ghacks.net/2018/04/13/enable-the-ultimate-power-plan-on-windows-10-pro-or-home/

    The Ultimate Performance power scheme
    The Ultimate Performance power scheme is a new power plan that is only available in Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. Designed to reduce micro-latencies to boost performance, the power plan changes settings that Microsoft collected over time that "allow the OS to quickly tune the behavior based on user preference, policy, underlying hardware or workload".

    The Ultimate Performance plan is not available on Windows 10 Pro or Home systems by default. It is possible, however, to integrate the plan in the system. How that is done depends on the version of Windows 10:

    Windows 10 version 1709 or earlier
    [​IMG]

    You need to download the power plan to the local system as it can't be enabled directly on Windows 10 version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) and earlier versions of Windows 10.

    You can download the plan from this web host.

    Do the following once you have downloaded the new power plan:

    1. Extract the archive to the local system.
    2. Open a command prompt interface.
    3. Navigate to the directory you extracted the plan to, e.g. cd c:\users\martin\downloads\ultimateplan
    4. Run the following command to add the new power plan to the list of available schemes: powercfg -import c:\users\martin\downloads\ultimateplan\UltimatePlan.pow
      • Note: you may need to adjust the path accordingly as your username is probably not martin and if you placed the plan in a different directory.
    5. You should get the "Imported Power Scheme Successfully" message right away.
    Open the Power Options on the device. You can do so by tapping on the Windows-key, typing Power Options, and selecting the Control Panel result from the list of results.

    You find the new plan after selecting "show additional plans". Select it to activate it on the device.

    The method is easier if you run Windows 10 version 1803 or later. All you have to do then is the following:

    1. Tap on the Windows-key to open the Start Menu.
    2. Type Cmd.
    3. Hold down the Shift-key and Ctrl-key, and select Cmd.exe from the list of results.
    4. Select yes when the UAC prompt is displayed.
    5. Run the command powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61.
    You can delete the plan at any time by selecting "change plan settings" in the Power Options and then "Delete this plan". (via Deskmodder)

    @Phoenix @Mr. Fox + all not mentioned here, but not forgotten. Enjoy Micro$h4ft's latest scam.
