    @Phoenix

    on your old thread you deleted for custom Win 10 ISO

    you had instructions listed for RegEdit, to delete a few things... what were they again? what was the Find Next word you used?

    Good day Phoenix. I apologize if this has been asked and fixed before. Hope you well. I have a problem and sometime my laptop reboots on it's own so I checked Event Viewer and I saw this log and it came up a few times.

    WHEA 17- a corrected error has occurred, PCI Express root port


    Vendor ID Device ID: 0x8086:0xA115

    Bus:0x0
    device:0x1 function: 0x5
    Class code: 0x30400

    What does it mean exactly? Do I need to be concerned?

    Thanks so much

    Not sure if this is already posted or not. Didn't see it on forum search. The Redmond Retards are still up to their no-good tricks and endless stupidity in their way of thinking. Appears you need an extra service running (more bloat) to achieve "normal" functionality in v1803. Here's a tweak to help correct their stupidity.

    https://winaero.com/blog/network-computers-not-visible-windows-10-version-1803/

    According to Microsoft, Windows HomeGroup was a terrific feature in the pre-cloud and pre-mobile era, but now it is outdated.

    By default, computers in your local network should be visible when you browse for a network device with File Explorer. With recent changes in Windows 10 version 1803 some computers are only accessible via their names or IP addresses. (This is an example of their abject stupidity. Side note: HomeGroup was never necessary to see and access other systems on your home network, but apparently they do not understand their own products.) To fix this annoying issue, you can apply a simple workaround.

    Fix Network Computers are Not Visible in Windows 10 Version 1803
    1. Press Win + R to open the Run dialog.
    2. Type services.msc in the Run box and hit the Enter key.[​IMG]
    3. In the Services window, scroll down to the Function Discovery Resource Publication service.
    4. Double-click it to open its properties and set its startup type to Automatic.[​IMG]
    5. Now, start the service.

    Rename Power Plan in Windows 10
    A power plan in Windows is a set of hardware and system options that defines how your device uses and preserves power. There are three built-in power plans in the OS. Your PC can have additional power plans defined by its vendor. Also, you can create a custom power plan that will include your personal preferences. Today, we will see how to rename a power plan in Windows 10.

    @Phoenix Tab preloading reg trick didn't work on Home editions.
    I had to use gpedit.msc to disable tab preload under Computer and user configuration.

    How to disable the automatic hiding of scroll bars setting in Windows 10:

    Microsoft has introduced a new feature (or rather, nuisance) in Windows 10 recently that automatically hides scroll bars until you hover over their location. This can be confusing because sometimes you might not realize there is even a scroll bar so to disable this annoying setting:

    1) PC Settings > Ease of Access > Display

    2) Turn off "Automatically hide scroll bars in Windows"
