    I did try it and reverted back because Fluent UI misbehaves sometimes so its better to stick at default settings. Too much space is wasted for displaying scroll bar.

    @Phoenix Thank you so much for the fantastic help! When I click at "everything" there is an annoying pop-up. I try to run it as an admin by default but doesn't help.

    Is there any way to disable this?

    Thanks

    Everything requires Admin Access to work properly.

    You can open Everything > Tools > Options > General

    Then click on the Everything Service checkbox to have its service running in he background

    Now go to D:\Software\Everything folder

    Right click on Everything.exe then go to Properties > Compatibility > Change Settings for All Users (button located at the bottom) . Now, uncheck the box which says Run this Program as Administrator then hit Ok and Ok again to exit the properties Window then reboot.

    Now everything will work without Admin Access and thus, no popup

    PS: I forgot to show you how to restore the Phoenix Image that I created for you so make sure you watch this video till the end, towards the end is where I show you how to restore an image:

    Hey @Phoenix, remember the Disk Cleanup shortcut you gave me before? I was wondering if it still works on you. We both have the same OS version (17134.167).

    For anyone who forgot (silly me), do this. Thanks, man.

    OT: Regarding the use of MS Office, what stuff do you usually keep running?

    Here's my Autoruns screenshot for "Office."

    It also came with two telemetry entries (AgentFallBack2016 and AgentLogOn2016) that I've turned off.

    All entries are needed since you use Click2Run tech. I disable WU so I update my office setup by downloading new copies of office from MSFT since newer Office updates doesn't cleanup older versions properly on C2R.

    How to fix the bad Windows 10 DPI Scaling which makes some programs appear blurry

    Windows XP and 7 applied scaling on a per system wide level so everything scales perfectly and looks sharp. Then starting from Windows 8, Micro$haft started using per app scaling which caused issues but with Windows 8, you were stable able to make it on a per system wide level. Now with Windows 10 it only has per app scaling so..., the above tool can fix that, before using it, make sure you set back your scaling level to 100% and reboot then only use the tool to choose the scaling level you want as to not confuse it.
    Windows 10 Redstone 4 has an option to fix blurry apps that doesn't do crap. But here's a little tweak where you can fix this

    1) Click on Start > PC Settings

    2) Type Blurry in the Search box

    3) Then follow the below illustrations:

    End result, everything look sharp like it should (excuse the quality is not the best from the screenshot but it will be super sharp on your PC):

    That is for the Office 2016 Pro I guess because I have none of that on my Office 2016 which comes with my Office 365 subscription
