    you need to learn the Ultra Male lingo which you will see across various posts:

    taptop = laptop
    tootube = YouTube

    just to name a few, I can't remember them all right now as it's 5:37 AM here in Dubai [​IMG]

    Done!
    It was 1.30 AM in India. Added a new bigger table, now I am enjoying it but cable management is a mess and now I don't have enough space for my headphones, adapters and Mifi router.

    I think @Mr. Fox was looking for it since 4 months. I guess he'll be happy!

    How to Disable the Windows 10 Startup Delay:

    After Windows loads up, it doesn't start loading your startup apps immediately as to dedicate more resources to load system services and files. If you have a fast computer and particularly an SSD, you can disable this feature and have even your apps start loading instantly the moment Windows boots up.

    To do this, simply download the following ZIP file which contains to registry entries, one to disable the startup delay and another to enable it. So double click on one of the registry files to disable or enable the delaying of fast startup and reboot.

    Download Startup Delay Registry Files

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Serialize]
    "StartupDelayInMSec"=dword:00000000

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Serialize]
    "Startupdelayinmsec"=-

    I believe this was posted long time ago and I'm using that on PCs by default.

    I think you don't need to enable SMB 1.0 you only need AllowInsecureGuestAuth
    Code:
    reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters /v AllowInsecureGuestAuth /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    Try it, without enabling SMB 1.0 and see if it helps

    The disable appears to add a value to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE branch of the registry where the enable looks like it is set to remove said value from HKEY_CURRENT_USER. I expect that the enable therefore does nothing. You may want to make those match. Also, I found this download on Majorgeeks, so same issue there. I like the idea though, I will be testing this out.
