Just One Thing


Installed the latest Insider Build and am running my reconfiguration script yet again. [Tangent: also just upgraded Linux Mint from 19.2 to 19.3, which took less than 10 minutes.]

I understand that MSFT needs to reset a lot of things when installing new builds, but one in particular has become REALLY ANNOYING. Every time I need to change the registry NOT to show shortcut arrows. Why is this an ALL USERS setting rather than each user being able to change this setting just for themselves? Not that there aren’t pointless reversions to individual user settings, so that with every new build I have to pick my personalized theme yet again.

A small thing, a very small thing, but sometimes those are the most irritating.

    Way back when, this was an option included in TweakUI in the classic Powertoys.

    Any word of TweakUI coming to the new Powertoys? I mean... I doubt it, since giving the end user options just doesn’t seem like Microsoft’s style anymore.

    The one I've had trouble with is screensaver and lock settings. Windows 10 updates always seem to revert that to "3D Text" and no locking on resume.
