Windows 10 Optimization Script
##########
# Win10 Optimization Script With Extra GPD Win Tweaks
# Adapted version of https://github.com/Disassembler0/Win10-Initial-Setup-Script by Disassembler <disassembler@dasm.cz>
# Author: BlackDragonBE
# Version: v2.2.1 (2017-12-02)
# Copied from https://www.reddit.com/r/gpdwin/comments/6ipa6c/windows_10_optimization_script_for_gpd_win/
##########
# As a workaround for disabled script execution, run this command (without #) in an elevated PowerShell windows first and choose "all" if you're asked where to apply this:
# Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope Process -ExecutionPolicy Bypass
<#
Release Notes:
v2.0
- Complete overhaul, fully based on https://github.com/Disassembler0/Win10-Initial-Setup-Script now
- Migrated my tweaks to the new system
v2.1
- More GPD Win service tweaks
- Even more services to disable
- More features/components removed
- Disable the compatibility appraiser
- Minor cleanup
- Enabled more default tweaks
v2.2
- Improved the way applications get installed by Ninite, you can now easily decide what apps (not) to install
v2.2.1
- Fixed Ninite install bug causing the script to endlessly loop (yikes!)
- Tried to keep some reg edits more silent
