Go back to Run/regedit and click on
In the right hand window find WaitToKillService, right click and set value to 2000.
Close and restart the machine.
i have an extremely fast machine. but with each successive win 10 build, the restart times have gotten slower and slower. so this techn. helps with keeping the restart or shut down times faster.
Was just setting here reading all the post, and a thought came to me. . .what is so important about the speed of a computer's shutdown. For me once I tell my computer to shutdown I am already walking away to my next adventure, thus the amount of time it takes to shut down is not all that important. . .
Upgraded a laptop and two desktops. No issues here at all. RTM must be really really close
I also have Office 365 Build 4229.1002. Windows Update installed Build 10166. Once the installation was finished, I immediately opened Outlook and it opened! It did not require me to reactivate! On top of that, my Office 365 icons were all intact!
IOW, for the first time since Build 10130, a Windows 10 update to a new build did nothing to upset my apple cart! How cool is that!?!
Cool worked just like you wrote..I had to create a couple of strings and set the values way cool ur way !
When ever I type Winkey + R ... Regedit ,CMD and Powershell are always there maybe because I like to fool around under the hood to much ☻☻
That being said 10166 is looking pretty decnt comared to some of builds a while back aside from the usual occasional instability in the UI apps which seems less frequent now and ofc the stupid task bar web search feature or whatever that sould have an on [off ] toggle or tick so you can just use local task bar search which could work better also
Request: Anyone got a reliable link for 10166 x86 ESD or ISO? Preferable not a Torrent!
