    Unpin tiles from Start menu


    Hi,
    I have a question
    How can I unpin all tiles from the Start Menu using a batch script or registry editor in Windows 10 20H2

    There are many googleable samples that would have to be tested but this one looks like an authoritative solution:

    Your only job next is to enumerate all taskbar icons loop trough them.

    I think I expressed myself badly, I meant to unfasten all the tiles from the Start Menu, not from Taskbar
    In addition, I want it to be in the registry or batch file and not in powershell because then I would have to import the file online because I want to have all my script in one .bat file

    Apologies for taskbar, my mistake.

    Btw. you don't have to import anything from online:

    Same piece as in post 2 except for tiles:

    Code:
    (New-Object -Com Shell.Application).
        NameSpace('shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1}').
        Items() |
      %{ $_.Verbs() } |
      ?{$_.Name -match 'Un.*pin from Start'}
    Taken from here, tested and it works:

    Can I ask you to convert this script to a batch file, i.e. run this command from a command prompt without having to have a .ps1 file?

    I guess this code doesn't work properly at 20h2 anymore

    Good luck with command prompt, it seem following registry option no longer works:

    HKCU or HKLM \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoStartMenuPinnedList = 1
    It should remove all pinned start menu items.

    You can manage start menu with XML layout trough registry, but that's not what you want:

    It works just fine with a little of adjustment.

    Can I ask you to prepare a batch file that would set the visual effects options as in the screenshot?

    I'm Sorry but I really hate batch files.
