Windows 10: Need assistance with answer file, and some changes reverted after

    Need assistance with answer file, and some changes reverted after

    Hello everyone,

    I put together my first answer file, which almost completed what I wanted.

    • Created two administrators, and a local account.
    • Skipped express setup
    • Skipped signing into Microsoft account.
    • Skipped creating an account.

    However, the following two parts popped up that I would like removed:

    • Select Timezone / Location
    • Select Keyboard Layout
    • Secondary Layout Choice
    • Windows Updates
    • Accept User agreement * (Not a big deal, but I would like it removed).

    Also, some things did not roll over:

    • Microsoft Edge did not save the homepage.
    • Google Chrome did not save homepage/extensions.
    • Start Menu Titles reverted back, customization disappeared.
    • Task bar also reverted back.

    If anyone can help with any sections above, I would highly appreciate this!

    This tutorial will show step by step how to completely automate Windows Setup and OOBE: Create media for automated unattended install of Windows 10 - Windows 10 Tutorials

    For Edge favorites, you can use Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) to set them in Audit Mode before sysprepping. The policy you need to edit is Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Edge > Configure Favorites. Users can edit, add and remove favorites set here.

    Alternatively you can configure favorites using policy Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Edge > Provision Favorites. Provisioning instead of configuring, users cannot edit, sort, move, export or remove favorites.

    Chrome is a bit trickier, see for instance this: Google Groups

    Start and Taskbar customization:
