    closing personalization window in CMD


    hi. I make a little script to switch the themes back and forth coz since 9926 a custom theme F*cks up the whole windows until I call the default and restart explorer and I work on a CMD working on that, but I have one little problem.

    at sevenforums I read that this line
    Code:
    taskkill /fi "WINDOWTITLE eq Personalization"
    can kill the Personalization Window, as it seems it doesnt work on 10 (it says no windows found for the filter), but with task manager I can precisely select that window and shut it off, can someone help me on this?

    It does work, but only from an elevated command prompt (run as administrator). Under Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 apps don't have access to other processes information if they're not elevated.

    doesnt look like it.
    I just opened an admin CMD by win+X and a personalization window by the obvious, aka right click desktop an so on.

    and I still got no results for the criteria...

    It works for me when I type that exact command into an elevated command prompt, and it closes the window. Do you, by any chance, have a localized version?

    while I did have it on german once I hopped back to English coz of cortana.
    the only thing that isnt in English is the kb layout, coz I cant remember the Symbols on a US keyboard.

    Here's a shot of it happening, with the admin prompt and everything...

    Since it seems you've done at least some fiddling with your system, have you done things like run explorer as an administrator or any other kinds of tweaks? Did you disable UAC?

    You can also do a TASKLIST /V and it should list the tasks along with any Actual Window Titles that the kernel sees.

    I usually keep UAC intact, and so it is here.
    also according to task Manager the Explorer runs as My1, which is me.
    My Win10 Mods are AeroGlass for Windows 10, a mod to make the Metro Window frames look like the ons of any other software (both provided by bigmuscle on MSFN) and a new Theme

    Well, it sounds like you've done mods that modify window handling, which is probably the cause of your issues. Try the Tasklist I listed above. I don't know how your mods work, but they may be "hosting" the window in a different window, and thus not publishing the Window title as the normal frame would.

Hi all, I noticed since Build 10162 was installed that IE11 restarts after I have closed it down. How can I stop this from happening ?
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
