Windows 10: Windows 10 instructional videos by Ten Forums members Solved

  1.    26 Aug 2015 #721

    Well I watched the video on how to uninstall apps BUT those are easy ones to uninstall. How about telling me how to uninstall that app called Xbox??? I am 65 years old and have no need for Xbox.....or all the Xbox files in the registry.

    Kinda hacks me off that Microsoft thinks I should have an XBox account for a simple collection of Solitaire games. Sheesh!

    New video: How to create a Shut down dialog:
    .....
    Very nice!

    The script on Youtube has an error though

    Line 2:
    set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")

    --> should be

    set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")

    This is a very useful script, thanks to all who made it available.

    Script was correct but when copied from Notepad, YouTube presented the end quote as &quot. I had to remove the pasted code and type it directly on YouTube to get it correct.

    EDIT:

    Not working, for some reason YouTube changes the end quote to &quot.

    I added this note to video description:

    NOTICE PLEASE: For an unknown reason, some browsers show the above script code wrong. The error is at the end of line 2; it should be shell.application"), not shell.application&quot)!

    I thought YouTube might be helping you.

    I wonder if Youtube honors Preformatted text tags
    <pre>
    dim objShell
    set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
    objshell.ShutdownWindows
    set objShell = nothing
    </pre>

    I experimented a bit and found that you can also code a single quote (')

    set objShell = CreateObject('shell.application')

    or no quotation on the line
    set objShell = CreateObject(shell.application)

    There was a nice power icon (5952) in twinui.dll, but I couldn't find it on TP 525, I did extract it from a previous build though. It's white and only really useful on a dark background.

    twinui_5952 icon ->[pwrCycle] twinui_5952.ico
    looks good on a black Taskbar -> Click image for larger version. 

Name:	pwrBtnTaskbar.PNG 
Views:	49 
Size:	886 Bytes 
ID:	34398

    I had to add cscript to the target to get it to show the icon correctly on the Taskbar

    cscript.exe C:\Users\Slartybart\scripts\pwrBtn.vbs

    Without cscript, the icon is windows scripting

    I also changed the shortcut to Run: Minimized so the Cmd prompt window does not flash when the shortcut is launched.

    @Kari, are you and the video team still looking for ideas for instructional videos?
    One idea might be, the answers I gave in this thread.
    They have also helped in Eight Forums too. That language indicator can nerve when you don't need it(it has a life of it's own/AI possibly?) , and it took me 2 1/2 months to figure out how to KILL IT. The searches for a solution always brought up how to hide, which only works until explorer restarts.
    Note this is good only if one uses one keyboard language and one different system language.

Hi fellow Ten Forums geeks :) Thanks to @Wynona's and @Cliff's idea I thought why not start sharing our homemade Windows 10 themes. To keep this clean and simple, please post only themes with copyright free or your self made backgrounds to avoid...
