    Windows 10 Home x64 Version 21H2 Build 19044.1706

    I have a tool that opens the Registry at a specific key or, if desired, with all branches fully collapsed. This lets me save tailored shortcuts to relevant Registry keys along with my other notes about particular topics.

    I just posted the details in A scheme for opening the Registry fully collapsed or at a specific key

    I got the idea from Regedit - Windows CMD -
    - Their own suggestion required a specific batch file to be written for each occasion but I thought that using tailored shortcuts would be much more practicable.
    - Security is better preserved using a tailored shortcut scheme because the central batch file can be in a permissions-protected folder and the only thing that requires elevation is the final call to RegEdit itself - a call that cannot do anything other than show the Registry without taking any action on it.

    That's cool but way more work than I want to get into for the few times I need to work with the registry. When I do I typically work with the same key repeatedly for a while so regedit opens it where I need it any way.

    For the security conscious and those that like to check published file HASH's prior to downloading off the web, you can use Powershell to check.

    Get-FileHash <file_name> -Algorithm<hash_algorithm>

    This should qualify, have not seen it on any other site:

    Windows 10 Creators Update - Name PC at Setup

    In my opinion, one of the worst decisions Windows 10 developer teams made was to remove possibility to name your PC already when setting it up. Especially when this feature was removed at the same time when Windows introduced digital licensing. For instance, transferring a digital license to another computer is based not only on your Microsoft account but also on old computer's name.

    In Windows 7 setup, PC was named after your chosen username but you could change it to whatever you wanted to. Windows 8 took this a step further. No name was suggested, you simply had to name the PC otherwise you could not finish the setup.

    This video shows how to fix this, name your Windows 10 PC already when setting up a pre-installed or a clean installed Windows 10 Creators Update or later version.

    I wonder if i can use this method during automated OOBE? and if yes, in which step I can do it? Thanks
