Windows 10: WIN 10 REGISTRY Compared to Win 7/8

    WIN 10 REGISTRY Compared to Win 7/8


    I have lots of Registry tweaks ( reg files ) from the win7/8 forums collected over the years.

    When I set up win 8, I noticed many of the win 7 reg settings were similar and worked in win 8, but a few did not, mainly to do with ui iirc.

    Now I want to use the same tweaks I have gathered, but will these work in win 10? So, will the win 7 ones that worked in win 8, also work in win 10, and the ones I edited to specically work with win 8, will these in turn also work with win 10, or is the win 10 registry and UI reg settings vastly different to win 8 and 7?

    Hello 01swodniw, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    I'm afraid that the only answer would be that most will and some may not still work in Windows 10.

    If you list them all, we should be able to let you know more specifically.

    Check my tweaks for 10, but they are focused on Windows rather than on third party software.
