    Improve Windows 10 with one-click batch files

    I'm not sure if this is posted in the right section.
    Pleasant Windows 10 is a collection of one-click batch files by Ghacks reader Joern that improve the operating system in various ways.

    While there are plenty of tweaking and privacy tools out there for Windows 10, all have in common that you cannot verify any of the operations before they are executed.

    This may not be an issue for some users, but if you want full control of what is happening in this regard, you may prefer a solution that is more open.

    Batch files are ideal for that, as they open in any plain text editor. You may then go through them line by line to verify what they do before executing them.

    Another benefit of this approach is that you may adjust the batch file as you see fit. This is especially useful if multiple changes are made by it to the system.

    Better would be in Software & Apps. Maybe @Barman58 can move it.

    Pleasant Windows 10 is a collection of one-click batch files by Ghacks reader Joern that improve Windows 10 in various ways.While there are plenty of tweaking programs to be had, this one is designed to manage a handful of "issues." Being batch files you can confirm or even edit them to your needs. Very handy for tweaking computers that you regularly work on as there's always default changes we all like to apply for different situations.Because they are batch files we recommend only advanced users execute them and that you make a backup before beginning. Batch files are not for the faint of heart or inexperienced. Originally it was password protected, probably to confuse those who don't know better. We've removed the password. Also, there was no description of each batch file so we have added those to a text file called "Pleasant 10 Descriptions.txt" and added it to the root. While some of these tweaks apply to Windows 8, it's really geared towards Windows 10. Read more at: Download Pleasant Windows 10 - MajorGeeks
