    Your welcome
    But I found that because I am NOT a code or commands Guru like Kari, and never will be.
    I am a black belt in Bing-Fu though, and searched for a UI

    I just simply used choco list > c:\apps.txt

    There was something wrong with gridview syntax.

    No big deal though.

    I checked the syntax in my post, it is correct. choco list | Out-GridView

    OK geeks, thanks for the feedback. Now, it's Quest time

    I modified the answer file shared in yesterday's session a bit, please remove it if you downloaded it.

    I made a new sample answer file, copy it from below and save as unattended.xml or download it (unattend.zip) and extract it. When done, let's practice

    I ask a few questions, try to figure out correct answers. You can open sample unattend.xml in Windows SIM, WordPad, Notepad or Code Writer, to name a few apps. Code Writer is included in Enterprise edition, can be downloaded from Windows Store for other editions: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/stor...r/9wzdncrfhzdt

    This answer file is with following details:
    • Install UK English Windows 10 Pro x64
    • Default Input Language (keyboard) is Finnish
    • Location is United Kingdom
    • Default time zone is CET (Western European Standard Time)
    • Registered organization is Ten Forums
    • Registered owner is Kari
    • Create local admin user Admin with password Password123
    • Create local standard user Kari with password Password456
    • Create local guest account Visitor with password Password789

     Questions:

    1. How would you change username and display name of user Kari to be your name? What else should you change to match you instead of me?
    2. User in question 1 above, how would you change account type from standard to administrator?
    3. How would you remove user Visitor?
    4. How would you change CET time zone and default input language Finnish if this same UK English W10 PRO was installed and intended to be used by someone in UK?
    5. As question 4 but what if the intended user would be located in Australia? As there are several time zones in Australia, let's say in Sydney. (This is a trick question!)
    6. What if the language version is US English and you should change location and default input language to be US / US English?
    7. How would you change the support phone number and website to those of yours?

    Try these first, more advanced extra brownie point earning questions later

    BTW, these sites might help you to answer at least some of the above questions:

    The point of this "Quest" is to show how easy it is to re-use an answer file, modify it to suit your needs.

    Elementary mistake on my part - I was using choco in a command box, not a powershell box.

    The popup was great but not I could not select text to get it to a file.

    The simple choco list >c:\apps.txt did the job, and I have imported to excel for easy reading.

    Thanks for the pointer to my solution.

    No, the mistake was mine. I was PowerShell whenever I can, totally forgot that Chocolatey can also be used in Command Prompt therefore not mentioning command sample was for PowerShell only.

    2. User in question 1 above, how would you change account type from standard to administrator?
    3. How would you remove user Visitor?
    4. How would you change CET time zone and default input language Finnish if this same UK English W10 PRO was installed and intended to be used by someone in UK?
    5. As question 4 but what if the intended user would be located in Australia? As there are several time zones in Australia, let's say in Sydney. (This is a trick question!)
    6. What if the language version is US English and you should change location and default input language to be US / US English?
    7. How would you change the support phone number and website to those of yours?

    Try these first, more advanced extra brownie point earning questions later

    BTW, these sites might help you to answer at least some of the above questions:

    The point of this "Quest" is to show how easy it is to re-use an answer file, modify it to suit your needs.

    I think I managed to do all of above ok, but have a couple of questions about password for user accounts.

    <Password>
    <Value>UABhAHMAcwB3AG8AcgBkADcAOAA5AFAAYQBzAHMAdwBvAHIAZAA=</Value>

    Is that just some random typing or an encrypted password?

    I assume I enter nothing if I want no passwword?
