Disable Web Search

Disable the (Bing) Web Search[1] in the start menu:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search]
"CortanaConsent"=dword:00000000
"BingSearchEnabled"=dword:00000000

Disable 3D Objects

Remove the key {0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A} from the registry locations to disable that useless 3D Objects directory:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace

Enable insecure guest logons

To access SMB2 guest logins with Windows 10, we may need to enable "insecure guest logons" in the Group Policy[2]:

  • Start gpedit.msc
  • Enter Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > Lanman Workstation
  • Enable "Enable insecure guest logons"
