I will call this the "Mothership of Windows 10 tweaks"!

o((*^▽^*))o。;+*(★`∪´☆)*+;。
Applying this load of tweak is kinda total overhaul...after applying tweak & booting there are chances we may see on the screen Win 11, 12, 13.....But Win 10 no chance;):)

I am using a guide that was posted here on MT by @BoraMurdar, very usefull and no need for 3rd party software.
Can someone tell me how to disable Cortana? I don't like to see it in my Task Manager.
Since i can't use it why is there?(Not available in my country yet)

Finished uploading the tweaks pack

Collection of Windows 10 tweaks download link. All respect goes to the authors of tweaks. I have just collected them over the years.

MEGA

Before you start fooling around with your Windows 10 install create a backup image and create some restore points just in case.

Most the files/scripts are harmless to enable but some will bork your system. Read .txt files carefully and choose wisely what to install.

I didn't organize what I uploaded so there are duplicates, useless files and rubbish files in there. Ignore what you don't need.



I've included the best Windows 10 Tweak Tools Latest Versions and they should be enough for most users.

Don't blame me if your corrupt your system and have to do a clean install. Make up your own mind before applying any tweak.

I'm working all this weekend but I will try to stick around if you have any questions.

Yeah it's a large file. As I said I did not organize the collection. It's just a full dump of what I have on hand.

I will try to organize the collection and select the useful bits in the future and make a guide.
Wow, Just downloaded it and have idea where to start first, hahaha! Thank you! I really appreciate this!

Here is one of my favorite tweaks: HIdden Disk Cleaner Functions

To access these extended disk cleanup features, you will need to create a special shortcut. Here’s how:

1. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select “New” followed by “Shortcut”

2. Paste the following :

%SystemRoot%\System32\cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535&Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

Just when you select a non-English speaking region in Windows Settings, Cortana will be disabled. You would need to change additional privacy options under Privacy. And that's it.

I'd recommend Safer Networking's Anti-Beacon for privacy concerns:
Spybot Anti-Beacon for Windows
Simple to use, comprehensive, easy to see what its done and free (and no ads)

I also use SoftOrbits Privacy Protector for Windows 10, which I got as a giveaway, it gives a few extra privacy bits Anti-Beacon doesnt, however, its way too expensive for what it is so I won't buy it, and it has a few glitches (resetting some of the privacy settings youv'e manually set yourself, back to less private).
