WinSlap is a tiny tool that provides you with control over which functions in Windows 10 you choose to use and how far data gets shared. Using a very simple interface, you decide how Windows 10 should respect your privacy by making recommendations and giving tips for which unwanted functions should be deactivated. There are a lot of options to browse, but WinSlap tries to make life easier by organizing them in several tabs: Tweaks, Appearance, Software and Advanced. No Installation required. Once downloaded, WinSlap is a standalone, portable application that doesn’t even need installing to work.
Goals:
  • Apply tweaks to a fresh installation of Windows 10 after using a clean retail image (if you're looking to apply tweaks during installation, check out image creation tools)
  • No bloat. WinSlap does what it's features list says and nothing else.

  • Disable Shared Experiences

I tried this and it works only for 64 bit single user systems (tested only he say). Last version is for 21H1.
When I say works most of things doesn't work. Example disabling Windows Defender, Telemetry etc.
I think this tool is only for little annoyances and easy install of popular programs (didn't try yet).
It will be nice to have templates like ShutUp.
Having LTSC key is best that you can have it for Windows 10. Or if you must have Windows downgrade to 8.1 or 7.
There is also another way use Linux and use VM for your Windows.
