Change Number of items included in a W10 Taskbar item Jumplist
Incorrectly editing the Windows Registry file could break your computer. Create a Restore Point before making any changes.
1. To increase the number of pinned items displayed, change the maximum number of jump list items associated with a particular key in the Windows Registry file.
2. Press Windows key + R or right-click the Start Menu icon and navigate to the Run command to open the Run prompt : Type regedit into the box and click OK.
3. Navigate to this set of keys in the Windows Registry:
Pay very close attention to each item as this is where an error might occur.
4. Look through the list in the right-hand pane until you find this DWORD: JumpListItems_Maximum
If that DWORD is not available (copy the DWORD item above) then it is necessary to create one and here is how:
a. Right-click the key to which you wish to add the new DWORD value. A pop-up menu opens up.
b. Point to "New" and choose "DWORD Value" from the drop-down menu options. A new DWORD value displays on the right pane as "NewValue#1." Rename it by right-clicking it and choosing "Rename." Paste the DWORD item.
5. Right-click the JumpListItems_Maximum DWORD just created and select Modify. Click the Decimal radio button and change the number to a value that works for you. I selected 30.

3. Here is some information about how to be sure you can share and open files and folders from one computer to another using W10. Many users when trying to do this from within Explorer\Network run in to a problem with a window asking the user to "Enter Network Credentials". After much searching for the correct information on the internet, I made a call to Microsoft and spoke to a tech support person who over the span of 2 hours tried a variety of methods of being able to access files on the DT and two laptops when all three showed up just fine as being on the Network.
I won't get into all the details as it was primarily one computer that had the issue and the final solution is now added below.
The key to this process which ends up with the process working correctly on Windows 10 is to add each computer the the Homegroup.
here are a couple of links on how to create a homegroup
next you will want to know how to join another computer to the newly created Homegroup.
Now you are ready to proceed to being able to view the contents of shared files or folders on the computers on your Network and Homegroup.
Below are the steps we did to successfully setup the folder sharing in your network.
1. Add the PC to homegroup network
2. Set the specified folders for sharing
3. Edit the permission
1. Once you choose the file/folder that you want to give permission, right click on it.
2. Click on properties and go to security tab, check whether any permission have been set.
3. After you have viewed the permissions that are already set, you can now click on the Advanced Button that is right below the "Permissions for Authenticated Users"
4. Once you have clicked Advanced, a box like this should appear, the "Permission Entries" box, which shows all the permissions that are set for the users. Now, after you have spotted the user whose permissions you wish to change, click "Change Permissions.
5. Click on the user you would like to edit, and then click the option that says "Change Permissions" which is right below the box.
6. Once that is clicked, you are going to get the same box pop up, but this time, you can actually edit the options. You do that by clicking the "Administrators" user again, and this time, you are going to click the "Edit" option.
2. How to Forget a Wireless Network

1. Remove Get Office
2. Remove Startup Apps
4. Remove Core Apps
5. Remove Background Apps
6. Notification sounds
7. Limit Recycle Bin Space
8. Remove W10 Photo Viewer
9. Reset Edge
10. Disable Skype Host exe
11. Turn off P2P update app share
12. Lock Screen Ads
13. Action Center
14. Remove MSI Consumer Experience
15. RUNTIME BROKER
Runtime Broker is a service called Time Broker, which can be disabled through editing the registry.
Before editing, the original value was 3. Set to 4 to disable. Just change the 3 to a 4 through the MODIFY menu selection.
If any issue is found simply reverse the process.
FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Right-click on the Start Menu Icon.
Go to RUN and type regedit.exe and select OK.
Find the following entry: Scroll and use down arrows to get to each place in the Path shown
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] (Click and then scroll to ) "Start"=dword:00000003
Click on "Start" > go to Edit on the Menu Bar> Modify > and when dialogue box opens
Change the 3 to a 4.
exit regedit and reboot your system
4 is Disabled, 3 is Manual and 2 is Automatic startup.
After this edit, Runtime Broker no longer runs and the CPU at idle is now only 0 to 1 or 2 percent. Even though I have followed the above procedure, RTB still runs but at a very low RAM usage.
No adverse affects after disabling Runtime Broker on my system.
Although it is supposed to be neceessary to run Modern Apps, because I seldom use the Start Menu, I have seen no issue that bothers me other than my Weather App does not run in real time but by simply clicking on it, I get any results of value.

12. SendTo and Open Start Menu/manually add programs
Here is the info that is needed to do the whole task
add Programs from the Start Menu to the Send To Menu using the link supplied above
browse to the Start Menu>Programs folder
If you have multiple programs under any specific category create a folder here for those shortcuts to the program to reside which you will add from the instruction below.
Next, in order to add something to the start menu, it MUST be a shortcut so now from wherever you store non installed applications, R click the .exe and use Send To Desktop (create shortcut)
Next -- open the Desktop folder from Explorer. Find the app shortcut on the Desktop and Send To Programs (to create this see the link above)
By having the Programs folder open, if you have a folder contained therein which will have multiple programs of similar type then either drag/drop & use Ctrl + to create a copy or R click and drag and from the flyout menu in the destination folder click on "copy here".
Of course if you just use the Send To, later you can create a folder of similar programs if needed and drag the shortcuts to that folder.
