Windows 10

I hardly use Windows these days, except to play games on Steam and arrange music in Sibelius. It can be made slightly more bearable by installing these:

  • Yoink nifty things off the web from the command-line with wget for windows. See Quicktime for how to yoink Apple trailers.
  • Get your X-style compose key with wincompose. Makes typing áàâåāčçöµ© much easier.

Remove OneDrive

In a cmd window run these:

%SYSTEMROOT%\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall
rd "%USERPROFILE%\OneDrive" /Q /S
rd "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive" /Q /S
rd "%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft OneDrive" /Q /S
REG DELETE "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}" /f
REG DELETE "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}" /f

Reboot when you're good and ready, and not before

Change the UpdateOrchestrator Reboot task in the Task Scheduler to pop up a message instead of rebooting. See this comment on this Superuser answer.
