At each appointment we will provide the advice and information necessary to meet both the needs of those who use the PC for work and those who want to make the most of their system in the gaming field, all accompanied by the respective commands that will allow you to completely modify automatic, through a convenient batch file, the analyzed settings. So let's open this review with the analysis of the first two categories in the menu Settings: System e devices.


Start> Settings> System

Except for special needs, in the category System we advise you to make the following changes, leaving the default values 鈥嬧媔n the remaining settings:

  • In Screen activate the feature Night light, very useful if you want to use your PC at night or before going to bed.
  • In Notifications and actions deactivated: Show notifications on the lock screen, Show reminders and incoming VoIP calls on the lock screen, Show Windows configuration and customization after updates e Get tips when using Windows. Furthermore, if you are a gamer or if, more simply, you want to get rid of app notifications (banners and sounds) once and for all, you can disable Get notifications from apps and from other senders.
  • In multitasking deactivated Occasionally show hints in the timeline.
  • If you are a gamer or if you are not interested in using device sharing, in Shared experiences you can also deactivate Allow apps from other devices to open and send messages to apps from this device.


Start> Settings> Devices

The category devices it does not require major interventions. The only setting we suggest you disable is Show suggestions for recommended apps, present in Pen and Windows Ink.


The commands for your batch file

After you have made a system backup as a precaution, you can safely proceed with creating the batch file containing the commands to change the above settings. From the following strings, copy the ones that best suit your needs and paste them into the Block notes:

Start> Settings> System> Display> Night Light> On

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionCloudStoreStoreCacheDefaultAccount$$windows.data.bluelightreduction.settingsCurrent /v Data /t REG_BINARY /d 020000000000000064b4d40100000000434201000201ca1400ca1e00ca3200ca3c0000 /f >NUL

Start> Settings> System> Notifications & Actions> Show notifications on lock screen> Off

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionNotificationsSettings /v NOC_GLOBAL_SETTING_ALLOW_TOASTS_ABOVE_LOCK /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL

Start> Settings> System> Notifications & Actions> Show Incoming VoIP Calls & Reminders on Lock Screen> Off

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionNotificationsSettings /v NOC_GLOBAL_SETTING_ALLOW_CRITICAL_TOASTS_ABOVE_LOCK /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL

Start> Settings> System> Notifications and Actions> Show Windows Configuration and Personalization after updates and occasionally when I log in to report news and tips> Off

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionContentDeliveryManager /v SubscribedContent-310093Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL

Start> Settings> System> Notifications & Actions> Get tips while using Windows> Off

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionContentDeliveryManager /v SubscribedContent-338389Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL


Start> Settings> System> Notifications and actions> Get notifications from apps and other senders> Disabled

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPushNotifications /v ToastEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL


Start> Settings> System> Multitasking> Show suggestions in timeline occasionally> Off

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionContentDeliveryManager /v SubscribedContent-353698Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL

Start> Settings> System> Shared experiences> Allow apps from other devices (including connected phones and tablets) to open and send messages to apps on this device and vice versa> Disabled


REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionCDP /v CdpSessionUserAuthzPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionCDP /v RomeSdkChannelUserAuthzPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL

Start> Settings> Devices> Pen and Windows Ink> Show suggestions for recommended apps> Off

REG ADD HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPenWorkspace /v PenWorkspaceAppSuggestionsEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f >NUL

Finally, save the text by adding the extension to the file name .cmd, eg: Settings_1.cmd. Now you just need to double-click on the file you just saved or, better yet, run it as administrator using the right mouse button, then restart your PC to make the changes effective.


At each setting its registry key

Windows 10 settings are usually stored in specific keys within the registry. If you want to add the commands needed to change these settings to your batch file, you can use the free tool Regshot, which will allow you to quickly take a snapshot of the registry and compare it with a second one, taken after making the desired changes to the system.
