Windows 10 and Instant Sheller?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

In the past, I've used Instant Sheller to "hide" the operating system and to boot directly to HS.  I've never tried the utility with Windows 10?  Has anyone tried this?  

Thanks,

Jim

If you have pro windows just use the custom ui group policy. It's pretty much what shelling tools do anyway.

That works great and hides 99% of the operating system, but I still get the one blue login screen (with the spinning circle) and account name that briefly says "Welcome".  I have auto login set, so the screen is only displayed for a moment, but its still a distraction.  Any suggestions regarding how this screen can be eliminated so its a completely "clean" boot (no signs of the operating system)?

Thanks,

Jim

Not easily possible unless you run the enterprise version of windows. Enterprise has a group policy to stop that screen from showing.

Thanks.  I appreciate the input.  I'm a little surprised no one has come up with a new version of Instant Sheller that supports Windows 10.  But the approach you cited works fairly well, so perhaps I'll simply live with the login screen.

Thanks again!

Jim

I succeeded to fully hide everything by customizing a High Contrast theme: all the loading animation etc... can be customized within the theme configuration file..

Windows10 enterprise seems to ignore shelling from group policies and system registry here. Just use launcher4kodi.

Windows 10 Pro and above include a group policy option to replace explorer.exe. It’s simple. All these sheller apps basically either mess around with Windows system files, or just use the group policy option anyway.

Set a cool background and user avatar. Have a user account named ‘Great Arcade’ or whatever and make a thing of it.
