Here is a little program I've written for Windows 10 users (but they may work in 8 as well).

It restores the Win 7 clock, the win 7 volume control, and the win 7 action centre.

How to:
1. Unzip the files.

If you don't have my StringMap library v10 or above....

2. Run setup_stringmap.exe - just browse to your IWBDev / EBasic root folder in C:\Program Files and click OK.

Alternatively, if that doesn't work, copy the .lib file to your Libs folder, the .inc file to your include folder.

Next,
3. Compile registrytweaksforwin10.iwb

4. Browse to registrytweaksforwin10.exe - right click and select "Run as Administrator".

5. Log off / or reboot to see the changes.

To remove the changes....

Remove the comment from the last three lines,
compile,
Browse to registrytweaksforwin10.exe - right click and select "Run as Administrator",
Log off / or reboot.

If you like this let me know please, I have plenty more tweaks... I love working with the windows registry, hence my previous post here http://www.ionicwind.com/forums/index.php?topic=5878.0
(how to add your program to right click context menus).

So if you'd like to know more about the registry just ask.

Attached is the zip file for the win 10 tweaks.

Thanks,
Andy.
