Windows 10 Setup Script - V 2.0.0.0

Over the past few weeks I have been revisiting how I setup new workstations both with SCCM and manually.  There are a few script I put together to configure things like the page file and disable Cortana. These scripts are useful but hard to always keep up to date and if I want to use them in a SCCM TS then I need make a step and package for each script. So I have consolidated these script into the Win10Setup script. The script will still remove built in apps and import a custom start menu config file, Below are the changes I have made to the script.
  • A default list of apps to remove if a txt file of apps is not specified
  • Switch to export your start menu layout to use for deployment
  • Parameters to join a computer to a domain (not usable with SCCM or other deployment automation applications)
  • Switch to disable the Consumer Experience
  • Switch to stop and disable Xbox services
  • Switch to move and set the page file 
  • Switch to disable the hibernate power option
  • Switch to disable Windows Tips
  • Switch to reboot the computer (Not recommenced with SCCM or MDT)
In some of my posts I have talked about how you can use this script to configure windows 10. If you have used the script you will want to change the command line for the task to the -Command instead of -file. By using the -Command parameter you can specify what parameters from the script you want to use rather then specifying the parameters in the script its self. Below is a idea of what your task should look like.
