I have a couple of questions about the Win 10's Registry for the Beta members that have been running Win 10 for a while.
Is the Win 10 Registry construct similar to Win 7,8? I have a couple of specific examples that perhaps someone can help provide information about these 2 questions.
- Unattended Sleep Timeout key (introduced with Vista). Since the default timeout is 120 seconds, I changed that to prevent the PC from returning to Standby when it's running unattended overnight AV & MBAM scans.
Is this option still available in Win 10? With Win 7 > Control Panel > Power Options > Change when the computer sleeps > change advanced power settings, here's a screencap that illustrates my question:
The corresponding Registry Key is here in Win 7. Path is
Registry Key Power Plan
8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c High performance
a1841308-3541-4fab-bc81-f71556f20b4a Power saver
The other question pertains to the alt-tab order. For keyboard nerds like me , this is one that I use many times daily. When I installed Win 7 back in 2010, I added this dword to revert the alt-tab order to the way it worked with XP & Vista. Win 7 changed how this worked and I preferred the previous operation mode for alt-tab.
I added this dword to the following Registry location. Path is:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER>> Software>> Microsoft>> Windows>> CurrentVersion>> Explorer
I'm wondering if the Explorer path is the same with Win 10 and if I could add the same "AltTabSettings" dword in the same location.
