Since Windows 10 "disabled" the group policy editor is there another way to change common dialog boxs?

I know there's a way to install gpedit.msc but I wanted to find out if there are any other more simple ways to do it first.

 

The only things I want to change right now is:

 

1st. remove the drop down box and history in save boxes like in image 1 below.

 

2nd. the right click dialog boxes won't scroll up or down with my mouse wheel and won't autoscroll up or down when I hover the mouse pointer over the up and down arrows (circled in red) in image 2

 

If you know how I can change these without installing gpedit let me know and thanks in advance!

Normally there is a registry entry to do pretty much anything you can do with a GPO.  I didn't test the registry edit, but even if the option is still there, it won't change the background.
