  1. hey Sergey,

    Can you please make a collection of features which are safe to disable in group policy editor. I have disabled several features myself including MS store but I am not sure what else can be disabled without breaking the Windows. I experiment with latest insider W10 build in VMware, but it will be helpful for everyone if you can list all those features which can be safely disabled including Edge. I like to optimize my PC for maximum performance for running Matlab or VMware.
    I also like to ask what is your opinion on Windows Update MiniTool.

    Thank you for your great work.
