I just released a new version of my Winaero Tweaker app. As usual, it comes with bugfixes and new features.
To be honest, I wasn't planning a release so soon after the earlier one, but the previous version, 0.6.0.2, reportedly has a bug in the option to disable driver updates. I quickly fixed it and now you can take advantage of that option to disable forced driver updates. Thanks to the user, "Bob" for this bug report.
To make the release more valuable, I added a couple of new features to Winaero Tweaker 0.6.0.3 for Windows 10 users.
Now you can disable Cortana in Windows 10 version 1607 "Anniversary Update". As you may already know, the built-in ability to disable Cortana was removed by Microsoft in the RTM build. Winaero Tweaker adds it back:
Another added option allows stopping auto-update or auto-download of Store apps. By default, Windows Store in Windows 10 is set to download updates to installed and provisioned apps. The Store app also automatically downloads some promoted apps even if the setting we covered earlier to "Turn off consumer experiences" is enabled. This is not acceptable.
Use the provided option to disable this behavior and prevent Windows 10 from auto-updating or auto-downloading Store apps. This can save your disk space, PC resources and bandwidth, but you can end up with old versions of the Store apps which you need to manually update occasionally.
That's it. Feel free to report any bugs you find and make your own suggestions.
