Today I finished another major update to the CustomizeWindows10 module I have been working on together with Jan Egil Ring. This module started as a means for me to configure/tweak Windows 10. When I was experimenting with the various Windows 10 insider builds I found myself configuring the same settings on each deployment and I was looking to simplify this process. The module contains a number of tweaks and configuration options to customize and personalize the Windows 10 experience.
In the past I have uploaded the majority of my scripts and functions to the TechNet Script Gallery, but recently I have started using GitHub as a version control system for my scripts. Eventually I plan to upload my entire collection of scripts to GitHub as it provides the opportunity for easier interaction with a wider community but for now this module is my first experiment with both the PowerShell Gallery as well as GitHub.
The module consists of both a PowerShell module as well as a DSC module to allow complete flexibility when applying these settings. In the following example the module will be used to ensure that hidden files are visible and that file extensions are always shown:
1 2 3 4
Import-Module -Name CustomizeWindows10 Enable-ShowFileExtension Enable-ShowHiddenFiles Get-ShowHiddenFiles
