Shawn,
Please tell (preferably in the title) which versions of Windows each tip is valid for. I still maintain numerous Win.10 installations and most of your tips are exactly the same on both 10 and 11, and many are applicable to older versions of Windows as well. I have a collection of batch files that I use to configure Windows installations and most of them are applicable to all versions of Windows, but a few of the tweaks need to be conditioned for which version of Windows it's configuring. Having something in the title or the description of each tweak telling which other Windows version it's usable on would make this easier.

Hello, :)

Unless specified with a "starting with" in the info at the top of the tutorial, it will apply to all versions/builds.
That isn't immediately obvious. Especially when the title says "... in Windows 11", implying that it only applies to Windows 11.

It'll also have Windows 10 in the info if supported.

That's because option 1 in this tutorial is Windows 11 specific. I'll only have all Windows listed if all options are universal.
I see. The GUI is often quite different in 11. But the registry tweak is the same. Perhaps you could put a link to the Windows 10 version in the info. of each tut. to make it easier to see if there are any differences that I would need to program into my setup config files.

I'm not sure how to go about that without it possibly causing confusion in the tutorial. I'll have to think on it. :(

It's easy. Somewhere in the description say: "To do this in Windows 10, see (link to tenforums article)". Similarly for Windows 7 and 8, if applicable.
And this same recommendation also applies to tut's in those websites too.
