Hi,

I'm trying to customize the Windows 11 taskbar in audit mode but I can't get it to work.
I followed the MS guide on this page but when installing the ISO the icons that I added in the TaskbarLayoutModification.XML file do not appear
====
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LayoutModificationTemplate
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/LayoutModification"
xmlns:defaultlayout="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/FullDefaultLayout"
xmlns:start="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/StartLayout"
xmlns:taskbar="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/TaskbarLayout"
Version="1">

<CustomTaskbarLayoutCollection PinListPlacement="Replace">
<defaultlayout:TaskbarLayout>
<taskbar:TaskbarPinList>
<taskbar:UWA AppUserModelID="%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Google Chrome.lnk"/>
<taskbar:UWA AppUserModelID="%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\VideoLAN\VLC media player.lnk" />

</taskbar:TaskbarPinList>
</defaultlayout:TaskbarLayout>
</CustomTaskbarLayoutCollection>
</LayoutModificationTemplate>
====
I copy it as indicated in C:\Windows\OEM\TaskbarLayoutModification.xml
and run the registry key according to the manual
cmd /c reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ /v LayoutXMLPath /d C:\Windows\OEM\TaskbarLayoutModification.xml

Thanks for the help

True, according to the indications, the taskbar is left with three icons of the initial six.
At least in my tests.
Thanks.
