Hello and thanks for a Tipp,

to customize the new Startlayout for all users I should use a json file as described on ms sites "LayoutModification.json" and add it in the shell folder of the default users. In Win 10 the xml file worked perfectly, but I have difficult with the json...

Maybe someone has tried something. I want only the office programs, file explorer, edge and some tool. Thank you very much.
