As it turned out, most of the presentation's time was spent doing a live demonstration of customizing the Windows 10 Desktop, menu, and browsers. By rough count from my notes, I showed about 80 different settings for those items. There was a handout! You can download it from <here> which were the notes of where all these things are. (There are probably twice that number of customizations available, but these are the most important and/or used.)
I've kept in the slides on Free Books and SSD Efficiency even though we ran out of time for these. They are self explanatory if interested.
