Windows 10 Icon Removal and PERSONAL.XLSB Movement

I had a rather productive afternoon on my computer. If anyone needs help with these items, please contact me and I’ll help you. Long story short, here is what I accomplished:

  1. I can’t stand the Windows 10 upgrade icon in the system tray (lower right). I had removed it before by uninstalling and hiding a windows update, but apparently windows packaged it again with a new update. So I wrote a batch file which I have start on system startup to kill the GWX.exe process which appears.
  2. I had a number of personal macros I wrote a while back which got lost when my computer crashed (I know, I know). So I figure out how to edit the registry to change the location of the PERSONAL.XLSB file where personal macros are stored. I was able to put it in a folder which is backed up to the cloud.

If anyone wants help accomplishing these tasks, let me know by contacting me <<– (click the link).

    After a couple of hours of searching, I was ready to give up on finding a way to change the location of personal.xlsb. If you’re willing to share your approach, I’d appreciate it.
