      Double Driver

      The one Program every person with an Intel box must have.


      For those that don't know this will make a backup of the current Windows drivers from your working intel device, Box, Tablet, laptop etc.
      Before you start tinkering and start thinking you know more than Microsoft Windows.
      Install and run this program

      It will make a backup of current windows drivers in your working system, (put in a safe and easy to remember place)
      When you do updates etc create another backup of new drivers.

      Double Driver

        Some features that can be Turned off in Windows 10 Features if not required may save a bit of space/resources on these mini PC's Microsoft operating systems ship with features, several of them enabled by default, that many Windows users may not need when it comes to running the computer.
        These features are enabled for compatibility purposes, and while that is a good thing, may use memory, cpu cycles, or even expose the device to attacks or security issues.
        The following guide lists installed features on Microsoft's operating system Windows 10, and their purpose.
        The guide explains what each feature is designed for, and whether it makes sense to disable the feature on your machine.
        Obviously, you don't want to disable or turn off features that you require, but since it is a simple "flip a switch" process, it is easy enough to restore functionality should you experience any issues after turning off features.

          It's amazing how many unneeded services can hog resources.

            Another handy program remove more those things you don't need on you Mini Windows PC.

            Geek Uninstaller: remove Windows apps
            The latest version of Geek Uninstaller, a third-party solution for Windows to remove installed software, supports removing Windows apps.
            Geek Uninstaller is one of a handful of programs that you can use as an alternative for Windows' built-in uninstaller.
            Just like Revo Uninstaller and others, it supports not only the removal of programs, but also the scanning for leftovers so that traces left on the device after uninstallation are removed as well.
            The most recent update of Geek Uninstaller, version 1.4.0.82, introduced support for Windows Store applications to the desktop program.

                Improve YouTube Video Playback on Low Power Intel mini PCs by Disabling VP9 Support in Chrome or Firefox
                CNXSoft been reviewing several Intel Bay Trail, Cherry Trail, and Braswell mini PCs in the last year or so, and I always end up recommending Microsoft Edge browser over Firefox or Chrome for people wanting to watch YouTube videos, as the last two browsers always drop many frames with the video stuttering regularly. However I noticed that while Edge is playing MP4/AVC (H.264) video, the other two browser would normally stream WebM/VP9 videos, and it could be the cause of the problem as H.264 can be hardware accelerated, but VP9 not, and the low power processor might not quite powerful enough to handle 1080p VP9 video decoding smoothly. CNXSoft investigated the issues with Vorke V1 mini PC powered by an Intel Celeron J3160 processor (6W TDP) with the three browsers by first checking enabled codecs in YouTube HTML5 page.

                  Windows 10 64bit Cherry Trail (x5-Z8000 family) chip-set drivers (includes battery-sensor and others.)

                  From ASUS.com but they are generic drivers signed by Intel and with a proper installer.
