Turn off Win11 system ads “GitHub hot spots” with one click

Estimated read time 5 min read

I don’t know how many readers are already tired of the ads that come with Windows 11, but don’t know how to turn them off?

Although there are detailed shutdown tutorials online, they all require manual operation one by one, which is not very convenient. Therefore, today’s “GitHub Hotspot Quick Tour” brings you a tool “OFGB” that can easily turn off Windows 11 system ads. It is ready to use out of the box, has a simple interface, and is easy to operate. It is worth having! In addition, there is a tool “Fastfetch” for viewing system information faster, a tool for easily creating USB/SD boot disks “Etcher”, and a tool “Hurl” written in the Rust language for plain text definition of HTTP requests. These open source projects are ready-to-use out of the box and are simple and practical to the end!

Finally, what is not to be missed is the new neural network architecture “KAN” that became very popular last week. It has aroused heated discussion in the community since it was open sourced. It has mixed praise and criticism on the Internet. We sincerely invite you to take a look.

1. Open source hot search projects

1.1 Tool to turn off Windows 11 system advertisements: OFGB

Main language: C# , Star: 3.2k , weekly growth: 3k

This project is a desktop application written in C#. It modifies the Windows registry to disable various advertisements that come with the Windows 11 system, such as personalized advertisements in the start menu, file explorer, lock screen, search, taskbar, etc. .

1.2 Faster system information tool: Fastfetch

Main language: C , Star: 5k , weekly growth: 2.8k

This is a command line tool similar to neofetch, which can provide an overview of system-related information in the terminal. It is written in C language and is faster than neofetch written in bash. The information displayed includes operating system, Shell, kernel, CPU, GPU, memory, etc. It currently supports Linux, Android, FreeBSD, macOS and Windows 7+ operating systems.

1.3 USB/SD boot disk creation tool: Etcher

Main language: TypeScript , Star: 27k

This project can burn the operating system image into an SD card or USB device, which can be used to create a bootable and portable operating system. It has a friendly operation interface and can create a USB boot disk in just 3 steps. It is suitable for Linux, macOS and Windows 10 and above.

1.4 Tool for defining HTTP requests in plain text: Hurl

Main language: Rust , Star: 11k , weekly growth: 500

This is a command line tool written in Rust that can define HTTP requests in plain text. It is ready to use out of the box and easy to integrate. It can easily initiate HTTP requests or test interfaces and HTML content. It supports multiple links, GraphQL, result verification and other functions.

POST https://example.org/api/tests
{
    "id": "4568",
    "evaluate": true
}
HTTP 200
[Asserts]
header "X-Frame-Options" == "SAMEORIGIN"
jsonpath "$.status" == "RUNNING"    # Check the status code
jsonpath "$.tests" count == 25      # Check the number of items
jsonpath "$.id" matches /\d{4}/     # Check the format of the id

1.5 New neural network architecture: KAN

Main language: Jupyter Notebook , Star: 7.5k , weekly growth: 7k

This project is inspired by the Kolmogorov-Arnold representation theorem and its application to neural network design. The main difference between KAN and multi-layer perceptron (MLP) architecture is the way the activation function is used. It places the activation function on the weights, making it more accurate and easier to interpret (sometimes) than MLP. The disadvantage is that the training speed is slower.
