Having access to “Azure Dev Tools for Teaching” (formerly known as MS Imagine, MS DreamSpark, and MSDN Academic Alliance) for training and experimentation has its perks, but I miss the ability to show certain desktop icons without activating Windows 10 and/or Server 2019. Here’s how.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
"{59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}"=dword:00000000
"{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
"{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}"=dword:00000000
"{5399E694-6CE5-4D6C-8FCE-1D8870FDCBA0}"=dword:00000000
