    Hello,

    I'm trying to remove all the ugly blue "help" buttons from the top right corner of several of the windows throughout the OS, mainly in the control panel items.

    I have identified the following files to contain them:

    accessibilitycpl.dll
    ActionCenterCPL.dll
    DiagCpl.dll
    fvecpl.dll
    PerfCenterCPL.dll
    powercpl.dll
    sdcpl.dll
    SensorsCpl.dll
    systemcpl.dll
    taskbarcpl.dll
    themecpl.dll
    usercpl.dll
    wucltux.dll


    For example, "wucltux.dll" is the windows update window.

    Upon viewing the code through a hex editor via "UIFILE\123" for example, I believe that I have narrowed it down to the following:

    <if class="cp_help_glyph">
    <Button height="18rp" width="18rp" content="icon(99,sysmetric(49),sysmetric(50),library(imageres.dll))" padding="rect(1rp,1rp,1rp,1rp)" cursor="hand" accRole="link" accdefaction="click" tooltip="true"/>
    <if keyfocused="true">
    <Button contentalign="focusrect"/>
    </if>
    </if>
    <if class="cp_content_pane">
    <Element width="600rp" padding="rect(10rp,0rp,10rp,0rp)" background="themeable(dtb(CONTROLPANEL,2,0),window)"/>
    </if>
    <if class="wuapp_content_pane">
    <Element width="600rp" padding="rect(26rp,0rp,26rp,0rp)" background="themeable(dtb(CONTROLPANEL,2,0),window)"/>
    </if>
    <if class="cp_content_instruction">
    <Element contentalign="wrapleft" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,5,0,3803)" font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE, 5, 0)" accessible="true" accRole="statictext"/>
    </if>
    <if class="cp_content_v_spacer">
    <Element height="7rp"/>
    </if>
    <if class="cp_content_text">
    <Element font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE, 6, 0)" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,6,0,3803)" contentalign="wrapleft" accessible="true" accRole="statictext"/>
    <PText font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE, 6, 0)" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,6,0,3803)" contentalign="wrapleft" accessible="true" accRole="statictext"/>
    </if>
    <if class="cp_content_title_text">
    <Element font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE, 19, 0)" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,19,0,3803)" contentalign="wrapleft" accessible="true" accRole="statictext"/>
    </if>
    <if class="cp_help_link">
    <Button accessible="true" accRole="link" accdefaction="click" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,1,3803)" font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,1)" overhang="false"/>
    <Element accessible="true" accRole="link" accdefaction="click" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,1,3803)" font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,1)" overhang="false"/>
    <if keyfocused="true">
    <Button contentalign="wrapleft | focusrect"/>
    <Element contentalign="wrapleft | focusrect"/>
    </if>
    <if enabled="false">
    <Button foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,4,3803)" font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,4)"/>
    <Element foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,4,3803)" font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,4)"/>
    </if>
    <if mousefocused="true">
    <Button cursor="hand" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,2,3803)" font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,2)"/>
    <Element cursor="hand" foreground="gtc(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,2,3803)" font="gtf(CONTROLPANELSTYLE,7,2)"/>



    What portions do I have to delete to remove the button while still having the window functional?

    Basically, I want to remove the blue buttons without breaking anything.

    Deleting the blue question mark icon outright from the "imageres.dll" file causes breakage.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers.
