does win 11 support 3.5” floppy?? :)
Do 3.5" floppies still exist ?? :D
Yes, and yes.

Probably.
Definitely. I use them regularly. Windows 11 support of legacy devices is actually better than Windows 10, which is one of the reasons, I like 11.

I used to disable a bunch of services on 10, not anymore on 11
I still do and will never stop. There are a ton of services that exist and run that do not need to be there.

Discord, the Asrock Updater thing
Turn those off. They should not be running unless you're actively using them.

Maybe, ASROCK is the malware!!!!
Funny, no.

What?!? Win 11 can disable updates? Like the home edition?
Oh yes. You have to do it right, but it can be done.

You can use a basic script to always set updates off. Somethingiin batch would look like

:start
Timeout 30
Net stop wuauserv
Goto :start

Please note, that at 60 seconds, Windows update will start, download updates, and install them. 30 seconds is a safe timeout in my experience.

If you're ok with Windows 10, LTSC2021 is near optimal. I like the improvements and changes made to 11 so I go through the hassle of a deep clean after install. Keep in mind though, even LTSC is not perfect. Still requires some tweaking to make it optimal.

What improvements do you like? I have not tried w11 yet or read change log so I’m a bit clueless.
