Hi All,

I'm looking for a way to just back up the personal setting in Windows such as pinned shortcuts on the taskbar, auto screen off duration, file explorer quick access shortcuts, pinned Start Menu, etc. I just want to back up the setting, not the installed software.

Thank you
 
Regarding pinned items:
Regarding the screen timeout: https://www.minitool.com/news/windows-10-lock-screen-timeout-009.html

I believe a Microsoft Account can back a lot of these up, but otherwise it looks like everything you want will have to take some digging around in either the Microsoft folder somewhere in AppData or in the registry.

If this is something you do often, I'd recommend looking into scripting to automate this.
