Windows 10 Start Menu & Taskbar Layout with PPK Provisioning Package

In Windows 10 1703 you can distribute the start menu layout with a provisioning package.

First customise the start menu tiles. Below is an example of what I have done

Then we can export the layout with PS:
Export-StartLayout -Path “C:\imagestore\StartLayout.xml”

Lets also include our Taskbar layout to this XML.
Edit the XML and include <CustomTaskbarLayoutCollection>

Next we need the Windows Configuration Designer Tool (WCD) to create the provision package.
This is included in Windows ADK 1703.

Follow the steps to create the PPK Provisioning Package under Refs PPK below.
