Any simple way to automate Windows control panel and other settings?

Can anyone please suggest a simple way to automate doing some various basic config in Windows 7 & 10 like:

- set power plan in Power Options (control panel) to High Performance
- set Communications in Sound CP to "Do Nothing"
- set Visual Effects in Performance Options under System to "adjust for best performance"
- set the Time Zone under Date & time
- disable Enhance Pointer Precision under Mouse in Control Panel
- set all three sliders in Keyboard in CPanel to Short/Fast/Fast
- set certain services to Automatic like the SSDP Discovery
- change various new settings in the Windows 10 Settings like disabling Notifications, Game Bar and Focus Assist

Those are examples of some of the CPanel/Settings i need to do on basically every computer i install/reinstall so i would really love a way to "one click" the whole process.

I have tried googling the various related topics but in the vast majority of cases the methods i saw were very complicated and way beyond my knowledge.
I am hoping there is some simplistic GUI tool that can make a batch/script or something similar that doesnt require an advanced knowledge of Powershell or Regedit.

Thank you for reading and helping out.

Since it's 10 it will auto install the correct drivers so one way would be to use the latest build, unplug your internet, complete the install, apply your settings and either use a 3rd part tool or use Windows built in system image back up tool to simply make a mirror image of what's currently installed. Since it had no internet it will not be able to update or download any drivers so you can re-image that copy onto any other build, activate and update.
If you don't want the forced updates or you want to disable undesirable "features" that are set by default, I recommend O&O Shutup 10.
Been using it instead of having to make custom stripped .ISOs, great tool.
