Toggle Windows Test Mode and Kernel debugging

I use Windows Test Mode and Kernel Debugging from time to time, notably to use or debug that TrackPoint driver of mines.
However the other day I needed to use Fortnite for a project I'm working on. Turns out it fails to launch mentioning the following issues:
Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Kernel Debugging enabled
Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Windows Test-Signing Mode not supported
I guess Epic enforces that to deter use of aim bots and other cheat programs.

To disable both Test Mode and Kernel debugging run the following commands from an admin console:
Code:
bcdedit /set testsigning off
bcdedit /debug off

You will also need to restart your computer. Any unsigned driver you have installed will stop working after reboot.
Luckily they will start working again after reenabling Test Mode.
Code:
bcdedit /set testsigning on
