Group Split Threshold for Svchost.exe in Windows 10 Creators Update

If you have upgraded your tablet or computer to Windows 10 Creators Update and your machine has sufficient amount of memory, the Details tab of the Task Manager lists a huge number of instances of the svchost.exe process (more than 70 processes) and the services are not grouped at all.
