So I'm working on creating a reference image for myself and some friends. The idea was to debloat windows as much as possible. I figured out how to do most of what I need through trial and error, however, there are a few last changes that I just can't seem to figure out.

1. Is it possible to turn off the "most used" section in the start menu in audit mode? Because windows is not activated I can't just use the settings to disable it.

2. Can Cortana and Settings be removed from the 'all apps' list? I know they are system apps, and I don't want to remove them entirely, just the icons.

3. Is it possible to remove the folders: "Contacts", "Favourites", "Links", "Saved Games", and "Searches" from each user? No matter what I do a few come back most of the time it seems to be "Favourites", even system hiding them doesn't seem to work.

That's really about it, any help would be much appreciated :)
