    Q's after Upgrade

    new W10Home user asks,
    Upgraded W8.1 today with Media Creation Tool (to lock in license).
    Lots of switches to Off and lots of bloat, ....I'll never use.
    Q1: anyway to remove Scan with Windows Defender from context menu.

    Norton has control for me.
    Q2: any free program to find and clean up W10 bloat. I'm picking away at apps and services and scheduled tasks and such that I'll never use. Be nice to have a program to scan and report W10 items/bloat that M$ will allow uninstall.
    For example, if I could I'd remove Edge, Cortana, XBoxOne, OneDrive, CEIP, Bing Rewards, "apps", Store, etc.
    I thought Custom Install would satisfy most Off switches. I'm still finding a lot of Settings needing Off.

    I thought W8.1 was bloated. W10 is bloated++.
    P.S. what's with the blah W10 theme....
    Thanks in advance

    I see this thread is now solved.
    Did Shawn's tutorial work for you, and everything is ok ?

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
