    Clean Install W10 - Says to Debloat before User Profile Created?


    Hi All,

    I've been reading some of the Win10 debloat tools.

    Windows10DeBloater says: "This script should be ran before a user profile is configured, otherwise you will likely see that apps that should have been removed will remain, and might find broken tiles on the start menu."

    How is it possible to install Win10 without creating a user profile? Doesn't the "Local Account" approach still create a user profile?

    Well that tools says "stop Cortana from being used as your Search Index"
    - whatever is that supposed to mean? Cortana is not a search index. Those terms are completely incompatible.

    Bear in mind that
    a. Since 1903 the function of Cortana has changed completely, as has its implementation.
    - with which build is this thing compatible?
    b. Cortana in 20H2 has nothing to do with search anyway. So why the reference?
    c. I can't see a full list of changes.. which scheduled tasks? Why?

    Hmm... if you have problems after using it, please don't ask people to fix things.

    Anyone know how to run Powershell scripts during a clean install and before any user profile is created?

    Power Shell scripts to do what?
    You said you want to Clean install on the used 2018 Dell Optiplex.

    Yes. Audit Mode. When you get to the first screen after a reboot during install, press CTRL + Shift + F3
