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

(Apologies, this post is actually a duplicate I'm new here and couldn't figure out how to move it)
