Windows 10: MS Apps OK to Uninstall?

    MS Apps OK to Uninstall?

    Are there any (pre-installed) Microsoft Store apps that I should keep (i.e. might be *dangerous" if removed)?

    I realized some have the Uninstall button disabled in Settings - > Apps/Features. I guess I'll leave those. Of the rest, I don't really see anything that I think I'll be using. Thanks.

    If they don't give you an Uninstall option, keep those. Otherwise, uninstall as you please.
