Windows 10: Rubbish installed with Windows 10 Pro (Disney games, Candy Crush)

    Rubbish installed with Windows 10 Pro (Disney games, Candy Crush)


    Is anyone else annoyed about all the crap that comes pre-installed with Windows 10 (Pro)? I assume people must have complained but Microsoft doesn't care? I realise some people got their OS upgrade for free but I paid for my Windows installation (and got the "Pro" version (what's professional about this?)) since I built a new computer and the ordeal of setting up my computer after re-installing Windows is made worse by having to remove a plethora of utter rubbish. It's genuinely insulting to have this childish nonsense pre-installed on my machine, like Microsoft assumes I've got nothing better to do with my time.

    Superuser has a great article that explains how to list all the installed packages on your PC. You can then use the package name their PowerShell script provides to selectively delete the ones you don't want. Yes, it's a PITA, but it can be done. How to Remove Windows Store and other Universal Apps in Windows 10 Pro - Super User. There's also a comprehensive TenForums tutorial on this subject from our own resident Wizard, Shawn Brink: Uninstall Apps in Windows 10 Apps Features Tutorials
    Check 'em out! And FWIW, I agree that it's odd that MS chooses to install such stuff on the OS, but I also understand that they get paid to do it, so for them it's just another source of revenue.

    Hello THX1138, :)

    These would be the suggested apps that get automatically installed unless you turn off this feature.

    Unfortunately, you will need to uninstall any suggested apps that already got installed.

    Unfortunately, turning off automatic installation of suggested apps is per user, or HKCU and not HKLM basis. Any ways to do this on the HKLM basis?
    TIA...

    PS: Rubbish for one might be a treasure for another... there is that...
