    Thanks, I would use none of these. I also used the Add/Remove Windows Features in Windows 7 to get rid of everything in there. Anything like that I can use to remove more features in W10?

    Also how do I pin the programs I most use to the left side of the Start Menu? All I seem to be able to do is put them as those annoying tile things. I get a red circle line when I try to drag them over and the pin option puts them as tiles. I removed a lot from the left side when I first used it (think it was items like calculator, X-Box etc. tand other useless to me things) how do I add my own programs I frequently use instead of ones I never will?

    The op by his opening post "This is how to uninstall the Bloatware that came with windows 10, most users won't use this chit." is trying to instill his opinion that all the apps listed are either bloatware or sh*t. Maybe if he worded his post a bit better he would get a better response.
    I agree.. if that "statement" wasn't included in the OP then the thread would be fair.. sort of. All he's doing is hiding the apps and not removing them.

    DISM elusive


    BillGates said: View Post
    that's only hiding the app..
    to truly remove it use DISM.

    Code:
    DISM /Online /Get-ProvisionedAppxPackages | select-string Packagename
    DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:**PACKAGENAME**
    FYI: you can't remove Cortana & Cloud Experience.
    whatever DISM is the windows opens up for a fraction of a sec and then disappears....
    lets assume I can open it what am I supposed to do next?

    Help?

    Are you typing that into your search box or something? You should open a console window first... then it stays open.

    Likewise, you do need to change the part where he puts **PACKAGENAME** to be the actual package you're trying to remove.

    "Bloatware"? You do realize these apps are *TINY* and do not take up much disk space at all.

    I also wouldn't call having a photo viewer "bloatware" or Biometric security "Bloatware" or a weather app (the single most popular app in all of windows 10 with nearly every user) "bloatware".

    It's simply not responsible to tell people this without telling them what the consequences of doing this are. Such as, no longer having the windows store, or having the map application.

    Another thing, MANY people are really interested in the XBOX live streaming capability to play their XBOX games on their PC, and you just binned that for them as well.

    So claiming that most users won't use any of those apps is bit presumptuous, don't you think?


    Not all of the 'bloatware' is tiny, while they are not taking up a significant amount of space, some of them are not
    all that tiny. Out of curiosity I just checked settings, and found that the 'twitter' one (unused, like the rest of them)
    is squatting on 11.8 MB and 'mail & calendar' is taking up some 4.59 MB.

    I use Windows 10 without using a single app that MS has installed, have done so since installing Windows 10
    last July. Have no interest in them. Never used them in win 8 or win 8.1 ...

    Only time I notice they are still there, is when MS updates them, or when MS tries to set one of them as a
    'default' app when it 'updates' windows 10. When MS tried that with 'photos' for a second time, I simply
    uninstalled 'photos'. (no longer asked now, what I want to use when I click on a photo)

    I think that if you take in consideration that 11.8Mb and 4.5.9Mb are very tiny when SSD's and HDD's are measured in GB's.

    The only people I see needing to do this are the ones who get laptops with 20Gb SSD's.

    Agree, but I accept others like to have a cleaner/neater HDD...
    Personally, I just ignore the apps, unless MS bugs me to use them as a default app, then
    I feel like wiping them out...

    Everyone to me has the right to remove what they don't want or ever intend to use. The only issue comes into play when updates are made from MS and all of those apps are back. It's best to have an automated process so this will not become an issue.

    As someone who has used several versions of Windows since the late 90s', I would still like to have the choice
    when it comes to updates (as we used to have) of refusing an update. Critical updates I accept should now be
    automatically installed, but as regards features, drivers and the like I would like to know what MS is installing,
    and have the option to refuse the update...

    As for apps, nagging, forcing users to use them as a default and the like is a bad idea, if MS wants users of its
    other versions to install Windows 10, once its no longer a freebie. Personally speaking, the Universe will be
    dust before I would ever consider using an app.
