The Windows store is fairly dead with most apps barely being maintained or updated. Most of the time they cause more problems than they fix and lack features that make them beneficial.
    The Apps I have got installed from the store have been updated several times since I have had them downloaded and installed, so how can you put that.
    I look and maintain several OS both home and pro, and at home and offices and shops, all have got something they need from the store and all have up to now been kept up to date.

    The proof is in the pudding. The Windows Store is probably the most inadequate app store I've seen when it comes to reliability and features. Both the Android store and even Chrome's web store makes it look like child's play. Look at the reviews on most the apps, it's pretty telling. Hardly an opinion when the majority are constantly leaving negative feedback. It's like the Google+ of app stores.

    They may be updated but the majority are still broken or don't provide a complete product. The Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, and Reddit apps are a complete joke and clunky compared to it's Android counterparts. Even Ebay realized how terrible it was and pulled its own app from the store.

    I guarantee I can replace all those store apps you use with a superior desktop/droid/browser app that provides a better experience with less lag/bugs. You guys really love tooting their horn despite the apps being fairly clunky and providing a mediocre experience. If you had a history with truly amazing apps from other app stores, you wouldn't be singing their praises. They have a long way to go before they are even considered half as great. Any reputable source wouldn't put them in the same league.

    So instead of hating on the OP when he is providing others with the means of deleting this stuff off their PC, you guys could have just moved on with your negative opinions. No one is asking you to delete the apps, but others aren't so gullible of leaving what they find useless off their PC's that Windows didn't even provide the ability to remove.

    The whole point of this is that I should be able to choose which apps from which vendors I wish to use. I use Lightroom and Photoshop, why would I ever want Microsofts photo viewer. There is no question that it is inferior to what I use. It may well suit another users requirements perfectly, and that is their choice.
    And that my friends is the whole point:- Individual Choice.
    Likewise I do not use my PC for games, so why should I need Xbox.

    The greater the number of apps running on a machime the greater the chance of a conflict, and I beleive that is what I have experienced. It is not possible, nor reasonable to expect Microsoft, or any other software vendor to absolutly guarantee that there will be no problems or security issues. There are too many PCs in the world for them to test all the software permutations for conflict. Maintaining a system without unnecessary apps is easier than trying to find what is causing the issue with one laden with unnecessary processes. Remember many of these apps demand access to areas of the O/S.

    The latest update rendered my EOS software inoperative, caused my audio to dissapear, and caused a crash on my Mach1 cnc software. Fortunatly it was not running a process at the time. Because windows just shut down my system at about 8PM on friday, the implications of a terminated program under those circumstances could have cost many hundreds of pounds in machine damage, and possibly injury throught flying peices of metal!

    The android and google app stores have been mentioned, and this is also a case in point. I needed a GPS app for my android phone. There was a large number to choose from, I tried about three of them and then purchased the one that suited my requirements best. In short I could choose what I waned.

    Hi there

    Clean install windows from Media creation tool fixes all this.

    The only time |I'd imagine you get a load of totally unnecessary Bloatware is if you buy a PC from any sort of computer store with Windows pre-loaded.

    However you can always download Media creation tool and re-install these days.
    Backup your system FIRST though - you might want to set back to the "Factory State". Don't use the supplied recovery option but use something like FREE MACRIUM to image the HDD. Image ALL the partitions including the generally hidden recovery one and save on external HDD.

    Cheers
    Jimbo

    Gosh. I didn't think of that.

    Perhaps I should remove the weather app in case it causes a hurricane.

    Thank you for this list. This bloat ware causes issues in virtualized environments. We are trying to remove every unnecessary process so they do not have a chance to eat up cycles and increase CPU ready time.

    This is my own method I run
    https://gallery.technet.microsoft.co...-apps-65dc387b

    To remove the apps I do not want from the install.wim file if you want to get windows 10 iso then goto
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 on a linux machine this will let you choose what version and language you want

    the iso has the install.wim create a bootable usb using the Windows 7 to USB you can then run the powershell script on the install.wim file to remove the apps you do not want.

    If you use the sysprep guide on this site you can disable a lot of settings via GPO before finaly finishing the install - for a nice clean minamilist OS

    I understand why MS is including adverts and trying to upsell other products - however I agree with the OP I should have the option to turn this off or not install it during the instalation - I dont want games, I do not need a Twitter or Facebook app, there are tons of websites to check the weather or the news, I use VLC for playing videos and musicBee for my music, I do not have an XBOX, I am happy with the standard app for skype it should be called anoyanceware.

    I want the OS to do my work and run the applications I choose not to offer me stuff I don't need. Just like I don't like TV adverts or adverts on websites.

    Since I first used windows 1.1 it has come along way windows 98 was ok, Windows 2000 was great, windows media was omg - Vista wtf - Windows 7 I am tempted to go back to no adverts but lacks some support for newer hardware :-(

    Another utility I use is O&O ShutUp10 which blocks a lot of other non essential stuff from running.

    Considering, that removing built-in apps might cripple the Windows, I wonder, if it is worth the effort?!
