    "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?

    Really I'm not telling anyone to uninstall any of it I am just letting people know that they can if they like get rid of things they don't want or need, they can uninstall what they want and keep what they like. I don't see your protest as a valid point at all. If YOU keep things on YOUR PC that YOU don't use that's up to YOU but for those that don't want some of this lets get rid ehh.

    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.

    After a few days desperate looking for the reason why my PC was continuosly hanging... now I know. I completely agree that it is up to ourselves to decide what we want to have installed or not in OUR pc's, specially when they are the cause of the system crashing... Thank you Bazz!! I

    Removes everything but Store and App connector:
    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | where-object {$_.name -notlike "*Microsoft.WindowsStore*"} | where-object {$_.name -notlike "*Microsoft.Appconnector*"} | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -notlike "*Microsoft.WindowsStore*"} | where-object {$_.packagename -notlike "*Microsoft.Appconnector*"} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online

    You are assuming we are all like you and dont use these apps - a little presumptuous dont you think?
    If we didn't make presumptions when posting helpful fixes and hacks this forum would be a blank space!
    I offer posts based on the assumption that there are some people who have the same issues that I have.
    It seems the original post starter has done the same.

    I uninstalled and removed everything possible on my computers after I installed Windows 10.
    I want an operating system to operate as a platform to run other programs, not as a way for Microsoft to tell me the weather, clutter the place up with childish tiles and other useless 'apps' that just take up space.
    My computer isn't a toy!

    Also - 'bloatware' doesn't mean that it necessarily takes up too much space and/or resources.
    It qualifies as 'bloatware' if it is in the way, is not wanted and/or needed or visibly interferes with the way I like things set out.

    It's bloatware if I didn't ask for it, don't want it and can't get rid of it!

    In my view Cortana is 'bloatware.'
    I've turned it off and minimized it so it's impact is less, but it's still there, like Edge, on my computer when I would rather they were both in a pit of fire near the devil's testicles.

    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?

    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?
