    Thanks for the instructions. While I don't have optical drives anymore on my pc's anymore, I have often wondered why they opted to have their OS not play DVDs by default. It is most likely licensing, but it seemed like quite a fundamental task.

    Interesting. I had wondered if it was possible to "transplant" Metro apps from one machine to another, especially the special ones that aren't in the store.

    This seems like piracy to me though, since it's normally a $15 app... but if the mods allow it then OK :P

    I wonder if you can do the same trick for promotional stuff not in the store, like the OEM apps that come with laptops and stuff. Don't ask why I want to do that, it's mainly a proof of concept so I can set up a virtual Windows 10 with all the OEM stuff on it, imagine having Dell, HP, Samsung, Sony etc all fighting over whos demo app runs first

    The first time I logged into my ASUS Laptop with my Microsoft account, all the preinstalled junk Apps were immediately added to "My Library" under my account in the Microsoft store. I'd like to get ride of most of them but can't. I can uninstall them from my PC, but there is no way to remove the entry for them in the "My Library" section.

    hey @alphanumeric

    Just an idea.

    Are you able to remove the apps from within your MS account (by logging in)? I know you can remove devices but don't know about apps.

    I don't think you can. I have that same problem. Stupid games like Candy Crush in my account that I've never installed ever...

    No, you can't, that's my beef. Most of those Apps listed there, I never ever used and immediately uninstalled the first time I logged in. Same deal if you try an App, and don't like it. You can uninstall it from your device but its forever yours in My Library. My Library is almost useless for me now, its littered with junk I'll never install again making it a pain to find the few I do want and use.

    Yeah I was just about to post that. I had a quick look-see and it's not possible. I've even got multiple entries for a single app that I have never used and don't want!!

    Ok, so it looks like MS takes the same approach that Apple takes. You cannot remove downloaded apps from Apple account or MS account.

    Interestingly, only Google Play allows the user to remove apps from their account.
