    Apps & Reliability (or lack of)


    Hi, This is addressed more to Microsoft than the Forum at large:
    My Reliability Monitor would be running at 10 most if not all of the time if it weren't for those terrible Apps. It makes the Reliability Monitor look like a Snakes & Ladders Board with a preponderance of Snakes.
    I only use about 4 Apps and the rest, where possible I have uninstalled only to have them reinstalled without my consent by 'Updates'. Hardly a week goes by without one or more of these unused Apps failing.
    When are Windows going to allow us to remove Apps we don't want and/or also make them more reliable?
    I like my Windows 10 and would give high marks if it weren't for the appalling Apps.

    Thank you, I've just done so.
    Matter of interest; the Map App I uninstalled yesterday was attempted to be auto re-installed today by Updates and failed.
    These things really need Microsoft's urgent attention; they are a blot on the OS.

    The way I use it is simple: ignore the Win 10 start menu and Cortana except to check occasionally they are working.
    Don't fiddle with Settings beyond a few basics.

    Use Classic shell as start menu replacement (Win 10's start menu fails to express a traditional hierarchical start menu usably or usefully).
    Change the appearance to get pastel backgrounds and title bars.
    Replace about 77 icons with win 7 icons (using a program).

    Use Win 10 after the fashion of Win 7- normal desktop programs.
    Support with disk imaging and system restore on, + daily scheduled restore point.

    Thanks for that:
    Actually I use my PC as W7 with all frequent icons on Taskbar and only venture into Start for the Weather App. I seldom if ever use any other App. However I find not infrequent 'failings of Apps' in the Reliability Monitor even though not used.
    As stated earlier even removing Apps doesn't work as Windows reinstalls them again uninvited.
    I may well give your suggested method a try it things don't improve.
    Thank you.

    Despite the above, there are some interesting apps available via the Store (free too).
