    Just to add something I recently discovered. CCleaner's uninstaller section appears to list the built-in apps and can uninstall them.

    Indeed but from my testing they can only be uninstalled one at a time ? - as opposed to say taking out all the *bing* apps with one powershell command

    Some months ago I spent time uninstalling (or trying to in some cases) all unwanted apps from 2 laptops and a tablet.

    Just installed the AU and most of them are back again, so now I get to do it all again. What fun, especially on the tablet which is not the easiest machine to use Powershell commands on.

    How foolish of me to hope MS would actually respect my choices regarding the apps I actually want to use in the AU.

    At least I didn't get the FB app back again though, so not all bad .
    Interesting - I am waiting too for the AU to start with a "clean" sheet as I had trouble trying to uninstall apps for all users if the account used for powershell command did not have the particular app installed

    As always, thank you so much Brink!

    I did remove the apps doing the instructions 1-by-1.
    Only later I read that it would be possible to paste the complete list of instructions into the Powershell window, so as to have them all gone in just at once.
    A little like option 4, but then you have slightly more control, but I believe option 4 removes all, except store.
    but pasting a list of commands, e.g. 10 or 15 one may select which ones to keep.
    Obviously I couldn't test that anymore.

    But maybe that is already covered somewhere in long thread...

    Anyway, thanks again.

    Brink, I tried to use powershell commands to remove certain apps according to this thread. But it doesnt work. I tried to use this command to remove Contact Support:
    remove-appxpackage Windows.ContactSupport_10.0.10586.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy

    But this doesnt work. Instead I get this error below. I was told that I need the Win 10 Anniversary Update. Is this true? How can I remove this app:

    Hello tsunami and xlook,

    Default system apps used by Windows like this one cannot be uninstalled, and is why they are not listed in tutorial. Removing these system apps could make Windows unstable.

    If thats the case, how do I at least hide these unwanted items from the start menu? I went to this folder to see if I could hide these items. But I didnt find any items there:
    C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Application Shortcuts/

    I also went to and couldnt find any programs there:
    C:\Users\x\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    I have checked the option to show hidden items. I dont understand why I'm still not able to view any items. Maybe Win 10 made changes against this tweak?

    Also, how can I raise items like, file explorer, settings, power, and all apps, higher along the start menu? Theyre placed too low.



    --------------------------------- E D I T ------------------------------------


    I found the directory at:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    I found my programs listed. But I'm not able to find items like Contact Support. Where can I find this elusive app at?

    And also, dont forge tto help me with raising those items in the start men: (file explorer, settings, power, and all apps). Theyre situated too low.
