    Yes, I must have the app that nags me to install an Office 365 trial that I don't want. It keeps coming back.

    Yes you can turn notices off, but they don't stay off. This is the third time since I have installed Windows 10 in late July that it has turned the notices back on. The notices popups appear on the lower right side of the screen, usually after I have used LibreOffice. Hmmmmmmm, it must be watching what you do and the hit you with the nagging popup. I'm happy with the free office and it meets my needs. Leave me alone Microsoft, I really don't want to pay you monthly for an app I don't need. You're not making any friends by turning the nag screens back on.

    A post on reddit reveals that Threshold is resetting the default apps on Windows 10 computers that are installing the updates, although such a change isn't mentioned during the setup process.

    But at the same time, Threshold 2 also reinstalls the apps that you previously removed, such as Xbox and Edge, all of which come with the operating system. Windows 10 ships with a series of pre-installed apps, and users can remove them with PowerShell commands, but after installing Threshold 2, all of them are brought back on your PC
    I would imagine this includes all the Privacy Settings as well as Bandwidth Sharing. If this is the case MS should at least inform the user that these changes have taken place in the setup process but I am sure they won't cause they don't do it the first place with Express Setup. Another example of MS doing what they want as opposed to what the user wants. A version of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" With MS, recommended means what's best for MS, not the owner/user of the device.

    I still wonder why anyone would remove things that they have no intention of using. It's not like they're taking up much space or going to suddenly activate themselves.
    Just like most material things in life, if I don't want it, don't need it and likely won't ever use it I get rid of it by donation if practical. Doesn't matter if it takes up much space or not, I don't like clutter and I am not a horder in my home, car or my PC devices. If by chance somewhere down the road I need/want something I discarded then that's my problem but that has rarely ever happened.

    Exactly.. but some just want to delete things I guess.
    You have the tweak artists of yestayear swearing this makes their machines 0.03 seconds faster which they can see. It also decreases the oh so precious 1TB of storage space by a whopping 50 or so megabytes which could be critical down the stretch

    Yeah, I not one for deleting base or core files/apps as well. If I don't use them, I just hide or disable them if such a feature exists, otherwise I leave them alone if they don't bother me.

    As for the new Threshold update, yeah, I'm not, or wouldn't be surprised, if things got reset or reinstalled being this is basically a new OS. In that vein I would highly recommend anyone taking this update to recheck your settings and stuff.

    Actually on a clean install of 1511 the default apps are 870MB.

    It is trivial to remove the ones you don't want with PowerShell but they do take a significant amount of space on a small disk.

    They take bandwidth usage (data), being regularly updated, not to mention CPU usage and such, I had to enabled Windows Firewall back, just to keep Store apps updated, even though I never ever use them, because those failures caused my system to lag.

    With the Upgrade Apps where reinstalled, telemetry changes reverted. That took a lot of my time to set things straight. (Oldcodger with basic computer skills)
    As for the few MB space I saved from uninstalling Apps, negligible sure, but the space I saved by getting rid of Windows.Old files folder that reappeared after it was deleted on the previous version, was not negligible at all.

    I just setup a new HP business pc that came with Windows7 (downgrade rights). I had not realized TH2 was out, so did a clean install of Win10, setup as needed, then found out while doing Windows updates that I would be doing an 'upgrade' to 1511. Another 45 minutes of upgrading, and I have to uninstall various apps again- Get Office (already installed, btw), Skype, and other various unwanted apps. I also found an HP app of some kind, which when run was trying to advertise some monitors or something. This was a clean install, drive wiped, no HP stuff of any kind, so I'm not sure how I end up with an HP app in the start menu.

    Every time I setup a Win10 pc, I swear I have to uninstall these apps about 3-4 times before they are gone. For each user.
