    I don't understand people defending those useless apps. You want a reason to remove an ad for Office 360? Please give me a reason to keep it on my PC! Is it doing anything useful for me? No? Then why the hell is it on it? Same with all the other money, sport, etc. apps. Anyone really thinks these are core parts of the OS? I think that if I want this junk off my machine, it's my decision to make, not anyone else's.

    Of course, I'm not using W10 an any of my work machines, I'm just playing with in on a test machine out of curiosity, but these things just keep convincing me to stay away from it otherwise.
    The point I was trying to make was/is that I don't see the reason for removing apps that I don't use. They don't get in my way or bother me one bit. But, that doesn't mean that I'm trying to tell anyone what to do with their PC. Heck, if you or anyone wants to remover them.. go ahead and do it.

    Just keep in mind with each update like TH2 they will likely come back and you have to remove them all over again. If I were you I would try to automate the removal process as much as possible.

    Try to change all of the titles in Windows 10 to "Windows 9" or "Windows 11". You can't because Microsoft doesn't want you to do that.

    But you can remove or disable apps. Microsoft built in those options so the user could change those. So if someone wants to use that option that Microsoft built in to customize Windows 10 to their liking, what's the problem?

    I have no problem with what yo do to your PC. Seriously.. I don't see the need to remove the apps but if you or someone else does then remove them.

    foreach ($app in $apps) {	
    	Get-AppxPackage -Name $app -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
    	Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -Online | where DisplayName -EQ $app | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online
    			
    	$appPath="$Env:LOCALAPPDATA\Packages\$app*"
    	Remove-Item $appPath -Recurse -Force -ErrorAction 0
    }

    @lx07, nice work and I agree if you have a small SSD then removing those apps does make sense.

    Try running winver from the command prompt and you should see version 1511 build 10586 if you have TH2.
