Windows 10: Win 10 Th 2 Automatically Reinstalls All Previously-Removed Apps
The reason this topic is even being discussed, is the reason why Windows 10 (IMHO) is not worth bothering with.
I agree with those who say, once I delete something, I don't want it back again. Hence, the problem with Windows 10 auto-updates policies, all together. Re-installing a new OS and calling it an update is almost akin to lying to people. I do not see this strategy as enduring people to Microsoft. What Windows 10 has done for me though, IS started me seeking alternatives, perhaps it is better for me in the long run, I was pretty comfortable with all those OLD windows versions, maybe a good kick in the butt is an eye opener I need.
Tried it with my mother-in-law. Didn't work! She keeps coming back.
"You can turn off things to speed up Windows". I wish I could turn off that darn message. You want to help me, don't help me.
On any OS, if you delete part of the OS and Apps are part of Windows 10, then if you reinstall you will get them back. Upgrading or Updating to 1511/10586 is a install. It's going to install the entire OS. How else would you fix OS problems if you couldn't reinstall and expect to get everything the OS includes?
Then Windows 10 should not have been released!!! Windows 10 is still in beta version, that is why every few weeks or months, they re-install a new OS. They wipe their hands clean, by saying "oh, it is free, so you shouldn't complain".
I for one don't like coming back to a machine that is completely changed around every few weeks.
Microsoft has turned Windows into a major pain in the a$$, and they keep trying to shove it down people's throats. Forgive me, I am beyond the beta-stage, what a piece of garbage.

Oh please, those stupid sports and money apps are parts of the OS it can't function without, really? Well if so, then I'm right staying on W7!
slightly off center
Just did the .11 update, non of the ones I uninstalled came beck. I see lots of New in the start menu though, looks like a bunch of apps were updated. So far so good, knock on wood.
Things are fine with my update as well. Most of the update was under the hood things.
That is not what I said at all. I said it's part of the OS not that it can't function without them.
Maybe I should rephrase that to say it's part of the release you are installing/upgrading with? Does that make more sense?
What happened if you deleted something in XP then reinstalled or did a repair install? You got it all back. Ditto with Vista, Win 7, 8 and 8.1. Win 10 is no different.
I'm not usually on Microsoft's side but in this one I don't see how it can behave differently. The installer has to install everything it is supposed to install. If it's already there, replace it. If it's missing, put it back.
Again, think about a repair install. What does it do? It puts back everything that was installed originally. The 10586 upgrade is very similar to a repair install and does the same thing.
