    Some claim the update also resets default apps


    Microsoft rolled out Threshold 2 earlier this week as the first major update for Windows 10 that comes with significant improvements for both the operating system itself and the pre-installed apps.

    But as far as the latter part is concerned, it turns out that Threshold 2 is actually making some changes to the app lineup that some people might not be aware of.

    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.

    Given TH2 is a major update I'm not surprised that the settings/apps are set to the base values/settings. 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.

    Well for one removing apps you'll never use makes lists of apps in apps, settings etc faster and easier to scroll through if they not taken up by junk you'll never use. Not to mention that in fact they will activate themselves apparently since the update not only reinstalled them but also turned them on in settings like background apps etc and so forth necessitating resetting a bunch of apps you won't use.

    Some also just like to be organized.

    Ummm... That's really nothing new. When one does a repair install, also called In Place Upgrade, it re-installs the removed apps too, and this update is just a glorified IPU.

    Is this really an issue? Just take a few minutes of your valuable time to delete what you don't want. Then in about a month or so you will wonder how to get that cool app back with a thread on this forum dealing with this issue. lol
