    Triple Boot Windows 10 IP Build 17040/Windows Server 2016/Debian Sid

    I just tried to boot into Safe Mode to run tweaking.com and 16215 GSOD (no I didn't bother to get the MS .sys file that failed).

    I actually believe, but don't expect, an apology for this build. Clearly releasing a build which has C++ errors during the install is beyond the pale.

    I'll restore from my most recent backup if I can. If not the next release will be an from a clean install of some build I haven't decided upon .

    I am not aware of "Our Tube" - is it an alternative to YouTube?

    Modern folk don't realise how lucky they are......maths is simplified by the use of engineering calculators, or by typing in search on a computer.

    In my youth reference data charts, logs were the way to go, anyone remember the hand held Zeus Unified Edition,? at that time these were standard reference for engineers.

    Not only does following your instructions completely remove (uninstall) those apps, it also makes it if not impossible but at least extremely difficult to get them re-installed if you change your mind, not to mention that it makes it impossible to get new apps because your list also includes Windows Store.

    If all you want to do is to remove a tile from Start, right click it and select More > Unpin from Start. The PowerShell cmdlet (fancy geek word used for PS commands) Remove-AppxPackage as told in post I quoted above removes the app in question, uninstalls it from your PC.

    Powershell ISE:

    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage *3dbuilder* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *windowsalarms* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *soundrecorder* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *bingweather* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Aggh - this is totally dumb. Typical post from somebody who does not understand consequences.

    This is not removing tiles - any tile can easily be removed. This removes app entirety. Many have found that they cannot reverse it. Anybody reading this who is tempted to use above commands - do yourself a favour and make an image backup first. Better still don't bother - they use little space and do not impact performance.


    Edit: just noticed @Kari's reply which says much the same thing!

    Perhaps a MOD could move Mike's post to the Windows Insider thread, where it would be far less likely to be seen and taken as newbie advice. With a caveat to the un-aware. Cleanup here as necessary.

    I agree a causal forum reader, especially new to Windows 10, could easily take this the wrong way.

    Windows 10 x86 14383 Insider Pro and Core 10240

    I look at the title of this thread:

    Insider Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build...

    It's not a "Newbie" thread - on page 80-something of cutting-edge alpha-beta Windows 10 OS previews.

    If someone screws up their Insider build thru following something posted here on this particular thread, they've escaped Microsoft screwing up their system already with the last build update, and they know the score.

    I ain't going to follow the posted instructions by any individual unless I wanted to obtain the same results they have.

    If I was unsure, I'd ask the poster regarding my uncertainties.

    The entire computational power used on each of the manned Moon missions was *less* than what's in a current scientific pocket calculator today... Amazing exponential growth in both capacity and processing power. All hail the slide rule! In my day if you couldn't use it you couldn't hope for an engineering degree--and, if you used a pocket calculator it was considered cheating. Today the calculators are *required.* Amazing. Won't be long until people become experts on computing but forget how to think.
