    Hi can someone advice of how to remove links to not existing apps? I have removed most of Microsoft junk. But some crap shortcuts remainded for example I have movie file and when I right click on open with it will show me windows media player some other player I installed and Microsofts none existing movie player shortcut, how o I remove it?

    The same about start menu I have removed apps but icons remain in start menu, how do I clean start menu?

    Another thing, is it possible to make start menu all apps look like similar to Windows 7? Atm it shows letter and they're big you have to scroll a lot to find the app you're looking for is it possible to make icons in start menu smaller by for example tweaking registry?

    And another thing.

    Do you know what's runtime broker service? Do I really need it? I tried to disable it but it starts by itself I could remove it from under second os just need to know what's that

    Do you know what's tile data model server? Is it server responsible for tiles in the start menu? Any chance of safely removing it?

    That's all for now :) hope someone can help a bit thanks

    Do Yamicsoft Manager for Windows 10 / Context Menu Manager cannot help you?
    Or maybe also Service Manager, also from Windows Manager 10.
