    I used the version available here, given I'm not a MSFN subscriber.

    I had net 3.5 installed anyway.

    Question, when you removed OneDrive, does it still show up in FileExplorer or when you are saving a file you just downloaded or anything?

    What about the Office Integration of it? Does it remove it their also?

    Microsoft-OneCore-TroubleShooting-Package is the telemetry client
    AllowTelemetry-Reduced is just a registry setting

    leaving all packs unhided will break os eventially
    re-hide them
    install_wim_tweak.exe /h /o /l

    About office I don't have it installed.

    Is it possible to re-add if they get removed this way?

    i don't understand how install_wim_tweak.exe /o /l unhides the packages see the usage yourself
    USAGE :
    install_wim_tweak [/p <Path>] [/c <PackageName> (optional)] [/?]

    REMARKS :
    /p<Path> Use '/p' switch to provide path to mounted install.wim
    /o Use '/o' to run on current Windows
    /c <ComponentName> Use '/c' to show a specific package
    /? Use '/?' switch to display this info
    /l Outputs all packages to "Packages.txt"

    /o points the program to the current working OS

    /p is meant to work with a WIM image (to unhide the packages from the image BEFORE installing it)

    /l just tells to write the package list on packages.txt

    But once te packages are unhidden you can use dism to get the same list.

    If that's the telemetry client then what is Microsoft-Windows-DiagTrack-Internal-Package for?

    One more thing you should restart the computer after executing install_wim_tweak.exe /o /l
    and then remove packages using dism

    Just to add a small note about OneDrive.

    When its removed this way you can also reinstall using the normal installer.

    The normal installer will also bring back the link in This Pc.

    The batch file uninstaller thats around the forums will also remove the normal installed version so I think in fact that the two are exactly the same except its just preinstalled in the OS.

    I couldnt check Office 2013 as I've never used it but the option to open files from it is there and when clicked will offer a sign in box. I dont know how the functionality of it works normally though.

    DISM asks for a reboot when a reboot is needed
