    Hi,

    is it possible to remove some of the live tile apps (permanently) in an offline mounted image?

    E.g.: The weather, finance, travel or sports app?

    Tia,
    Highend

    Right, I tried that on an already installed Win8 (via /online switch) a few days ago. All commands were executed successfully but after restarting, all live tiles still existed on the metro start screen.

    Now I did it again but for an offline image and installed that one afterwards -> Works without problems, all live tiles (apart from the store, desktop and IE 10) are gone.

    The online switch does not remove it from user profiles if they have already logged in and have a profile folder at 'Users\%USERNAME%' before running it, but does work on all new user profiles created after removal.
