    Call me lazy, but I want to delete all of the apps on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 with a double click. How can this be accomplished with a .reg or .bat?

    There is Option to " Remove everything " your system which only leave windows os, you can try that option

    Go to Settings > Change pc settings > update & Recovery > Recovery and select Remove Everything, it is safe and sound instead of using a reg or bat file which may remove microsoft components which in turn make user system unstable.

    Or,there's always the simplest solution - to just 'waste' 10 seconds Ctrl+LMB'ing all the unwanted apps and then clicking 'Uninstall' ;) .. It's not that time consuming and I sincerely doubt the OP is doing a large enough deployment that those seconds add up to something? :)

    Here you go.
    You're welcome.

    Keep in mind that there are a few apps like the metro calculator and file explorer that get removed as well as they're considered store apps.
    This doesn't affect the desktop calculator or explorer.

    It's just a cmd script that runs powershell commands to remove the apps.
    I recommend reading it first if you are wary of powershell stuff.
    To run it, just double-click it or right click and run as admin.
    Either method will be elevated with admin privileges.

    What is File Explorer? And does this also remove IE?
