    No . I didnt miss that childish crap

    The thread is about ' get rid of default apps: confusing situation ' ......... not about your wounded ego .

    Instead of trying and failing to shoot me down because i pointed out that you recomended a piece of bloated crap thats hundreds of mbs as an alternative to a few scripts that are only a few kbs each ....... why not offer something helpfull and / or constructive to this thread .......... and stop posting irelevant and childish egoistic looser crap .

    Yes but this is beyond my current knowledge of PowerShell :p

    That's why I mentioned the source because there are other options that the person can read and use if he doesn't want to remove everything (Example: keep Store).

    I just tried all 4 of those commands with powershell 7.1.4 and the first two produced a barage of red print that said it doesnt recognise the term ' State ' ?

    I havent tried powershell core but inbuilt powershell module in win10 does the job.
    command functions are different in core 7 as compared to that of inbuilt wpf 5.
    + Pwsh7 core is full of telemetry.
    ++ user must be sure powershell integerated scripting engine capability is not removed & enabled there in capabilities section of win10.

    Thank you .

    The same thing happens with windows powershell ........... i think i removed ' powershell integerated scripting engine capability ' with Dism ++ = I'll reinstall the system and start again :) ........ and remove powershell 7.1.4 :)

    Wich raises a question ........... wich removeable things are essentiel to rum win 10 without problems ? = Wich ones we shouldnt remove ?

    Hmm correct question.
    For Windows Optional Features i think user knows which ones to remove or which ones to not.
    For capabilities user must be sure not to remove those set enabled in optional features plus
    [Notepad]
    [Wordpad]
    [Paint]
    [Powershell ISE ]
    must not be removed.
    For Metro Apps user is already known which ones to remove or which ones to not - i suggest removing all including store too.
    Same applies for SystemApps Appxpackages but here no any non removable isinbox app is removed.
    To remove non removable isinbox app theres a script written by myself but its of different scenario n is irrelevant to this thread in win10 subforums of MDL.

    Perfect:clap3:

    Although Out-GridView is simple to use and understand what it does I have no domain about it I can only understand what it does in scripts so that's why I preferred not to mention about it.
    But your script in my view is perfect :)

    No friend the credit is all yours :)

    As according to me : intention is to indirectly say somebody mother a Bitch means the person addressed as "Lying Son of Bitch"
    if it will be addressed as Liar or then anybody can say its meant to be addressed to same person but not his mother. Leave it PL .

    Remove-AppxPackage removes apps from your current user and if you use the -AllUsers switch this removes apps from all currently existing users as well.

    Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage removes apps entirely from the system so that when a new user is created they will not be installed for him.

    If you only use the first command when a new user is created all the apps will be installed for him so to fully purge the bloat from the system the 2 commands are needed.
