    Toolkit folder > Bin\Lists, look for appropriate windows version list to see the templates. I use the toolkit helper one.

    Open toolkit.cmd in a text editor and search the package name in the template list to see a more detailed name. Example "echo. %C_CEIP_SQM% Customer Experience Improvement Program ^(CEIP^)".

    Sometimes the package names don't match the "extended name" given by microsoft, but once you see the "extended" name of the component from toolkit.cmd, you can search online about what it does. A fair bit of them are documented. One I still wonder about is "FileHistory" Is this the properties menu tab for files called "Previous Versions" which looks at previous versions of a selected file from windows restore points?

    Hopefully that's what you meant, I struggled with this a lot, looking at the toolkit.cmd was very helpful when trying to research.

    The Package name is correct, the underscore in CEIP_SQM is breaking the for loop used to split letters "C_" from component name, will add a workaround for it.

    No, no, I wasn't saying anything was wrong with it. I was just telling them how to see the specific names of component packages in the package template list. I haven't noticed anything wrong with it. I am going to switch back to the list method this time around though.

    If you're going by the list templates there isn't an explanation for each component, which I think adds to their confusion, but if you open toolkit.cmd you can see the associated names with the packages. No worries bro. :) (Seeing the names in toolkit.cmd makes it easy to research the components.)

    Hope all is well.

    Only components that are safe to be deleted are added for removal, CloudExperienceHost needs to be removed on live system.
    Removing Windows Defender will remove the SecHealthUI App.

    no, unfortunately it was cloud, and not only in sysapps, any cloud files T__T
    yeah, i do many try already and cant find witch files can be deleted safe, becouse it have many. in sys32,wow64 etc....
    i see you already try to find it too? and find that is no way? or you try only folder in sysapps?
    so i delete defender...but in my case it remaind.
    but i already kill it manually as i find that only cloud was a problem.

    Sorry don't know what cloud app you are referring to.

    CloudExperienceHost is in SystemApps->Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy, you can remove it only after the OS Installation.

    If you use the Toolkit's Remove Windows Component->Select Windows Components->System apps->Windows Defender, this will remove SecHealthUI App.

    If you try to manually remove defender outside the Toolkit using DISM, you can't remove it since it doesn't have proper package for SecHealthUI App to remove.

    It's a bad way of removing components, many components files do have similar file names but differ in their file hash.

    You can edit the 64-bit images with 32-bit OS too.

    [G] - Select the Components to be removed using [Remove->Remove Windows Components->Select Windows Components] menu.

    [H] - Remove the selected Windows Components using [Remove->Remove Windows Components-> Start Removing Windows Components] menu.

    First you need to select the components to be removed using the Select Windows Components menu, where choosing a component will toggle the +/- sign prefixed in the menu indicating whether the component is selected, - means the component is selected for removal.

    Then navigate to previous menu and choose Start Removing Windows Components menu to remove the component.
