    Here is something I recently used to 'treat' my PC OCD.
    On 20H1 (and maybe even earlier) ... open the "Accounts" Immersive Control Panel "explorer ms-settings:yourinfo"
    If you're using a local account, try to change your user account image. You might find that you're blocked.
    The fix is to enable \Microsoft\Windows\Shell\ CreateObjectTask

    The system apps you remove are NOT installed when you install Windows after using Optimise Offline, just the app folders are not deleted is all, which makes little difference on most systems, they take minimal space. After I check my running Windows, the apps removed are not installed at all.

    And if you see my earlier post about W10UI integrating updates, they don't get reinstalled after installing the latest CU if you follow that method.

    For the Action Center to work, you need the "WpnUserService" service enabled.

    Even though I remove Windows Defender (Windows.SecHealthUI), I still have the occasional program that won’t run and it seems Defender is flagging it as Malware.

    Does this mean Defender is still running in the background?

    Heads up! Before you spend hours reading about the parameter configuration documentation and waiting for the build to finish.

    The output of this tool removes the... what is it called.. the autoruns-like-a-CD feature of the original ISO.

    I was trying to use the ISO to upgrade. It seems to be just the flashable/bootable kind.

    On the OP, first page of the thread is the tutorial, and no, it can't be used in an already installed Windows.

    But I beleive improving the O-O to be Multilanguage-compatible is not an "insane" task for the expert.
    Probably integrating part is a stop-factor. Removing (the most interesting) part should be universal.
