    Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package-AutoMerged-net~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-GB~10.0.10240.16384
    Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package-AutoMerged-net~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.10240.16384


    as you can see above each package is doubled for example minikernel is amd64 en GB and amd, question is can i safely remove every package that is doubled like for example out of those two
    Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package-AutoMerged-minkernel~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-GB~10.0.10240.16384
    Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package-AutoMerged-minkernel~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.10240.16384

    remove

    Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package-AutoMerged-minkernel~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.10240.16384

    or i need both of them for windows to work ?

    Does it really matter, not like those packages use up much space anyway.

    The one with en-GB is MUI. Both work together.

    Ccleaner can be used to remove such duplicated file from a system.

    Not necessarily. But normally, keep or remove both.

    Yes. You can use the 'File Finder' section to do that. It is under 'Tools'.

    @Hadron what I'm trying to find out is if I remove one of those very similar packages will windows brake up or not? I have use usa windows iso and because of I choose UK it probably installed gb extensions for each package and I was wondering if I can safely remove one of those

    From experience, I have been able to remove exact duplicate copies without having any problem with my system.

    Most or all AutoMerged packages are essential for system

    @abbodi1406 are you saying that if I remove gb extensions of those packages on the first page my windows won't work right?
