    How can I? I remember it was a DISM.exe command, but do not know which.

    Greetings.

    Thanks you!

    Do you know a list of packages that can be removed safely? To make Windows less heavy.

    This is some of what I disable and/or remove in my offline servicing (I ran into trouble disabling Windows Search in 8.1 offline, so I took this off the list)

    Code:
    dism /Image:D:\mount /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:Microsoft-Hyper-V-All /FeatureName:Printing-Foundation-Features /FeatureName:SimpleTCP /FeatureName:SNMP /FeatureName:Windows-Identity-Foundation /FeatureName:DirectoryServices-ADAM-Client /FeatureName:IIS-WebServerRole /FeatureName:IIS-NetFxExtensibility /FeatureName:WAS-WindowsActivationService /FeatureName:WAS-NetFxEnvironment /FeatureName:IIS-HostableWebCore /FeatureName:MSMQ-Container /FeatureName:WCF-HTTP-Activation /FeatureName:WCF-NonHTTP-Activation /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-MobilePC-Client-Premium-Package-net /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-MobilePC-LocationProvider-INF /FeatureName:RasCMAK /FeatureName:RasRip /FeatureName:TelnetClient /FeatureName:TelnetServer /FeatureName:TFTP /FeatureName:TIFFIFilter /FeatureName:WorkFolders-Client /Remove
    dism /Image:D:\mount /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:Printing-XPSServices-Features /Remove
    dism /Image:D:\mount /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:SearchEngine-Client-Package

    Is 100% safe?? I don't need those features, too.
