    Do you want to remove systemapps from 22000.51 build ie appxpackages.
    i have a solution for that as systemapps removal tweaker for this build.
    if concern is regarding something else then pl ignore my msg.

    yea i would, if it wont re-appear on new users
    then its great
    also non running in the background ...

    do u know which process is installing those appx
    like dismhost / trustedinstaller install packages / updates

    but those apps are not familiar to me

    Brother Pl wait till 1-2 hrs as i am on mobile.
    i will share that script from my pc here within 1-2 hrs.

    It will first drop triggers from srdrepository then will set nonremovable policy to 0 & then will execute user grid view powershell command to remove appxpackages.
    main tweak is to drop the triggers that were applied by M$ to isinbox for packages removal.

    Brother Just Select the AppxPackage you want to remove & Click OK.
    Next Time Recheck you wont see it in List.

    Especially Recheck is there because of hard coded [Windows.SearchApp] which left when we remove Appxpackages according to our Needs from online installed system so in recheck when we slect this searchapp it will be removed too.

    Edit :
    MicrosoftWindows.Client.WebExperience can be removed but after we remove it WU wont function properly & will result in a error when trying to update windows via WU. if its not a issue we can remove this app too.

    Thanks & Regards,
    [COIN]

    Brother i have already edited one of my previous comment & stated :

    MicrosoftWindows.Client.WebExperience which is [GetStarted] can be removed but after we remove it WU wont function properly & will result in a error when trying to update windows via WU. if its not a issue we can remove this app too.

    05/30/2021  03:40 AM             8,192 WebHost.winmd
    it might be related to widgets

    AppxManifest

    <Application Id="WebExperienceHost" Executable="WebExperienceHostApp.exe" EntryPoint="WebExperienceHostApp.App">
    "); vertical-align: bottom; height: 10px;"><uap:VisualElements DisplayName="ms-resource:WebExperienceHostAppName/Text" Square150x150Logo="Assets\GetStartedMedTile.png" Square44x44Logo="Assets\GetStartedAppList.png" Description="ms-resource:WebExperienceHostDescription" BackgroundColor="transparent">
    <uap:DefaultTile Wide310x150Logo="Assets\GetStartedWideTile.png" Square310x310Logo="Assets\GetStartedLargeTile.png" Square71x71Logo="Assets\GetStartedSmallTile.png"/>
    <uap:SplashScreen Image="Assets\GetStartedSplashScreen.png"/>
    <uap:LockScreen Notification="badge" BadgeLogo="Assets\GetStartedBadgeLogo.png"/>
    </uap:VisualElements>


    i thought with modding AppxManifest i could get something
    doesnt appear to change something or break it all
