A Fully Customizable Future Awaits the Windows 10

Time to Remove That Bloatware

Something really exciting is shared by Microsoft. The company announced that users will finally be able to remove bloatware from its Windows 10, in 2019.

While Slow and Release preview was available to Windows Insiders and changes were made based on user feedback, there is still a long way to go before the troubled OS is fixed. But Fast ring and Skippy testers had access to a new build of the 2019 version of Windows 10 – 19H1.

Windows 10 Build 18262 has finally added the ability to uninstall more preinstalled Windows 10 apps. Users can remove apps like 3D-Viewer, Mixed Reality Viewer, and more. Here is the full list of Windows 10 apps you can remove.

  • Calculator
  • Calendar
  • Groove Music
  • Mail
  • Movies & TV
  • Paint 3D
  • Snip & Sketch
  • Sticky Notes
  • Voice Recorder

These Windows 10 apps presented the option to be removed but it was a hassle. Only power users were able to remove these apps as they had extensive Windows 10 know-how.  An average user had to go through a plethora of steps in CLI before these apps were pushed out of the system.

It is already possible to get rid of Solitaire, Skype, and Weather. But for now, users won’t be able to uninstall Edge.

Microsoft tried to make sure they release a much better browser and while Edge they made improvements but the browser just never took off for some reason. So it would be great to have the option to remove it from Windows 10.

The latest update also features a troubleshoot function which gathers diagnostic data from the PC and suggests various fixes. Last but not the least, Microsoft’s Windows development team has warned users that this is an in-development build so you may experience some issues when using this new build.

You can download the build right now if you are a Windows 10 Insider.
