How about make a less bloated OS and this wouldn't be necessary. I uninstalled 20+ useless apps after reinstalling W10.

Yeah, I would love a version where all these apps are gone and we could install them from the Windows store IF we wanted them. Many are a waste of space frankly.

Here are a few of OC3Ds guides on removing stuff if you need to.

Disable/remove Cortana

Uninstall Windows 10 Apps

Disable OneDrive and remove it from your file explorer

An OS that is slimline and just focuses on gaming, This is what I've always wished for and not unnecessary fluff that I don't need.

Maybe 1 day

I already did the first 2 thanks . Though I missed the removing OneDrive from file explorer so thanks! It's frustrating that I have to do all this each time I reinstall the OS.

Next time I reinstall, I will write a script to hopefully do all this in one go!
