Clean up Windows 10 - remove useless apps (Powershell script - run as Admin)


#
#
#PURPOSE: Eliminate much of the bloat that comes with Windows 10. Change many privacy settings to be off by default. Remove built-in advertising, Cortana, OneDrive, Cortana stuff (all optional). Disable some data collection.
# Clean up the start menu for new user accounts. Remove a bunch of pre-installed apps, or all of them (including the store). Create a more professional looking W10 experience. Changes some settings no longer
# available via GPO for Professional edition.
#
#DISCLAIMER: Most of the changes are easily undone, but some like removing the store are difficult to undo. I encourage you to research these changes beforehand, and read through the script.
# Each section is described with comments, to make it easier to see what’s going on.
#
#
#INSTRUCTIONS: For best results use the following how-tos. Running from an existing profile on an “in-use” machine won’t affect any already-existing user profiles and won’t give the best results.
# Read through the script to see what is disabled, and comment out anything you want to keep. By default a transcript is saved at SYSTEMDRIVE\WindowsDCtranscript.txt.

#***Switches***
#
#Switch Function
#—————————
#No switches Disables unnecessary services and scheduled tasks. Removes all UWP apps except for some useful ones. Disables Cortana, OneDrive, restricts default privacy settings and cleans up the default start menu.
#-AllApps Removes ALL apps including the store. Make sure this is what you want before you do it. It can be tough to get the store back. Seriously, don’t do this unless you are 100% certain.
#-LeaveTasks Leaves scheduled tasks alone.
#-LeaveServices Leaves services alone.
#-AppAccess By default this script will restrict almost all the permissions in Settings -> Privacy. This will prevent that from happening.
#-ClearStart Empties the start menu completely leaving you with just the apps list.
#-OneDrive Leaves OneDrive and Onedrive for Business fully functional.
#-Tablet Use this for tablets or 2-in-1s to leave location and sensors enabled.
#-Cortana Leave Cortana and web enabled search intact… if that’s what you really want.
#-Xbox Leave xBox apps and related items.
#-NoLog Don’t copy transcript to systemdrive\WindowsDCtranscript.txt.
#-AppsOnly Only removes apps, doesn’t touch privacy settings, services, and scheduled tasks. Cannot be used with -SettingsOnly switch. Can be used with all the others.
#-SettingsOnly Only adjusts privacy settings, services, and scheduled tasks. Leaves apps. Cannot be used with -AppsOnly switch. Can be used with all others (-AllApps won’t do anything in that case, obviously).
