Product Name: Remove Windows 10 non essential apps

Description : An Agent procedure to remove the 'unremovable' apps from Windows 10. Apps included in this procedure: Xbox, Office hub, Solitaire, Finance, News, Sports, Weather. Once run you may need to move the remaining tiles to fill in the gaps.

Instructions :









Import the Procedure via either the Import Center or through the Import Folder\Procedure option in the Agent Procedure Module.  Once available the procedure can be scheduled directly or alternatively called within another procedure via the executeProcedure statement.

The procedure will give the user if not already escalated Admin permissions for 5 minutes to run the uninstall and then will drop the escalated privileges.

    This script helped me out ALOT! thnx!
    However, is there a way to run this silent? now it reports on the desktop, and thats not always handy.

    Just be careful when running the script. If you are logged in with an account that has admin rights, this script will remove those rights.

    I agree with the above comment (Alvaro Pleitez) -- I ended up causing quite a rush at my desk...

    This script is outdated. There are many more and different Win10 apps bundled currently.
    Additionally, the script can run as system (Kaseya agent default these days) to remove some apps system-wide, but there should be another section to run as the logged in user to remove other apps. Uninstalling apps as user should not require admin rights.
