Win 10 Installed apps


[link to this post]
 
Nowadays I expect an OS to have preinstalled apps,
But let the user easily remove them without having to use Powershell.

Microsoft are doing this so they they can charge for them at a future date even though they may be free downloads now. See my rant here.

Edit: Ah! You mean that they are there but you can only remove them with Power Shell? I really must have a play with Win 10.

It's not the age... it's the mileage.

I just couldn't see a simple way of removing certain apps like Weather, Xbox

I believe that you only need poweshell for removal of the core apps, right click on the start menu should generally offer an uninstall option for general (or whatever they call them) apps.
