Delete Metro Apps from Windows 10

November 9, 2015 by The Man

If you work in a SME and have had the pleasure of Windows 10 you’ll know that Metro (yes I know it’s not called Metro anymore) apps can be a pita and seem to have huge updates at regular intervals. 120+ mb per machine (no WUS for these apps yet) can take up a lot of valuable bandwidth and let’s not even get started about the security concerns. Indeed these apps seem to be designed with individuals in mind but not companies, I don’t want to log in with a Microsoft account just to update and secure these apps. So let’s just delete them.

That should fix at least one of the problems with Windows 10.
