Revo Uninstaller Free can uninstall windows apps as well as third party apps. After Revo completes the uninstallation, be sure to select scan and remove all leftovers that Revo finds

I tend to not uninstall Windows components. Instead, try to Disable them via
Services: I do that for a few of the annoying ones.

I think what you have to delete is anything Xbox related. Windows itself will allow most but a few seem to be deletable via CCleaner.

^^^^^THIS! I totally agree. This is the way I go, too. I never have understood people's obsession of stripping out stuff they don't use from Windows when disabling is easier and quicker. It's much safer, too. One never knows on down the road what dependencies will pop up that will be subject to stuff people are so keen on uninstalling.

Yes it is in there... It's on the "Windows Apps" tab.
And yes... I have a picture for that. :D


You see the Xbox stuff... down near the bottom on the left side of the pic? The "Before" side? :-)
This pic just shows the before and after of MY "Windows Apps" tab.

I went on a "debloating" mission... with all guns blazing. :ufo:

00000 REVO Junk Removal.png



But you're right about CCleaner... it's not in there.


I believe I have removed all the Windows Apps that you can remove without hurting anything.


It's been almost three years... and everything works fine.
So... you probably shouldn't mess with the things I didn't remove (on the right side of the pic).
Well, Paint 3D is optional, but it is a handy little App for creating 3D images.

And... when you uninstall something with REVO... make sure to also run the "scan for leftovers". :-)

Hi Chris,

I use the DISM method: In Command Prompt (as administrator) type in the commands below:

Code:
DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.Xbox.TCUI_1.23.28004.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe

Code:
DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.XboxGameOverlay_1.47.2385.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe

Code:
DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay_2.622.3232.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe

Code:
DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.XboxIdentityProvider_12.50.6001.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe

Code:
DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.XboxSpeechToTextOverlay_1.17.29001.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe

I hope the above works for you.

Kind regards,

tecknot

If I was stuck with a laptop that only had a 64Gb eMMC drive I would strip out as much as I could. ;-)

I never have understood people's obsession of stripping out stuff they don't use from Windows when disabling is easier and quicker.
Because most of this stuff keeps running, even when it is disabled, and it can cause issues like leaks or crashing.
For example GameBarPresenceWriter.exe keeps running and "optimizing" when xbox is uninstalled/disabled.

Of course but if you don't play any games it's just useless software.

^^^^^THIS! I totally agree. This is the way I go, too. I never have understood people's obsession of stripping out stuff they don't use from Windows when disabling is easier and quicker. It's much safer, too. One never knows on down the road what dependencies will pop up that will be subject to stuff people are so keen on uninstalling.
In my case none of what you are saying is true.I have removed everything including Edge,Xbox. you name it it's gone. Window has no problems after up update, after update. Sorry but their are to many nay says on here. If you want to remove stuff then back up first. if what you do screws up then reinstall from your back up.

Of course but if you don't play any games it's just useless software.
I removed everything I could that had Xbox in its name. I think I did it with Revo.

For example GameBarPresenceWriter.exe keeps running and "optimizing" when xbox is uninstalled/disabled.
Shouldn't that be visible in task manager because I don't see it.

Less crap
Yeah i get that...but is that all? After doing that all you gain from it is being able to say, ive less crap installed? Seems kinda pointless, Although im not one to preach about what i do. I took off 1 dot of rust from a piece of metal earlier on, 0.1% Less rust, the strength and integratory of my metal is gonna be insane now ive done that! And ultimately..LESS RUST!
