A new Windows 10 installation typically exposes consumers to some pre-installed Microsoft apps and services that may have just changed. With the release of the latest Windows 10 19H1 preview, which was created on October 17, Microsoft has some customers remove more of the pre-installed Inbox App Bloatware from their PCs.
All pre-installed third-party games and apps may already be installed removed from Windows 10 – including Candy Crush – but some Microsoft In-Store inventory apps can not easily be dropped. The new 18262 Preview Build now enables quick and easy deletion of core material apps such as 3D Viewer, Calculator, Calendar, Mail and Movies & TV, 3D Painting, Snip & Sketch, Sticky Notes and Voice Recorder.
Microsoft's removal process is as simple as right-clicking on any of these applications in the Start menu and selecting Uninstall, or visit the context menu in the All apps list. Previously, the only standard removable Microsoft apps were the Solitaire Collection, My Office, OneNote, Print 3D, Skype, Tips and Weather.
Although these apps are small in size, this is a welcome change for consumers. Make room on their PCs. It's also good for those who are not using these Microsoft apps or have found better third-party alternatives downloaded through the store.
This preview build also includes some other new features for Windows 1
Only beta testers running Fast Ring or Skip Ahead Windows Insider builds will see all the new Windows 10 features today. These could probably be introduced in April after the end of the beta test for all consumers. Registering in the Windows Insider program is easy, and all you need to get started with these new Windows items is to click on some menus and restart the computer.
Windows insider builds are usually unstable and features are known to be removed before full public release for consumers who are not registered in the program. While a small feature, such as the ability to remove pre-installed apps, is likely to be the deciding factor, it is sometimes difficult to predict which insider features will bring it to final release.
