    Script works very well. Recommended
    Even has a GUI so you don't have to modify any of the two included PowerShell Scripts.

    I do not use any of these. I tried WPD and I like it, but mine instance of Win10 is OK without the tinkering with UWP and policies.

    I should have defined what I meant, I don't use many of the features of the ones above, I tend to do it manually as I know what's happening but those above worked for me w/o breaking anything. I don't tweak a lot for fear of breaking down the road.

    Tested Debloater, it always ends as no responding when using Remove all Bloatware after some time.

    Never seen that issue. The Script has just been updated so I would download the new file and try again.

    DO NOT right click the .ps1 file to run the file!
    You must run the .ps1 file in an Administrator PowerShell Window.

    Here is a quick video on how to set up PowerShell to use with any script:


    Try these suggestions and let us know the result.

    That is the issue I guess :)
    cannot be loaded because running scripts are disabled on this system. For more information, see about_Execution_Policies at
    https:/go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=135170.
    At line:1 char:1
    + .\Windows10Debloater.ps1
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : SecurityError: :)) [], PSSecurityException

    It's not important, so I'm not gonna play with it anymore.

    All you need to do is watch the video and it will instruct you on what you need to enter to allow PowerShell scripts to run.

    The great thing about this script is that the Store is not removed so if you ever need to install an MS App, you are still able too.
    You can even revert all changes you have made.
