This Windows 10 Setup Script turns off a bunch of unnecessary Windows 10 telemetery, removes bloatware, and privacy invasions. Not guaranteed to catch everything. Review and tweak before running.

# Tweaked Win10 Initial Setup Script
# Primary Author: Disassembler <disassembler@dasm.cz>
# Modified by: alirobe <alirobe@alirobe.com> based on my personal preferences.
# Version: 2.6.1, 2017-08-02
# Primary Author Source: https://github.com/Disassembler0/Win10-Initial-Setup-Script
# Tweaked Source: https://gist.github.com/alirobe/7f3b34ad89a159e6daa1/
# Tweak difference:
#
# @alirobe's version is a subset focused on safely disabling telemetry, 'smart' features, and 3rd party bloat ...
# ... while retaining win10 defaults + security features. Aim to be suitable for end-user rollout.
#
# If you're a power user looking to tweak your machine, or doing larger roll-out..
# Use the @Disassembler0 script instead. It'll probably be more up-to-date than mine:
# https://github.com/Disassembler0/Win10-Initial-Setup-Script
#
# Note from author: Never run scripts without reading them & understanding what they do.

Nice work! There's also operating systems that actually come without bloatware, telemetry and Candy Crush Soda Saga, which users of this script may not have heard of and may want to look into. One such operating system is known as GNU/Linux, of which there are lots of different distributions to suit the user's needs. And since most of the software written for these operating systems is free, you can modify it as you please, and change the system to work best for you. It's great, check it out!

Free not means open source. And open source does not mean open for modification.

Free means open source but open source doesn't means free.
Btw the point of open source is to be able to modified by everyone aka. open for modifications (unlike free software where you can also redistribute your modifications).

Self-correction: I think these are the two PowerShell one liners that will help you find all of the bloatware (and my result on Windows 10 Anniversary Edition as of 2017 Jan):

I don't like this after change, how can I reserve this :( help me please!

Love this! Too bad I already switched permanently to Ubuntu

You Linux people... "How 2 fix Windows? Use Linux!" Thanks. Doesn't help in the slightest.

SuddenFX commented Jan 8, 2017

"Love this! Too bad I already switched permanently to Ubuntu" From one spyware company to another....you marvel you.

All linux distros have tracking software built into them. Your browsers phone home by default. Your OS search gets handed off to Amazon. Tracking cookies get installed without warning. Your authentication services use Google and Fakebook. Hell even your package managers are now tracking you. Your IP stack was designed by NSA. Get off your high horse. You are superior to no one. Canonical has already sold you out to Microsoft.

rebrec commented Jan 17, 2017

Thanks for this amazing resource, you made my day !

So do I just save this into a text file, rename the extension for a VB script (What extension would that be?) and remove the # for anything I want the script to remove or add? This is extremely helpful but I wish there was some kind of GUI to help remove the extra Microsoft junk that came with windows 10. Also, what does a provisioned app mean? I find that term a lot when searching on how to remove all these useless extra apps. Thanks!

@EricWZimmerman .PS1 is the extension you're looking for, in case you haven't found it already.

@dinhlan300 Sorry!
it's possible to reverse this by going through the file, commenting out whatever is uncommented, and uncommenting the 'undo' lines under those.

I would not recommend doing this if you're not super comfortable with what you're doing. Ask for help doing this from someone who administers computers regularly, it should be a 10-15 min job for them. Save a copy of everything you run.

alirobe commented Feb 9, 2017

@SuddenFX too right haha. See FreeBSD, QubesOS, or Debian for real freedom. Windows or macOS for the real world.

hey dude how to use and update this? and can I use SQL server, visual studio, vmware and clipse java neon normally when activated this? sorry I'm just start to learning

Updated to latest version from @Disassembler0, with minor tweaks.

@swbsf no worries, but thank @Disassembler0 for doing all the hard work! I'm really just copying him :)

alirobe commented Jul 29, 2017

@vannessqn, yes, I use those regularly. It all works fine. Usage guidance can be found here: https://github.com/Disassembler0/Win10-Initial-Setup-Script

alirobe commented Aug 1, 2017 edited

Updated again, after my pull (change) request was accepted, making my minor tweaks dasm0's code unnecessary.

So as of today, I'm now only using the tweaks variable on dasm0's code.

I recommend getting the latest code from him in the future, rather than referring to this fork.
