This is a great tool ....

Before you run .. Create a RESTORE POINT ...

Then this is what I "disable" ...  there are still a couple I keep enabled .. but, all of these settings / configurations are useless ..... especially telemetry ... the "bloat" is useless ...

Don't disable One Drive if you use ....

These are the preferred settings I have used to "disable" these useless "services" ….

Plus you can use this tool to install other software if you want ...

I have used NotePad++ for years and years

VLC Media Player

Virtual Box

TeamViewer ( I have servers in 3 locations and it is a good tool  .. I use now and then )

NETCloud Desktop

Anyway it is a pretty simple way to download ...

Also....

If you want a great file synchronization tool to replicate directories, data or files across multiple PC's

A very informative post.  Thanks for posting @code_slayer_bkk

I am going to start a new thread with it in the computer section as I think it will have interest and possibly discussion.

Just remember, debloating is not a set and forget. Every W10 "feature update", twice a year, will reinstall all that you remove.

Other updates may also reinstall PUPs.

 

Plus it eats into memory just like when you update smartphone software.

IIRC, you need Win 10 Pro to be able to turn off updates. That's what I have installed and have updates turned off.
