    I just reinstalled Windows and am dealing with the bloatware.

    While it's possible to do this manually using PowerShell, I recall there was a nifty 3rd party app that would display all the preinstalled crap that Microsoft shoves down the users throats like TikTok, Disney+, Prime Video, etc and allow you to easily remove it for all users.

    Unfortunately, I can't recall which one does it for all users, not just the currently logged in admin account (and I use a standard account for my day-to-day tasks).

    I might even have it still in my downloads folder, but there's over a hundred things in there and I'm not sure what I'm looking for. It might even have a cryptic filename.

    So, any suggestions on something with an easier interface than combing through this list and manually creating a batch file or running it from the command line?

    OK, I found there was a message size limit on this board, and including the mess I was talking about puts me over it, which is exactly why I wanted something that can just show me a list and ask me what bloatware to uninstall.
    Note that most of the stuff is not bloatware, but I restored a Win10 backup image and then updated to Win11 and got the bloatware I want to get rid of again. I was planning to make a new backup image after Christmas, but at least I have last month's incremental backup of the vital data files.
    I just lost a lot of saved games as I don't usually back them up as critical files.
