New to Win 10 (and this forum). Recently obtained a Dell XPS laptop. Nice little laptop, but Win 10 ... well, it's gonna take some getting used to.
Found that Candy Crush, Minecraft and one or two other time-and-space-wasting bloatware programs were pre-installed. First tried right-clicking on the programs in the Windows menu and clicked uninstall. Seemed to work but, a little while later, they were back. Tried uninstalling through the Control Panel - no luck.
After a some web searching, configured the Windows Firewall to disallow traffic to/from Windows Store. Then I uninstalled via the right-click method. The programs haven't returned.
And I've since responded to a System Update message, and have downloaded the update, so critical updates appear to be making their way.
Can anyone advise whether there may be undesired consequences of effectively disabling the Windoze Store? Is there a better way to banish bloatware?
