1. what have you used that would auto-delete all all bloatware in-built apps?

2. for what you use, does it removed the in-built apps & bloatware forever? or would win10 install them again in an update?

It is impossible to answer that question without some clarity as to what you consider "bloatware."

 

If you want to get rid of the array of useless software that many OEMs pack on to machines then an easy way to do that is  Doing a Completely Clean Install of Windows 10.

 

If you're unhappy about what is included as part of Windows 10 that you don't use, there are ways to delete app packages, but they're likely to reappear as feature updates are rolled out.  They really don't matter much and just take up some disk space if you don't use them.  

 

Two things you should always do as soon as possible on any "fresh" Windows 10 machine is to go through the Privacy Settings and the settings regarding what apps are allowed to run in the background.  You can keep virtually all of the Win 10 apps you don't use from being run in the background, and my experience is that these changes are retained when feature updates are applied.

Check out PCdecrapifier, you can down load it from this site.  It only can be used on a fresh install.

What PCdecrapifier removes is the extra crap unrelated to the system that is many times stuck in by various vendors.

Hi, well Brian is right, you need to have a purpose in modifying Windows ten, in our vast  array of managed systems some are modified because they are not really able to run a modern win 10 system, these mod's limit the usefulness yet still provide the basic needs of the user.

 

The other and more important reason is to harden security, this depends on the threat level, and determines the necessary response level. However these modifications do not effect performance.

 

If you have a current machine designed to run windows ten, having extensively tested modifications to improve performance, we can find little to no advantage, my advice is to relax, enjoy your computer and do not touch it.

Just want to mention that uninstalling apps which you do not like is rather pointless from a space, and performance issue.  Just right-click on the app in the start menu, and select unpin from start.

This is the best answer.
