  • Bott: Win10 apps – which are worth keeping, which should you dump?

    Posted on April 22nd, 2019 at 10:41 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Over on ZDNet, Ed has a succinct roundup of major pre-installed Win10 apps and what you should do with them. Ed’s verdict:

    “Sponsored” crap apps – delete them immediately
    Internet Explorer – once a browser, now a relic, only worth trashing
    XPS Writer – wuzzat? Thumbs way down.
    Office (cloud based free version), OneNote, OneDrive, Skype – optional
    Groove Music, Movies & TV – put a fork in it
    3D whosit, whatsit, wheresit, Mixed Reality – off with their heads

    Take a look and tell me what you think.
