Install Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Bloatware Free Edition now

Bloat

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is due to begin its rollout on October 17, but if you want to install it right now, and without joining the Windows Insider Program, you can.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Bloatware Free Edition isn’t an official release from Microsoft -- it’s a special edition built using the MSMG Toolkit v7.7 and the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM Build 16299.15. As you can tell from the name, the Bloatware Free Edition removes a lot of unwanted extras from the OS.

The release includes integrated DirectX 9, and applied Metro skin to the Windows Photo Viewer.

The following features have been removed:

  • All Metro Apps except Store, Calculator, Sticky Notes and Xbox (the latter was not removed to retain the proper functionality of the Windows 10 Game Mode)
  • 3rd Party App Links
  • Connect App
  • Maps
  • Telemetry
  • Skype Video App
  • Contact Support
  • Cortana
  • Windows Embedded Features (removes packages related to Custom Shell, Device Lockdown, Keyboard/Registry Filter)
  • Geo Location
  • Home Group
  • Mixed Reality
  • Quick Assist App
  • Take a Test
  • Windows Defender

Once installed, you’ll need to enter your Windows product key in PC Settings > Updates & Security > Activation > Change Product Key in order to activate it. You can use the OS without activating it of course.
