We are beginning to role out Windows 10 Pro into our domain. Because this is a workplace environment, I would like to create GPOs that will remove the tile panel and remove some of the apps that we feel are inappropriate for the workplace. Apps such as xBox, LinkedIn, Groove have no place in our workplace. I would also like to remove the Tile Panels to give a look more similar to Windows 7 and avoid distracting apps such Sports, Weather and Games.

I would like to create a GPO that will check for and remove these apps and apply the GPO to machines rather than users. Basically, anytime a domain user logs into Windows 10 system, these apps will be removed.



Alternatively, if these apps can be permanently removed from all users and assured that they will not return upon new build releases would be acceptable.

Any help or information is appreciated.
