Remove Unwanted Windows 10 apps powershell script

Windows 10 have too many apps etc in the ENT/EDU editions so I made this script to clean them out. Some "modern apps" in Windows 10 is very sticky and refused to be properly removed. That is why some of them are still there after this script has run.

Instead of making a custom image I use a scheduled task that will run this script on startup if the registry key (added last in the script) does not exist. You might want to change the key name to suit your company better.


=== SCRIPT BEGIN HERE ===
<#
.SYNOPSIS
Removes unwanted Windows 10 modern apps
.DESCRIPTION
Use "Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online" to get installed apps and then att the base name to the AppList
Make sure you strip away the version information and just use the base name for the apps.
The script will search for the currently installed full name.
