When you put in Windows 10 from scratch, some Universal Platform purposes do get put in by default or no less than linked within the Start Menu. That’s true for Windows 10 Home, Pro and even Enterprise.
Microsoft has been criticized previously for pushing video games to newly put in Windows 10 Pro methods. We by no means obtained an official reason why Candy Crush Saga, Seeker’s Notes, or Netflix on Pro methods.
Have issues modified? Tero Alhonen suggested that they’ve. He posted a screenshot on Twitter that confirmed the Start Menu of a Home system set up of Windows 10 Home with out Candy Crush Saga. His screenshot still confirmed different apps, Netflix and Spotify particularly.
Martin Geuss chimed in stating that he still noticed video games being listed within the Start Menu utilizing the MSDN ISO of Windows 10 model 1903. Geuss put in Windows 10 Pro as properly and it too listed a number of video games within the Start menu on first begin of the system.
Paul Thurott lastly put in Windows 10 Pro and still obtained video games put in; these had been listed in a Play group on the system and now not listed individually. Microsoft modified the format of the Start Menu within the May 2019 Update, and that’s most likely the explanation why.
Time to seek out out what’s going on
I put in a recent copy of Windows 10 model 1903 on a check system and created a neighborhood account that I used to register. The Start menu of the working system was divided into two teams of apps referred to as Productivity and Explore.
Some choices displayed only a obtain icon and the hover textual content “an awesome app is on its method” at first. It took some time for the apps to turn into obtainable.
The Productivity group listed Office, Mail, Microsoft Edge, Photos, Weather, and a gaggle with Outlook, Word, Excel, OneDrive, PowerPoint, and OneNote purposes.
The Explore group listed the Microsoft Store, Spotify Music, Netflix, Microsoft News, Xing, and the Play group with Candy Crush Friends Saga, Microsoft Solitaire Collection, Candy Crush Saga, March of Empires, Gardenscapes, and Seekers Notes.
Some video games weren’t put in however did set up as quickly as you clicked on the icon within the Start menu.
Devices with Windows 10 Home or Pro installations will get video games and different third-party purposes whatever the chosen account kind. The solely exception to the rule is that if the Pro model is area joined; video games will not be listed in that case.
Enterprise and Education methods get solely productiveness apps, and there are mechanisms in place to show these off as properly.
There could also be regional variations as properly with reference to apps and video games that do get put in on Windows 10 gadgets.
It is straightforward sufficient to take away these from Windows 10; simply right-click on particular person apps or video games and choose “unpin” or “uninstall” from the context menu. Windows 10 model 1903 comes with choices to unpin a whole group of apps as properly within the Start Menu by right-clicking on the group title.
I feel that Pro methods shouldn’t come with video games or leisure apps by default, however that’s simply my opinion.
