Windows 8 Metro Apps removal - Group Policy

I need to create a group policy or script which will enforce the removal of unwanted Windows 8 Metro Apps.

Please could anyone suggest the best approach to this.

Thanks

I'm not sure if this is available natively over GPO but you are able to use PowerShell cmd-let for that (Remove-Appx-Package). So, you are able to create a logon script and use it with GPO to uninstall required modern UI apps from those Windows 8 machines.

Just atke a look at this page where you can find an example
