Windows 10 image

Windows 10 Pro in enterprise image.

We are trying to create an image of windows 10 with no games and no tiles for any profile. Unfortunately, I am not being successful with that. Would appreciate, if anyone can point me the right direction to remove the pinned tile option from the start menu in windows 10 base image and any new profiles created after joining the domain.

Regards,

Ajoy

Please read https://jkindon.com/2018/03/20/windows-10-start-menu-declutter-the-default/ which offers scripts to do that. These need to be adpated for any new version of win10 as app names change.

If you are certain that you won't be using store apps and you don't mind missing out of some of the features, you can use LTSB version which does not have an App Store etc.
The only gotcha with ltsb is it's got to be bare metal from the start.
It cannot be an inplace upgrade from any lower rev OS.

Correct. But I would use it in this situation
You would think going from Enterprise 7.8 or 10 to Enterprise ltsb would have been a no brainer.
But it is M$ after all.

To Microsofts credit, LTSB is their answer to the above frustrations, however many organisations don’t have access to LTSB, and some simply want the latest code base available.
Just note that the author of that article followed that process for two reasons
  • No access to LTSB
  • He wanted the latest build features
