Bloatware-free Windows 10 at Major Geeks

While I can very much get into the spirit of having something like this downloadable Windows 10 Creators Update Bloatware Free Edition Read at Major Geeks, there are certainly more than few dangers that go along with it even if it is does allow "legal" activation of the operating system. I would not suggest downloading this. That said, the team that put it together gives you total insight and instruction into building your own bloat-free version of Windows 10 that you can make at home.

MSMG ToolKit creates a slimmed down, or bloat free Windows by customizing, adding or removing features and components as well as enabling or disabling features to Microsoft Windows 7, 8 and 10. Everything is done through a DOS command prompt but done with typing in letters to get where you want meaning no complicated DOS commands or DOS knowledge is needed. The entire goal here is something we have always loved here at MajorGeeks; creating a lightweight, bloat-free version of Windows. Expect to spend a small amount of time getting everything you want the way you want it. You can also restore most things that you remove, should you change your mind later.

While this document is a bit old, it is still one of the go-to procedures that we use after installing a virgin Win10 OS for hardware testing. Some things have changed in terms of the overall steps, but the bones of the document are still good. And of course, when Windows gives you the chance to turn off all that crap right before the install finishes, make sure you do that.
