I don’t entirely understand some of what you are asking. Re the downloads, are you talking about update settings in group policy editor?
There isn’t a utility to get rid of apps, but you can do this using Windows powershell, which is a kind of sophisticated command line interface.
Try typing “powershell” into the Windows search box. When the result appears, make sure you run as administrator using the context menu.
A command prompt will appear.
Now, you can execute a command to remove all the built-in Universal style apps. However I would not do this. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like them either, but there are a few of them you may end up needing. In particular, getting rid of the Windows store could have some negative consequences. So, here is the list of apps and their respective commands. Trash away!

Subject: [jaws-users] windows 10 questions
Hi. tried googling for this, and could not find any good advice. Using windows 10 64 bit pro 1803. And so now when I go to the group edit to then set for windows downloads to notify me and to then ask to download, says this option is disabled, even though I enable it. Also I cannot uninstall the built in apps. Is there a utility to do this, as don’t want calender, mail, groove music, etc. also on the security and windows updates, it keeps showing me the play windows 10 intro video and what’s new. Is there a way to hide those controls.also when I login narrator speaks and jaws, when I login, thought I had set narrator to come on, but now it doesn’t any help.
