How to Remove Windows 8 Bloatware

If you’re a Windows 8 user, then you’ve likely encountered bloatware on your computer or tablet.

Bloatware includes pre-installed software from your manufacturer as well as Windows. Most people won’t need to use these programs at any point, which is why they’re called “bloatware”: they bloat your system and slow it down.

Today, I’m going to show you how to quickly and easily remove Windows 8 bloatware from any tablet, laptop, or desktop PC:

Step 1) Go to the Start screen and type PowerShell

Step 3) Type this command into the PowerShell application:

Removing bloatware from Windows 8 is surprisingly easy. As far as I know, Windows 8 is the only operating system that lets users wipe out all preinstalled applications with a single command. Not bad!
