i am using VMware Optimization tool for my master image,
from the tool when selecting to remove the windows 10 default apps , it only remove these apps from the master image the deployed image still have the default apps.
so its not removing the apps for future users.
I would suggest removing all apps following the guide below. You will need to do this with -allusers parameter.
In my experience, removing the apps caused stability issues in Windows 10. We ended up using Windows 10 Enterprise edition that doesn't have these built-in apps.
