I would disable web browser options to store passwords and form data. With multiple people logging into lds.org, google, etc., those account credentials should not be stored on a multi-user, (somewhat) public clerk computer.

How did you uninstall OneDrive? When I click on "uninstall" it takes me to "add/remove" programs, but it's not listed there. Some of the others seem to have "uninstall" grayed out.

I was wondering too. Apparently you have to do it through the group policy editor.

Looks like there's a way to remove Xbox too via PowerShell. But I'm starting to wonder if it's all worth it. I just don't understand why they don't create a more suitable image.

To uninstall use the process outlined in "How to Disable OneDrive and Remove It From File Explorer on Windows 10"
http://www.howtogeek.com/225973/how-to-disable-onedrive-and-remove-it-from-file-explorer-on-windows-10/

Or to just turn off, use the steps in the outline "Turn off or uninstall OneDrive" https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Turn-off-or-uninstall-OneDrive-f32a17ce-3336-40fe-9c38-6efb09f944b0

For the records here's how to uninstall the apps whose Uninstall button is grayed out. Run the following command in PowerShell:

Get-AppxPackage *appname* | Remove-AppxPackage

Where appname is as follows, for example:
Groove Music – zunemusic
Movies and TV – zunevideo
Store – windowsstore
Xbox – xboxapp
