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.

"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."

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

Is there a reason not to use the Edge browser?
