Uninstall preloaded Windows 8 apps in bulk with this program

Ian Paul | April 28, 2014
Removing bloatware from a new PC is a rite of passage for most Windows users whenever they get a new machine. And for years, desktop users have turned to third-party programs such as PC Decrapifier to automate bloatware removal.

Also, keep in mind that the Start menu is set to return to Windows 8.1 — possibly as soon as August. When the Start menu does come back it will include the ability to display some at-a-glance data from modern apps such as local weather and calendar appointments. So some modern apps may be worth keeping even if you don't use them right now.

That said, if you ever want any of your deleted modern apps back, they are always available for download from the Windows Store.
