Clean Windows Setup
So i was watching a video today where they went through setting up and cleaning a windows installation, and man i thought i really want to do this.
My PC and Laptop just get so cluttered with apps and just so many things, so when i have some spare time... I am going to do this.
Surely i cant be using all of these apps!
Desktop PC Apps installed
Lets get cleaning.
Now to list all the apps that i actually use before reinstalling. I will note the reinstall process here.
Before i start here is the inpiration video and link:
