Anyone have any tips in disabling bloatware, like the microsoft apps? Think it would be good to have a thread on it.

I've already uninstalled facebook by running the follow commands in adb:

Code:
adb shell
pm uninstall --user 0 com.facebook.services
pm uninstall --user 0 com.facebook.katana
pm uninstall --user 0 com.facebook.system
pm uninstall --user 0 com.facebook.appmanager
Anyone know how to do the same for the microsoft apps, what about the alternative which is to disable the apps? I see a lot of apps I will never use that I cannot disable. Is there a good app on the play store that will let me disable these apps? For example I would like to disable the gallery and use Google Photos directly, or maybe Samsung Health.

I've also remapped the bixby button with bxActions, the benefit of doing it this way is I haven't had to go through the Bixby setup process first.

So if anyone has any other tips of knows the package name of the microsoft apps, would be to good to have it all in one thread,

If anything I've been using package disabler pro.. Disabled all the bloatware. Definitely running much smoother.

Do you have a list of apps you disabled or can you export your XML file? Thanks.

Code:
pm list packages | grep microsoft
This will list you all package names containing Microsoft.
Same can be done for linkedin and others.

Same here. I uninstalled it on my note 9 I purchased it on originally, and now when installing it on the s10 plus, I keep getting a failed to verify license error.
