NLite missing removable content

I have the home edition of NLite and for some reason it doesn't show for example: Microsoft Office and all its software, calculator, etc. But I know they should be there to be able to get removed since I watched a few videos of others using NLite alas an older and probably free version so I don't get why it doesn't show them to me. So the help in this matter would be appreciated.

Start by posting more information (Windows build and NTLite build).

Get an untouched source (or ISO image).

Download the latest NTLite version, load the image, go to Components, at the bottom is located Windows Apps, expand all, should be there.

As Kasual already stated, maybe it's already removed.
If not, then maybe you mean Office shortcuts on the Start Menu, those are not real apps.

To find anything on the Components page, use the Filter row and Search box.

Yeah that might be it I didn't actually opened them, I go and check it out right now and tell you what I find. Thanks and you too Kasual :).

So, I am using Windows 10 LTSC 2019 [July 2020 Updated] iso and I tried the filter/search bar but nothing came up, also I had the latest NTLite and I did went to the Components and expanded EVERYTHING there and look it through it one-by-one but there was no trace for it. Even after all this when I installed the OS there was Skype for Business and all the Office application and they ARE there, even int the Control Panel, Apps section. Any suggestions?

Did you remove cortana? if yes then don't just disable it... I think cortana can only be removed in after 20h1 update so only new windows 10 is supported

Yes I did remove Cortana, so you're telling me that since I have the newest NTLite it only supports the newest Windows 10 ISO files that is why since my is from July it doesn't fully supported and so I can remove the Office unless I get an older version of NTLite or a newer version of the ISO, right?

No ntlite supports every kind of windows. But due to how windows works, cortana is only recently seperated from search in windows 10. so only new windows 10's search will work without cortana. So in your case. LTSC is a old windows and it needs cortana for search to work (you can disable just don't remove it)

Oh, that is not a problem since I use Openshell that replace the Windows 10 Start Menu and Search with Windows 7 themed on. Also my problem here is that for some reason when I searched for the 'Microsoft Office' or the 'Skype' Windows App in the Component section they were not there but when I installed my custom iso file as a virtual machine and opened the Start Menu there was Word, Excel, etc and the Skype for Business and when I checked in the Control Panel's Uninstall section there was the Microsoft Office (the Skype wasn't there though). So I don't know why I can't remove them (or find them) in NTLIte (even though I double checked if the problem with me by check out some youtuber who used the NTLite too and they were able to remove it but in my case it wasn't there where it was for them) ;(

Because they are just links for download, you succesfully removed components but links are present. to remove them i would suggest look a bit to settings part in ntlite, you will see multiple entries about sponsored apps, oem apps, preinstalled apps etc.. disable them all..


openshell or startisback or startdock kind of softwares will only enable startmenu search. Folder search's will still be broken untill you keep cortana

I'm not sure about if they are just links to downloads since when I clicked on them they opened the program normally and as I said it was listed in the control panel's app list, but I'm gonna check if I can find anything in the settings that can help me.

Found it but I already disabled it so thats not it. This is really getting frustrating, I mean it is not that big of a deal since I could just uninstall after the install but it just bugging me why its not showing up and what else might I be missing out of. :confused:

If your NTlite license has expired before the Windows 10 build, there is the answer, as new NTLite builds will support fully existing components and Windows builds released before your license expiration.

Find Support and upgrades in the linked page.

Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 does not have preinstalled UWP apps (apps from Microsoft Store, both official and third-party ones).

If they are showing up for you, then I wonder if you are really installing LTSC 2019.

Are there other versions like Home or Pro on the iso after you edit it? It's easiest to trim all other editions if you want to make sure a specific edition is installed.

I've been using the latest version of NTLite for a few months now and I've had no problem removing Windows Apps on 1709 Home/Pro, 1809 Home/Pro, 1909 Home/Pro, and 2004 Home/Pro.
