Hi there,

I am helping a friend clean up her W10 and there is an HTML File located on the desktop that opens with MS Edge. When you click to open it, it says Apps removed while refreshing your PC. What is this and can I delete it?

Thank you,
Donna :)

Apps removed while refreshing your PC. What is this and can I delete it?

Refresh will save your data but remove the softwares that you have installed yourself.

Apps you installed from websites and DVDs will be removed. Apps that came with your PC and apps you installed from the Windows Store will be reinstalled. Windows puts a list of removed apps on your desktop after refreshing your PC.

Remember I have a Windows 10 machine here too

As far as I know it's just a list so we know what was removed and what might need or wanted to be reinstalled, so yes deleting it would not be an issue.

FYI
You do know you can right click on the start button on windows 10 there is some familiar things there in the window that opens. Might make navigation easier for control panel, programs an features etc
