Windows 10 2004 Optional Apps

So now that Notepad, Paint & Wordpad are now optional and can be installed using the Optional Features under settings.

How do we, the enterprise users, get these reinstalled? Is there a way to do using MDT/DISM? Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi, my name is Nigel and I am an Independent Advisor here to try and work with you on this issue you are having.

You can pre install APPs using the DISM offline command into your image file, which you can then use for deployment using MDT/WDS.

Alternatively you can use DISM online commands as a sequence in the MDT process.

Sorry, just to say, we're not OEM but in a education setting.

Thank you again for the clear instructions.

Most of the steps you mention are there.

If I search for the app in search apps & software box I don't find anything. If I search in search the store box I can only find the notepad app, which I've got for the school and is now appearing under Product & Services.

However, nothing for the Wordpad or Paint. Do you think they're just not available yet on the store? They're available under optional features in consumer edition of windows. Thank you again.

Hello,

I can't see them either at the moment.
There are however alternative downloads which look exactly like paint and wordpad that are available.
