I personally Just Upgraded to Windows 10 LTSC 2021. Guess what you could uninstall Edge . It took me a while to remove windows defender but it was all in gpedit.msc just hidden deeper. Was also able to remove the stupid firewall prompt after I turn it off. I really do not need a software firewall when My hardware firewall does the trick. I turned off all telemetry tracking in group policies. Got it to work good too. I bought 3 licenses of LTSC 2021 and will be working on my gaming box soon with it.
