Removal of unwanted network protocols

Hello,

 

I noticed that network services like "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing []" cannot be uninstall anymore, only unticked. Is there a way to get those uninstalled like in Windows 2016 ?

 

Many thanks,

Hi. This is documented in:
