    How to remove all bundled apps in Windows 10


    This can be done using the command line tool, PowerShell. To open PowerShell, open the Start menu (press Win key on the keyboard) and type Powershell. When it comes up in the search results, right click on it and choose "Run as administrator". Or you can also press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open it as administrator. Opening PowerShell as administrator is important, otherwise, the commands you run will fail.
    Type the following command to remove all Modern apps from the system account:

    Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online
    This means that all newly created user accounts will come without built-in Modern apps. This also means that new user accounts will be created faster.

    Finally, here's a command that will remove Metro apps for all user accounts:

    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

    This works, I used the last one and every app except Contact Support, Cortana, Edge,Settings and Windows Feedback were removed.

    Please Make a Restore Point and/or Backup your registry before doing this. Caution: Use at your own risk.

    There is more about this at the source posted. Be careful.

    Good one Gary !

    And you can have a nice clean Menu:

    You can also 'Save' the app shortcuts in case you want to re-instate some or all of them:

    Open a Run box and type shell:appsfolder and Enter,
    create shortcuts for whatever you wish from in there, (they will be saved to the desktop), then move them to a folder, preferably in the C: directory, for safe keeping.
    After you run the PowerShell command, the icons in that folder will turn blank but simply clicking on them will re-instate the App and the icon you just clicked on.
