    Any script/app to remove OOB apps?

    Hi all,

    I use Windows 10 on several desktops where I do not need or want the built-in Metro or UWP apps. Some of them can be uninstalled and others the Uninstall option is greyed out.

    Is there a script (maybe PowerShell?) that removes all or specific bloat?

    Looking at Task Manager, I still see the following which are questionable whether they should be running in the background:
    -Cortana Background Task Host

    Pretty much if I go to the Task Manager App History tab, I have no need for any of the apps listed there.
