Windows 10: Cortana Gone is my next goal. Disable yes, but also rem lang files.

    Cortana Gone is my next goal. Disable yes, but also rem lang files.


    I'm on a small mission to create a process list to shrink Win 10, for use on small Atom X5 Z8350 PCs (2GB/32GB).

    I have the installed size down to 12.9GB. (Including: CCleaner, MS Access 2007 Runtime, MS.Net framework, Opera browser).
    The one final feature I want to remove is Cortana, after I found the somewhat large language files cache.

    I've seen most of the 'Disable' articles and videos, but they don't mention removal of the backend/language files.

    Has anyone else accomplished this?
    Just delete all Cortana files after disabling?

    Huh - installed size of W10 on a tablet is around 8-9GB.

    Use compactOS - it will save GBs compared with paltry few MB you will get by deleting Cortana and breaking OS.
