    That unfortunately wont get rid of edge or Cortana, they seem to be protected.

    Funny enough though you can use this method to uninstall the windows store, you would think that would want to be protected too :P

    No like, no use, simple thing. Some parts are deeply integrated in windows, IE for instance, can't get rid of them completely, never ever. Whole of EU tried to get MS to take IE out and all they succeeded is to make MS remove it as default browser and make easier installing and using third party browsers as default browser.

    Actually you can do better than that. You can add to his reputation by giving him a "Thumbs Up" at the lower left of his post.

    The best way is to tell Cortana, "No, thanks!" And using another browser as your default will take care of Edge. Neither one will bother you again.

    Hi bobjoe,

    Your link does not have a way to reinstall Microsoft apps.

    First I want to give EVERYONE my FREE ADVICE.
    Hopefully you will create a restore point before starting and have already created a Windows 10 Rescue Disc and Recovery USB flash drive. You need these things before attempting any changes to your computer.

    Remove Default Apps from Windows 10

    Reinstall Default Built-in Apps in Windows 10
    https://thomas.vanhoutte.be/miniblog...ndows-10-apps/


    Do you know that you can not use F8 to boot in Windows 10? That is why the Rescue Disc and Recovery USB flash drive for Windows 10 are VITAL.

    I really hate Microsoft for not letting me remove programs as I please. All the news with windows 10 is really annoying. Do they really consider themself patriotic Americans? Friends I thought would never change are saying "Maybe it's time to get a Mac."
    Those "programs" you refer to are integrated in OS and are part of whole system, removing them would brake other parts. An example is IE that was part of the system ever since first version. Windows File Explorer, search and other functions are within same engine and none of that would work. You can't just remove part of OS and expect it to work.
