    Which exactly tells you the answer does it not? "This app can not be uninstalled"

    You could look at the link below (as you list is very out of date) but some apps (those part of the system) you simply can't uninstall like that.

    See Debloat-Windows-10/remove-default-apps.ps1 for a more up to date list.

    Specifically though, pay attention to this bit:
    Code:
        # apps which cannot be removed using Remove-AppxPackage
    
        #"Microsoft.BioEnrollment"
        #"Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge"
        #"Microsoft.Windows.Cortana"
        #"Microsoft.WindowsFeedback"
        #"Microsoft.XboxGameCallableUI"
        #"Microsoft.XboxIdentityProvider"
        #"Windows.ContactSupport"

    Thing is it doesn't remove even applications, which can be removed like photos and calculator, etc. etc.
    Now i can't even check, when i write: Get-AppxPackage -User "username" | Select Name, PackageFullName
    I get message: Get-AppxPackage : No valid SID could be determined.

    I coudn't list packages, because i changed my account name and when i put my account name in powershell with that command which lists packages under user account - it said: "sid coudn't be determined". So i changed it back and i tried remove packages for my user account by a name, previously it didn't work, now it deleted 0.5gb space on my ssd nice.
    Stil it is showing all installed packages when i used paramater: "-allusers", but on both accounts i deleted what i could hmm...
