    It's easy to get rid but getting it out of the all apps menu seems almost impossible atm, even if you delete the whole folder it's still in the all apps menu.

    So? Lots of things are in the All Apps menu. That's what it is for. You wouldn't rip out all the phone lines in your home just because you don't use a land line.

    i found a way yesterday..
    but it caused the Start Menu to fail..
    and trying to restore caused errors.. eventually leading to boot problems.
    i had to restore to an old System Image..

    i'd leave Cortana & Shell Experience alone.
    those 2 are needed for the Start Menu and overall Windows stability.

    Thanks for everyone's help though

    FYI: you can disable Cortana from starting.. but DO NOT try to remove it.
    - if you're curious where the Start Menu shortcut is located.. drag the Cortana "All Apps" shortcut to the desktop. you'll see a file named "@Microsoft...." .. if you search that name in the registry you'll find it under Packages..

    I suspected something like that may happen. When you futz with the OS it's hard to tell what's important or what the OS can repair/correct, and once you break something more futzing usually just makes it worse.

    I do not believe that you can completely remove it. I just hid it , I have no use for it.
