    Some Apps in Cortana cannot be deleted: Redstone One Clean install

    I'm not able to delete Bing and some other apps using the dedicated command lines in Powershell and/or Powershell_ISE. Can someone help?

    I saw here that I'm not the only one experiencing this issue (did not try that link):

    For the rest, interesting new features in the settings menu. The installer asks to confirmed the Home or the Pro version and sees that I run the Pro version. On post-installation, the Pro version has similar behavior of the Home version. The very last thing that a Pro version owner wants to deal with is the HOME version.

    Got the ISO from Micrsoft there:

    The bug is in Powershell_ISE: Terminal Misinterpretation

    When we carefully copy/paste a command line from WordPad (.rtf extension), a space or two are introduced after the last character that disable the delete process in powershell_ise. If we backspace beside last character, they all work.

    There is no such mismatch in a Linux terminal

    This intermittent bug has been there since build 10074 in Powershell ISE: Trials and errors. It took the introduction of Cortana in the Redstone_1 installer and 3 clean install to find this long lasting bug (Home or Pro version).

    For Bing (finance,news,sports) and Windowsphone (not part of the installer).

    Just got connected to the Internet and Bing is not there anymore. We don't like the Start Menu at all, Seeking a way removing all apps list because there is no switch to do so.

    Complete build sting:

    14393.0.amd64fre.rs1_release.160715-1616 / Clean Install / Sept 7th
    14393.187.amd64fre.rs1_release_inmarket.160906-1818 / After first update/Sept. 17th
