    Just installed CU and the only thing I can't find a way to remove is the Mixed Reality Portal. Anyone worked it out yet?
    @satysin, I have the opposite problem, I don't have any of it on my PC (it's there, I can see the executables, just nothing in Settings or the Start menu).

    Turns out my hardware doesn't meet the minimum specs so it wasn't set up. Yours apparently did meet the requirements. This tutorial told me how to override the testing and restore all the holographic bits to both Start and Settings. Turning it off should remove it all for you.
    Add or Remove Mixed Reality page from Settings in Windows 10

    Edit: having turned it on, I find this under 'Learn more...'.
    Uninstalling Windows Mixed Reality
    To uninstall Windows Mixed Reality, go to Settings > Mixed reality > Uninstall on your PC. Before you begin, make sure to disconnect your mixed reality headset from your PC and close the Mixed Reality Portal app.

    Perhaps you left something connected or open when you last tried to uninstall?

    I get this error when I try
    Hi there

    ?

    How on earth do you read that -- must be the most difficult colour combo to read I've ever seen !!!!!

    If you must have a blue background try white or yellow (or even Green) text !!!!!

    Care to elaborate?

    Are you saying you can remove it via power shell and somehow use that command to remove the entry from the start menu?

    Without breaking the other functionality? Aka settings as listed above in a prior post?

    Thanks!
    I had uninstalled all Apps by way of the PowerShell method, (and a couple other means!)
    The only Tiles that remained were Settings, Windows Defender Security Center and Mixed Reality Portal.
    The 'Tilegone.cmd' took care of those three.
    Settings can then be accessed via the WinX Menu or the shortcut created from the shell:appsfolder.
    Defender dashboard can be accessed via shell:appsfolder shortcut or from within the Settings App.

    As a backup, you can create shortcuts of desired Apps from within the shell:appsfolder
    Some default and system apps can be re-instated simply by clicking the shortcuts.

    WORD OF CAUTION:
    If you have removed the Store via Powershell and then also run the Tilegone.cmd, you will NOT be able to resurrect the Store!!!

    Confirm:
    If you go to shell:appsfolder from a Run box, create shortcuts of desired apps and place them in a folder somewhere on C:,
    then run 'Tilegone.cmd', you'll be okay to invoke the apps from those custom shortcuts.
    (There won't be a taskbar thumbnail when they're running and minimizing closes them)

    alright guys, apologize for the "newb" question but this tilegone.cmd.

    Wanna give someone unfamilair the rundown? All I have left are mixed reality portal, settings, and windows security center in my start menu. Settings can stay. Especially if it means keeping the button functional.

    I want to remove Mixed Reality & Windows Security center though. How do i go about it? Do i need to remove the apps in their entirety first via powershell, or will this tilegone remove just the tiles from the start menu? Furthermore, what is the exact command I need to run to remove them?

    (sorry, im more of a hardware guy lol)

    You need to be signed on to your PC as Administrator.
    All Tiles will be eliminated, including Settings, you will not be able to access Settings in the Start Menu either:

    but you can access Settings via the WinX Menu, or via post #14 above.
    (Read Post #13 and 14)

    The command is:

    @net.exe session >nul 2>&1
    @if ErrorLevel 1 (echo "Run as Administrator" & pause && exit)

    sc stop tiledatamodelsvc
    move /y %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\OLD_TileDataLayer


    Copy and Paste into Notepad and save as xxxx.cmd file

    so i got this figured out and working exactly how i had hoped.... ALMOST!

    i createad shortcuts from the shell folder. ran tilegone etc.

    start menu is now cleaned up. Problem is, i tried to add the shortcut for store/settings etc to a pre existing folder so I had access to them if i needed them. They still function but are now a blank/empty icon in the start menu?

    if i navigate to the folder in explorer, the shortcut shows up with the proper icon, it is just empty/white/blank in the start menu itself. Any ideas?

    thank yoU!

    Reset it from windows settings
    Settings --> Apps --> Apps & Features -> #yourapp#(Store,Xbox,etc.) --> Advenced Options --> Reset
