    How do you remove Cortana? You don't. Not completely. Sure, pretty useless as a file search front end.

    Enable or Disable Cortana in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Apps Features Tutorials

    It's not worth bothering to remove apps that come with Windows in my opinion. You can stop them receiving/updating data in the background in Settings, you could I suppose disable the scheduled task that updates them every 4 hours...

    They add little overhead, and are reinstated if you do certain repair actions, and on any build upgrade or clean install.

    I managed to remove cortana and smartscreen process from taskmanager and did a reboot its not showing in taskmanager anymore. Now the only one that is remaining is wireless display media viewer.
