    How to hide latest unwanted apps

    When Windows 10 came out I used the Get-AppxPackage in powershell to hide many apps that I didn't want to access. In the Creators update, though, several have returned.

    Phone Companion

    And also the Lock Screen has appeared during startup again, despite being disabled in the registry.

    Can anyone tell me how to disable these from the PC? The expected commands in Powershell nolonger work.

    Hi, I don't know if you have Home or Pro.
    Lock Screen:
    Enable or Disable Lock Screen in Windows 10 Customization Tutorials

    And you can try Winaero's approach (yes, the article refers to the AU) but one click in Winaero's tweaker costs little to try)
