    Your command should say
    ... where-object {$_.packagename -like "*Microsoft.People*"}...
    but is being read from the .bat file as
    ... where-object {$_.packagename űlike "*Microsoft.People*"}...

    The '-' symbol is being read as 'ű'. Seems that Notepad may be saving it with the wrong encoding, try setting it to 'save as' using ANSI encoding. Also, you seem to be using the symbol which is not the same as - (the minus sign) even though it looks similar.

    Here is the command I used:

    PowerShell -Command "Get-appxprovisionedpackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*Microsoft.People*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage -online"
    Pause


    Is it still wrong?

    Yes @SightUp, but not in the way you may think.

    Here you are falling foul of the quotes marks. You have to put quotes around the command you pass to Powershell, but the Powershell command itself uses quotes inside it. The first " is paired with the second to determine what command is passed to Powershell, but the second " is part of the powershell command. Effectively the command you gave Powershell was just:
    "Get-appxprovisionedpackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -like "
    (everything after the second " was ignored)

    The way round this is to use different quotes for different purposes. You can use ' as well as " to mark out a string. Try this minor modification that uses both types of quotes.

    PowerShell -Command "Get-appxprovisionedpackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -like '*Microsoft.People*'} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage -online"
    Pause

    Look like the Powershell command completed without error this time. It's normal not see any sort of 'completed successfully' message from Powershell, so it only remains to check if the app has successfully been uninstalled.

    @Brink
    Great List !! thank you !
    'dunno if you noticed (or if someone mentioned it) but there's a few apps missing :
    *Microsoft.Windows.Cortana* (you can always let her be, and disable her notifications and behaviour)
    *Microsoft.SpeedTest*
    *Duolingo* (spanish learner)
    *PicsArt*
    *Wunderlist*

    one I could never figure out what package it is, is the Translator... Can someone tell me what it is ? (Microsoft.Translator ???)

    Thank you
    Have a nice day :)

    Thank you @fmartel. :)

    Microsoft Translator would be for this app: Translator | Microsoft Store

    Is there a way to make those apps (including OneDrive), once unInstalled and unProvisionned, to not re-appear or re-install for any subsequent (new) users ?

    Using Option Three to uninstall the apps for new users should prevent that.
