Looks like you're another spammer whose sole purpose is to increase the number of posts.
I read your posts, they are all completely meaningless and contentless.

Majorgeeks also has a tool to modify the Windows install to remove the bloat permanently too.
Hi @PP Mguire, I realize this thread is almost two years old, & I understand if you don't wish to respond to this request.
If you can remember the name of that bloatware tool I would be extremely happy?

There are three ways to uninstall applications. You can uninstall applications through the Microsoft Store, Start menu, or from Settings.
  1. Uninstall from the Microsoft Store: Open the Microsoft Store from the Start menu, and then browse for the application you want to uninstall. On the Store page, each installed application has an Uninstall button.
  2. Uninstall from the Start menu: On the Start menu or in the All apps list, browse the app. Select and hold until the menu appears, then select Uninstall.
  3. Uninstall from Settings: On the Start menu, select Settings > Apps. Find the app from the list, select it and then click Uninstall.
