📝 Notes

1809

Microsoft Edge browser background process re-spawns the cortana searchui process if it gets killed.

It is possible to remove cortana after removing msedge

1803

Added new script to remove Microsoft Edge browser as it now seems to run in the background.

Microsoft seem to have removed the GPO for disabling cortana in Software Policies.

⚠️ Cleanup

Cleanup folder contains scripts which could cause problems with Windows Components as it removes unwanted applications / components.
