Here is a free software to remove Windows 10 built-in apps, OneDrive, disable Cortana, disable showing internet search results in Start menu, etc. The software is named as “Chemo“. All you need to do is select these options available on its interface and then it will help you remove and disable the items selected by you. Apart from that, it also lets you do other things. For example, you can disable internet search results from displaying in Windows 10 Start menu, set system clock to UTC, and force enable Ctrl+Alt+Del at sign in. You can also disable force reboot after Windows update and deprovision Microsoft Store packages (to prevent Store apps from reappearing when you create a new user).
Though there are many tools that let you disable Cortana, remove built-in apps, remove OneDrive, etc., you will need separate tools to serve all these purposes. This software, on the other hand, is better to use.
In the screenshot above, you can see that earlier web search results were visible in Start menu but later web search results are disabled. This is just an example which I did using this software.
Note: This is a very powerful software which works perfectly. So, before using this software, you must create system restore point, backup system or your important data to overcome from any problem (if occurs). Also, the software is handy to remove most of the built-in Microsoft Store apps and not all apps. You may see this list that covers which apps can be removed by it.
