    Ok there are two games I have to forcibly remove from my external hard drive. That being yakuza 0 and outer worlds. I installed these two through the Game Pass and they had an update. They didn't want to update so I tried to remove them through the apps under the settings bar. Now they won't uninstall at all, are still taking up space on my hdd, and say "install" through either the store or xbox apps.



    I know this ordeal I went through it with Halo before. I must forcibly remove something. Problem is that was three or so months ago and I don't quite remember how to do it. I was wondering what is an easy solution for this problem? I would like to reclaim the 100GB or so on my hdd please.



    I'm just going to get them on Steam next time that they are on sale. Such an easier app to use and has never given me problems uninstalling or reinstalling games.



    Thank you very much!

    Cortana is an integral part of Windows and she cannot be entirely turned off. However, if you don’t want Cortana functionality available to you on your taskbar, I would suggest you to follow these steps:
    Manage Cortana settings.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. Microsoft Adds Ability to Block Win32 Apps from Install on Windows 10

    Yes, UWP is an interpreter, an app running in UWP can't function without the interpreter. Only the UWP core has access to the actual hardware, the app does not.

    By not having direct access to the hardware, they perform slower. UWP has to translate everything and make sure it passes safety and security checks.

    If UWP has issues, all of the apps running on top of it also will. I've seen that in early release of Windows 10 where all UWP based, Windows-included apps broke (Edge, Calculator, Mail, etc.). Granted, it was only broke in one user account.
