    Please find the list of apps that can now be uninstalled using the Context menu below:

    • 3D Viewer
    • Calculator

    • Groove Music
    • Mail
    • Movies & TV
    • Paint 3D
    • Snip & Sketch
    • Sticky Notes

    To know how to uninstall the apps that cannot be uninstalled using the context menu, refer the article

    PowerShell
    by Anthony Bartolo.

    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.

    Windows 10 Built in apps + UAC

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft community. We understand your requirement in this regard.

    Please share these details.


    • On which Microsoft account you are trying to disable these apps?

    • When you say "we have an application in our company, which requires UAC to be disabled for it to work”. Which application you are referring to?

    • On how many computers you are facing this issue?

    • Are the systems connected to a domain network?

    • Is the issue specific to this application?


    You can see this error message “is app can't open with built in administrator account”, when you try to open built-in apps in built-in administrator. So you need a Microsoft account in order to make use of those built-in apps.



    Moreover, I see you already disabled the UAC as per the application requirement that you use as a part of your company. We don’t recommend disabling UAC on to help make your computer secure. However currently we don’t have any option to run those
    app with built-in administrator.



    I suggest that you provide your suggestions and feedbacks in the dedicated Feedback App. Follow these steps to provide suggestions in Windows Feedback App.

    At any time, select Start, and then type Windows Feedback to send us your opinions and suggestions. Windows Feedback is only available if you have Diagnostic and usage data set to Full (Full is the recommended setting).

    To change the Diagnostic and usage data setting, go to Start , then select Settings > Privacy > Feedback & diagnostics, and then, under Diagnostic and usage data, select an option.



    Thank you.
