    script to remove all apps by a specific vendor using wildcard name


    Im wondering if it would be possible to install a/all program(s) based a search of the vendor.

    Running the PS command below I get a list of all installed programs, including their vendors, which is great. However I've noticed in the case of SMARTTech/SMARTBoard programs the vendor name changes. Sometimes its just SMART, sometimes SMART Technologies, or SMART Technologies INC, ect. It would be nice to just uninstall any and all software by say looking for *SMART* or similar. I'm not a powershell guru so any help would be great.

    Code: get-wmiobject -class Win32_Product[/quote]

    :)

    What is Windows People Experience Host?

    go into C:\Windows\SystemApps and then find the folder that says "Microsoft.Windows.PeopleExperienceHost," and move it somewhere. I created a folder in SystemApps called "OLD." This way, anything you move there can be restored if it breaks Windows. Unfortunately,
    this can't be done with Cortana :-(

    The best way to remove other bloatware is with the get-appxpackage app in Powershell.

    Use "get-appxpackage | select name" to return the name of all appxpackages on your machine. Use google to look them up if you aren't sure what they are, as many of them are needed for the system to run (such as .NET framework).

    Then, for the ones you want to remove, use "get-appxpackage *solitaire* | Remove-appxpackage.

    The asterisks are wildcards, so this command will remove everything with solitaire in it, which should only be the one solitaire app.

  3. File search with wildcards in Windows 10

    First you would have to get them to acknowledge that "wildcards" were part of the specification. I have only seen that mentioned in terms of compatibility with old functionality. For example, instead of using the conventional trailing asterisk to denote
    "match anything else to the end" we now have Name:~< and Name:~= to mean "Begins with" and "Contains" respectively, so with (im)precision like that who needs wildcards? <eg>



    So, does your missing file turn up if instead you request Name:<~PICT Name:~>a Admittedly that might match more than you wanted, e.g. files with more or less than 4 characters between the patterns you specify but at least you would be using documented
    syntax to get them.
