Here's a powershell script example of how to remove bing:

CODE
Admin Powershell
Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online | Out-GridView -PassThru | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online

Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online | Where-Object {$_.PackageName -like "*bing*"} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online

Here's a similar list covering all the 'modern apps' which was supplied by MS Support a couple of years ago.
I needed to reinstall Windows Mail from the Store as it was corrupted.
To do so, it has to be removed first!

CODE
To remove Windows apps, open Powershell as an administrator and type the command below for the app(s)
----------------------------------------

Uninstall 3D Builder:
Get-AppxPackage *3dbuilder* | Remove-AppxPackage

Uninstall Alarms and Clock:
Get-AppxPackage *windowsalarms* | Remove-AppxPackage

Uninstall Calculator:
Get-AppxPackage *windowscalculator* | Remove-AppxPackage

Uninstall Calendar and Mail:
Get-AppxPackage *windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage

Uninstall Camera:
Get-AppxPackage *windowscamera* | Remove-AppxPackage

Uninstall Contact Support:
This app can't be removed.

Uninstall Cortana:
This app can't be removed.

Uninstall Get Office:

--------------------------------

If you decide you want the preinstalled apps back, you can reinstall them with a single line of PowerShell code. Again, open a PowerShell window as Administrator. Copy and paste the following line at the PowerShell prompt, and then press Enter:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

And if you cant remove an app or a service, then disable it with the regedit registry editor. Data values 0 = No, 1 = Yes.

A much better way for de-activating/deleting Windows services is to use Autoruns (you can even script it)

Autoruns does not prevent Cortana, Windows Update and other newer services in Windows 10 from running.

Probably better to use a Group Policy to disable Cortana: https://www.howtogeek.com/265027/how-to-dis...-in-windows-10/

Also tried group policy and that didn't disable Cortana. Seems like Microsoft embedded Cortana and Win Update into the Windows 10 OS Kernel. Editing the registry settings was the only way I was able to truly disable them. I also disabled Telemetry in the registry without breaking Windows 10.
