Wrong quote, lol.. this is a batch for One Drive:

@Echo off
cls

set x86="%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe"
set x64="%SYSTEMROOT%\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe"

echo Closing OneDrive process.
echo.
taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe > NUL 2>&1
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 5 > NUL 2>&1

echo Uninstalling OneDrive.
echo.
if exist %x64% (
%x64% /uninstall
) else (
%x86% /uninstall
)
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 5 > NUL 2>&1

echo Removing OneDrive leftovers.
echo.
rd "%USERPROFILE%\OneDrive" /Q /S > NUL 2>&1
rd "C:\OneDriveTemp" /Q /S > NUL 2>&1
rd "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive" /Q /S > NUL 2>&1
rd "%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft OneDrive" /Q /S > NUL 2>&1

echo Removing OneDrive from the Explorer Side Panel.
echo.
REG DELETE "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}" /f > NUL 2>&1
REG DELETE "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}" /f > NUL 2>&1

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


And to remove Skype entirely, after uninstalling it normally, run Powershell with admin rights and type:

Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.SkypeApp* | Remove-AppxPackage

Then type:

dism /online /Get-ProvisionedAppxPackages

Find and copy the SkypeApp.* from the list, then type:

dism /online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:

Paste copied text right after "PackageName:", no spaces

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

Warning: Removing packages (such as Skype) can cause sysprep issues, i'm fine with it but you may not be. In my case, this only affects me in my being unable to do Windows Updates, which i never do anyway; instead, i do a clean install every oh so many months. I must also learn how to post like a normal person, 'cause i've done like 10 edits since i first posted this :)

I've uninstalled skype and it's gone completely. It won't appear even when I install a new build
Yeah I removed it too but I have seen the process running in task manager from time to time

Now if that'd work for OneDrive... :D
I think they have fixed it. I was able to uninstall OneDrive just by right clicking on it and then uninstall. No PowerShell, no CMD or any other kind of hacking.

Clean W10 install, latest ISO downloaded today, all updates applied.

You can now yes, but the above is faster and leaves no registry traces behind. Uninstalling does and unless you're on a custom mode, no reg cleaner out there will delete miscrosoft entries :)

My apologies, it's just a batch. Save it with notepad/n++, rename -> change extension from .txt. to .bat and double click :)

A couple of key combinations I've never heard of

After minimizing all windows with Win+D you can restore them with Win+D or with Win+Shift+M
Win+Ctrl+F Find Computer
Win+Shift+S lets you select and save a rectangular piece of the screen so you can paste it in any image editor
Win + A - Action Center
Win + B - Set focus in the notification area


Win+Shift+S is really awesome. Goodbye print screen

How to fix Windows 10 removing the control panel from your Power Menu. Credit to PC World for the directions.

Bring up the "Run" Prompt: Windows key + R. Enter or paste %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group2, and hit Enter.
Move the existing Control Panel icon to a separate folder on your desktop, "just in case".
Download the attached shortcut provided from Deskmodder.de
Extract the Control Panel icon and place it in the Winx folder.
Restart your computer, or right-click and restart the Windows Explorer process in Task Manager. (ctrl-shift-esc, scroll down the processes tab, and right click "Windows Explorer", restart. If you don't see the processes tab, click More Details).

Windows key + X or right click the windows icon for the start menu.
Profit.

Fix Slow-Loading Windows Icons by Increasing the Icon Cache in Windows 10

winver -> regedit -> enter -> alt+d -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer -> enter

Right-click the Explorer folder and select New > String Value. Name the new value Max Cached Icons.

Double click Max Cached Icons to open the Edit String window. In the “Value data” box, enter a new value for the icon cache size. By default, the icon cache size is 500 KB. 4096 (4 MB) or 8192 (8 MB) is sufficient. Click OK when you're done. Reboot.
