Question

Cannot uninstall Mixed Reality Portal

Mixed Reality Portal is useless to me. My laptop is incompatible with it. I'm also an upper-level graphic design student, and I need all the hard drive space I can get. All the other built-in Microsoft apps were a breeze to uninstall with Powershell, but not this one.

I tried uninstalling it first in Powershell, like I said, but that didn't work. Then I realized that because my laptop doesn't have the necessary VR hardware, the Mixed Reality page in Settings was disabled. I went into regedit, and was able to make the Mixed Reality page visible without a hitch. I hit uninstall and restarted my computer, thinking everything was going to work out nicely. But then when I scrolled through my start menu after rebooting, Mixed Reality Portal was still there, and its settings page was once again hidden. I did the regedit fix again and yet again uninstalled from settings, then restarted my computer. Guess what's back.

Should I do the regedit fix again, and then try to uninstall from Powershell? Or is this thing immune to uninstalling? I'm losing my mind.
