    Run PowerShell as an administrator and run the following command:

    Get-AppxPackage

    Look for the name of the application:

    Look for Name : Microsoft.PPIProjection

    Look for the install Location and add it to the command and press ENTER like below:

    Get-AppxPackage -Name *Microsoft.PPIProjection_cw5n1h2txyewy

    Then add the name to the command and press ENTER like below:

    Remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.PPIProjection_cw5n1h2txyewy -confirm

    Can I see the information you have under 'Name : Microsoft.PPIProjection'?

    You are running the command from the start menu as 32-bit on a 64-bit system. Please, run the 64-bit powershell as an administrator from the system32.

    How would you even know whether OP is running x86 or x64?
    Also, the nice thing about pipelining in PowerShell is that you can simply do...
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.PPIProjection | Remove-AppxPackage
    But removing it this way doesn't work, anyway.

    From the writeerror.

    You are correct about using that command failing to remove the file. What I did though after all attempts failed with the PowerShell commands is to manually delete the folders through granting of permission to User in Safe mode.

    Code:
    cd /d "%~dp0"echo Uninstalling Projection...
    CLS
    install_wim_tweak.exe /o /l
    install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c Microsoft-PPIProjection-Package /r
    install_wim_tweak.exe /h /o /l
    pause
    but i don't recommend deleting stuff with wim_tweak since it can break Windows Update.

    You would have to manually remove it.

    That is a third party software. I wouldn't recommend that though.

    Why you people want to remove it?
    It does not utilize your PC resources. Just don't run it!

    Because it's bloatware, or do you like having tons of apps installed that you never use anyway and keeps messing up your start menu? UWP apps are crap.

    You can remove it with install_wim_tweak, get the .exe from Google and enter these commands in CMD:

    echo Uninstalling Microsoft Edge...
    CLS
    install_wim_tweak.exe /o /l
    install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c Microsoft-Windows-Internet-Browser-Package /r
    install_wim_tweak.exe /h /o /l
    echo Microsoft Edge should be uninstalled. Please reboot Windows 10.
    pause

    Code:
    @echo off
    cd /d "%~dp0"
    echo Uninstalling Microsoft Edge...
    CLS
    install_wim_tweak.exe /o /l
    install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c Microsoft-Windows-Internet-Browser-Package /r
    install_wim_tweak.exe /h /o /l
    echo Microsoft Edge should be uninstalled. Please reboot Windows 10.
