Uninstalling Groove Music in windows 10

I wanted to listen to some music and kept hitting the groove music icon which requires and account and well, it's not what I want to use. I just wanted the simple windows player. Unfortunately there was no uninstall icon for it anywhere. After creating a restore point, I deleted all the registry keys for it but it was still a no go. I didn't want to spend another day trying to get rid of this thing which I don't use. I finally found this link to uninstalling it through the windows shell. The only thing I had to do is use the version on my computer since it's been some time since this was posted. My version was different so make sure you scroll up on your list to make sure that you copy and take out the version on your computer. It may just not work if you type a different number. In short, this got rid of it and it's now gone from my start as well. There's nothing more annoying that not being able to get rid of a program that you don't use. Specially with everything tracking what you use or don't use nowadays.

Smb and cyberattacks

Some good news in the quadcopters and hobby land.

I think this is great. I liked this hobby because it got me out of the house if only for brief moments. I think this hobby has been taken way off base. Granted there are those that will do stupid things no matter what but for me, this was just a hobby until all the nonsense started with these laws. You can't enjoy yourself without someone making a big deal out of say flying in circles in front of you for example. Well at least when I used to go out for a bit. Heck even flying my small helicopter used to be fun but I stopped using them because who knows what someone may say or do. I used the park when no one was around but one day the ranger woman said I could not ride my bike at the trail because it was for horses. I only went out for a bit and since I was out of shape there's no way in hell I could run over anyone. Not to mention I was there only briefly each time. It was alright for the horses to crap all over the trail which I also walked through. I guess a lot of things are so backwards in the city that you just don't bother going anywhere. Even the baseball field was locked because it was only for when teams played and no one else could use it.
