Windows 10 post install clean-up

This may not be the opinion of many, but Microsoft Windows 10 is an attractive theme.  More compelling reasons to upgrade to it include critical updates and product support. That being said, having upgraded a computer or two to Microsoft Windows 10, I have noted that there are additional applications that I consider as bloatware.  Removing this bloatware through the traditional path of Add/Remove Software or right-click and Uninstall can be cumbersome.  PowerShell is a fantastic alternative as an approach.

There are likely others, however, on one box this series of commands adequately removed some of the bloatware from Microsoft Windows 10.
