Every so often I hear my CPU fan spinning up wildly. A quick check of the Windows Task Manager reveals the culprit to be the Windows Photo App, an app I never use so I decide to delete it.
A quick Google search and I find the basic instructions to do so, summarized here:
- Open PowerShell (Windows-X, then select PowerShell (Admin))
- Enter the following command, then sit back and wait:
Get-AppxPackage *photo* | Remove-AppxPackage
- All done!
My CPU can now rest peacefully.
