The reg block says ";Disable fast start-up", but then sets HiberbootEnabled to 1. Is this the correct way?

Oops, that should be set to 0. Thank you for noticing my mistake, it's fixed now.

Another suggestion is to add -AllUsers option because there can be several users for one PC

And I use those in addition, don't know if it's needing with yours, could you inspect them?

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers Microsoft.Xbox.TCUI | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers Microsoft.XboxGameOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers Microsoft.XboxIdentityProvider | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers Microsoft.XboxSpeechToTextOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage

Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -online | where-object {$_.PackageName -like "MicrosoftTeams"} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online –Verbose

Admin rights are needed for -AllUsers and for uninstalling provisioned packages so I'll keep the regular Remove-AppxPackage so most of the tweaks can be applied on a restricted user session.

I won't add the Xbox Game Bar to the list as some games try to launch the ms-gamingoverlay: URI at launch. However, if the other Xbox-related packages are not breaking the game bar after uninstalling I can add them.
