Remove unknown locale qaa-Latn from windows

Got a fresh window 10 installation where I configure US keyboard as default and added Greek as well (the language with π and Σ symbols). I noticed that when I was switching languages a 3rd locale (qaa-Latn) appeared in the list which I couldn't remove from the windows list. In my case the keyboard was emitting Greek characters but the windows spelling couldn't recognize the words. In order to remove the extra locale I had to use the following powershell.

Set proxy for command line in windows

 Ever wanted to force tools like curl and az cli to pass their traffic through a proxy while running them in cmd.exe?

Set the following environment variables and netsh will automatically pick up them and use them for all network connectivity.
