Here is a tutorial on using PowerShell to remove the WIndows 10 Built-In apps. This is useful for providing a standardized PC environment to users in a work environment.
Basically, several PowerShell commands are used. The following commands show and remove apps from the user account.
- Show a listing of all the installed apps on the computer – Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName
- Remove the app – Get-AppxPackage [PackageFullName] | Remove-AppxPackage (you can put this into a script for multiple apps, or use wildcards)
Variations include uninstalling the app from all user accounts by adding -allusers – Get-AppxPackage -allusers [PackageFullName] | Remove-AppxPackage
If you need to re-install a particular app, you can use the following command – Add-AppxPackage -register “C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\[PackageFullName]\appxmanifest.xml” -DisableDevelopmentMode
