Removing Windows 10 Apps

by Sep 24, 2015

Windows 10 comes with a bunch of preinstalled apps. Fortunately, you can use PowerShell to remove any app you don’t like. You may need Administrator privileges, though.

To find what apps are installed, run this:

Get-AppxPackage -User $env:USERNAME

This lists all apps installed for your own user account. To remove apps, use PackageFullName, and submit it to Remove-AppxPackage. Back up your system before you make changes, and do this on your own risk. Most apps are not vital.
