How To Remove Apps From Windows 10

Windows 10 comes preloaded with a lot of default apps.  Depending on which version you have, you will see various apps in your start menu that you don’t want.  You can remove any app you do not want.

The very first thing you should try is simply right-clicking on an app on the start menu and see if there is the uninstall option.  If there is no such option, read on.

You will need to find PowerShell.  Go to start and type PowerShell.  You need administrator rights, so right click on it and choose "Run as administrator".

Now, all you need to do is copy & paste the appropriate code for each app you want to remove from Windows 10.

* NOTE: If you get an error message with this, or any other removal, don't worry it still removes the app.  Also, it seems to work best if you update all of your apps first, then remove them.

You can reinstall all apps with this command:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

You can list the installed apps by copy & paste the following:
DISM /Online /Get-ProvisionedAppxPackages | select-string Packagename
