[Guide] How to Remove All Built-in Apps in Windows 10

UPDATE: Tutorial updated to include instructions for removing some new apps such as App Connector, App Installer, Microsoft Wi-Fi, Paint 3D, Sticky Notes, etc.

In previous tutorial, we told you about different ways to uninstall modern apps in Windows 10 operating system:

[Tip] How to Uninstall Modern Apps in Windows 10

The methods given in above mentioned tutorial can't uninstall all built-in apps. There are many built-in apps such as Photos, Music, OneNote, Xbox, People, Camera, etc which come preinstalled with Windows 10 and you can't uninstall them.

But there is an advanced method which can be used to get rid of all or specific built-in apps in Windows 10. You can remove any desired bundled app in Windows 10 with the help of this method.

The method we are talking about, includes use of PowerShell program present in Windows 10. You can use some commands in PowerShell to remove all or some modern apps which came bundled with Windows 10.

We have divided this tutorial in following parts for your convenience:

  • PART 1: Remove a specific built-in app in Windows 10
  • PART 2: Remove all built-in apps in Windows 10
  • PART 3: Reinstall/restore all or a specific built-in app in Windows 10

Now lets start the tutorial:

STEP 1:

First of all we need to open PowerShell as Administrator to execute the required commands.

Open Start Menu and type powershell. It'll automatically start searching for the program and will show PowerShell in search results. Now press Ctrl+Shift+Enter keys together to launch PowerShell as Administrator. Alternatively, you can right-click on PowerShell and select "Run as Administrator" option.

PS: If you have replaced Command Prompt with PowerShell in WIN+X menu, you can directly launch it from there. [See this]

STEP 2:

Now you'll need to execute commands in PowerShell as mentioned in following steps:

PART 1: Remove a Specific Built-in App in Windows 10

You can take help of Get-AppxPackage and Remove-AppxPackage commands to uninstall/remove built-in apps in Windows 10.

Get-AppxPackage command can be used to get a list of all installed modern apps in your computer. Remove-AppxPackage command is used to remove an app from Windows 10 computer.

If you want to remove an app, these commands will require an essential information about that app i.e. PackageFullName (the full package name of the modern app).

So first we'll need to get the PackageFullName of our desired modern app which we want to remove from our computer.

1. Just run following command in PowerShell to get a list of all installed apps:

Get-AppxPackage

This command will output a long list of all installed apps containing lots of information about each app. But we only need the PackageFullName information of our desired app, so run following filtered command:

Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName

This command will show only the name of the app and its PackageFullName information. Now the output will be easy to read and understand.

2. Now select the PackageFullName information of your desired app and press Enter key to copy it to clipboard.

3. Now to remove the app from your computer, you'll need to run following command:

Get-AppxPackage PackageFullName | Remove-AppxPackage

In above mentioned command, replace PackageFullName with the copied information from step 2. You can also take help of wildcards (such as *) to make the PackageFullName parameter easy to type.

Remove_Specific_App_Windows_10.png

For example, if you want to remove 3DBuilder app, the command to remove it will be as following:

Get-AppxPackage *3dbuilder* | Remove-AppxPackage

OR

Get-AppxPackage *3d* | Remove-AppxPackage

It'll take a few moments in uninstalling the app. If you see any error after completion of the command, ignore it. You may need to restart the computer.

NOTE:

The above mentioned command "Get-AppxPackage PackageFullName | Remove-AppxPackage" uninstalls the app from your current user account only. If you want to uninstall the app from all user accounts, you can use following command format:

Get-AppxPackage -allusers PackageFullName | Remove-AppxPackage

And if you want to remove the app from any particular user account, use following command:

Get-AppxPackage -user username PackageFullName | Remove-AppxPackage

Replace username term in above mentioned command with the correct user account name.

PS:

For your convenience, we are providing ready-made commands to remove built-in apps in Windows 10. Just copy the desired command and paste it in PowerShell window using Ctrl+V hotkey and press Enter:

Get-AppxPackage -user username | Remove-AppxPackage

NOTE: If you want to remove all apps but want to keep a few apps such as Windows Store, etc, you can use following command:

Get-AppxPackage | where-object {$_.name –notlike "*store*"} | Remove-AppxPackage

If you want to keep more than one apps, you can use following syntax:

Get-AppxPackage | where-object {$_.name –notlike "*store*"} | where-object {$_.name –notlike "*communicationsapps*"} | where-object {$_.name –notlike "*people*"} | Remove-AppxPackage

So you just need to use where-object {$_.name –notlike "*package_name*"} parameter in the command to keep a particular app.

  • In Win7 I had reinstated the Vista Windows Mail, which resembles so much the good old Outlook Express of the Win XP era.
    Even if I shunned the Win8 edition, I know that the same could be done, with small differences.
    Now, in Win10, I've tried to repeat the trick, with no success.
    Could you find a way to reinstate Vista Windows Mail in Win10?
    Thanks in advance.

  • Question: What's the benefit behind deleting built-in apps that do not have the uninstall option readily available? Would removing them actually clear enough space worth the process or help the device run better, i don't think they occupy that much space to begin with?

    I'm asking because I just got a new laptop with win10 on it and will definitely not be using most of the built-in apps. The OCD freak in me loves having all things clear and minimal so I would personally prefer not having any useless software on my device, but since I am not tech-savvy I worry about the consequences of tinkering with it... Could removing some of them (App connector, sway, Xbox... for example) potentially cause any complications?

  • VG

    ^^ Some modern/metro apps continuously run in background and consume system resources. Also uninstalling modern apps will disable them from default programs list and Windows will not waste your Internet bandwidth in updating those apps. If you are not going to use these apps, uninstalling them would be a wise choice.

  • Convinced! Thanks VG, will be using your tutorial to clear them up! Happy 2016!

  • Tried that but for each package that showed in the result command it result as Package was not found...

  • Now will these commands actually uninstall the applications or just hide them? I am prepping for a firm wide roll-out of Win 10 and there are certain apps we do not need installed or want the users to reinstall, such as Xbox, Mail, Store, Calendar, Movies, TV, etc. I have done what you list in step 1, but since we are on a domain the apps come back as that process just hides the applications. Is there no procedure that will actually uninstall them?

  • Unfortunately, after removing all your apps, microsoft are likely to reinstall them again. I've just had amazon, skype, xbox and a bunch of others reinstalled as part of Ms updates.

    Keep the script handy you are likely to need it again.

    Also running scripts in powershell is likely to be banned by execution priveleges. If you get a warning you can execute these commands type the following into powershell before running the above commands.

    Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass

    This removes all execution restrictions.
    To reset them to default, after running the script run

    Set-ExecutionPolicy remote

  • Hi VG, got a question, I ran the following:
    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage
    It removed it for the current user but new user got it back. Ideas?

  • It would be cool to run some Batch file and just remove annoying apps.

  • VG

    ^^ You need to open PowerShell as Administrator. It seems you directly opened it.

  • For anyone looking to prevent certain apps from installing for new users use this in a powershell admin console or script with admin rights (You can add or remove apps as you please. I intentionally left out the calculator and photo viewer. You may want to keep the store. I didn't):

  • Thanks for the guide, unfortunately I am facing the same trouble as Michael from a few comments above.

    I am designing a Windows 10 SoE image for a large scale deployment and I am required to have most of these apps removed.

    I've run the powershell commands as an administrator and with the -allusers command while the system is in Audit mode, but after the machine has been sysprepped these apps all reappear :(

    Now scratching my head on how to get rid of these.

  • Can I use this method to uninstall Microsoft Edge? I did try it with the exact syntax you have mentioned here with all additions that were needed, but, nothing happened after I clicked on enter. It did not in fact run a script at all. Is that how it works? I can still open edge and it is actually a very big nuisance. Mainly, when it keeps opening up when I search anything through cortana.
    I realize this is unrelated to the above issue but I wish to know also whether edge is a part of Office or not, because I have had Windows 10 for almost 6 months now but have not even had to use edge until now! I have been happily (quite ignorantly, I might add) using chrome as my default browser for any and every application, especially with cortana! (I had subverted cortana to use chrome with chrometana)

    I would quite desperately try to know of a solution to this issue!

  • This helped me. It is really annoying that every time I uninstall those apps, they get installed again after restart. Now that I deleted the Windows Store, hopefully, they won't go back.

  • Actually this way apps will not be deleted from WindowsApps folder, so they will still take some of your space on hdd.

  • how do i prevent apps from reappearing after sysprep?

  • OMG!!! I love you!!! This is the most wonderful panacea there is in the world, seeing all that garbage just being sent out one by one onto the limbo...

    Thanks for the easy-to-understand tutorial!

  • will these apps "come back" when you install the latest build. i read somewhere after 14936 it wont install apps if removed. btw an easier way to uninstall these is using ccleaners uninstall.

  • VG

    ^^ Yes. Check following:

    http://www.askvg.com/windows-10-will-not-reinstall-uninstalled-apps-when-upgrading-to-newer-builds/

  • The info on this webpage is partially wrong.

    The command "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers" does shows apps of all users.
    But Remove-AppxPackage always only removes it from the current user.

  • THANK YOU for publishing all of the tips!

    Microsoft decided to run push a software update the re-installed of the CR*P APPS that I had deleted.

    Your page provided a very clean, detailed set of instructions that helped me take back my computer!

    BTW -- I also used the anti-beacon tool by Spybot to shut off all telemetry going to Microsoft. Spybot also shuts down Microsoft's ability to turn your computer into a zombie machine/P2P device to push their crap to other computers.

    Many thanks again!

  • Hi,

    I use the following script to uninstall the apps for both existing users and new users. But no matter what I try, every time I end up with a broken start menu.

    I tried uninstalling each app separately, in different sequences, etc. Always the same result: broken start menu. Uninstalled apps are still showing, you just can no longer open them or do anything with them for that matter.
    Also it isn't just one app that causes this. One time it can be the feedbackhub, the next time the BingWeather. It is incredibly frustrating that it seems impossible to remove bloatware without breaking your system.

    echo "Uninstalling default apps"
    $apps = @(
    # default Windows 10 apps

    ^^ Some system apps can't be removed using the command. That's what the error message is telling.

  • oh ok thank you VG

  • yo, just telling that removing all apps with one command line did broke my start menu (searching ability). but that happened only after creators update, all worked fine without windows apps before that update. fixed by restoring all apps with this command that i found somewhere by searching how to fix start menu..

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    anyone can figure out what exactly/which app you must not uninstall when uninstalling them all. thanks :)

  • This is a great post, as many have already commented. I follow all the powershell stuff - but when I look at the list of applications, there are some I can't figure out whether to uninstall them or leave them. CandyCrushSaga is easy enough to understand, but I end up wondering what thinks like windows.immersivecontrolpanel is used for and whether I should keep it or blow it away. And particularly so since the last update...I mean, what is c5e2524a-ea46-4f67-841f-6a9465d9d515? They don't name that one anything that gives even a clue.

    Does anybody know of a site that lists the what the apps do to help sort out what to keep and not?

  • VG

    ^^ Some are system apps which can't be removed using PowerShell command as they are required by the operating system to function properly. "windows.immersivecontrolpanel" is one of them which is actually the Settings app.
