  1. How do I PERMANENTLY uninstall XBox?


    I'm not a gamer and have zero interest in XBox. However, it keeps showing up in my Taskbar. I've tried uninstalling it both by right clicking on the icon in the Taskbar, and through Settings>Apps. However, every time I reboot.... there it is again. It's eating up resources I'm a video editor so I need all the resources I have available and to me XBox is just bloatware. It's making me seriously consider switching to Linux at this point. How do I get rid of XBox?Thanks

    :)

  2. Want to UNINSTALL XBox

    Hi Kristi,

    Xbox App is one of the built-in applications on Windows 10. To uninstall it from your computer, you have to perform the following steps using the Windows PowerShell:

    • Click Start, and then type Windows PowerShell on the search box.  
    • Right-click, and then select Run as administrator.  
    •  Type the following command to uninstall Xbox app: Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage
    • Hit Enter.  

    If you are unable to uninstall the app, reset Windows Store to clear the store cache and try to uninstall the Xbox app again.

    Here's how to reset Windows Store:

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard.   
    • Click on Command prompt (Admin).   
    • Type wsreset.exe, and then hit Enter.   

    Keep us updated with the results after performing the suggested solutions above.
