    Remove-AppxPackage does not appear to be working in Windows 10 1511


    Hi there.

    I like to remove the default apps that are bundled with Windows 10. Since upgrading to Windows 10 1511, the following commands do not appear to be working for me in Windows PowerShell (running as Administrator ofc)

    Get-AppxPackage *3dbuilder* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *windowsalarms* | Remove-AppxPackage

    .... etc

    No error message is displayed and equally no green confirmation message. Running "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers" I see the apps simply remain installed. It's like Windows is ignoring my commands. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

  2. I wouldn't mind Windows X if I could

    I retyped the above with the correct spacing for easier reading and easier copy and pasting:

    I just found out how via

    3 Methods to Uninstall Default Apps in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Insider

    There are some apps such as Mail, Movies & TV, Calendar, Calculator, People, Camera, Photos, Maps, Store and Weather can’t be uninstalled from the Start menu. To remove them, you have to use the PowerShell.

    Step 1: Launch the Start menu, go to All apps and go down to the folder labeled
    Windows PowerShell

    Step 2: Right-click on
    Windows PowerShell
    and select Run as administrator

    Step 3: When a window appears and asks if you want to allow this app to make any changes to your PC,
    click Yes

    Step 4: Type the following command in the Powershell command line (Admin) to remove the camera (for example):

    Get-AppxPackage *windowscamera* | Remove-AppxPackage

    You can use the same command to uninstall other default apps but you have to replace
    windowscamera with the following text. The single asterisks
    are necessary:


    Get-AppxPackage *3dbuilder* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *windowsalarms* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *windowscalculator* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *zunemusic* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *windowsmaps* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *zunevideo* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *onenote* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *people* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *windowsstore* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *soundrecorder* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage (does not work it seems =/)

    Just copy and paste each line for the program you wish to uninstall in
    Powershell
    . I have been having a tremedous problem since the November 1511 Windows 10 update to get
    Groove music app (zunemusic) to not crash once it starts so I uninstalled it completely using the above command. If anyone has new code or update for Groove please post below this so I know it is fixed.

    Groove (and the other apps above) can not be removed via the
    Start
    > System > Apps & Features list. Which makes me wonder why Microsoft does not allow us to have control of our own computer. Those apps listed above have the
    Uninstall button greyed out for some ungodly reason.
