  1. Uninstalling an app


    I was trying to uninstall an app on my computer and it keeps on telling me that the app is still running I should close it. When I clicked 'ignore', it tells me that I should run the Setup Wizard. What does that mean? How do I get the app pff my laptop?

    :)

    Hello Geoff, Uninstalling an app :)

    Q1) If it's a built-in app, then the user can restore the app using that tutorial only if the app was uninstalled for their account and not for all users. Being able to restore an app that was uninstalled for all users using the PowerShell command is currently broken in Windows, and break all built-in apps if used. The only way to restore them then is to do a repair install.

    Q2) That's correct. If a built-in app is not listed in under step 3 in OPTION TWO, then it can't and be uninstalled. Those would be apps that are used by Windows, and shouldn't be uninstalled. For example, Microsoft Edge.

    Q3) I haven't tied it to know, but I would assume that to be so.
