How To Uninstall/Remove Default Apps from Windows 10 (One by One App Or All At Once)

Windows 10 comes preloaded with a lot of default apps. Depending on which version you have1, you will see various apps in your start menu that you don’t want. I previously explained how to uninstall OneNote from Windows 10, but you can actually remove any app you want.

1. You will need to find PowerShell (or PowerShell ISE). Go to start and type PowerShell. You need administrator rights, so right click on it and choose Run as administrator.

2. In the PowerShell window, type the following command and then press Enter key to get a list of all default apps and universal apps installed from the Store.


3. Scroll down to see the app that you want to uninstall. 

Copy the package name of the application as we can’t uninstall an app by just entering its name. The package name appears right next to PackageFullName.

4. To uninstall the app, type the following command:

Remove-AppxPackage PackageFullName

In the above command replace PackageFullName with the full package name of the app you want to uninstall and press Enter.

5. To remove all default apps from all user accounts, at once, just use following code:

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
