How To Remove Windows 10 Preinstalled Apps

You are a Windows 10 or 8 user that’s why you are here searching on the process to Remove Preinstalled Apps on Windows 10? I am also using Windows 10 and I know how many Preinstalled Apps they have in this version. It all started with Windows 8. They are adding these apps so that it is easy for users with a touch input display. It is Ok to think of your consumers but they should have given an easy way to uninstall these apps too.

Do not worry guys, here is the solution to your problem and it’s a very easy one. You just need to copy-paste some of the commands and the rest work is of your computer. When we click on the All Apps button, we see a whole bunch of useless apps. All these preinstalled apps are rarely used. They are more of a smartphone app than a computer app. The following are methods to Remove Preinstalled Apps on Windows 10.

1. BY UNINSTALLING PREINSTALLED APPS.

Some of those apps can be simply uninstalled. Follow the steps written below to try this method.

  1. Click on Start.
  2. Click on All Apps.
  3. Scroll till you find the desired app.
  4. Right-click on its name.
  5. Click on Uninstall.

You are done. Most of the apps can be uninstalled using this method. Read the next method if you can not see the Uninstall option in the options list. If there is no Uninstall option, then that app can not be removed using this method.

2. USING POWERSHELL TO REMOVE PREINSTALLED APPS.

Most of the users may not have heard about Powershell. Powershell is a tool that is much more powerful than the command prompt. As I stated above, users have to copy-paste some of the commands to Remove Preinstalled Apps. Follow the steps written below to try this method. Keep in mind that you have to run PowerShell as Administrator.

FOR WINDOWS 8/8.1 USERS

  1. Press Windows key + Q.
  2. Type Powershell.
  3. From the results right-click on Windows Powershell.
  4. Click on Run As Administrator.
  5. Type the following command to remove all apps.

Get-AppxPackage –AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

FOR WINDOWS 10 USERS

  1. Type Powershell in Search the web and Windows bar.
  2. Right-click on PowerShell from search results.
  3. Click on Run as Administrator.
  4. Click on yes in the dialog box that follows.
  5. Now type following commands to remove all the Preinstalled Apps.

To uninstall all apps using one command type following command

Get-AppxPackage –AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

Note– It will uninstall all the apps. Even the games and apps you downloaded from Windows Store. I suggest deleting each file individually by Following the step below:

HOW TO PRE-INSTALLED APPS INDIVIDUALLY

  1. Start Windows Powershell
  2. Write the following command to get the list of all the apps for all the users.

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | ft Name, PackageFullName -AutoSize

  1. Now you will see a list of all the apps as shown in the image below.
  1. Now take note of the app you want to remove.
  2. In my case, I will be removing Microsoft Whiteboard
  1. Once you know the app name, type the following command and your app will be removed.

Get-AppxPackage *Whiteboard* | Remove-AppxPackage

7. Of course, you have to change the name inside the asterisks ** to your desired app.

here You go, using this method, you can remove the pre-installed apps in Windows 10. If you have any query related to it, drop a comment in the comment box given below.
