Uninstall and remove default Windows 10 apps
Windows 10 comes with preinstalled apps that cannot be uninstalled through the standard means. The way to uninstall these apps is through PowerShell. Here’s how:
- Open PowerShell as Administrator
- Use the command “Get-AppxPackage *<Enter App Name Here>* | Remove-AppxPackage”.
As an example, if you want to remove Microsoft Get Help, you would type in: Get-AppxPackage *Get Help* | Remove-AppxPackage
If you wanted to remove Microsoft Maps you would type in: Get-AppxPackage *Maps* | Remove-AppxPackage
You can confirm that the app has been uninstalled by going to Apps & features and making sure it’s no longer listed.
