Remove default Windows 10 Apps

WARNING: Removing Windows 10 Apps can make your system unstable. I had issues with my NUC after removing some default applications. Don’t do this in your master Enterprise image! Block apps with AppLocker instead.

Use the following PowerShell command to check which Windows 10 Apps are installed:

Get-AppxPackage | Select Name

Make sure that you get all the packages that you want to delete in one view. For example:

Get-AppxPackage | Where {$_.Name -ilike "Microsoft.ZuneVideo" -or $_.Name -ilike "Microsoft.WindowsCamera"}

To remove those packages, pipe it to Remove-AppxPackage.

Get-AppxPackage | Where {$_.Name -ilike "Microsoft.ZuneVideo" -or $_.Name -ilike "Microsoft.WindowsCamera"} | Remove-AppxPackage
