Need to uninstall Windows 10 Built-in applications :: Bloatware

Post by dzcadii » Sun Jun 12, 2016 6:12 pm

Situation:
  • You “uninstalled” a Windows application only for it to come back again by right mouse clicking over the application and selecting “uninstall”. This only removes the reference for that particular user’s profile.
  • You can’t seem to find an uninstall option for an application in the Control Panel (new and old)
Solution:

Remove the applications using PowerShell in an elevated instance (assuming you have the appropriate access) *Note: Yes, it is possible to restore the applications later with PowerShell or getting it from the Windows application store.

Here are the commands and applications: *****PS: Run at your own risk*****
