Remove preinstalled apps

With Windows 10 comes a bunch of preinstalled apps, some of them most people won’t need (for example OneNote or Candy Crush). But the problem is that you can’t remove them all with a simple right-click in the start menu. Here’s how to remove them:

  1. Open PowerShell as a administrator (Open start menu, type "powershell", right click "Windows PowerShell", click on "Run as administrator")
  2. Run the following command (replace AppName with the name of the app you want to uninstall, e.g. OneNote or StickyNotes):
Get-AppxPackage *AppName* | Remove-AppxPackage
