windows built reinstall apps 10’s how them uninstall

tarekma7How to Uninstall Windows 10’s Built-in Apps (and How to Reinstall Them)
#1
Quote:Windows 10 includes a variety of universal apps, and there’s no easy way to hide them from the “All Apps” view in the new Start menu. You can uninstall them, but Microsoft doesn’t allow you to easily uninstall them in the usual way.

Before we get started, we should say that we don’t really recommend uninstalling the built-in universal apps. These apps take up very little space on your device, so it’s best to just ignore them if you don’t want to use them. You should also be aware that it’s likely that Windows updates (especially major ones like the Fall Creators Update) will reinstall those apps anyway. But, if you really want to uninstall them, you can. And, if you’ve already uninstalled included apps, you can get them all back with a single command.

Uninstall the App Normally

You can install some apps in the normal way. Just right-click an app on the Start menu—either in the All Apps list or the app’s tilke—and then select the “Uninstall” option. (On a touch screen, long-press the app instead of right-clicking.)

This trick appears to work for the included Get Office, Get Skype, Get Started, Microsoft Solitaire Collection, Money, News, Phone Companion, and Sports apps. You can also uninstall bloatware apps your PC manufacturer has installed using this method. It even works for apps that are “automatically downloaded” by Windows 10, such as Candy Crush, FarmVille, TripAdvisor, Netflix, and Pandora.

However, you can’t remove most of Microsoft’s other included Windows 10 apps this way.

If you keep reading, we’ve got the instructions on how to uninstall these built-in apps using the command line, but if that’s not your style, you can always use the CleanMyPC uninstaller tool to remove them with a simple point-and-click interface.
CleanMyPC is a paid app and some of its features are not free, but there’s a free trial, and it has a pretty solid uninstaller that removes extra stuff Windows won’t find.
Just download and install the tool, flip over to the Uninstaller tab on the left, find the apps on the right, and click Uninstall. That’s all there is to it.

Use PowerShell to Uninstall Built-in Apps

You can uninstall most of the built-in apps—even ones that don’t normally offer an “Uninstall” option—with a PowerShell cmdlet. Note, however, that this trick won’t allow you to remove a few of the most important built-in apps, like Cortana and Microsoft Edge. If you try, you’ll see an error message saying they can’t be removed.
First, open PowerShell as administrator. Hit Windows+X, and then choose the “Windows PowerShell (Admin)” option from the Power User menu.
