How To Un-Install Windows 10 Built-In Apps

[Use PowerShell Commands For Easy Uninstallation]

Just like any other operating system Windows 10 too comes with it’s own set of built-in apps. Ideally, these apps are put in place to help people get used to their new computer without having to worry about installing programs.

However, for experienced users these apps can be a nuisance as they often take up unnecessary space and don’t often function to the best of their abilities.

While some of these apps can be removed through the basic uninstallation process, the rest of the apps can be a challenge to take care of. To remove these stubborn apps, you can also use PowerShell uninstall commands.

To use these commands, follow these steps:

  1. Open “Start Menu”.
  2. Search for “PowerShell”.
  3. Right Click on the software to “Run As Administrator”.
  4. Inside the PowerShell Prompt, enter one of the following commands and press “Enter” to uninstall.
