How to Uninstall Built-in Apps in Windows 10 (and how to reinstall again)

  Uninstall the App the normal way


Some applications can be uninstalled in the usual way. Just right-click on an item in the “all apps” list in the “Start” menu and select “Uninstall”.


This method works with Get Office, Get Skype, Get Started, Microsoft Solitaire Collection, Money, News, Phone Companion, and Sports apps. You can also remove bloatware applications installed by your PC manufacturer using this method. However, other Microsoft Apps including Windows 10 cannot be uninstalled this way.

Use PowerShell to Uninstall Built-in Apps


You can remove most of the built-in applications using the PowerShell cmdlet. This will not remove some of the most important built-in apps, including Cortana and Microsoft Edge. If you try, you'll see an error message saying they can't be deleted. Here's how:


First, open PowerShell as administrator. Type “PowerShell” in Cortana, then right-click PowerShell, and select “Run as administrator.” Select “yes” to accept the UAC prompt.

How to reinstall all Built-in Apps


If you want the app to be reinstalled, you can restore all apps with a line of PowerShell code. Again, open a PowerShell window as Administrator. Copy and paste the following command into PowerShell and press Enter:


Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}


This command tells Windows to install the default application. Wait for some time to finish. You will have all the default apps back.
