Windows 10: uninstall all modern apps with a single Powershell command

I have already explained how to uninstall a Metro/Modern app using Powershell on Windows 8, but some readers ask me how to ‘clean’ the new Windows 10 from all pre-installed Apps.


The solution is simple and fast:

  1. Press the “Win” key on the keyboard and type “Powershell”
  2. When it comes up in the search results, right click on it and choose “Run as administrator”.
  3. Type the following commands in the Powershell window: Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online (to remove all Modern apps for new users) and Get-AppXPackage | Remove-AppxPackage (to remove apps from current user account)

Some apps cannot be uninstalled: Store, Edge, Windows Feedback, Settings,Contact Support, Cortana, Photos.

That’s all!
