Some of the Built-in Apps in Windows 10 are not useful and they can’t be easily deleted from the programs and features. I am going to show you how to easily uninstall Built-in apps using PowerShell.

1. Click on Start and type powershell once you see it on the result right click on it and select Run as administrator.

NOTE: If you want to remove all the default apps at all users at once just type in Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage.

If you want to remove all the default apps and also all the apps installed from windows store at once type Get-AppxPackage -User | Remove-AppxPackage (replace User with your username)
