How To Remove All The Built-In Apps In Windows 10

When you get Windows 10 on your laptop or PC, it comes with multiple built-in apps. You require a few of them, but most just fill the precious disk space nothing else. Hence, you need to get rid of them if you want more disk space.

Here, in this article, you will find all the necessary steps to get rid of the built-in apps in Windows 10.

  1. Use the Refresh Windows Tool

The Refresh Windows Tool is provided by Microsoft for free. It is an app that allows you to get a clean version of Windows 10 on your PC or laptop.

You can download the tool from Microsoft and run it to install the unencumbered version of Windows 10. The catch here is that it removes all the applications except for the core ones. So, it will remove all the apps which you have downloaded as well. Hence, you need to keep a backup of the data before you run the tool. Also, keep the original disks or files of the applications that you want to download again.

For that, you need to see the next method.

  1. Use the command line

Using the command line to remove the applications becomes much easier once you know the method. You need to go to the Start Menu first and type the Powershell to reach the Windows PowerShell.

In the PowerShell, you can type the following command to remove an app,

Get-AppxPackage *app name* | Remove-AppxPackage
