    Unable to Uninstall Apps Multi-Profile Wide

    Hello, I am working for a company where we're trying to rollout some new Tablets with Windows 10; as these tablets are to be used with specific tasks in mind and potentially across multiple profiles, it would be ideal if majority of the Apps were removed PC wide. We already have it set in the group policy to disable the App Store and Cortana, and I have found many options online for running PowerShell scripts to remove the apps (Eg. Gett-AppxPackage *zune* | Remove-AppxPackage ) but when I attempt to add the -allusers portion to the code, it continues to only make the changes to the immediate profile. I have tried running this from the admin profile, and a secondary profile (running PowerShell as admin of course) but it continues to only make the change on the current profile, and the changes do not carry over to newly created profiles.

    Any suggestions at all would be appreciated, as I am running out of options to try online. If you require any more information to help troubleshoot this, just let me know.

    Hello Imarch and welcome to the forums. have you tried setting the execution policy to unrestricted?
    Set-Executionpolicy Unrestricted 
    When finished you can set it back to restricted which I am sure you would. I don't know if that would help your situation. See if there is anything here that will help. The author of this tutorial may be able to help if you post in that thread. PowerShell PackageManagement (OneGet) - Install Apps from Command Line - Windows 10 Forums
