    Removing Paint 3D


    I uninstalled Paint3D with a .bat file with the command “PowerShell -Command "Get-appxpackage -allusers *Microsoft.MSPaint* | Remove-AppxPackage"” and it does remove the app but when I right click an image, the shell pops up and “Edit with 3D Paint” is still present.
    I have three questions.

    1. Why doesn’t the uninstallation of the app also remove it from the shell menu?
    2. Is there anything I can do to change the command so it does remove it from the shell menu?
    3. How do I remove it from the shell menu?

    FYI:

    Add or Remove Edit with Paint 3D context menu in Windows 10

    Why doesn’t the uninstallation of the app also remove it from the shell menu?

    I don't know but that's a fairly common problem with other software.

    What other software? I'd like to remove any other traces of crap I can.

    UWTSettings context menu entry from Ultimate Windows Tweaker is one I can think of. Uninstall does not remove it.
    I've seen many others over the years but can't be specific.

    These help you track down entries:

    I should point out - don't worry about it unless you notice a leftover context menu entry when right clicking a drive, folder or file.
    You might get different entries depending upon the file type.

    You can actually uninstall Paint 3D directly now without the need for bat files.
