    Powershell Pro's Unite!~ (help me reinstall a default app)

    So I got a little overzealous with my bloatware pruning and have managed to rectify 99% of it. The glaring item/entry I can not re add is the Xbox Game Speech Window.

    The package is Microsoft.XboxSpeechToTextOverlay

    Anyone care to walk this simpleton through the proper commands to powershell it back into place? :)

    This tutorial tell you how, but doesn't include that particular app. Option two is a list of command lines for reinstalling individual apps.

    Reinstall and Re-register Apps in Windows 10

    It is included in this tutorial though, so it should be possible to work out the correct command line from the two.

    Uninstall Apps in Windows 10

    Or we could just ask @Brink :)

    Hello @klepp0906, :)

    Have you already tried the command below in an elevated PowerShell?

    I'm not sure it will work if the account you run it in has it uninstalled though.

    Get-AppXPackage *Microsoft.XboxSpeechToTextOverlay* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}

    Hi brink, I just tried to run it and it did nada.

    no text and brought me back to C:\

    thanks for the reply btw. Ive just spent a solid week top to bottom daily getting my pc back to pre mobo dying/upgrade condition and now im fretting i managed to break the install lol.

    Fwiw ive looked high and low and apparently the Winstore folder is front and center to this working? Problem is i dont have it on this pc, and ive checked two other windows 10 pcs and it doesnt exist there either.

    Worst case, is said package uploadable so i can add it where I need it to get it back on the pc? >< I cant format,i cant. Im on home stretch and about to actually be able to settle in for the long haul/USE the pc and now this.

    (yea i know i sound desperate)

    If this is for a Microsoft account, then you might check in "My Library" in the Store app to see if this app is listed to be able to select to reinstall.

    I did check that im afraid. Its simply not there. During my digging i found this site Provisioned Packages (Provisioned Apps) in Windows 10 Pro s IT Blog which links to all the apps in the store and notice one of if not Thee only app with a notation indicating its not in the store - is the one im looking for.

    Argh. I know this can be done w/out dumping windows. Just well outside my "hardware enthusiast/gamer" scope :P


    as usual - thank you for your time and help!
