    How to get rid of "You Phone" ?


    I was trying to get rid of the "Your Phone" app, It works ok most of the time, but sometimes it doesn't. After playing with it for 6 months I want to "Uninstall" it. It won't let me. The "Uninstall" button is "Greyed out". I have been able to turn all of its options off, and it seems to be leaving my cell phone alone.

    But there has to be a way to totally uninstall it ?

    Any ideas guys ?

    Open an elevated PowerShell prompt and run this command:

    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.YourPhone -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

    I just use CCleaner, it can uninstall all the Windows Store apps including the ones that don't have an uninstall option such as Your Phone and Cortana

    Revo Uninstaller Portable will do it as well.

    Sounds like a solution.
