    This happens for any provisioned package I attempt to remove (as listed by Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -online).

    Actually, Option Three of that tutorial was my introduction to Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage.

    In your screenshot, you have an error in the command. You shouldn't have the gray -package included in the command.

    Instead, it should be this below substituting the part in red with the Finance app name instead.

    remove-AppxProvisionedPackage PackageFullName

    Get-Help indicates that PackageName is not a positional parameter (that would be [-PackageName] <String>). It can be piped though. Actually, this cmdlet has no positional parameters.

    Very odd. Structured this way, the command works:

    PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*BingFinance*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    Path          :
    Online        : True
    RestartNeeded : False
