    Remove all modern metro apps

    I use this PowerShell command to remove all modern metro apps from all user accounts:

    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

    However, it does not remove some apps and I have to remove them manually using:

    Remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.Office.OneNote_17.6027.10071.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

    So, is there a single command to remove all metro apps at once?

    Hello Omidsolo,

    If you like, you can use OPTION FOUR to remove all apps except the Store. This way you will be able to still install apps from the Store if wanted. :)
