    Some of the Modern apps can be uninstalled from the new Settings feature.

    SETTINGS > SYSTEM > Apps & Features

    Select to display "By Name" and scroll to the one you want to uninstall (Or just search for the specific app if you know its correct name). Click/tap on it and you will see boxes for "Move" and "Uninstall". Some of the preinstalled apps will allow you to Uninstall. Some of them won't ("Uninstall" will be greyed out). I was able to uninstall the Outlook Mail & Calendar app but not the new People app (arrrgggghhhh!!!).

    Seems the "help" isn't much help?

    Oh wait - I see a problem - I have Apps instead of App.....

    DPC Watchdog Violation over and over on this thing....finally got back to it - but can't get it to work:

    So I did it from a C:\ prompt:
    Remove-AppPackage -package Microsoft.SkypeApp_3.1.0.1007_x86_kzf8qxf38zg5c

    and I got an error code 0x80010108. Is that a clue?
    Your syntax is wrong! Type like this in PowerShell (as administrator):

    Remove-AppxPackage [full package name].

    Btw, I'm using build 10240 (RTM).
