    How do I delete Metro Apps?


    This is absolutely the stupidest beta, I have ever seen.

    How in the world are we supposed to manage our apps? How do we delete them? I have 97 apps and no idea what 80 of them are, a clean install should just load the essentials unless directed to do else wise.

    Right click on the app and choose 'Uninstall'.

    Of those 97 apps you must have installed most by yourself. By default 28 modern apps will be installed (including Store and Feedback) so it seems you are the reason you have so many apps.

    Default modern apps in Windows 10 Technical Preview:

    Ahh, I have to reboot to remove Icon. I swear I right clicked before and uninstall was not an option, weird.

    I have several Acers, it must be partly their bloatware too. I just think it is way to many.

    I am trying to delete the Skype app. In the settings>system>apps & features, I click uninstall and nothing happens. So I opened administrative powershell and typed

    Remove-AppxPackage -package Microsoft.SkypeApp_3.1.0.1007_x86_kzf8qxf38zg5c

    and I keep getting errors. Have I got it wrong? Missing a space, or quote or something? How the heck do I get rid of this?

    "keep getting errors" doesn't tell anyone anything. WHAT errors? Be explicit.

    There's a powershell script I've had pretty good luck with.

    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?

    Doesn't work for the majority of the preinstalled apps. Specifically, "Uninstall" is not an option offered when you right-click on the app name in the All Apps list for things like the calculator, alarms & clock, camera, etc. It's definitely not an option available for the new Outlook Mail & Calendar app or the new Outlook People app that came preinstalled in PC Build 10061. I wish it were that simple. I would kill to be able to get rid of the new Outlook apps and go back to the original Mail, Calendar & People app until they get the worst of the gremlins out of the new Outlook apps.
