    Have 3 I can't get rid of...

    Hello Sprite, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Since you want to get rid of all built-in apps, you might see if using step 2 in OPTION FOUR of the tutorial below may be able to help.

    Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10

    Your system works brilliantly except for 3 apps...I can't get rid of iHeart radio, Flipboard and Minecraft. I'd love to get rid of these for my business systems. Stupid as hell of Microsoft to put them into the Enterprise edition. Any help getting rid of those, would be appreciated!

    I've tried these commands to no avail:

    Current Users:
    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *ClearChannelRadioDigital.iHeartRadio* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *Flipboard.Flipboard* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *Microsoft.MinecraftUWP* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Future Users:
    Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -like *ClearChannelRadioDigital.iHeartRadio*} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online
    Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -like *Flipboard.Flipboard*} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online
    Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -like *Microsoft.MinecraftUWP*} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online

    Hello Mertz, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you mean the ones for these pinned to Start, then those apps are not actually installed. They are just advertising links that take you to the Store to install them.

    You can just unpin them from Start to not see them anymore though.

    I get that...but was hoping to make them not appear at all since I have many different users that may log into the machine. They won't have admin rights, but it could still cause trouble. Is there a way to make them not show up with each user?

    You might see how using the tutorial below to set a default Start layout may work for this. You could setup your Start menu how you want it, then apply it to all users.

    The tutorial below is for Windows 8.1, but is the same in Windows 10 except the policy is named "Start Layout" now instead of "Start Screen Layout".
