    How do I uninstall XBOX related applications?


    So I've noticed Microsoft are really trying hard to integrate Xbox with your PC and I don't own an Xbox and never will so I have no need for the software, but I cant seem to find a way to uninstall it, can someone tell me how I can go about uninstalling all this bull***t Xbox bloatware please, thank you in advance

    I think that you only get Xbox apps if you install them. There is no way to uninstall things that haven't been installed yet.

    If you do find any such apps on your computer, right click on their icon and select uninstall.

    Just unpin that from the start menu. You can't uninstall that app. And it's not going to install Xbox apps unless you tell it to.

    Why do you answer if you donīt know??

    - Run Powershell as Administrator.
    - Run command: "get-appxpackage | select name,packagefullname" (displays list)
    - Look for "Microsoft.XboxApp"
    - Copy the fullpackagename (on the right side, long name...)
    - Type "remove-appxpackage <packagefullname> (replace <packagefullname> with the fullpackagename you copied)

    reboot
    itīs gone!

    This may also be helpful to remove/uninstall other apps:
