    Fall Creators Update and Get Help app removal


    So i've just installed the Fall Creators Update, and the Powershell command that I used before to remove the Get Help app isn't working anymore:

    Remove-WindowsCapability -online -name App.Support.ContactSupport~~~~0.0.1.0

    I suspect they might of renamed it, but I tried The above replacing ContactSupport with GetHelp and it did nothing as well. Though the app does not appear under Optional Features to remove like it did under Creators (though Quick Assist still does.)

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Never mind its listed as an app now. The above wount work but:

    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.GetHelp | Remove-AppxPackage

    Works in Powershell.
