    How did using the command below in PowerShell from Option 2 work for you?

    Get-AppxPackage *Photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Well, it didn't. brought up lots of errors including access denied, unauthorized access -- here's the whole thing using PowerShell ISE,

    PS C:\Users\Alvin Alias> PS C:\Users\Alvin Alias> Get-appxpackage -allusers *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage : Access is denied.
    Access is denied.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-appxpackage -allusers *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: ( [Get-AppxPackage], UnauthorizedAccessException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Comma
    nds.GetAppxPackageCommand
    Get-appxpackage : Access is denied.
    Access is denied.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-appxpackage -allusers *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: ( [Get-AppxPackage], UnauthorizedAccessException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Comma
    nds.GetAppxPackageCommand

    Then in plain PowerShell, I got,

    Try the command in an elevated "PowerShell" to see if that may work better.
