    Hello Maggy,

    I'm sorry, but which apps are you trying to uninstall for all users? I'll do some testing to see what may be wrong.

    If you like, you can use the tutorial below to disable OneDrive integration to remove it for all users.

    So I ran Powershell as an admin on the non-admin account to try to remove the apps, (again using the all users script) but this didn't work - I get an error saying the app package can't be removed because it isn't installed. But it is still there and it works; it's not just the tile still sitting on the Start screen.

    Any suggestions?

    Also, when I try to remove onedrive - which has an uninstall option - I get taken to the Programs and Features screen, but I can't see it on there so have no idea how to delete this either .
    I believe this is due to the fact you are running the Powershell as Administrator. You already mentioned you have removed the apps from the Admin profile, so when you open a Powershell as admin (even when logged in as any other user), it refers to the Admin profile, where the apps no longer exist, hence the error....

    Unfortunately I don't know how (or even if possible) to get round this but I think this is also causing the issues I have described over the last few posts....

    Shawn, I'm trying to remove apps like Calendar, TV and Movies, People, Phone, Weather and others from the list you made at the start of the tutorial.

    Thank you for the Onedrive link. I will have a look at that.

    Neenz, I did wonder whether it would work if I changed the second account to an admin account while I did the delete. But if the script was supposed to delete the apps from all users, then it should have removed them when I ran it on the original admin account shouldn't it?

    Maggy,

    Did you use OPTION FOUR for all apps except Store?

    No Shawn,

    I used Option 3 and selected the specific apps that I wanted to remove. I copied your scripts into Powershell and ran them one by one.

    Maggy,

    Just to verify, did you use the command for "all users" and not for "new accounts"?

    If you run the command below in an elevated PowerShell, are the apps you want to uninstall still listed as installed?

    Get-AppxPackage -allusers | Select Name, PackageFullName

    Hi Shawn,

    Yes, I'm using 'all users'. I ran the 'new accounts' one in error before.

    Here are some of the apps I want to remove (and have successfully removed from one account already using these scripts):

    Get-appxpackage -allusers *windowsalarms* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *Appconnector* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *getstarted* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *ConnectivityStore* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *bingfinance* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *zunevideo* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *bingnews* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *onenote* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *people* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *CommsPhone* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Below is a small sample of what I see when I run Get-AppxPackage in Powershell. It's not easy to copy from the tablet but hopefully you will see a couple of the packages noted above:

    Microsoft.NET.Native.Fra
    Microsoft.VCLibs.140.00
    windows.devicesflow
    Microsoft.Reader
    Microsoft.BingTravel
    Microsoft.3DBuilder
    Microsoft.XboxApp
    Microsoft.WindowsCalcula
    Microsoft.WindowsSoundRe
    Microsoft.WindowsReading
    Microsoft.ZuneMusic
    Microsoft.BingWeather
    Microsoft.Messaging
    Microsoft.WindowsStore
    Microsoft.WindowsScan
    Microsoft.Windows.Photos
    Microsoft.CommsPhone
    Microsoft.Getstarted
    Microsoft.ConnectivitySt
    Microsoft.WindowsMaps
    Microsoft.Office.OneNote
    Microsoft.MicrosoftSolit
    Microsoft.WindowsAlarms
    Microsoft.People

    I know I have also removed others that appear on this list using the script. But the Powershell showed all these plus money, health, and others that I removed using the Uninstall button (so they don't really uninstall it seems).

    OK, Trying to enter something like:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*HPPrinterControl*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    throws an error unless you remove the -online part at the end.

    Been trying to get rid of HP All-in-One Printer Remote for days and it keeps installing without my consent.

    Hello HoneycombWX,

    That command would only uninstall it for new accounts instead. You might see if the command in OPTION SEVEN may work better.

    Is it installing via Windows Update?

    Maggy,

    Sorry I missed your post.

    The commands you used should have uninstalled them from all users, and not just from the current account. It appears that unless you use the command to uninstall all Store apps except the Store may work for you.

    You could do a repair install to start over uninstalling the apps for all users to see if what you previously did may be the issue.
