    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.
    Hi Shawn,

    Your first comment - are you saying that using the script to uninstall all apps except Store might work? The 'unless' is confusing me.

    I'm now getting an error when I switch on the tablet so it's possible I might end up reinstalling the OS (because of course I forgot to switch on System Protection so have no restore points ), so that repair install could be the way to go.

    Maggy,

    Sorry. Yep, it was saying the command to remove all apps but Store for all users may work, but it may be best to start over with a repair install to see how it goes afterwards.

    In the end I reverted to W8 and upgraded again, as I didn't have enough memory to do the repair install.

    Anyway, I used the script to remove apps from all user accounts, and the same thing happened: apps removed from the admin account but not the other account.

    And when I switched on the tablet today. some apps that I had successfully removed from the non-admin account via the uninstall button had reappeared including Candy Crush Saga . But this did not happen on the admin account (i.e. Candy Crush Saga didn't reappear there).

    I tried opening Powershell as admin on this other (non-admin) account and ran the script to remove an app from the current account. This also failed.

    So now I'm not sure what to do. Do you think it would work if I change the non-admin account to an admin account?

    Maggy,

    It wouldn't matter if the account was admin or standard. It appears that the all users option is still buggy in these latest builds of Windows 10.

    If you don't have to many accounts, it may be best to try using the uninstall from "current user" option in each account.

    I absolutely LOVE this thread, and I really appreciate the information. It has helped us with our Windows 10 distribution and sysprep issues at our school. One quick question, though...

    Can you add the BOOLEAN test AND to the exceptions list? For example, what if I want to keep STORE, PHOTOS, and CALCULATOR and delete all of the other apps for ALL USERS and FUTURE/PROVISIONED users. Would I just add 2 more copies of the "where-object" part of the script?

    Hello mjmrad, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It doesn't appear that "Boolean" is a default app, and I don't see it in the Store.

    I suppose you could reinstall Photos and Calculator afterwards if it's just for your PC.

    Thanks for this Shawn.

    I did actually try the uninstall from 'current user' on the non-admin account (had to enter an admin password to get Powershell to run of course) but this didn't work after I'd run the 'all users' scripts on the admin account.

    I think I will leave things as they are for now as the non-admin account (that still has the apps) isn't much used. And wait to see what future builds bring...

    It's for a lab environment, so I'm needing the provisioning part to work as well (all users) in preparation for Sysprep.

    I just wondered if you could use the boolean operator AND as a part of the script. For example, could you tell the script to exclude *store* and *photos* and *calculator* in the same script.

    mjmrad,

    I'm not sure if you can exclude multiple items like that in the script. The documentation for this command at TechNet below doesn't seem to mention anything about multiple items

    To uninstall Candy Crush Soda Saga for all users, and new users created afterward:
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *CandyCrushSodaSaga* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage -online | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*CandyCrushSodaSaga*"} | remove
    -appxprovisionedpackage -online
