    Hello John,

    You might double check using the tutorial below to see if it may be able to help with the Mail notifications.

    Hello,

    Let's say I want to remove far more apps then I want to keep. For instance, Photos, Calculator, Voice Recorder and Store. Is there a way to modify the Option 4 command to save those 3 additional or do I need to just use option 3?

    Hello Codi, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It looks like you may need to use option 3 to be able to cherry pick the ones you want to uninstall.

    Not quite safe to remove App Connector


    From here: Nobody Knows What Windows 10's "App Connector" Is, and Microsoft Won't Explain It

    App Connector seems to be related to MS Azure App Services like OneDrive and possibly Office 365 connectors like Connectors and API Apps Reference that might optionally need to take pictures or know what country you’re in as some services might have restrictions or optimizations by location for services they can provide.

    Hello Codi, I posted a command syntax for that here: Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums

    W10 deployment leftover tiles


    Has anyone figured out how to keep those @{packagename} tiles from showing up for new users (see quoted attachment)? I'm trying to deploy W10 to my organization and this is keeping me back from handing out machines to users.

    I don't know how these apps got corrupted. It seems to be when my Photos App got corrupted however afterwards I couldn't use OR remove these Windows 10 Apps from my computer. I tried using several methods to remove them.

    First I used the sfc /scannow which told me there were no problems. I even tried the Windows 10 Fix program from this very forum but kept setting errors in the Power shell for these listed apps even though clearly they weren't being used. Finally I used the Admin Windows Power Shell as suggested in this thread and they seem to have been removed OK. I did have another App in the Others section but was easily able to remove this KoboBooks App by right clicking and uninstalling it from the Settings menu. KoboInc.KoboBooks_5.0.258.0_x86__vk8qsnw174y90


    Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*CommsPhone*"} | remove-appxpackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*Messaging*"} | remove-appxpackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*people*"} | remove-appxpackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*windowscalculator*"} | remove-appxpackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*windowscamera*"} | remove-appxpackage
    Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*zunemusic*"} | remove-appxpackage

    I daren't remove the Windows Store App using this line of code
    Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*windowsstore*"} | remove-appxpackage


    I am now going to re-boot to see if these broken apps have also been removed from the Other Menu maybe I will have to remove the Windows Store App but not sure if I can get it back again ?
