    Okay, Brink, never mind that

    There are a few XBOX apps that appear on the list (in a .txt file) that I have created, and I am having the same difficulty in uninstalling them. I do not own or use an XBOX so I'd like to remove them. Here are their names, as given in that list:

    - Microsoft.XboxGameCallableUI
    - Microsoft.XboxIdentityProvider

    The above appear as "apps" in the .txt file. Are these Apps? Can I uninstall them?

    Thank you.

    EDIT:
    Hmm... I've Googled the names of a couple of other Apps that appear on my list. Windows.MiracastView to project to a screen wireless-ly, and Microsoft.BioEnrollment which is for "Windows Hello". I do not need neither of these so I've tried to remove them. It is not possible

    You don't want to uninstall apps used by the system. Usually, it won't let you since they are in use.

    Basically, if you can't uninstall an app using the normal method in the UI, then it won't uninstall in PowerShell either.

    Option 5 - wmic


    Hey Shawn

    If I use Option 5, it doesn't seem to work out quite the same way as it does in your screenshot.

    If I type "wmic product get name" in step 2, then I end up back at the command prompt. See my screeenshot.

    But in your screenshot you seem to end up at "wmic:root\cli>".

    This means that if I type "product where name=”name of program” call uninstall" as step 4, I just get an error saying 'Product' is not recognised as a command, I guess because I'm back at a command prompt and not within wmic?

    I suspect that typing "wmic" on its own before step 4 would make it work out?

    Or maybe this command would work directly from a command prompt? (I've not tried this yet.)

    "wmic product where name=”name of program” call uninstall"

    Hello David,

    Thank you. It looks like it changed. I updated the commands in OPTION FIVE, and will get the screenshots updated now.

    Does that mean I have no way of uninstalling the "Groove Music", "Film & TV", "Photos", "Mail and Calendar", "Maps", Weather", "Alarms & Clock", "Voice Recorder", "People" and "Camera" apps?

    Hello Ojustaboo,

    Yes, you can install them if you like if they are not currently in use.

    However, most of those are the default apps in Windows 10. Unless you have another app set as the default instead, it could cause issues to uninstall them.
