    Thanks for the quick response.
    Is it normal for ALL of the AppxPackages listed in RED below?

    Again, thanks for the quick response.
    I'll work on a way to exclude those programmatically...

    I have a couple more questions (if it's not stretching the relationship):
    • I'm guessing the unremovable options change dependent on Windows version?

    mine is 1511 (OS Build 10856.104) 64 bit

    • Do you know if PowerShell supports the standard cmd options like FOR, IF etc. ?

    Something like:
    for $pName not in (keeplist.txt) do Remove-AppxPackage $pname

    Q1) It should be the same in all builds and versions of Windows 10 since those apps are system apps used by Windows.

    Q2) I'm afraid I don't know on that one.

    I'll check it out and get back to you with my results (hopefully a batch file or script that will do the trick)

    Edit: This looks like a good start http://www.tomsitpro.com/articles/po...oop,2-845.html

    Remove apps for a specific account


    I am finding that Get-appxpackage -User xyz *candy* | Removeappxpackage still only deletes for current user (and not for user xyz). Furthermore attempting to run the command again throws a *cannot remove *candy* as it is not installed error even though it is still installed for user xyz (but not for the current user)?

    Hello Eireannach,

    Did you try the command from OPTION THREE for all accounts?

    Yes - similar results . It looks like an app can only be uninstalled ( perhaps also for other accounts ) if it is installed in the account one is working from.

    That's the way it works if you use the command for "current account", but the command for "all accounts" should uninstall the Windows app for all accounts on the PC.

    If you deleted apps for all users and then made a new user without removing the apps from provisioning apps will repopulate.
    Since they don't exist any more under your, admin account, you can't remove them.
    What I ended up doing is temporary promoting the new user to admin, running the command to remove apps from all users under that new user's account, then demoting it back to normal user. Then remove the apps from provisioning.

    Wasted to much time to do this right.
    Hope this helps someone.
