    How did using the command below in PowerShell from Option 2 work for you?

    Get-AppxPackage *Photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Well, it didn't. brought up lots of errors including access denied, unauthorized access -- here's the whole thing using PowerShell ISE,

    PS C:\Users\Alvin Alias> PS C:\Users\Alvin Alias> Get-appxpackage -allusers *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxpackage : Access is denied.
    Access is denied.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-appxpackage -allusers *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: ( [Get-AppxPackage], UnauthorizedAccessException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Comma
    nds.GetAppxPackageCommand
    Get-appxpackage : Access is denied.
    Access is denied.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-appxpackage -allusers *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage

    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: ( [Get-AppxPackage], UnauthorizedAccessException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Comma
    nds.GetAppxPackageCommand

    Then in plain PowerShell, I got,

    Try the command in an elevated "PowerShell" to see if that may work better.

    Thank you sir. You were my savior when I ran into problems in Windows 7, and it looks like you are my go-to guy for Windows 10. I thank you sincerely.

    hi there guys...

    I'm not sure what's happening here, hope you could help me.
    New and clean Windows 10 Home installation, upgraded to latest stable build available at today (the one with Creators Update hint in Windows Update settings), local account. I removed a bunch of apps first by simply unistalling them and then by removing the local package for every user. Apps are not listed anymore in PowerShell but the weird is that when I open the Store it see those apps as one to be updated! But it's no even installed, and if I open one of that apps details page in Store it clearly says: Install (Obtain, don't know the English translation) instead of Update!

    In details, what I did was first unistall apps I did not want with last method in OP, that is by unistalling from Appllications Settings section (Get Office, Get Skype, Solitaire) and then check in power shell with
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage*-AllUsers
    removed apps were still there, so I used
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*packagenamehere*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    and now apps are not listed, so I guess they have been copletely removed.

    Still, apps are listed in the Store as updates available!
    Do you have any clue? Maybe I should reset the Store? I know it's safe but when it came to Windows I'm Always doubtful!

    Hello brainvision,

    It looks like you uninstalled the apps from your account only the first time, then for new accounts the 2nd time.

    The "Get-AppxPackage*-AllUsers" command will list the app packages for all users instead of just your account (current user).

    Try the command below instead to see if the apps are still listed for you account (current user).

    Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName

    It could be from them being there previously. See if canceling their update and resetting the Store cache may help.

    apps updates are blocked from auto running so they're not running, actually; did you mean that by cancel update?

    EDIT: really, as said, those are not updates 'cause apps are not installed

    EDIT2: nope, resetting Store cache did not solve...

    could it be related to the fact that my account is still a local account? don't know what's happening..

    They are listed as having available updates in the Store from your screenshot. Are you able to cancel the updates in the Store for them?

    sorry I fear I didn't got you.. they are not updating now, they're listed as updates but untill I press Update they will not do anything because I disabled automatic updates of apps..

    BTW I think I can easily solve this by installing and then removing, who cares? Still, weird thing but I don't want to go mad at that!

    EDIT: so I installed GetOffice, now I can see it in my list and in the AllUsers list. How to properly remove it now? Do I have to use directly

    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*packagenamehere*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    don't I?
