    I've deleted all apps, but I have not been able to delete these empty links from the start menu.
    Any idea?



    Thank you


    Mixed Reality cannot be removed with Getappx commands, at least in the 1703 build. You may want to take a look at this: Uninstall Apps in Windows 10 - Page 31 - Apps Features Tutorials

    Brink posted a way to get rid of it from settings: Add or Remove Mixed Reality page from Settings in Windows 10

    Version 1709 - XBox Live / TCUI


    Hello Shawn, :)

    Under Version 1709 I have just noticed two new [unrequested] entries:

    Xbox Live in Settings | Apps & features
    Xbox TCUI in Windows Store | Downloads and Updates.

    Interestingly, the following commands worked fine, at least for me, to remove both of them (actually the -allusers string did the work, but I got no red message from the other).

    Get-appxpackage -allusers *Xbox.TCUI* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*Xbox.TCUI*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online

    Thank you Lamberto. :)

    It appears that app is only listed in Settings\Apps and not in the Start menu All Apps list. Odd.

    As a matter of fact it wasn't either in my system's Start menu (sorry I forgot to mention it).

    Hello SightUp, :)

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing the PowerShell window when you tried to uninstall People to help see what's happening.

    OK I now have time to actually to look into this more. Can you please help me create a .reg file to have the cmd window stay open after it has completed or give me instructions how to accomplish this?

    Just to verify, did you run the command below in OPTION TWO for the "People" app in PowerShell?

    Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.People* | Remove-AppxPackage

    If so, the PowerShell window should remain open after running the command.

    I do not typically use PS to do this. Do I need to go to the root to do this?

    PowerShell is required to run that command from Option Two.

    No need to do anything other than open PowerShell, copy and paste the command, and press Enter.
