    It's available as a free app from the store. Perhaps an accidental click on one of these 'occasionally show suggestions in Start' installed it? I certainly don't have it in 1709.
    It may definitely be the case.
    Thanks a lot and sorry again

    No worries. It's fine to be added to the tutorial.

    1709 - Print 3D

    Thank you Shawn, :)

    To make amends, may I bring to your attention another supposedly 1709's infiltrated app?

    IMHO, Print 3D is a child of 1709 because I got it in two different systems under Windows Accessories after clean installations of Windows 10:

    Interestingly, the following commands worked fine, at least for me:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*Print3D*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *Print3D* | Remove-AppxPackage

    I keep applying the -online command before the -allusers one because in the past empirical evidence suggested that a little more stuff is removed this way.

    All the best

    Get Office --> My Office

    Hello Shawn, :)

    Sorry to bother again, but [under 1709] I noticed a [new] app:

    Apparently there is a strong connection between Get Office and My Office and, according to my experience, applying the same *officehub* commands (MicrosoftOfficeHub) will produce different results on both of them depending upon whether this is done after a clean installation of 1709 AND the MS Office suite is installed or not.

    To sum it up :
    1. after a clean installation of 1709 (and before connecting to the net), applying the *officehub*commands will remove the Get Office app which is the only one in the Start Menu and make the whole package disappear in WindowsApps
    2. otherwise, clicking on Get Office will add the My Office entry in the Start Menu; clicking again on the first one will produce no further result, while My Office will normally open the corresponding app
    3. at this point, applying the *officehub* commands will remove the My Office entry, but NOT the Get Office one (or the package); as expected, click again on Get Office and you get My Office again.
    4. Get Office will disappear though after installing the MS Office suite which will also add the My Office entry in the Start Menu (if not previously done, see 2.) and, in this case, the *officehub* commands will produce its deletion
    5. just to complicate things a little more, it is interesting to notice that selecting the Uninstall option after right clicking on Get Office produces absolutely no results, while... it works fine with My Office making it disappear
    6. in conclusion it would seem that after the introduction of My Office there is no way of getting rid of the Get Office (get...-get) entry for good unless it is done straightaway after a clean installation (and before connecting to the net ?) or... getting MS Office for real.

    A bit messy...

    Should you find the above results of any interest, perhaps you may want to consider to add a note for those using the *officehub* commands that may produce an unexpected result, i.e. removing the My Office app instead of the Get Office one.

    Thank you for your patience. Bests :)

    Hello Shawn, :)

    Not sure, but maybe someone might find of some interest the fact that WinZip Universal, which is one of the suggested (pending) apps under version 1709, can be successfully uninstalled applying the -online and -allusers command lines to the package *WinZipUniversal*.

    Only if the app has been (accidentally) downloaded, of course.

    Respectful bests
