    Hello @ziffel,

    Unfortunately, some of the default apps that Windows uses cannot be uninstalled.

    If you already uninstalled an app for your account, it also won't let you uninstall it for all users from within your account afterwards.

    If you like, here are some more ideas below for freeing up hard drive space that may help.

    Thank you Brink. I figured that might be the case. It sucks, because I know that space is just being wasted on nothing.

    I have already freed up space using techniques in that guide you linked, but thanks anyway.

    Seems there are some new unwanted games with 1803.

    Disney Magic Kingdoms
    Bubble Witch 3 Saga
    March of Empires: War of Lords

    @Brink do you have the magic words to remove them?

    Build 1803

    (To remove Disney Magic Kingdoms app from all current accounts on PC)
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *A278AB0D.DisneyMagicKingdoms* | Remove-AppxPackage
    (To only remove Disney Magic Kingdoms app from new accounts created afterwards)
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*A278AB0D.DisneyMagicKingdoms*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    (To remove Bubble Witch 3 Saga app from all current accounts on PC)
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *king.com.BubbleWitch3Saga* | Remove-AppxPackage
    (To only remove Bubble Witch 3 Saga app from new accounts created afterwards)
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*king.com.BubbleWitch3Saga*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    (To remove Hidden City: Hidden Object Adventure app from all current accounts on PC)
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *828B5831.HiddenCityMysteryofShadows* | Remove-AppxPackage
    (To only remove Hidden City: Hidden Object Adventure app from new accounts created afterwards)
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*828B5831.HiddenCityMysteryofShadows*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    (To remove DolbyAccess app from all current accounts on PC)
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *DolbyLaboratories.DolbyAccess* | Remove-AppxPackage
    (To only remove DolbyAccess app from new accounts created afterwards)
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*DolbyLaboratories.DolbyAccess*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    (To remove Xbox gaming Overlay app from all current accounts on PC)
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay* | Remove-AppxPackage
    (To only remove Xbox gaming Overlay app from new accounts created afterwards)
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online

    If you don't use anything other than VLC for waching videos, then you could uninstall the Web Media Extensions

    (To remove Web Media Extensions app from all current accounts on PC)
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -allusers *Microsoft.WebMediaExtensions* | Remove-AppxPackage
    (To only remove Web Media Extensions app from new accounts created afterwards)
    Code:
    Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*Microsoft.WebMediaExtensions*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    Thanks to @Brink for this this very useful tutorial, @Lmbrt for his test and @Bree

    This does not work: Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes* | Remove-AppxPackage

    It appears to have uninstalled in PowerShell, but it is still present in the menu. PowerShell displays some information in light blue for maybe a second and then deletes it.

    Does it still open Sticky Notes from the shortcut still in the Start menu?

    If not, then you might see if signing out and in may clear it from the menu.

    Hmm, I just tested the command on my system, and it still uninstalled Sticky Notes and removed it from the Start menu (All Apps list) for me.

    What build do you have installed? Maybe it's a bug in that build.

    You might see if using the all users option to uninstall "Sticky Notes" may work better for you.

    -AllUsers gives me an Error 87.
