MS Store Apps - Remove

MS Store Apps – Remove

Several months ago, I discovered that uninstalling an MS App from the Start Menu doesn’t remove it from the system.
They are simply hidden for your current account.

This can be a problem when you are trying to free your disk, when you discover that you are updating an App that you never used or you don’t use anymore (like preinstalled games).

This shortcut allows you to remove completely these Apps.

All items are divided into 3 main classes:

  • normal UWP apps installed
    From here, the system and MS Store items are filtered out for safety reasons.
  • installed and unused Frameworks pack.
    Remove these items only if you know what you are doing.
    Anyway MS Store seems to reinstall any package needed.
  • UWP apps installed into development mode.

NOTE: the used commands are supported only by WIN10 newer than 18xx(?)
