Windows Bloatware


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

Here I like to post some tips for people using Windows especially Windows 11 and 10. 

As most of you probably know Windows comes with some app that load in the background and some that you cant (easly) remove. When you open Task manager you can see how many Processes are loaded and running, these can slow down your performances. 

To shut some of them down (that you normally can not do) here is how: 

1. Open powershell with admin privileges. 
2. Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers
3. Remove-AppxPackage -Package "name of app/Package you like to remove"

You can also make it into a string (full command) to delete known Packages.


Get-AppxPackage -allusers XboxApp | Remove-AppxPackage


A few of the Packages I like to remove after a new windows installation: 

Get-AppxPackage -allusers XboxApp | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage -allusers Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage                   
Get-AppxPackage -allusers Microsoft.549981C3F5F10 | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.YourPhone -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
get-appxpackage *Microsoft.WindowsCamera* | remove-appxpackage
Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.GetHelp* -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage *people* | Remove-AppxPackage


Some even harder apps to remove are Windows Edge. And this does even not works on all systems anymore!

1. get-appxpackage *edge*
2. You will see complete details of Microsoft Edge. Find ‘PackageFullName’ and copy everything opposite to it to "fullname"
3. remove-appxpackage "fullname"

After doing some Bloatware removing of my own my pc has 103 possesses running. (see dutch system picture)
