To remove an app or package you have to type the following command, and make sure to replace the <Name> with the name of the package and press enter.

Get-AppxPackage <AppName> | Remove-AppxPackage

In my case, I will remove the Microsoft.BingWeather, the command will look like this.  Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.BingWeather | Remove-AppxPackage

Or You can run the following command to remove the apps or package.

Get-AppxPackage *Name* | Remove-AppxPackage

Well, If you want to remove all the apps and packages, except for one of them, you can run the following command.

Get-AppxPackage | where-object {$_.name –notlike “*calculator*”} | Remove-AppxPackage

Remember that in the above command, I have only allowed the calculator, all the other apps will be removed.

The same way you can remove all the apps and packages, you can restore them too with the following command, but I still prefer to use the restore that you created before.

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
