Uninstalling built-in apps on Windows 11

Out of the box, Windows 11 bundles a suite of pre-installed applications. While these apps offer functionality, they might not suit everyone’s preferences or needs.

If you want to customize your Windows 11 experience with a cleaner and sleeker appearance, the following Windows PowerShell will help you remove unwanted applications.


  1. Open the Windows PowerShell as an administrator:
    Press “Win + R” to open the Run dialog, type “powershell” and press “Ctrl + Shift + Enter“.
  1. To list all pre-installed applications, enter the following command:
    Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName
PowerShell Get-AppxPackage
List of all pre-installed packages.
  1. To remove a specific application, use the following command and specify the package name. Furthermore, to remove an application for all users, you need to add -allusers.

    In our example, I will remove the “Microsoft Outlook for Windows” application for all users:
    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *Microsoft.OutlookForWindows* | Remove-AppxPackage
PowerShell Remove-AppxPackage
Removing the Microsoft Outlook for Windows package for all users.
