Scripts to uninstall Windows Store apps

Windows 10 comes with a set of pre-installed apps. However, not all apps might be useful in an organization. Using Hexnode, the administrators can deploy scripts to uninstall Windows store apps.


The Sample Scripts provided below are adapted from third-party Open-Source sites.

Batch Script

E.g., To remove the app Notepad saved in C drive,

msiexec /x "C:\TEMP\XmlNotepad.msi" /qn

Powershell Script

E.g., To remove the system app Alarms & Clock,

Get-AppxPackage * Microsoft.WindowsAlarms * | Remove-AppxPackage


  • It is recommended to manually validate the script execution on a system before executing the action in bulk.
  • Hexnode will not be responsible for any damage/loss to the system on the behavior of the script.
