ASC is a highly regarded utility that also does much more than facilitate uninstalls - it's a very good registry cleaner, and does other stuff. You can check it out here: CLICKY
Anyway, I'm asking again, because I used the 'confirm' command and after about the sixth confirmation on packages I didn't know, that got tired, so I just selected 'a' for all... however it wound up also deleting the MS Store and didn't get trid of other apps that are still there. Having previously used the command line to remove Xbox, the IoBit utility alerted me to latent registry entries, so while the app is gone, it's really not purged, hence my uncertainty.
This thread has been stickied, as one, such as myself, or perhaps, others with hasty intent, may be inclined to open PowerShell and use @Neemobeer 's solution to rid of "Modern UI" apps once and for all.
TechNet originally wrote a very pretty page for this function. It might be of interest to members to see how the process works. I did use in initially, in Windows 8, but subsequently decided to make use of several of the Apps.
So yeah, I was so happy when I found 3 Clever PowerShell Functions After Upgrading to Windows 10 on friday but today my Windows Store went crazy and I couldn't download anything so basically I tried every command and everything to bring it back to life*. After this Store Cache - Clear in Windows 8 everything works normally but all the apps I have removed are back. What kind of sorcery is this?
*Happened because I disabled Windows Store in Settings->Privacy->Background apps. Silly me.
Ok I know I'm really late with this but nobody mentioned what I do to take care of this. I use the Classic Shell Start Menu. There are three styles of start menus plus a ton of other mods. I've used it exclusively ever since the Win7 Preview.
