This tutorial will show you how to remove those pesky apps in the start menu that lack an uninstall option. Enjoy! 

 

Note to Administration: I now realize that I goofed by not reading the guidelines. Please, feel free to remove this thread if needed and I will submit it properly. 

 

Step 1: Run Powershell as an Administrator.

Step 2: Run the command "get-appxpackage" to list all the apps currently installed.

Step 3: Locate the name of the app you want to remove, then copy the PackageFullName associated with it.

Step 4: Type in "Remove-AppxPackage -Confirm -Package <PackageFullName>", replacing <PackageFullName" appropriately.

Step 5: Confirm your action.

Step 6: ???

 

Step 7: Profit. (The app should now be removed from your system. Feel free to remove more, or close powershell.)
