Windows 10 comes preloaded with a wide range of apps. Some are very useful, but others, such as the Xbox app can take up valuable space. If you are not an Xbox user – or not even a gamer in general – you may wish to remove this app from your Windows 10 computer. But there is no straight forward process to follow, namely, Microsoft did not make it easy to uninstall this software.
Luckily, here is a trick to fully remove that Xbox app (and the associated green icon in your start menu) from your operating system.
First, go to Start and type in Powershell. Right-click on it and choose Run as administrator. Okay you are almost there, this was the hardest part! Now copy the following text (right-click, copy):
Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxApp | Remove-AppxPackage
and paste it into the Powershell window. Then, press enter to execute the command. Wait a few seconds in order for the command to be executed.
Done. You can close the Powershell window and have another look at your start menu. You will see the Xbox app is fully removed from your computer.
