How to remove Windows 10 bloatware applications


Windows 10 comes with a lot of bloatware such as Skype, the "Get Office 365" ad, games, and so on. Worse, these apps cannot be removed through the UI. Fortunately, there is a series of commands which system administrators and power users can use in order to remove those items.

Simply open a PowerShell window as a local Administrator, and run the following commands:

<powershell>
get-appxpackage messaging | remove-appxpackage
get-appxpackage sway | remove-appxpackage
get-appxpackage commsphone | remove-appxpackage
