Window apps comes back after Deleting

I am trying to get apps like Solitaire, Candy Crush, Twitter, 3D builder, Get Office, Get Skype removed on some of my companies computers that are not network joined. 

I have right clicked in start menu, uninstalled.

Gone to apps and features, uninstalled.

Used PowerShell commands like Get-AppxPackage -allusers PackageFullName | Remove-AppxPackage

And they keep coming back. Why?!? How do you get them permanently deleted?

Also annoying is sometimes its in start menu but not in apps & features and vise versa...Never consistent

I'm looking for a way to remove them without having to sign on as the user, but everything I try after a restart the same day or sometimes the next day they are back

Also where can I find GPO instructions to get these blocked on the start menu or uninstalled or hidden?

Hi Michelle,

I would suggest to kindly check again if the computer is connected to any domain from the system properties.

Follow these steps:

  • Press Windows Key + X.

  • Click System.

If the computer is not connected to any Domain, I would suggest you to switch the Microsoft Account to local account, then from local account to Microsoft account, and then uninstall the apps and check it works.

Switch your local account to a Microsoft account.

  1. Go to Start, and select Settings > Accounts > Your accounts.
  2. Select Sign in with a Microsoft account.

You might have to verify your password.

Switch your Microsoft account to a local account.            
  1. Login in with your Microsoft Account.

  2. Type Sign-in options in the search bar and click on it.

  3. Click on, your email and account.

  4. Then click on, “sign in with a local account instead” and follow the on-screen instructions.

I hope the information is helpful.

The employees do not have microsoft accounts nor does the organization want each one to create one.  I am just looking for a way to permanently delete apps like solitare, candy crush, and get office when logged in as administrator of the computer.  Why is that such a difficult thing to accomplish?

Hi Michelle,

  • Are the computers connected to domain?

If so, your question would be better suited for the IT Pro audience in TechNet.
