Get-AppxPackage gets a list of the app packages that are installed in a user profile.

An app package has an .appx file name extension. To get the list of packages for a user profile other than the profile for the current user, you must run this command by using administrator permissions.

Examples

Remove the app package named package1_1.0.0.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe from the current user account:

PS C:\> Remove-AppxPackage -Package "package1_1.0.0.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe"
