So I ran the following in my PowerShell:

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

This has made Windows 10 SOOOOOOOOOOOO much better. My question is, what if someday I want to restore some of those disabled apps? Right now, there isn't really anything in the Microsoft Store I want... but who knows, maybe in 6 months, there could be some good stuff in there. How would I go about restoring the Microsoft Store app sometime down the line?

  • You would need provide a source to the packages and I assume use Install=AppxPackage but you honestly should have done a backup before you did that command or understand how to reverse it before you did it. – Ramhound Aug 5 '15 at 10:50

Currently there are three solutions depending on how deep you are in deleting apps.

The easiest one.

The medium one.

The longest one.

Try them one by one until you'll be successfull.

  • Unfortunately, it does not. That code simply tries to reinstall the existing modern apps that you CAN'T uninstall from the code I posted. This is stuff in the windows/SystemApps folder. However, the store app is in the windows/InfusedApps folder. So the above code does not install any disabled modern apps. – Jason Axelrod Aug 5 '15 at 8:46
  • Sorry, I missed that you loose the Store app. Here is the updated answer. – Badiboy Aug 5 '15 at 8:51
  • @Badiboy - Can't you just summarize what the author should do in this question? If you are just linking to existing answers, why shouldn't this question be closed as a duplicate, of those questions if their answers are the answer? – Ramhound Aug 5 '15 at 10:51
  • @Ramhound: After checking if the solution from link #2 works for me too, I'll reduce the answer and will left only summary. – Badiboy Aug 5 '15 at 11:46
