Reinstall Windows 10 Apps

Posted by

Are you one of the IT pros that uninstall all or some of the built-in apps in Windows 10 and now changed your mind? This is how you remove them and get them back with PowerShell!


Remove an app

Get-AppxPackage *windowsmaps* | Remove-AppxPackage


Remove the provisioned app

Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online | ? {$_.DisplayName -like “*maps*” } | foreach { Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -PackageName $_.PackageName -Online }


List all Provisioned apps, and locations, these are possible to reinstall

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Select Name, PackageFullName, InstallLocation


Reinstall/Register all apps

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”


Reinstall/Register one app

Get-AppxPackage *windowsmaps* -AllUsers | foreach { Add-AppxPackage -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -DisableDevelopmentMode }



Store or apps crashing or do not start?

Try the built-in troubleshooting wizards



Also keep WSReset.exe in mind if you have problem opening Microsoft Store or an app. Just run WSReset in an elevated command prompt.
