Executing PS command and no Output

David VerPlanck 1 Reputation point

I'm sure this is answered somewhere already, but after a couple hours of finding things that don't answer this, I just need to ask...

I open a PS console, as admin, execution policy not restricted,

When I run...
Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxApp_48.69.18001.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

It completes immediately and returns nothing.
I check C:\Program Files\WindowsApps and it is still there.
I don't want to just delete the folder since its "installed".

What am I missing?

Thank you,

    Try the package name instead of the full name

    Get-AppxPackage  Microsoft.XboxApp -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
