Windows 10 comes with a set of bundled apps which are installed for all users by default. Some of them like Calculator or Photos are intended to replace classic Windows apps. Others are new to Windows 10 and provide various online and offline services. One such app is the Get Help app. If you found no use for this app, you might want to delete it. In this article, we will see how it can be done.
The app comes bundled with Windows 10. It can be found in the Start menu.
You can use Get Help to resolve your upgrade issues, ask and track questions related to your billing and Microsoft Account, along with asking for more information and topics.
The app is formerly know as "Contact Support".
Recently, I have covered how to get rid of the Contact Support app in Windows versions prior to Windows 10 version 1709 "Fall Creators Update". A number of users report that the trick doesn't work for the Get Help app . Here is a new option for the recent builds of the OS.
To uninstall Get Help in Windows 10, do the following.
- Open PowerShell as administrator.
- Type or copy-paste the following command:
Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.GetHelp* -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
- Hit the Enter key. The app will be removed!
With PowerShell, you can remove other apps which come bundled with the OS. These include Calendar and Mail, Calculator, Facebook, and many more. The procedure is covered in detail in the following article:
