Most geeks spend quite a lot of time with games as children and young adults. What better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than sitting on a bed, keeping your body as still as it can be, and then immersing yourself in a false reality where other people put in the effort to do things instead for your pleasure.
It certainly beats having to do things yourself. The problem is that once you get older, you might find a lot of the time once used for gaming no longer available, because for some, life can get pretty challenging.
If you’re finding yourself with not much spare time up your sleeve for gaming anymore, you might prefer just removing the Xbox application from your Windows 10 operating system altogether.
If you know that you aren’t going to ever use something, then freeing up some of those resources so that your hardware doesn’t have to work as hard is always a good thing for your device’s longevity.
On the other hand, if you do have an Xbox and you still like to use it from time to time, you may want to choose to keep the Xbox app, even if you aren’t aware of any time that you would currently use it. The Xbox app allows you to track your gaming activity, gaming achievements, grab screen recordings from the games, and lets you interact with the Xbox Live community, where gaming is often more fun.
How to Uninstall and Remove Xbox App in Windows 10
From the search field in the taskbar, type “PowerShell” and then right-click on the Windows PowerShell ISE desktop application that becomes available under the best match section and choose to “Run as administrator.”
You’ll now have the Windows PowerShell window open on the computer’s display and running with the administrative permissions, which can be seen in the top left corner of the PowerShell window.
Copy and paste the following string of code into the PowerShell window and then hit “Enter” on your keyboard: Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxApp | Remove-AppxPackage
Wait for the process to complete, before then typing “Exit” to close the PowerShell window.
