Uninstall/Disable OneNote metro app RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the easiest way to accomplish removing or disabling access to the OneNote app that comes pre-loaded with Win 8.1 through group policy? With Office 2013 we really don't want our students using the app since it has reduced functionality.

  • Hi Manasquan,

    Thank you for your question.

    We could refer to the following link to uninstall OneNote:

    Get-AppxPackage *onenote* | Remove-AppxPackage 

    We could run this Powershell in GPO by the following link:

    If there are any questions regarding this issue, please be free to let me know.

    Best Regard,

    Jim

  • Sorry for any confusion, but I am not trying to uninstall OneNote 2013.  We want to use OneNote 2013 (the office product) but NOT the OneNote APP that comes in Win 8.

    Is there a way to mass-uninstall or disable it through group policy or SCCM?

  • That worked.  Just a follow-up, can that be run at startup under the system context or would be it need to be run for each user individually?

  • This answered my  question. Now the store says "Install App" instead of "Launch".

    Thank you,
