  • See :

    DISM App Package (.appx or .appxbundle) Servicing Command-Line Options

    You may also Copy and paste this into the address bar in the explorer window (without quotes)

    “AppData\Local\Packages\4DF9E0F8.Netflix_mcm4njqhnhss8\LocalState\offlineInfo\downloads” and press enter.

    You’ll go directly to the Netflix download directory

    Spotify does save temporary and cache files inside the AppData folder.

  • Hello

    How are you trying to remove the packages?

    Which release of Windows 10 are you using?

    You should be using DISM or Powershell to remove the packages and you need to remove provisioned packages

    (/Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage)

    See this link for more detail

    DISM App Package (.appx or .appxbundle) Servicing Command-Line Options

  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

    Based on my experience, we can remove a preinstalled app, including the license and custom data files, from a Windows image by using the DISM.exe tool or the DISM cmdlets in Windows PowerShell. For example:

    Dism /Image:c:\test\offline /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:microsoft.devx.appx.app1_1.0.0.0_neutral_en-us_ac4zc6fex2zjp

    For more information, please refer to the following link:

    Best regards,

  • Hi Guys, thanks for reply.

    The problem is not with uninstalling Appx packages... The problem is with 'suggested' (nstaller shortcuts that Windows 10 creates on the Start Menu) apps which MS is pushinging into layout. Such as game, spotify, news,etc... After deploy OS this  games are automaticlay installing... And I want to stop the automatical install of this apps and remove them from layout...

    But I do not know how... 

    I found this this, but creating reg dword does not help me...

  • Hello,

    Which release of Window 10 are you using?  
    Which edition are you using?

    Domain joined or not?

    Have you tried 1903, there were changes made in 1903 to limit the number of apps that get push installed on Enterprise\Education and Pro domain joined machines.

  • Hello,

    Try 1903, they took a number of changes to make this much better.

    I don't recall there being a way to change the behavior in earlier releases
