Find the List of All Installed Apps in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Last Updated on December 3, 2017

Windows 10 comes with a lot of pre-installed apps in the form of packages in the OS.

If you are someone who doesn’t like too much useless stuff on your computer, here’s a tip for you. You can actually view and remove a lot of these apps from your PC without breaking anything.


Using the PowerShell, you can view the list of all the installed apps on your PC which are currently taking space on your drive. In the following tutorial, I’ll show you how you can get a list of all these apps.

How to List all the pre-installed apps in Windows 10

  • Press Windows + X to open the context menu on the start menu. Select Windows PowerShell (Admin) and select Yes in the UAC window. This won’t work without administrator privileges.
  • In the PowerShell window, you can use the command Get-AppxPackage to get the list of all installed apps. Type Get-AppxPackage and press Enter. You’ll get a very long output in the PS window. You can scroll through it to see which apps you have.
  • If you like to keep things a little organized, you can also get the output of this command in a text file. But, before running the command, make sure that you know the currently selected directory in the PowerShell window. PowerShell will output this file to the directory from which you run the command. To keep things simple, you can run the following command to switch your working directory to the Desktop.
    cd $env:userprofile\Desktop
  • Now, run the following command to output the list of all the apps on your PC to a file named myapps.txt in your Desktop.
    Get-AppxPackage | Out-File myapps.txt

You can open the myapps.txt using notepad or any text editor on your PC. The format of each app and their details listed as follows:

Name              : Microsoft.Windows.Cortana
Publisher         : CN=Microsoft Windows, O=Microsoft Corporation, L=Redmond, S=Washington, C=US

From this, you can see the details of each app.
