Intune: ‘Remove built-in Windows app’ setting explained

[German]In the Microsoft Intune (Azure) is a new setting option 'Remove built-in Windows app'. With this option administrators are able to remove built-in apps from a Windows 10 install. ### The article ist outdated, MS has removed the described feature. ###


I'm not in using Intune and Azure to manage Windows 10 client fleets. But I just came about the following tweet and tought it might be of interest for administrators using Intune.

The option allows a new setting to remove specific Windows built-in apps on a new Windows 10 device using configuration policy settings. You can remove the Windows built-in apps:

  • Mixed Reality Viewer
  • MSN Weather
  • App Installer
  • Microsoft Tips
  • My Office
  • Microsoft Solitaire Collection
  • Mobile Plans
  • Feedback Hub
  • Xbox
  • Groove Music
  • Mail
  • Calendar

Further details may be read within this Microsoft document. Addendum: The article has been updated on Sept. 26, 2022, saying now "What's new".

    I see nothing about removing Windows built-in apps when I look at the Microsoft document at the "Further details" link. Did Microsoft change the document or is the link going somewhere you didn't intend?

      Seems, the MS post has been altered. My blog post is from April, the MS article was revised last time on May 15, 2020.

      No need to remove this post – added a remark, that the Microsoft support article has been updated a few hours.

      • PC says:

        The feature no longer exists, and there is nothing about it on the Sept 26 "What's new" section. You clearly value clicks to your blog over removing bad information, got it

          It's silly to read from people about "clicks in this blog", it they have no clue at all …
