How to Uninstall Groove Music App from Windows 10

Groove music is the default application in Windows 10 for playing music and video files. This application is the revamped version of Xbox Music that was introduced with Windows 8. Though this application is quite impressive and lets you buy music from the store as well.

Unfortunately, a lot of users opted for disabling Groove Music and setting the old Windows Media Players as their default player for music and video clips. Though Groove Music is amongst the best music player applications for Windows 10, and Microsoft keeps on updating it with new features. But, still where a lot of users disabled it, at the same instance a lot want to uninstall it from their computers. Perhaps, they weren’t impressed with its features or appearance.

Uninstall Groove Music App from Windows 10

So, if you are one of those users who have requested to completely uninstall and remove Groove music from their Windows 10 operating system, then below is a very simple guide explaining to you how exactly you can do it.

Guide to Completely Remove Groove Music App

  1. It didn’t work. Upon following the instructions, I just got this:
    GET-APPXPACKAGE-ALLUSERS : The term ‘GET-APPXPACKAGE-ALLUSERS’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function,
    script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is
    correct and try again.
    At line:1 char:1
    + GET-APPXPACKAGE-ALLUSERS
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (GET-APPXPACKAGE-ALLUSERS:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

    I don’t understand.
