how to remove skype from windows 10 anniversary (build 14393.67)

Windows10Version14393.67In the last post I stated that Skype hadn’t been re-installed. Turns out I was wrong. When I typed ‘skype’ in the search box I got the Skype application, which I at first thought was a reference to the version in the Windows Store. That was actually the official Skype application.

To remove Skype completely, I performed the following:

  1. Open up a power shell
  2. Type ‘Get-AppxPackage *skype* | Remove-AppxPackage’ at the prompt
  3. Search for skype again, and get ‘No results found for ‘skype”

You’re welcome.
