System apps installed with the Windows client OS

Applies to:

  • Windows 10
  • Windows 11

On all Windows devices, the OS automatically installs some apps. These apps are called system apps, and are typically installed in the C:\Windows\ folder. On your Windows devices, you can use Windows PowerShell to see the system apps automatically installed.

This article lists the built-in system apps on some Windows OS versions, and lists the Windows PowerShell command to get a list.

Use Windows PowerShell

To get a list of all the system apps, use Windows PowerShell:

  1. Open the Windows PowerShell app as administrator.

  2. Run the following script:

    Get-AppxPackage -PackageTypeFilter Main | ? { $_.SignatureKind -eq "System" } | Sort Name | Format-Table Name, InstallLocation
    

The output lists all the system apps, and their installation location. For more information on this command, see Get-AppxPackage (opens another Microsoft website).

The following information lists the system apps on some Windows Enterprise OS versions. Your specific OS version and image may have different apps. To confirm your app list, run the PowerShell Get-AppxPackage command (in this article).
