How To Remove Groove Music From Windows 10

173 ratings | 13200 views
How To Remove Groove Music From Windows 10 Windows 10 by default, ships with certain apps that comes installed automatically. While some may prefer this setting many would not. For instance, in Windows 10 some playlists open with Groove Music even if you want it to open with Windows Media Player. Groove Music app in Windows 10 is brand new app that allows you to play your music collection and lets you make and listen to playlists. Normally, you would remove this default app or disable it completely by simply performing a 2-click operation i.e. right-click an app in the All Apps list in the Start menu and select “Uninstall”. Sadly, Microsoft doesn’t allow you to easily uninstall this built-in Groove Music app in the usual way. As the last option, you can resort to using a Windows Powershell cmdlet to have this application completely removed. This tutorial will apply for computers, laptops, desktops,and tablets running the Windows 10 operating system (Home, Professional, Enterprise, Education) from all supported hardware manufactures, like Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, Toshiba,Lenovo, and Samsung).

WTF? Why do we have to do all this crap to remove this POS annoying app???? Why can't it be removed like any other app because MS wants to remove any control from users the whole OS is a Fkn spy ware.. Window 10 Sucks no wonder they were bugging the shit out of everyone to upgrade to this OS to the point they were making it impossible to use your PC until you upgrade to 10 From Vista and after every thing Sucks with MS. Last decent OS and the best OS was Window XP where users have any control. Fuck MS Fk this carpi app grove...!

Hi, I did everything on your video, however when i go to app and features and scroll to see if Groove was removed, I still see the app on that list. There is button with an option to uninstall groove , does this means the app was not removed? I restart the laptop after I followed instructions on your video. Thanks

Guys, in terms of performance, Groove Music is better, since there's a simple UI, which makes it faster for someone to understand it. It does what is supposed to do, play music and just a bit more. Windows Media Player or iTunes are multimedia managers, which is a bit more than just a regular music player. What Microsoft did in Windows 10 was they created an app for each thing, We have the Movies app for the videos, Pictures and of course groove for music. So comparing Groove music to any of these other programs is pointless. To be honest, i prefer having separate apps, since we know that when an app like iTunes gets slow is because of all the functionalities and features it has and the organization. Same thing with Windows Media Player.

I removed it off my HP but won't allow me on this Acer. I wished I never bought Acer . Never again.
S E (9 months ago)
Yes, but Acer is different set up not sure. Also trying to get rid of micrsoft edge explorer. I turned it , all the let me do ,off cause it was stopping my printer from printing. I hate being controlled and messed with new tech. Those upgrade installs you don't know what else spying tracking data stuff. Just might take them both in . I don't want slowing changing my settings period. I had Macafee anti virus it can free with my Bell service . Unstalled it cause it was slowing my computer. Just not the same as Windows XP.. the old days.. lol

Strange...did both computers come with Windows 10 pre-installed?
S E (9 months ago)
Yes

So this method did work on your one machine?
Adorath 100 (10 months ago)
Thank you, it's ridiculous that we have to do this to remove that app.. The only music app that I want to use that requires Internet is Spotify. Other than that, I'd rather use Windows Media Player.

Sir, much obliged. Thank you, for bringing my frustration to an immediate HALT! When working in the music section of the computer; that, "Zune/Groove" app shows up. I don't like an app stepping into the "private" (lol...is anything "private/sacred"?) sector of the computer. We sure do appreciate your assisting us in this matter. Thank you, once again. Howard

EW Groove is bad
PokéKid (1 year ago)
you have to sync all music on to a device if you do it through the apps, lmao what are you talking about. if you want to drag music on to your device default than you need to learn how to use a pc lol. just go to your connected devices, open up the device with your phone name and find the folders. Itunes blows away groove, groove is horrible if you want to remove music from grove, it deletes it from your pc. grooves layout is the worst ever and it has constant ads. you cant even continuously play music from a folder and when you add music it jsut crams it together. its just advertisement, you cant say groove is good or better, thats an understatement to music ingeneral. windows media player is on the pc for a reason still cause thats the actual windows media app, groove is just offers. groove has pointless options too like moving music from a better music player to it WHY would i do that lmao.

You can't even drag and drop music into iTunes on your phone, you have to sync it. If you want to add a movie to your phone you have to sync through iTunes. My friends that own iPhones ask me how to use iTunes because they can't figure out how to add their own music to it and the UI is horrible. It's great if you buy all of your media from Apple.
MistyWeather (1 year ago)
lol OK itunes is better anyways

Groove is fantastic, much better than iTunes especially after the latest update.
Not The One (1 year ago)
I'm trying to figure out why you would want to remove Groove. It's the best music player on W10.
Mαŕ ouane (4 months ago)
Because i have errors that are impossible to be fixed -_- stupid app i tried everything but i couldn't fix it ...
PokéKid (1 year ago)
what? windows media player is the best music player on windows, its made for windows lol same reason for why itunes is best on apple product, its made for apple. the reason people want to remove grove is because they have music experience (unlike some)
CoBByC (1 year ago)
why did you go watch it then? or even comment
mike0311guns (1 year ago)
Good to know But I actually like the new version of Groove.
James Wood (1 year ago)
Awesome. And interesting they call it Zune.
Steeve 転 (11 months ago)
i am very certain , they do that to hide it , so you have a hard time actually uninstalling it
MDTechVideos (1 year ago)
Sure it is related to the product in some way.
