How do I Uninstall Microsoft Windows 10 built-in app Alarms and Clock, since it Alarms every 7 am contrary to what the App says "No Alarm" set up. I tried going to the Settings>System>Apps & Features>Alarms & Clock but I cannot uninstall through this route.

Need help to Uninstall this App. Thanks.

Hi again, Johnw,
Thanks for the instruction publications you sent. Read it initially but after
reading that it will take some efforts to reinstall, I like the app, I will first find out
how to just remove the Alarm setup only instead of taking out the entire Window App itself.

Big Help, though. Thanks.

Hi Johnw, I went to Alarms and Clock and was able to remove the alarm setting. Then, I
restarted the system and, this morning, the alarm did not set off. As I said earlier, I still want and can use that App so I did not want to take it out completely.

Thanks for the the 3 addresses related to taking out the Alarm and there were other topics in the how to geek,com I can use.

Hi Johnw, After all the adjustments I made on the App, Alarms and Clock, the alarm set off again unexpectively this morning at 7 am. Upset with myself, I went back and opened the "How to geek.." that you sent and went to the Windows Powershell and followed the instructions how to remove the MS Alarms and Clock app.

Some of the prompts in the "How to geek ...." were a little off but on the command prompt, I just copied the command to retrieve shown below the instructions and it took out the Alarms and Clock app. To verify, I went to the table of contents listing the apps in the system and it was not there anymore.

The System's Apps and Features while it showed Alarms and Clock app it did not allow to uninstall the App. - FYI only from what I got.

Thanks

Ray

I guess you worked it out Ray, I was in the process of trying to get my head around it.

Johnw, I thought I took out Alarms and Clock thru the PowerShell, In fact, I did, but, believe it or not for 2 days the Alarm set off at 7am. So, going back to the PowerShell I Uninstall it again, each day. I don't really know what's going on; but, one day I checked the listing of apps on the left side of the start Menu and the Alarms and Clock app re-appeared which I took it out again with the PowerShell.

I wonder if I am doing it right what I fill in on what the Powershell ask. So, I included below what I did -- ( for sure, the Uninstall removed the Alarm/clock app) - - -
