There are various preinstalled apps in Windows 10, but I’ve never used the Dolby Access and some may wonder if it will be unnecessary in the future.
Even the software that was installed arbitrarily will always be upgraded automatically, so the application itself will take up space, and the temporary file of the upgrade will slow down the whole operation of Windows 10.
Should I remove it? This article explains the safe uninstallation method.
What is Dolby Access? Do I need it?
An app made by Dolby that provides realistic sound reproduction. Delivers groundbreaking sound technology that delivers immersive, “moving” sounds that draw you into the action scenes of games and movies.
If you’re not playing games or watching movies on your computer, you don’t need to use Dolby Access.
How to remove with mouse
Go to [Start Menu]-[Dolby Access] and right-click on [Dolby Access].
Click [Uninstall] and run it to remove the app. However, if you can’t see [Uninstall] with mouse click, use the advanced method.
Send a command from the keyboard to Windows 10 to remove it.
Call the app “PowerShell”. Right-click on the taskbar and select [Taskbar Settings].
There is a switch that is wrote “Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu When I right-click the start button or press Windows key + X”. Change to On position.
You can now close this setting screen.
Right-click on the start button. Then, there is a display of [Windows PowerShell (admin)] in the middle, so open it by left click. If you may be asked Go or Cancel, select Yes to open Windows PowerShell.
Put in the Windows PowerShell screen the following character string from the keyboard.
Get-AppxPackage DolbyLaboratories.DolbyAccess | Remove-AppxPackage
Type and press Enter, so you can remove Dolby Access.
If you are in trouble
There are other ways to start Windows PowerShell, so if the above doesn’t work,
(1) Right click on the start button. Then, there is [Search] menu at the bottom, so open it by left click.
Type PowerShell in the search box, and left-click [Run as administrator].
(2) Follow the list of apps in the start menu, display [Windows PowerShell], right-click and click [Run as administrator].
