    All this apps you can see with poweshell:

    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Select Name, PackageFullName

    For example: twitter, xbox, zune, minecraft, skype, officehub, 3dbuilder, solitair and so on.

    This installed software, but not visible under applications.

    I can see where this could be helpful. In the meantime if you are wanting to remove them, I would use rather a custom tool in Inventory, or a PDQ Deploy package if you have that product as well.

    Sort the AppXPackages you want to remove, and then loop through and pipe them to Remove-AppXPackage. You'll have to look at the help to see if -Confirm is a required parameter for the Remove cmdlet, as I'm not sure off the top of my head. but if it is a simple Remove-AppXPackage -Confirm:$false should do the trick nicely.

    Example:

    Get-AppXPackage | Where { $_.Name -match "Twitter"} | Remove-AppXPackage [confirm:$false]

    Thanks I know this remove option and already used it.

    I block the store apps with a GPO, but sometimes a app slips through, for example if a local user account is used and the GPO doesen't kick in, suddenly a new app appears.

    Creating a Report with unwanted apps and deploy a automatic uninstall would be nice.

    You're doing everything right it seems! We go so far as to block all the local accounts too except for the ones we set via GPO, so controlling the apps with GPO does the trick nicely for us. 

    I'd go ahead and move this over to a Feature Request, or I can do that for you if you would like.
