When using SCCM has anyone found the best solution to fully removing Microsoft Quick Assist from Endpoints on Windows 10 and 11?
any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
 
I think it is possible to uninstall the Quick Assist app on Windows with the below PS script. If you have some test devices, you may try this script and let me know if that works.

Code:
# Check if Quick Assist is installed
$checkQuickAssist = Get-WindowsCapability -online | Where-Object {$_.name -like "*QuickAssist*"}

# If installed, uninstall Quick Assist
if ($checkQuickAssist.state -eq 'Installed') {
  Write-Host "Uninstalling Quick Assist..."
  try {
    Remove-WindowsCapability -online -name $checkQuickAssist.name -ErrorAction Stop
    Write-Host "Quick Assist uninstalled successfully."
  } catch {
    Write-Error "Error uninstalling Quick Assist: $($_.Exception.Message)"
  }
} else {
  Write-Host "Quick Assist is not installed."
}
 
Got it. Quick Assist is not a Windows capability on Windows 11, it's an app. So you cannot use the get-windowscapability cmdlet here. You'll have to use the command Get-AppxPackage *QuickAssist* | Remove-AppxPackage to uninstall the Quick Assist from Windows 11.

Okay makes sense, I have removed it successfully from Windows 10 device (test box)
Re-installed Quick assist from MS Store, re-ran the script and it thinks its not installed, so I right in thinking on "Windows 10" it is "Windows capability" and if you remove and re-install it from Store it must install as a "AppxPackage"
would it just be a case of modifying the script you share with "AppxPackage" commands in ?
 
On both Windows 10 and Windows 11, you can use the below command to remove the Quick Assist:
Get-AppxPackage *QuickAssist* | Remove-AppxPackage
