In previous versions of Windows uninstalling programs was a headache that involved first finding the Control Panel and then the Add/Remove Programs tool. Now it's a simple process.

  1. Type remove into the Start menu search bar
  2. Click the top option that appears for Add or remove programs
  3. Scroll down the list of installed programs to find the one you want to remove
  4. Click on the program, then click the Uninstall button that appears below it
  5. Confirm that you want to uninstall the app by clicking Uninstall in the pop-up
  6. Click Yes when User Account Control asks if you want the app to make changes to your device
  7. The program will then be uninstalled

Uninstall programs in Windows 10

Windows does a great job of removing programs, but sometimes it can be slow and traces can be left behind. In such cases it can be preferable to use a separate uninstaller utility.
