    How to go about deleting WindowsApps folder?


    I installed forza on my games drive and after uninstalling it I still have Windowsapps and WpSystem, Wpsystem just doesn't respond when I try to delete it and Windowsapps tell me I don't have permission.

    Anyway I can go about deleting these?

    Windowsapps is a protected system folder. You cannot delete it.

    Thanks for the response, I ended up just formatting the drive quick since it was nearly empty anyway to get rid of them.

    If you want to be careful about installing and uninstalling then you might want to invest in something like
    Revo uninstaller it can track an installed program and remove leftovers.
    A bit safer then just deleting folders.

    That is an excellent suggestion. Even without the tracking on install, Revo digs pretty deep, safely. And has a Forced Uninstall option for the really tenacious ones. Good tip, @thomaseg1
