    Uninstall in "Apps & features" = Uninstall through other Win tools?


    When I read Win10 tutorials about uninstallation of previously installed programs then they always refer to the dialog "Apps & features" to uninstall them.

    I wonder whether it is possible to uninstall the same programs as well with the well known (old) Win7 uninstaller tools like Reve Uninstaller, HiBit Uninstaller, NirSoft UninstallView,.....

    Are the Uninstall Feature exactly the same?

    In other words: Can I use the old Uninstaller tools as well in Win10 or does deinstallation of an App in Win10 require more management than under old Win7?

    Thank you

    Hi, you need to distinguish between the 'new' apps which do not use exe's and dll's and traditional 'desktop' programs (as per Win 7) of course. For those which come with Win 10 Powershell commands (see tutorial) are needed. Otherwise, use the Uninstall option.

    The latter ('desktop' programs) behave in exactly the same way as you are used to in Win 7 because the structure and use of registry remains exactly the same. Thus for these, Revo, Ccleaner, Geek uninstaller... are as relevant as they have always been.

    And remember:
