    Can I uninstall "Mail and Calendar", "Store" and "MsOffice Desktop"?


    Can I uninstall (permanently) from my Win10 system:

    - "Mail and Calendar" (I want to use Thunderbird email client instead)
    - "Store" and "Wallet" (I never want to install Apps+Programs from MS Store)
    - "Microsoft.Office.Desktop" (I want to use LibreOffice resp. an older version of MS Office instead)
    - "Microsoft Windows.SoundRecorder" and "Microsoft.WindowsCamera" (I want to use different Non-Microsoft camera+soundrecording tools)

    Does any of the mentioned Apps cause a harm to 3rd-party programs (with a similar functionality)?

    Does for example an uninstall of "Microsoft.WindowsCamera" also remove the driver of the notebook camera so that other cameras tool
    cannot use it any more?

    Can re-install them at least later again?

    Hi, first, you don't need to uninstall Mail to use Thunderbird.

    However, if you wish to uninstall these- or any other UWP app listed there, see the Tutorial section:
    Uninstall Apps in Windows 10
    Option 4

    Note choices of uninstalling from all or just current account.

    Store:
    Best not to fiddle. Note you need this to install language packs and Edge extensions, for example.

    MS Office- you can uninstall that of course, but you can also have more than one Office suite installed should you wish.
    Can re-install them at least later again?
