Windows 10: Uninstall third-party app installed from Store? Solved

  1.    19 Oct 2016 #1

    Uninstall third-party app installed from Store?

    I can't find the answer to this in tutorials.

    I have just installed Video Trimmer Guru from the Store and can immediately see it will not fit my requirement, therefore I want to uninstall it - but I cannot see how to do it. When I right-clicked and selected Open Folder Location, it merely led to a shortcut.

    Sod's law, it took me ages and lots of Googling to get the Store to populate, I was looking for the promised Windows Movie Maker replacement

    There are third-party apps to remove apps, but I'd rather seek help from a trusted source, so here I am - thanks if you can guide me.

    (I don't have tiles, I have a Win7 interface.)

    Aww, thank you for putting me out of my misery so quickly, Brink.

    I must apologise for not finding it for myself - Tutorial Index A only displayed up to Account... and I looked in members' video tutorials as well, and I couldn't find anything under Apps or Uninstall - I did try, honest I won't forget (nowadays, that could be a lie).
