    How do I clear app data in Windows 10


    I was letting my sister use the Facebook app on my Dell Optiplex 780 running Windows 10 but she has her own computer now so she doesn't use it anymore and since then I created a new Facebook for college friends. I would like to log into it. Except that my sister's data is still tied to the Facebook app on Windows 10.

    It is so easy to do this on Android but I cannot find out how to do this on Windows 10 and there seems to be no information on Google on how to do this. I could not find a single post about this. Which leads to to believe that it is probably something super easy that I am overlooking.


    How do I do this without removing and reinstalling the app as it will not let me remove the Facebook app.

    The app is not part of windows 10. Why not just use FB on your browser of choice? Yes you can uninstall the app and then reinstall it and then set it up with your credentials.

    As I already mentioned, I am already logged into Facebook on my personal account through a browser that is set to auto log me in. I need the app for my school account.

    The tutorial you linked me to is incorrect. There is no 'apps and features' option in settings. I even tried searching for a setting and still didn't show up.
